Took the 4-hour trip on the Avalon Funship Boat with my wife and daughter and my mother and father in-law. We had a great time. Captain Matt was great and gave us some suggestions but let us plan the day. We saw lots of dolphins and birds and also saw a manatee and some stingray. We stopped at two beautiful beaches for shelling and swimming. Would highly recommend this as a great way to see parts of the area only available by boat. And for overall fun. May even do this again for my daughter's 10th birthday party.

We enjoyed an amazing day on the Avalon boat with Captain Matt yesterday, June 23rd. Even though our trip was cut short due to weather, it was an amazing experience that I would recommend to any traveler wanting to observe different parts of Clearwater. Matt was an incredible tour guide that was so personable and led us in the direction of extremely photogenic sights. We also had the chance to slide down the slide into the ocean which was an unforgettable experience as well. Thank you Captain Matt so much for making it a great day, you were awesome!

Marco was a fantastic captain. I had 6 teenage girls with me and he kept them interested the entire trip. He played music for them, he found dolphins and then they followed the boat and jumped jumped the waves, we saw manatees, went to two islands to shell and walk around. The weather was perfect! They had ice and cooler as the boat as well. Highly recommend!!!

We scheduled the day before, but easily got a 9 AM block for 4 hours on a Monday! Captain Dave was better than we could have hoped for. He even picked us up in the boat at a dock outside our vacation rental! He got an idea of what we were looking for (lots of active boating with a stop for lunch which we brought in a cooler), and he delivered! We drove around Clearwater beach and he showed us some special spots. Captain Dave brought us to a calm beach that was great for shell hunting, where we explored for a bit and then had lunch. On our trip back, Captain Dave spotted dolphins and turned the boat around to see if they would play in our wake, which they did! They jumped around our boat. And It was something we will never forget. The boat was spotless and plenty big for our party of 6. Definitely worth the money, and would do again!!

We rented through “Bach Boats” and had a great time. We rented the 6 hour boat day for my bachelorette party. We had 8 of us on the boat and it was the perfect size. There was a cooler for us to bring drinks and snacks. Captain Frank was amazing. One of our girls even lost her Apple Watch in the water going down the slide and captain frank went diving for it and found it!!! We even stopped along the coast and grabbed some lunch!! It was an amazing day.

What a fabulous boat tour my friends and I had. The day was perfect and Captain Randy was an outstanding guide. We were so fortunate to see 6 dolphins that were just a few feet from the boat putting on a show. Stops at 2 islands to collect shells and take a stroll along the beach was so relaxing. Would highly book a tour with Captain Randy....very knowledge about the area, so pleasant and was easy to communicate with prior to our trip. You will NOT be disappointed!

Fantastic 4 hours spent on captained pontoon with upper deck and slide. Captain Brian was professional and very knowledgeable of local waterways and perfect beach stops. He made sure we enjoyed ourselves and found and engaged several groups of Dolphins that rode along with us on our travels. He provided guidance to ensure our experience was a perfect 10 ! Boat was well maintained and comfortable for our 10 adult passengers.

Highly recommend and we’ll definitely book again.

Would 100% recommend going through this boating service. We were lucky enough to have Captain Dan for the day which made the experience even better. Captain Dan was able to cater the day to our needs and was overall what made our experience with this service the best! We were able to visit 2 private islands where shelling was available. He even brought us to some honey holes for dolphins where we were able to see dozens swim behind the boat! 10/10 boating service and captain!

Matt was such a great host for our bachelorette group! He said he sees groups like this all the time and he was such a trooper and really made it his goal to make this a great experience for us! He helped us set up drinks, music and even pictures and made us have such a fun day! He even helped with assistance we needed with life jackets and such. He had a great attitude and was chasing the dolphins for us. Thanks Matt!!

We enjoyed a beautiful day with family members (all adults) on the gulf/inner coastal waters. We boated, saw dolphins and went swimming off the beach of a small island. Matt was a great captain! Very competent, personable & entertaining! We just sat back, relaxed & soaked up the sun and scenery. Highly recommend!
