  • On Monday evening, we will take motor coaches to Busch Gardens.  At Busch Gardens, we will have a reception and buffet dinner from 6:00 - 7:30 pm followed by a Night Safari on the Serengeti Plain from 7:30 - 9:00 pm.  We will escape into the wild African night with our tour guides for an incredible African expedition.  Feel the power of the night as we stroll through the Edge of Africa under the moonlight, then climb aboard our safari vehicles to explore giraffes, zebras, rhinos, and other amazing animals on the Serengeti Plain.  Make memories that last a lifetime with one perfect evening out on the Serengeti Night Safari.

     

    The Sunday morning optional activity below has been cancelled due to low registration.  If you are still interested in this activity, please contact Little Toot Dolphin Adventures directly for tickets.  The marina is only about 2 miles from the hotel and you would need to arrange transportation such as taxi or Uber.

    On Sunday morning, please join us for an optional activity aboard Little Toot Dolphin Adventures.  Climb aboard Little Toot, a forty foot authentic tugboat for an exciting dolphin watching adventure with a narrated sightseeing tour of the Gulf of Mexico and Clearwater Harbor.  Little Toot Dolphin Adventure begins at the Clearwater Beach Marina and heads out for a 1 to 1.5 hour tour starting in Clearwater Harbor.  Throughout the tour, we will tell you some interesting facts about our favorite marine mammal, the bottle nose dolphin.  We continue down the inner-coastal showing our guests the celebrity homes in the area, the whole time keeping an eye out for dolphins.  We then end up heading under the Sand Key Bridge and through Clearwater Pass into the Gulf of Mexico before heading back to port.

    We will meet in the hotel lobby at 10:15 am for transportation to the marina.  The Little Toot tour will begin promptly at 11:00 am.  We will return to the hotel around 1:00 pm. 

    Little Toot is limited to 30 passengers so this activity is first come first serve.  Cost of this optional activity is $45 per person
