What You'll Get
Much like sea turtles, robots with water wings, and inflatable tumbleweeds, amphibious vessels can both scuttle across the beach and float on water. Enjoy both land and sea with today's Groupon to Parrots of the Caribbean in Madeira Beach. Choose from the following options:
- For $10, you get a 90-minute amphibious tour for a child (ages 4–12; up to a $20 value). Children ages 3 and younger ride for free.
- For $13, you get a 90-minute amphibious tour for a senior (ages 55+; up to a $26 value).
- For $15, you get a 90-minute amphibious tour for an adult (ages 13–54; up to a $30 value).
Parrots of the Caribbean's amphibious vessels ferry up to 38 passengers across a coastal stretch of land and sea during 90-minute tours. The voyage unfolds with a drive along the scenic sandscapes of the Madeira, Treasure Island, and St. Pete Beaches, as a guide entertains guests with historical tidbits about local geography, throws out trivia questions, and snaps photos of passengers hugging Florida's largest grain of sand. The captain then aims the Coast Guard–approved trolley boat seaward and buoys the passengers out into Boca Ciega Bay, where seafarers can spot marine birds, fish, the occasional pod of dolphins, and a gaggle of water-skiing mermaids. After about 60 minutes of cruising, the schooner aims its rudders toward land. Parrots of the Caribbean's fleet of amphibious trolley boats sports air-ride suspension for smoother rides as well as automatic side windows that shield passengers from raindrops and kamikaze attacks from flying fish.
Although Parrots of the Caribbean sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
