We did the Sunset Cruise again this trip to Clearwater Beach and once again, had a great time. Groupon had another deal where 2 people could go for $25 instead of the regular price of $28 each. We made our reservations a few days ahead based on weather forecasts (required if using a Groupon, but as the guy at the... More

The staff was very nice, but it is just a boat ride. It's a hit or miss if you see dolphins. We were under the assumption we would see one from their website, but we only saw the fin of one.

Went with my family on Sunset Cruise and took option of unlimited drinks for 2 adults and 2 kids. We were informed upon boarding the crew worked for tips and were reminded many times throughout the cruise also. Crew were pretty friendly and the cruise experience was OK (Starlite dinner cruise was better but more expensive). Drinks were sweet wine... More

This trip guaranteed dolphins and they delivered! We spotted a pod of dolphins within the first 5 minutes of the trip. We opted for the drink wrist bands which I wish I would not have. Trying to drink "your moneys worth" of beer or wine on a boat in an hour and a half is not a good idea when... More

We booked this trip through groupon when visiting Clearwater. The overall look of the boat was nice and clean. The staff was very friendly. When we departed, we went on the second deck to do more sightseeing. I didn't realize that pretty much all the adults were smoking and drinking. Good place to get drunk since they offer unlimited beer... More

Husband and I took the Dolphin tour. Nice crew, friendly and engaging. The boat was packed and the views were not that exciting. Thankfully the other guests on board with us were friendly and family-oriented. I personally hated the loudspeaker "pep rally" type of ambiance, but others seemed to enjoy the group dancing that ensued on the return trip. I... More

My girlfriend booked this and we could not have been more pleased. The staff was not also nice but very accommodating. The ride was absolutely beautiful and very fun. I would suggest for families, couples, and friends. Great chance to see the area and sunset if you are unable or don't want to rent a boat.

My husband and I took our 5 year old son with us to do the dolphin tour. I was pleasantly surprised by how great it was. The staff made an effort to engage and did a small activity involving my son. We did see several dolphins and just relaxed. Great service!

We have used this boat tour before when guest are in town and really enjoyed it. Seems they have a new policy. Groupon vouchers are charged an extra 1.00 and you have to book online. When you do that it does say you will get your confirmation email within 48 hours! Are they serious???? Why bother! Groupon needs to hear... More
