Full description

Sit back, relax, and let your driver fight the highway traffic from Central Florida to the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy convenient and complimentary pickup and drop-off from many hotels in Orlando to take the worry out of your day. Find out why Clearwater Beach is one of America’s beaches. Choose between the following tour options offering something for all the family: • Clearwater Beach Day Trip with Marine Aquarium Admission: Meet Winter, the dolphin from the blockbuster movie “Dolphin Tale,” at Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Watch dolphins frolic from the underwater viewing platforms, and learn more about their incredible skills and natural habitats. • Clearwater Beach Day Trip with Pirate Cruise: Set sail aboard Captain Memo's Pirate Cruise for an afternoon of adventure in the Gulf of Mexico. Get lost in the antics of treasure hunts, face painting, water gun games, stories, and dancing. During the cruise, enjoy complimentary beer, wine, and soft drinks. • Clearwater Beach Day Trip with Dolphin Encounter Boat: Venture from Orlando to Clearwater Beach then board the Dolphin Encounter boat for a ride into the Gulf of Mexico. See dolphins in their natural habitat, and watch them play as you enjoy the sun and sea. • Clearwater Beach Day Trip with Deep-Sea Fishing: Explore the beach in the morning then have the opportunity to catch and keep a variety of fish in deep-sea conditions. Receive all the necessary fishing equipment, including a fishing license. This excursion goes 10 miles (16 kilometers) into the gulf, which takes 45 minutes each way. • Clearwater Beach Day Trip with Lunch: This transportation-only trip will whisk you away from the theme parks of Orlando to the powder-white sands of Clearwater Beach. Enjoy a day to do as you please with an included lunch gift voucher for use at a beachside restaurant. Kayak in crystal clear water, or walk the promenade of the resort’s fishing pier. • Clearwater Beach Day Trip and Sea Screamer Boat Ride: Journey out to Clearwater Beach for a thrilling ride on the Sea Screamer – the largest speedboat on the U.S. East Coast. Witness wild dolphins jumping through the wakes created by the large boat. • Clearwater Beach Day Trip with Express Bus Transportation: Choose this express transportation option to avoid all the pickup stops and go directly to the beach. Once there, lounge on the white sand, jump through the turquoise waters, explore the pier, get some fresh-caught fish for lunch, and more.

It was an all-round successful trip. The driver and the contact to the organizer were very nice. There was an uncomplicated WhatsApp contact to confirm the time and meeting point. Even when our taxi didn't come in the morning, we waited a few minutes and we were able to arrange everything through the contact. We felt very safe on the ride and were dropped off right at Pier 60 on Clearwather Beach. The beach and restaurant were only 5 minutes away from the meeting point, so we had about 7 hours to swim, stroll and eat. We received a $20 adult and $10 child coupon for lunch at the CRABBYS restaurant. This was completely sufficient and it was great value for money. At 5 p.m. we went back to Orlando and we were back in the evening.

We had a great time. We were picked up at the first stop (Royal Pacific) so unfortunately that meant an extra hour on the bus both ways. Other than that, the bus was comfortable and the driver and guide did a great job of getting us there. Ate at Crabby’s and it was amazing. Also did the dolphin sightseeing. Really enjoyed that but would probably skip it the next time as it did take two hours of our beach time. I was thinking it was only one. Already looking at dates to go back again. Thanks!

Did the tour with Beach and lunch, food was actually so delicious with a beautiful view. Our tour guide, Paul, was super funny and nice and knew a lot about the area which was super helpful. Bus driver was also great and got us there and back smoothly. Definitely recommend this to people who need a beach day, the area is beautiful and this is the best price you’re going to get, worth probably double what we paid!
