The Clearwater Beach experience:
Up for a day at the beach? Great idea! Our bus tour from Orlando to Clearwater Beach is the perfect offering for providing a blissful day of sun and sand in the heart of Florida’s gorgeous Gulf Coast. Known as ‘America’s beach,’ this area ranks highly in the national ‘Best Beach’ honors every year.
A popular destination for thousands of visitors every year since the 1950s, Clearwater Beach continues to offer the state’s premier seaside experience, with a seemingly endless expanse of wide, open beachfront.
Today, Clearwater Beach has developed into a destination for all seasons. It is a superb family destination in every sense, with lots to see and do along the uncrowded acres of welcoming, sugar-white sands.
We will whisk you from Orlando to the coast on a comfortable bus tour and set you down in prime beach territory, within easy reach of the gently lapping waves, the many bars and restaurants, the iconic Pier, and the beautiful Beach Walk, a near one-mile stretch of winding promenade that links many of the local attractions.
The sea can reach a bathwater-warm 84 degrees and is rarely chilly, even in winter. The soft sand positively invites you to kick back and dig your toes in. Lunch is provided at a classic beachside restaurant, so you won’t miss the view while you refuel with a tasty meal that highlights the local seafood and other tempting dishes.
And you are free to wander this wonderfully eye-catching stretch of beachfront, including the busy marina (which offers plenty of sea-going delights, including fishing tours and wave-runner rentals), Clearwater Marine Aquarium, and an enticing array of shops and souvenir stores.
This is one of our most popular bus tours year-round and, while we may be biased, we don’t think you’ll find a better beach experience anywhere in the state.

We make no secret of the fact we are huge fans of Clearwater Beach and the magnificent seaside bliss it offers. But there’s more to this area than simply enjoying the luxury of sugar-fine sand under your feet.
Right in the heart of this vibrant, three-mile stretch of coastal chic, you’ll find the Clearwater Beach Marina. And, at the center of the Marina is one of the great waterway experiences Florida can offer – the Sea Screamer.
Now, the Sea Screamer is not just the world’s largest speedboat. It’s not even just the most exciting way to feel the sea spray in your face. But it certainly IS the most enchanting all-round experience with the region’s bottle-nose dolphins, who LOVE to play in the wake of this eye-catching speedster.
Florida was a well-known pirate hang-out in the 17th and 18th centuries – both Captain Kidd and Blackbeard were active here – so it makes sense to offer a taste of those buccaneering times on one of our Gulf Coast adventures.
But don’t worry. No one will be keelhauled or forced to walk the plank—we’ll show you the true, fun way to have a pirate experience, courtesy of Captain Memo’s Pirate Cruise from Clearwater Marina.
Sailing from the heart of gorgeous Clearwater Beach – within walking distance of many of the attractions and the iconic Pier 60 – Captain Memo’s is tailor-made for a genuine family-friendly two-hour excursion aboard the Pirate’s Ransom.
When it comes to some of Florida’s great, undiscovered gems, the new-look Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Clearwater Beach is one of the best. It is a fascinating supporter of marine rescue and rehabilitation.
It shouldn’t be surprising that this is one of our highlight tours, offering the chance to enjoy a real in-depth (no pun intended) experience with this wonderful marine life center.
A recent $80 million expansion project has created a fresh, new vibe to the Aquarium, and visitors are always amazed at how much there is to see and do here – starting with rehabilitation work for a large variety of animals, from dolphins to otters, and continuing through a wide range of experiences, exhibits, and additional programs.
Clearwater is a great base from which to sample this most Floridian of experiences, as the waters of the Gulf Coast are positively teeming with the likes of sea bass, white grunt, grouper, pompano, cobia, red snapper, hogfish, and amberjack, as well as the feeding grounds for some of the real headline grabbers, such as tarpon, sailfish, barracuda, blue marlin, and tuna, most of which can be found year-round.
We will put you at the heart of the reel-’em-in action aboard the 90ft Super Queen for a deep sea fishing expedition you will never forget, with a four-hour tour that heads up to 10 miles offshore and is virtually guaranteed to get you hooked into The Big One.
The boat will make three or four stops during the tour, as the fishing dictates, and all your gear, bait, and licenses are included. It’s a perfect trip for beginners. Plus, if you catch that keeper, they’ll even clean it for you, for a small fee, so you can take it home for dinner. Hemingway eat your heart out!
And don’t forget all our Clearwater excursions include lunch, and the comfort of our luxury transport to and from the coast. If you’re looking for a trip to brag about to your friends when you get back home, this is definitely it.
