Experience Extras

Sunset Boat Trip

In the Tampa Bay area, setting out on a sunset boat trip is on the bucket list of just about every visitor. It’s a great opportunity to orient yourself to the famous Florida lifestyle of food, drink and the great out doors.

Kayaking with Manatee

Disney, Waterparks and Universal Studio

Let’s not be ashamed about it - there is a tonne of stuff to do in Orlando, no matter what your age.

Major League Sports

Baseball is a bit like cricket: a gentle game full of quirks and traditions. American football has it’s similarities to Rugby. And Basketball is sort of like rounders. Whatever your American professional sport fix, Florida has a team for you - it’s home to no fewer than TEN major league teams before you even start counting sports like soccer and lacrosse. Tickets will depend on team schedules and availability.
