Owner description: Come join us on a fun filled, narrated sightseeing tour of Clearwater's harbor. Enjoy a relaxing ride while you learn about our abundant wildlife, and view the area's dolphins in their natural environment. Every trip stops at Compass Island where you can collect shells, swim, snorkel and the kids can even hunt for treasure! Dolphin sightings are guaranteed*. Excursions depart from the Clearwater Beach Marina multiple times every day. Spend an hour and a half to an hour and forty five minutes with our highly trained crew in the Clearwater Harbor on board our 40 foot Coast Guard inspected excursion boat. For twenty to thirty minutes during your trip, the boat will stop at Compass Island where you will have the opportunity to shell hunt through thousands of shells, swim, snorkel (gear is provided) and enjoy the island. Our boats are available for charter as well. If you're looking for something more intimate with friends and family on the water we can accommodate. We have done weddings, rehearsal dinner socials, proposals, birthday parties, bachelor parties, anniversaries, school and church groups and family reunions.

We didnt see dolphins so they let us come back for free the next day and we saw them within 5mins of leaving! It was a fun experience!

the Sea Screamer (the big yellow boat) near the maria is awesome. I have been to Clearwater Beach several time and always ride the Sea Screamer. Go to the back of the boat and I always see dolphins. Have your camera ready but be prepared to get wet

First the dolphins are no where to be found. When you come back they will tell you they can't control nature but your next trip is free. The sea shell island is a 20ft by 10ft sand bar in the bay.This cruise is a total ripoff from the start. There refreshments are a can of pop or a bag of chips. Please choose another dolphin trip from anyone but them.

While in Clearwater I have seen dolphins fishing and frolicking at the beach over the years. This last trip I saw a pod of ten right on the intercoastal while having my coffee. However I must add I have taken Dolphin cruises as well the absolute best is Little Toot. Something about the motor the dolphin's love to play in its surf and the do all kinds of flips its amazing. The Pirate cruise is a blast especially for families with kids 10 and under !
