The Most and Closest
Dolphin Sightings on Clearwater Beach


How long are the tours?

They are approximately 1 hour to 1 & 1/2 hours(between 60-90mins) depending on where the dolphin are located and take you for a narrated tour of Clearwater Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico(weather/winds permitting) that combines the wildlife with the rich history of the area.

Will we see dolphins and what time of trip is the best for sightings?

We see dolphins approximately 95% of the time and all of our trips have the same great chance of seeing amazing dolphin sightings. They are wild animals so if we are unable to see any we do offer a second trip for free. Our suggestion is to try and take the tour towards the beginning part of your time in Clearwater and for the off chance you do not see any dolphins you have the time to take advantage of our complementary 2nd trip.

How many passengers can the Little Toot hold?

The boat can hold up to 30 passengers and 2 crew members.
