Great road trip to and from the beach, amazing boat trip while watching the dolphins and cheap drinks on board. It was a really good vibe overall, with nice music and great guides.

The beach was beautiful; white sand, blue water, tropical palm trees and colored buildings set a nice vibe.

What made this trip excellent to me was our guide to and from the beach; Madeleine. She was so professional, kind, easy to talk to and she was very smart. She genuinely loved her job and it showed!

This trip surpassed my expectations. Every aspect of the day was very well organised and went like clockwork. If you take the lunch option you will not be disappointed. The cruise was great and lasted nearly two hours in total and we were lucky enough to see dolphins. Madeline, our driver and guide, was top class. Friendly and knowledgable, she went the extra mile to make sure we had a brilliant day. I will certainly be using Florida Dolphin Tours on my next visit to Orlando later in the year.

Our trip was amazing! Clearwater Beach is beyond gorgeous. The weather was perfect and we had enough time to have lunch, hang out on the beach, and participate in a dolphin encounter cruise. The cruise was so much fun. The guys on the boat were excellent and made sure we had a good time. We were able to see dolphins multiple times and was even lucky enough to see them riding the wakes of the boats. I would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone!

The experience would of been better if we drove ourselves to the beach. You pay all the money for a "12 hour" excursion that was only barely 9. By the time we got there, went in the dolphin boat and ate the lunch that came with it there was NO time to enjoy the beach
Save your money and just drive down to enjoy the area in your time.The tour guide on the bus was awful, had no knowledge of what she was saying. Then she kept screaming in mine and other passengers ears with her microphone.

Thank you for your comments. Many of our guests do not have cars and take this trip as a way to escape the busy Orlando area. With travel time ( more than 2 hours in each direction) its is a 12 hour day. I am sorry you did not enjoy your day

The bus ride and staff Brad and Linda was amazing !!! They was very kind. They were very attentive to our needs and accommodated us well . The boat tour is what I rate as poor . After waiting in the hot sun for an hour to board the boat , we finally was on it my kids were excited but unfortunately the boat had issues and the tour was cancelled. It was our last day of vacation so we couldn't reschedule it which sucked that was a big event we planned for our kids.

Thank you so much for reaching out. The mechanical issue on the boat on this day was certainly not what was intended for the day and is extremely rare. As you can imagine this type of issue is out of our control and we do our best to manage when and if it happens. Thankfully this was only a small portion of your day and you were able to enjoy all of what Clearwater has to offer. Thank you again and we do hope to have you back in Orlando soon.

We booked this prior to arriving in Orlando so took a risk on the weather. Luckily everything worked out perfectly. The bus was early to pick us up and got us to Clearwater for 09:30.

The day is a little disjointed in that the dolphin encounter doesn’t start until 1pm. The beach is stunning and the boat tour is really entertaining. We thought it might be cheesy at the beginning with the option to have a picture taken and cocktails, but the crew do leave you alone if you want to be.

They boat run a reasonable drinks package of unlimited beer for $16. We didn’t take advantage given the long journey back to Orlando.

The lunch is functional and earthy but all in all the package is really good value and Jim and Eddie did everything to get us back at a reasonable time.

Definitely would recommend this tour.
