How we offer the most hands on boat tours in Panama City Beach, Florida.  

Our captains are highly trained and experienced in spotting, observing, and interpreting dolphin’s behavior and movements.  We do whatever it takes to find you wild dolphins to interact and swim with.  We will take you to common hang outs where dolphins congregate, and you will be able to get in to swim and get a closer look at them.

On our boat tours we take you on the Gulf of Mexico side of Shell Island to see and swim with the dolphins.  We place the boat at a safe distance and instruct you when to get in the water to get a closer look and mingle with them. Once we have spent time with the dolphins which is usually an hour, we take you to the bay side near the shore of Shell Island, to swim, snorkel, collect shells and sea life. The water is calm and perfect for both children and adults.  Our captains will get into the water with you and show you all the sea life that Shell Island has to offer.  Our captains will grab puffer fish for you, show you how to find sand dollars, crabs and starfish. Our captains will give you an educational overview of all these species and of the local ecosystem.  This is a guided snorkeling experience to accommodate all skill levels.

Great for kids of all ages.

We do not have a minimum age requirement to go on our tours. We regularly take infants up to adults on a daily basis.   Our captains are great with children of all ages and will help them find sea life and accommodate them in any way possible.  We strive to make sure the kids have a great time and feel safe.

2 HOUR NON-PRIVATE DOLPHIN TOUR |  $55 PER PERSON

Our 2 hour DOLPHIN AND SNORKELING tour is the most common tour we offer.  2 hours is enough time to swim with dolphins and snorkel by Shell Island.  On this dolphin tour we take you to the Gulf of Mexico side of Shell Island.  You will see and swim with the resident pod of wild dolphins.  Once we have spent time with the dolphins we will take you to our snorkeling location. Our location is on the bay side of Shell Island.  Approximately 100-500 yards off the shore of Shell Island. Depending on tides and conditions we select a location that will be best suited for that day,  we will chose a location that is appropriate for both children and adults.  Our captains will get into the water with you and show you all the sea life that Shell Island ecosystem has to offer.  Our captains will grab puffer fish for you, show you how to find sand dollars and starfish, and give you an education on the local eco system and Panama City Beach.
