Dolphins are one of the world's smartest animals. Unfortunately, many of their squeaky literary insights are intelligible only to other dolphins and people fluent in dog whistle. Attempt to understand a water mammal with today's Groupon to The Tropics Boat Tours in Clearwater Beach. Choose from the following options:

  • For $9, you get one child's ticket to a two-hour Dolphin Encounter tour (up to an $18 value).
  • For $16, you get one adult ticket to a two-hour Dolphin Encounter tour (up to a $32 value). Although the company may sometimes offer discounted tickets, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.

In its blue-and-white, tropical-flavored double-decker catamaran, The Tropics Boat Tours takes travelers on big-blue adventures in the great Gulf of Mexico. The vivacious vessel holds up to 125 passengers on its double decks, so voyagers choose whether to sail in the shade, alfresco, or scotch-taped to the deck. Departing from Clearwater Bay and traversing Clearwater Pass, the dolphin-encounter tour glides through the emerald-hued waters of the Gulf, where seasoned oceaneers cook up a smorgasbord of maritime insight to bring guests’ attention to interesting facts vis-à-vis the coastal waters. The charter is punctuated by sightings of the gulf's most knowledgeable native, the bottlenose dolphin, as it smiles for the cameras and makes kissy faces. The water coach's complimentary wine, beer, and soft drinks, as well as an ear-enveloping sound system, keep tours scooting along with as much whimsy and liveliness as the Energizer Bunny playing clarinet at a mascot mixer. Tours depart every day of the week at 4 p.m. during September and October.

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.

very enjoyable and easy to schedule!

we went on the 4:30 expedition and it was wonderful! The crew played some quite entertaining and relaxing music and made sure that we saw dolphins. It's Florida so of course it was really hot so just make sure to bring a hat and sunscreen!
