This is perfect for the whole family to enjoy. Pick your Brunch or Dinner cruise, decide on a time that works best for you, and kick back to enjoy the view.

Spend a Day Out on the Water ๐ŸŒŠ

A Boat Day

Plan a much needed summertime boat day with A Boat Day! Our experience was nothing short of a great time aboard the Buccaneer FUNship. Picture this: A two-story pontoon boat with a water slide – amazing, right? With 10 of your closest friends and family members, this is the perfect fit to kick back, enjoy some snacks, and waterfront views.
We love the sightseeing opportunities, especially catching a glimpse of dolphins! Better yet, you can stop the boat for some swimming, snorkeling and shelling around the barrier islands around Clearwater. You’ll be in the good hands of their professional Captain and tour guide to make sure your experience is relaxing, safe and unforgettable!
