The Tropics Boat Tours

 
Enjoy the Gulf of Mexico’s waters on an excursion with The Tropics Boat Tours. Have a blast learning about sea life aboard a tropical-themed 125-passenger catamaran, which takes groups from the intracoastal water of Clearwater Bay out to the Gulf of Mexico. Aboard the double-decker newly remodeled catamaran, groups will spot bottlenose dolphins, sip on lemonade or water, and learn about marine life. Educational programming takes up about one-third of the tour, focusing on topics such as life in the ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, the coast guard, and fun facts about the vessel. Activities include Q&As in correlation with the educational program, getting temporary tattoos, and a dance party.
