Anchored at the beach of the pristine Sand Key Park, Sand Key Paddle Sports arms clients with self-propelled seafaring vessels and sets them adrift on the placid waters of Clearwater Harbor. Paddlers can saddle up on a soft top paddleboard, boogie board, or single or tandem kayak, and then direct their drift toward the many sights and sounds nearby. These may include the vast array of wildlife?including heron, roseate spoonbill, and common moorhen?or the barrier island's natural features, such as the salt marsh and the indigenous sand castles.

This must be how birds feel, he thinks. Up here, the sounds of human life are inaudible so far below, and the senses are heightened so that the hair-tickling sea breezes and panoramic view of the aquamarine expanse seem like the first he's seen or felt. Peacefully floating through the air, the parasailer scans his eyes across Clearwater Beach, watching in awe as boats etch white waves into the blue waters stretching out beneath his bare feet. Champions of fostering exhilarating memories such as this, Gulfside Adventures' staff organizes a host of relaxing and adrenaline-filled outdoor outings for explorers of all ages.

Founded with the goal of introducing visitors to the natural beauty of Clearwater via meticulously planned excursions and activities, Gulfside Adventures' staff of expert guides passionately upholds this vision.

When Brian McInerney reflects on the humble beginnings of Wheel Fun Rentals, he points to his childhood passion for bikes. "As far back as I can remember, I had a real love affair with bicycles," he recalls. During a trip to Italy in 1987, Brian's affinity for cycling blossomed into a full-fledged obsession when he spotted locals' transporter of choice, the surrey. Inspired, he began importing the Italian four-wheelers to a rental business in the U.S. that eventually expanded into Wheel Fun Rentals, now a nationwide web of shops that also loans out bikes, electric cars and mopeds, and man-powered watercraft. Adventuresome athletes can also compete in activities such as surrey scavenger hunts and blindfold obstacle courses navigated via shouted instructions from a seeing teammate or exceptionally long rounds of trial and error.

The thrum of the speedboat's engine carries through the water like an ice-cream truck's jingle. A 4-foot-high wake trails behind, fanning out into a fork as the speed increases and the passengers ready their cameras. Soon, a glistening fin breaks the surface. The first bottlenose dolphin seems to levitate on top of the wave while it bodysurfs for the sheer fun of it, then disappears back into the sea. Its pod follows suit, leaping, splashing, and riding the swells, soaking up the attention of the human spectators.

Sights like this are typical on the Dolphin Racer Speed Boat. The sunny yellow craft skirts across the Gulf of Mexico on 60- to 75-minute trips while up to 125 people lounge on the open deck and the captain narrates the sights of the passing beaches. Ample viewing space ensures that cameras can capture split-second jumps and spins when the dolphins heed the call to play. Whether it's because of the thrill of breaching, the pride in their celebrity status, or an underwater bet to see who can communicate with humans first, the dolphins' presence is virtually guaranteed—the boat offers a complimentary future cruise in the case of no-shows.
