This is the trip you don’t want to miss on your visit to Tarpon Springs. We take you on an exciting narrated cruise down the beautiful waters of the Anclote River to the Gulf of Mexico. You’ll be looking for dolphins, manatees, birds, the Anclote lighthouse and other historical sites. Our beach excursion allows you to disembark on the Anclote Island to stroll the beach and look for shells.

The crew went way out of the way to let passengers see dolphins up close. We had plenty of time to visit the island to collect some shells. The tour was completely on time. Just a delightful boat tour of Tarpon Springs. The boat has...More
