Overview

Join us aboard the Sea Life Safari for a 90-minute tip into our beautiful intracoastal waters. Look for dolphins, sea birds and other marine life as our staff narrates the scenic ride to a shell island. You'll be a part of the action as a certified Marine Biologist from the Clearwater Marine aquarium performs our net pull and passes around sea life before releasing them back to their natural habitat. A hands-on experience unlike any other cruise! Children and adults of all ages love this experience.

We took this trip as part of our visit to Clearwater Marine Aquarium. It was a nice addition. A short boat ride with narration about the water and wildlife to a tiny shelling area. See the images for details.

Loved this Safari!! It's as educational as it is fun.....and it didn't hurt that the Marine Life expert on board (Tyler) was quite a cutie 😉

My kids are 6 and 7 and loved going on this boat ride. We saw dolphins and the net pulled up lots of fun stuff. We loved that they passed around the starfish, puffer, catfish, urchin, etc. The island that we visited was very small,...More

Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, we can't control the sea life as they are wild, which we do not at all try to hinder. Your feedback about the island has been passed along, but we hope that you will try the trip again in...More
