Get out on the water in search of bottlenose dolphins on this cruise from Clearwater. Aboard a double-decker catamaran, listen to your captain's commentary as he points out luxe mansions along the coast. You’ll cruise out into the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico to see the region's dolphins and learn about their biology and behavior. Pack light, as drinks and snacks are available for purchase on board.

What to Expect

Make your way to the tour's departure point near the Clearwater Memorial Causeway, where you'll be welcomed aboard a modern, double-decker catamaran.

After you pull out of the marina, your captain will point out the luxe mansions on the shore, some belonging to celebrities. Listen to tunes on the sound system, or visit the snack bar for a bite or a drink.

Once you get out into the Gulf of Mexico, the commentary will turn to the biology and behavior of your day's quarry, bottlenose dolphins. Keep your eyes peeled for jumps and dorsal fins, and learn about their role in the Gulf Coast's ecosystem. Dolphin sightings are guaranteed on this tour.

Return to your original departure point at the conclusion of your tour.

Enjoyable cruise around the harbour

Bigger boat than some of the other cruises, which suited us. We bounced out (the sea was a bit choppy) away from the harbour, trying (and failing) to find dolphins. To save stomachs, we went back to the harbour where it was calmer and noticed...More
