Panama City Beach 2 Hour Private DOLPHIN & SNORKELING Tour
On your private dolphin tour, your privacy will be ensured since your boat will have just your loved ones or group, and the captain. Keep in mind that the Coast Guard has set the maximum number of passengers at 6, kids of all ages included.
In the course of your excursion, you will visit Panama City Pass and explore the area where St. Andrews Bay and the Gulf of Mexico converge. This is where we locate dolphins and will show you how to get in the water and see them up close.

For Larger Private, Family Group Dolphin Tours
Have the time of your life swimming with Panama City’s local wild bottle-nosed dolphins
You can motor in our boats built for cruising while watching beautiful dolphins in their natural environment and swimming with them.
Our boats are actual dive boats so the children will love finding and seeing the dolphins and having the opportunity to snorkel in the water just like a real SCUBA diver.
Compared to other bigger tour boats that have a capacity of up to 175 tour goers, this Dolphin Tour boat carries a maximum of six passengers, including kids of all ages. Now, larger groups always create lots of noise, which disturbs the dolphins and drives them away. The best thing is that we will expertly get you in the water fast, and most importantly, without scaring the dolphins away.
With the professional guidance of your captain, you’ll be able to enter the water and watch the dolphins at very close range.
Swimming parallel with the dolphins rather than swimming toward them or reaching out for them (this is also illegal), we will allow the dolphins to come to us (best, most ethical method).
Swimming with the Bottle Nose Dolphins
You and your group will get into the water before the dolphins get there. In this manner, the dolphins will get curious and instead of swimming away, they’ll be drawn towards us. Considering the dolphins are wild animals, the best way to arouse their curiosity is to act uninterested in them. You can relate this to people who only seem to get interested in someone they are dating when that person shows the least indication of caring. Mom can explain this phenomena to you easily, because this is likely how she met your dad.
Snorkeling Shell Island in Panama City Beach FLORIDA
During the second leg of your excursion, you’ll come across the best of what St Andrews Bay has to offer in terms of wildlife. These include birds like herons, ospreys, and pelicans, underwater marine life like hermit crabs, sea urchins, sea horses, blue crabs, and starfish, plus all the animal life on Shell Island. Explore Shell Island for sand dollars and shells. You can also go snorkeling on grass flats and explore St. Andrews Bay along the Gulf of Mexico.
After reaching your snorkeling spot, your able captain will enter the water alongside you and guide you on the best way of locating marine life like seashells. By choosing this private tour, you will be able to choose how to pass your tour time so that it can be as exactly as you had envisioned it.
All snorkeling is waiting for you on the boat AT NO EXTRA CHARGE. For your refreshments, the onboard cooler will have Capri Suns and/or complimentary bottled water. You are also welcome to bring your own beverages, snacks and BYOB.
