We already loved Dunedin because of the restaurants and shops, and now we've found another reason to go to Dunedin: the ParrotDise sunset cruise. It was a very enjoyable 2 1/2 hours and a trip I highly recommend. We had seen several of the nearby beaches and were familiar with the Clearwater Beach area, but this gave us a completely different perspective by letting us see those places from the water. Plus, the dolphin watching, the view of a perfect sunset, and the entertaining narration just added to a great experience. Be sure to take a jacket this time of year, but it's just cool enough for it to be exhilarating. We'll absolutely be back again.

My husband and I along with another couple thoroughly enjoyed our hour and a half afternoon cruise out of Dunedin. Matt and Dominique and Captain Jeff did a great job showing us their hospitality and knowledge of the area. As noted in many of the other reviews there is complimentary beer, wine, parrot rum punch, soda, coffee and water during the cruise. There is plenty of room for passengers to move about for viewing the dolphins! On our cruise we saw several dolphins swimming alongside the boat, jumping in the wake! This is a great afternoon out for anyone and we had an awesome time! I forgot to mention - Great Value for your dollar! Highly Recommended!! See you next year when we are back in the area. Julie, Jeff, Ron and Susan

We took the hour & a half afternoon cruise,and had the most awesome dolphin experience with the dolphins leaping in the wake at the back of the boat.
Captain jeff was informative & enthusiastic ,free beer , free wine & rum punch , great music and all for 17.99$ !! Fabulous value !!
This is a relatively new business for Dunedin & I just hope this great outfit gets the support it needs to flourish because its a great asset for the marina .
We will be back.

Whatever your preference, sunset, dolphin, music loud or quiet cruise, this is the right boat at the right price. Just the right size and just the right time frame. Captains Jeff and Matt add just the right touches for a great time on the water

A friend and I had the opportunity to take advantage of the Dolphin cruise this past Saturday with ParrotDise Express. I can't tell you what an enjoyable cruise we had out of Dunedin north to Honeymoon and Caladesi Islands, then south to Clearwater Beach all the way to Bellair Beach area and back to the Marina in Dunedin.
Capt. Matt and Capt. Jeff gave an entertaining narrative along the way - including info. on where the "Stars" homes are located. The boat and
facilities aboard are IMMACULATE! And, in working order! They offer a wide selection of beverages, beer, wine and captain Morgan Punch. All included in the price of your cruise. You are able to bring your own food if you like. They also are very prepared and informative when it comes to your safety and comfort. We were the only boat to see Dolphins this past Saturday - they were not around long. But, they did play with the bow of the boat a bit.
LOVE the DOLPHINS - even after living here almost 20 yrs. I still get excited to see them. We have gone on many of the local boat adventures - this is the best we've tried. Not that the other's are bad mind you. But, these two guys go way above and beyond to give you an enjoyable cruise.
There is even free parking around the marina - can't beat that. If in our area give them a chance to show you what the view is like "from" the water.
The price is 26.75 currently including the free drinks. ENJOY
If you have the time spend some time before or after the trip to walk around Dunedin many local shops and wonderful local cuisine.
