    Had a great day relaxing, wasn't packed, see was warm. Nice break from the parks. Only thing would be the drive from Orlando to clear water, yes they say it is about a 2hour drive each way but that's not including the hour and half spent collecting the other passengers. I do think it was worth it, but maybe just warn those who will be first to be picked up.

    Amazing experience! PJ was a wonderful tour guide! Everything was so planned out and easy to follow from getting on the bus to where we needed to go for the tour while at the beach. While on the Sea Screamer we got to experience so many dolphins jumping out of the water through our waves directly behind our boat. Hands down an experience we will never forget. My husband and I really enjoyed this tour and would absolutely do it again!!
