We offer the most interactive 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.

We provide:

  • USCG Certified Licensed Captain
  • Masks, snorkels, lifejackets, drinks and expertise in placing you in the water at the right time.
