While the rest of the country is getting ready to bundle up for fall, cruise season is just warming up for Floridians. Spend the day with family and friends on the water with one of these Florida day cruises.
Try your luck at the slot machines or play against others as you sail across the Atlantic on the Victory Casino Cruise. Before shipping off, reduce driving stress by booking a minivan, motor coach, or shuttle to pick up your party and take you directly to Port Canaveral. While playing a few rounds of Blackjack, Live Craps, EZ Baccarat, and more, munch on food made by world-class chefs and wash it down with complimentary drinks. Between wins, explore the ship’s four decks filled with lounges, sportsbooks, and table games.
Get ready to experience a thrill aboard the world’s largest speedboat like never before. Zip through the Gulf of Mexico at 35 miles per hour and feel the ocean spray glisten your face while the wind rips through your hair. While lying back and enjoying the ride, look at the horizon and see if you can spot a dolphin jumping through the wake of the boat. Some thrillseekers on board have experienced a dolphin sighting only a few feet from their reach!
Take it easy on Clearwater’s harbor and learn everything there is to know about Florida’s aquatic wildlife. Take a trip through the Gulf of Mexico, a popular hangout spot for Florida’s friendly dolphins. After watching the dolphins play in the waves, relax on the shore of Compass Island, where you can swim, snorkel, and search for seashells. Bring your own snacks and drinks to sip or take advantage of the refreshments for sale on board.
Swashbuckle and sail along the Gulf of Mexico out of Clearwater Beach on The Pirate’s Ransom. Bring the whole family and leave the kids to enjoy water gun battles, treasure hunts, face painting, and pirate games on board while you soak up the ship’s bar. As you float across the open water, search the seven seas for dolphins and feel like a real pirate as you test out the ship’s cannon.
