“Fantastic Tour!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

We recently moved to Dunedin Florida and today was our three month anniversary!! This boat ride was a spontaneous choice that we took while visiting our little town's Orange Festival! Captain Jeff and his mate Matt were awesome!! Captain Jeff extended our ride a little more than advertised (to three hours) so that we could enjoy the dolphins!! The ride was amazing, Captain Jeff pointed out areas of interest the entire way! We've been discovering fun things to do for our future company since we've been in Florida and this is by far the coolest activity we've experienced!! We will go again and we will take all of our guests on the ParrotDise Express!! Thank you for a fun anniversary day, you guys rock!!

“Take this cruise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Genial captain and mate expertly maneuvered boat to get dolphin to swim closely alongside for quite some time, visible underwater and frequently jumping fully out of the water. Reddened sky lingered long after sunset as we continued to spot dolphins under the risen moon on our way back to lovely Dunedin marina. Our retirement party of 13 found it easy to quickly get from bow(fun place to ride) to stern, and port to starboard, as dolphins were spotted. I live here and I will do this again.

“Awesome Boat Trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

We went out with Captain Jeff with a group of 33 from our church,... Mostly special needs adults..and we could not have asked for a better trip. We discovered the Parrotdise Express while walking around Dunedin. They toured us all around the north Pinellis beaches and Intercoastal Waterway, showing us dolphins, ospreys, celebrity homes, historical places,... Our gang had a great time! They took great effort to make sure we saw dolphins jumping along side the boat, and even went out of the way a little to avoid some weather. I highly recommend this trip to see the waterways and Gulf of Mexico around Clearwater and north Pinellis County. They really go the extra mile with their clients! Thanks for a great afternoon!

“Best cruise ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We took the dolphin cruise during Memorial weekend, and it was fabulous! Not only did we get a close up view of the dolphins jumping beside the boat, but we saw a huge group of manatees as well!

We also were suprised to see some celebrity homes along the way; the Captains did an excellent job of narrating each landmark and playing the appropriate music to go along with it (nice touch!)

The free drinks were great, they had a really nice variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for everyone. It was also nice to have some snacks available for a reasonable price.

I was pleasantly surprised by how family friendly this tour was, I took my teenage sister and my toddler son, there were also older folks on board and everyone seemed to be having a great time.

I will definitely be coming back to take the sunset cruise with my husband this summer and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

“Wonderful Sunset Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

We are new to the area and took our first family boat ride on the ParrotDise Express. We were very pleased with the friendly crew, wonderful boat tour over 2.5 hours and of course the dolphin viewing experience. Thank you for a very pleasant family boat ride for the price. There were plenty of drinks for all ages and even some chips for the kids to buy as a treat. The sunset cruise is highly recommended with a memorable experience! Captain Jack and Matt did a great job of sharing some history and ensuring dolphin views for all. Thank you and we will definitely suggest this as our "must do's" to guests in the future.
