Clearwater, Fla. (March 2, 2020) — The Tropics Boat Tours, promising wild dolphin sightings for its daytime cruise passengers and spectacular Gulf Coast sunsets for its evening guests, is the newest offering on the Tampa Bay CityPASS® bundled attraction admissions ticket. Lasting approximately two hours, Tropics Boat Tours transport passengers from Clearwater Bay to Clearwater Pass and then out onto the emerald-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Designed to provide Tampa Bay area travelers with deeply discounted prepaid admission to the region’s top attractions, each Tampa Bay CityPASS ticket saves buyers 50% off combined admission to the following marquee attractions:
- Busch Gardens® Tampa Bay
- The Florida Aquarium
- ZooTampa at Lowry Park

Tickets are valid for nine consecutive days, beginning with the first day of use. Tampa Bay CityPASS tickets can be ordered as either mobile tickets that are conveniently stored on a traveler’s mobile device or Apple Wallet or as printed ticket booklets that can be shipped directly to the buyer’s home, office or hotel. An added benefit for international travelers is that CityPASS mobile tickets are delivered in the language the buyer selected when they first entered the CityPASS website. For international travelers, it is especially accommodating to have an end-to-end translated experience in the language of their choosing (language options include Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish).
For visitors wanting a firsthand encounter with the Sun Coast’s favorite residents—playful bottlenose dolphins—a Dolphin Exploration Cruise with The Tropics Boat Tours is a must-do. Sightings of frolicking dolphins are guaranteed*. Each cruise also includes fascinating narration about the Gulf Coast’s natural wonders, as well as commentary about the luxurious celebrity mansions you’ll pass along the way. The Tropics double-decker catamaran allows guests to sail in the sunshine on the open-air top deck or relax in the shade on the lower level.
*In the unlikely event that wild dolphins aren’t out to play during a particular tour, guests may return for a complimentary second cruise at a later date. Complimentary return cruise vouchers never expire.
Those who opt for a Sunset Celebration Cruise will want to keep a look out for the legendary “green flash,” an optical phenomenon that occurs when the sun is almost entirely below the horizon, with only its barest upper edge still visible. As the sun continues to dip, there is a moment or two (a flash) in which its upper rim appears green in color.
