Let Us Guide You to Paradise

Think about it. You get a friendly, experienced boat captain to drive you around and show you the coolest places. You don’t have to know how to drive a boat or worry about breaking the boat. You can drink whatever you like without concern for the safety of others. Want to go here or there and do this or that? No problem. It’s your boat, your captain, and it’s A BOAT DAY!


Find Your Adventure


Your boat day is a custom, one-of-a-kind experience. We will go wherever and do whatever the group wants. And if you aren’t familiar with the islands and waterways around Clearwater or Indian Rocks Beaches and don’t know what to do, we will guide you to the best possible places to see dolphins and take you to secluded islands and sandbars where you can go shelling, swimming, and snorkeling. Whether you want to float in the water or hang out on the boat listening to music, we are happy to give you exactly what you want.

Dolphin Tours

We love to show you the local wildlife around, including our world-famous population of dolphins. If we’re lucky, we may see some manatees, sea turtles, rays, osprey, and all the other wonderful creatures we often see on our excursions.

Shelling

We take you to islands and sand bars that produce some of the best shelling in the world. Your captain takes you to the locations so you can search for these natural treasures. Enjoy as you hunt for the perfect sand dollar or beautiful shell.

Island Hopping

Go see the ultra-secluded beaches on our world-famous barrier islands. Only accessible by boat, these pristine white sand beaches are great for long walks or hunting for the perfect sea shells. You can snorkel in the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Swim & Snorkel

The Gulf Coast of Florida is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and water sports — whether it’s off the beaches of Clearwater, over the scalloping grounds of Homosassa, or in the clear spring waters of Kings Bay in Crystal River. There are lots of areas to use your mask and snorkel, or inner tube or skis.

Small Groups & Parties


Great for birthdays, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and family reunions. Whether you want to party on a secluded beach, float around in the gulf water, watch the sunset, or boat to a local restaurant, we’ve got what you’re looking for.

Family Fun


Have kids? Great! They’re sure to love jumping off the boat into the water, running on the beaches, building sandcastles, and swimming in the beautiful water. This is an experience they won’t forget.

Family Boating

Boating is one of the great experiences that families can do together, and the memories last a lifetime. We want to make this a day to remember.

Birthday Parties

Bring the cake and the drinks and go do something different! Boating is a great way to enjoy your friends and family while celebrating that special day.

The Best in Clearwater!

I had a boat trip with Captain Randy and it was amazing. His knowledge, great personality and sense of humor made it a 4 hour trip I’ll never forget. He took me to some islands that only the locals go to and it was breathtaking. I cannot wait to book again. Thanks for a beautiful afternoon!

Perfect Tour of Clearwater!

I’ve been coming to the Clearwater area for over 25 years I have never gone about getting a charter but I’ll be sure to go back again I’ll be calling Captain Randy and requesting Jesse to take us on another tour sometime soon! I highly recommend A Boat Day and I hope they persevere through the uncertain times were all facing these days.

Words cannot express how wonderful and grateful we were for the experience and kindness of Randy. We were hesitant to go on our vacation given COVID-19 however this was the perfect way to enjoy the uncrowded beaches and beauty of Clearwater. All from an amazingly well kept boat! Tt was the highlight of our trip!

Best Day of Our Vacation!

We took the afternoon boat ride with Captain Randy and it was amazing. We went to two different islands and searched for seashells, then watched dolphins as they chased after us in the boat. He is so knowledgeable and went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. This was the highlight of our vacation!
