Overview

Cruise to Shell Island and search for wild dolphins on a catamaran sailing trip from Panama City Beach. The catamaran’s broad, stable deck makes it a comfortable alternative to smaller boats prone to rocking in the waves, and since it’s stocked with paddle boards, snorkeling gear, and a waterslide, it’s the perfect base for playing in the clear water off Shell Island.

This was so fun for our whole family. My SIL & I had kids from 19-5 and they all enjoyed themselves. We all loved the music and the crew was stellar! We found hermit crabs, sea snails & sand dollars. Others found a variety of Star fish. I recommended this to a friend visiting this week and I would absolutely go again. Great job to the crew who made the experience so fun. They were accommodating, pleasant and friendly and that’s hard to find these days. Thank you!

Very friendly crew! Our boys first snorkel experience and they really enjoyed themselves. Luke was a very personable crew member and we enjoyed talking to him about various things while sailing to the island. They had fun things for the passengers to do. Good experience and would recommend to anyone wanting to experience snorkeling for the first time.
