$38 for an All-Day Boat Excursion to Caladesi Island ($76 Value)

At 8:30 a.m. each Saturday and Sunday, The Tropics Boat Tours ferries explorers aboard a double-decker luxury catamaran, navigating the Intracoastal Waterway alongside dolphins and sea turtles in the Gulf of Mexico. About an hour after departing Clearwater Beach, the boat docks on the sands of Caladesi Island. Until passengers head back home at 3 p.m., they're given free rein to swim, sunbathe, hunt for seashells, or look out for wildlife and historic sites on a guided, 3-mile trail hike.

Guests can also choose to relax with rented kayaks, standup paddleboards, and beach chairs and umbrellas. If you forgot your lunch or donated it to hungry gulper eels, snacks are always available at the island café. Children 3 or younger are admitted for free, and children 4–12 regularly ride for $48.

The Tropics Boat Tours

During scenic voyages, the adventurous staff of The Tropics Boat Tours escorts guests through the Gulf of Mexico’s rushing tides, pausing for brief glimpses of bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles, and abandoned bikini bottoms. Aboard a tropical-themed, double-decker catamaran decorated with palm trees, guests take in views of Clearwater Beach's landmarks, including celebrity mansions peppering nearby coastlines, while imbibing beverages.

The crew was super nice and the cruise itself was a great time.
