Start your day with a hotel pickup from Orlando, and travel toward the Gulf of Mexico—your destination for the day. Hop off your coach and make the most of your free time at Clearwater Beach to relax.

Snorkel gear and other watersports equipment are available to rent, but if your idea of beach bliss is more ‘basking with a book,’ you can rent a beach chair and umbrella instead. Head to Pier 60 to see pelicans gathering for the fishermens’ daily catch, and visit the marina cafe for lunch (if upgrade option is selected).

Upgrade your day trip with one of these options:

Clearwater Sea Screamer Experience: Hop aboard the Sea Screamer, a speedboat that’s said to be one of America’s largest. Cruise around the Gulf of Mexico’s must-see spots including Sand Key Park and Clearwater Harbor, and then hit the open water. Reaching speeds of up to 35 mph (56 kph), the boat zips you around the sea. Hold on tight, and keep an eye out for passing bottleneck dolphins that dip in and out of the wake.

Deep-Sea Fishing Experience: On the calm waters around Clearwater Beach, head out on a deep-sea fishing expedition that’s suitable for first-timers, families, and pro fishermen alike. Taking you to some of the most productive reefs in the Florida area, the trip allows you to catch (or, try to catch) a variety of fish such as sea bass, grouper, tarpon, and more. You can release the fish back to the water, or take them home—just remember to bring a cooler.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Clearwater Beach
After pickup from your hotel, head to Florida’s west coast aboard your comfortable coach. During the bus ride, approximately 1.5 hours from Orlando to Clearwater, your driver will inform you about what you’ll find at Florida’s Gulf of Mexico. When you arrive, explore at your leisure – swim, sunbathe or take a walk – digging your toes into miles of soft, white sand at Clearwater Beach. If you wish, rent a beach umbrella and chair, as well as snorkeling and other watersports equipment – all available on the beach. Browse the souvenir shops for T-shirts or postcards, or head down to Pier 60 and watch the pelicans gather around the fishermen’s daily catch. When you’re hungry for lunch, simply use your voucher (if option selected) at the marina café across the street from the beach; you can eat there or enjoy a Clearwater Beach picnic. Alcoholic drinks, soda and water are sold separately. In total, you’ll have about seven to eight hours in Clearwater, depending on traffic from Orlando. If you wish to upgrade your tour, you can choose from a speedboat ride aboard the Sea Screamer, head to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium or enjoy a dolphin cruise!
Duration: 8 hours 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Sea Screamers of Clearwater
Explore the Gulf of Mexico on a wild and exciting one-hour ride aboard the Sea Screamer -- one of the largest speedboats in America! From Clearwater Beach, cruise past Clearwater Harbor and Sand Key Park as the captain shares interesting facts about the area. Then it’s off to the open waters for an exhilarating ride! Hold onto your hat as the boat screams past resorts and beaches. With its dual twin turbo-charged diesel engines, the 72-foot (22-meter) Sea Screamer reaches speeds up to 35 miles (56 km) per hour. As you zip along the shoreline, look out for bottlenose dolphins that leap in and out of the wake.
Duration: 1 hour 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
The Tropics Boat Tours
Head to the marina for your one-hour dolphin-encounter cruise. Watch for native bottlenose dolphins -- the sea's most lovable creatures -- as they play in their natural habitat. Snap photos of them jumping and swimming along the boat, and admire views of the beautiful shorelines of Clearwater and Caladesi Island. A $10 wristband can be purchased on board for unlimited beer, wine, vodka punch.
Duration: 1 hour 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Clearwater Marine Aquarium
See Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles, river otters, stingrays and sharks. Feed a stingray, watch a dolphin show and have your photo taken with a dolphin. You can also take a behind-the-scenes tour of the animal hospital and visit the theater to watch footage of the aquarium's team rescuing and treating injured animals. You won’t want to miss Winter, the world-famous dolphin whose story inspired the hit movie Dolphin Tale. After losing her tail in a crab trap, she was rescued and fitted with a prosthetic tail. Now she’s healthy and swimming freely! Take a journey inside the movie with re-built scenes, movie images and actual props used in the film.

Thank you very much for your feedback. We agree we were disappointed the boat had mechanical failure as well We can say this is extremely rare and was unfortunate on the day. We are happy you did get to spend the day at the Beach and enjoy the amazing beach. We hope to see you again in the future!

Linda & Brad were a great team of driver and guide smooth comfortable ride Brad informed us about the cities we went through. The sea screamer boat ride was nice we saw some dolphins. The restaurant we had a voucher for Crabbys was good we also got a chance to go parasailing which was very nice.

We are so happy you had a great time! Linda and Brad are certainly great hosts and we will pass this along to them! Clearwater Beach is certainly a relaxing day away from Orlando. We hope to have you back in the near future!

Everything was great!! The tour guide and driver (Linda) were so friendly. I really want to thank Linda our driver for being such an amazing driver! We were very grateful at how our tour guide was very attentive to us. We wish the boat tour had started sooner as it didn’t leave us much time to stay longer at the beach. We got the voucher for lunch and the food was great!! After lunch we only had about 30-45 minutes to be on the beach. The sand is beautiful and the water was so warm. Unfortunately a thunderstorm came in at our last hour, but the bus was ready to shelter us. It was a great experience and a great way to leave Orlando for a bit. I would definitely do it again!!

NOT WORTH THE MONEY

I thought it was a wast of money I could’ve drove myself and booked the tour. You pretty much just paying for a bus drive there
icon Response from Host , Jun 2021
Thank you so much for your feedback. We can understand your point. We do have a lot of guests who don't want to be bothered with coordinating the parking, meal and boat tour and that is where we come in. Parking at the beach is never fun and can be very costly, if you can find a spot. Our tour is to take the stress out of the day and do all the coordinating for you. We do understand some would be just fine with driving. Thank you again for the feedback as this is helpful for others.

Overall this was an amazing day, pick up was a little late, but I didn’t expect it to be on the minute, bus was very nice, but they keep it very cold! Smooth ride I was able to sleep all the way there and back. Your dropped off in a central area in clear water and have around 7 hours there. We left a few minutes after our scheduled departure time. I have no real complaints and loved this trip!
icon Response from Host , Jun 2021
Thank you for taking the time to comment. Clearwater is always a good time. I am sorry to hear the bus was running late. We do make every effort to give exact pick up times and good direction to the pickup locations but sometimes we come across things we cannot control.

Clearwater Beach, Florida

Going to Clearwater beach was great, however the drive was a little long with all the stops to pick people up. I did not realize that we would have to stop at various places before heading to the beach. That information was not given when I ordered my shuttle. Once we were at Clearwater, all was great and beautiful. Had a really great time at the beach.

Hi Amy. Thank you for your comments. Going forward, we will certainly make a better effort to be sure all guest are aware of the pick up schedule.

It was an average trip. The drive took longer that what we expected , on our way back , both kids felt nauseated from the way bus driver was driving. Tour guide was friendly. Booked the sea screamer but if not for the dolphin sighting and show, it would have been A big disappointment. Beach was too crowded , but it was the perfect day to just lounge and relax. Went to Cocoa beach next day ( drove ourselves) and beach was way better! And water temp was warmer.

Thank you for your comments. The lack of dolphins is certainly a bummer. Unfortunately, since they are "in the wild" this sometime happens.
