This was our first visit to Clearwater. We purchased this tour through Groupon. This was a perfect family event and we definitely got to see alot of dolphins. Fun cruise and very friendly staff.

Because we didn't see dolphins on our cruise last year, we were able to come back for another cruise at no cost. No issue with dolphins this year!! We saw so many. Captain slowed the boat when they were spotted and crew was great about pointing them out. Cruise is very relaxing and narration by crew very informative. We didn't... More

We had taken this boat tour before and I can truly say that it was enjoyable again. The staff is great. The sunset was really awesome. We have went several times and they use to give us free beverages and a free parking pass which they don't do anymore. We know that they have expenses. The only thing we didn't... More

This was a fun cruise, great price, great drinks! We saw dolphins, enjoyed the narrative of the area and the scenery. It was the perfect amount of time. I'd gladly do this again with out of town visitors or just by ourselves. It was great.

Went for a mid day cruise on New Years day. Was a bit worried it would be a "Rah Rah-Get everyone up dancing!!" type cruise when they had everyone wear name badges.
