Overview

Get up close and personal with the fascinating marine creatures off the coast of Florida Gulf Coast on this unique Sea Life Safari. The Sea Life Safari is the only cruise in the area that enjoys a permit to pull a trawl net which draws in small fish, sea horses and other marine residents so that you can enjoy some really close encounters.

A trained marine biologist on board ensures that the journey will be as informative as it promises to be rewarding.

There will also be an island stop at the beautiful Compass Island to collect shells that lie in profusion all along the beach and some free time at the delightful white sandy shores of Clearwater Beach.

Listen as the onboard marine biologist from the Clearwater Marine Aquarium describes exactly what you are seeing and points out the various species that will come alongside your boat.

The Sea Life Safari will then make a stop at Compass Island for collecting shells to take home as souvenirs.
