Dolphin & Whale Watching, Clearwater

4.3
#1 of 45 in Tours in Clearwater
Witness Florida's bottleneck dolphins playing in their natural habitat on a cruise along the coast. Setting off along the western shoreline, you'll bask in picturesque scenery as you make your way to Clearwater Beach for a chance to catch some rays looking out across the Gulf of Mexico. Your experienced crew will guide your sightseeing boat to some prime dolphin and whale watching spots, so all you have to do is keep your eyes peeled for these creatures in the glistening turquoise sea. For an extra thrill, opt for a speedboat ride across the waves. Full-day tours often include hotel pickup and shuttle to Clearwater Beach--shorter options take a couple of hours.
