The Tropics Boat Tours recommends using the Clearwater Ferry and parking for FREE in Downtown Clearwater if you are joining the tour during their operating hours on Thursdays - Sundays. This service offers fast and efficient travel across the water, avoiding the traffic on the bridge and the parking on Clearwater Beach. Due to the popularity and development of Clearwater Beach as a tourism destination, parking on-site is limited. There are great options for parking on Clearwater Beach but none of them are guaranteed as they all fill up on a first-come, first-serve basis.
