Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Corporate Coaches purchased the transportation division of Orlando’s Florida Dolphin Tours.

The two companies offer varied, but also overlapping, services to central and south Florida, and this realignment is a major step toward increased efficiency while improving customer service.

Corporate Coaches was founded in 1998 and has grown into one of Florida's largest and most diverse bus operators, with a range of vehicles from limousines to mini-coaches to double-deck motorcoaches providing charter, casino and limousine services. The acquisition of Florida Dolphin’s coaches increases their total fleet size to 70, including 38 Van Hool motorcoaches.

Florida Dolphin Tours, founded in 1996, started by providing scuba diving tours all around Florida. Having successfully transitioned from scuba tours to becoming a full-service excursion and sightseeing company, it currently has 45 different offerings, ranging from swimming with Dolphins and manatees to daily excursions to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and sporting events.
