Take a break from the beach on a boat cruise through the Gulf of Mexico. In addition to helping you spot dolphins and sea creatures, your guide takes your small group to secluded snorkeling locations far from the crowds of Panama City Beach. Snorkeling equipment, light refreshments, and a range of departure times are available for your convenience.

What to Expect
Upon arrival you will be greeted by our office staff, once they have checked you in they will notify your captain and he will then assist getting people getting on the boat, as well as going over important safety instructions. After he informs you and the group on the safety procedures he will then untie the boat and the adventure begins! The captain will start the trip off by taking you through historic St. Andrews Bay to Shell Island, and the Gulf of Mexico. There he will locate the dolphins and give you and the group the best experience possible! After about an hour with the dolphins you and the group will move on to the second part of the trip, snorkeling! You will get to experience snorkeling sunken boats and the many species of tropical fish that live on them, even small children get to experience this because the sunken boats will be in no deeper than 12-14 feet of water. Lastly the captain will take the group to the backside of shell island where he will then anchor the boat in only 3-5 feet of water so everyone can get out. He will then find and show you sand dollars, starfish, and a variety of sea life. once he has shown the group the sea life he will return them back to their homes and then start the journey back to the docks where he will park the boat safely and assist you and the group with anything you may need.

Fun day, but unprofessional and could have been better

I want to start by saying I've done similar tours with other companies before, so I had a certain expectation which was not met. The captain of our boat (small tour with only 5 passengers) was very unprofessional, texting while driving the boat, and on...More

Good times!

We had a very good trip with Captain Dane and his son. We did see dolphins but they didn’t cooperate with our swimming plans. The snorkeling was lots of fun and they had good gear for everyone to use. I very much recommend them!

Thank pc t
