2 Hour Private Panama City Beach DOLPHIN & SNORKELING Tour

Our 2 hour private dolphin tour we will reserve the boat for just your family 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.

Panama City Beach Private Family-Group Dolphin & Snorkeling Tours

Seeing and swimming with the dolphins in their natural habitat on your trip aboard super-comfortable boats.

Considering that our vessels are real dive boats, your kids will take great delight in not only locating and watching the dolphins, but also snorkeling in water like actual scuba divers.

Unlike the larger tour boats that carry up to 175 people, this Dolphin Tour carries only 6 passengers (children of all ages included). 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).


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. The dolphins can be finicky and the more we “pretend” they are not there, the more curious they become.

It’s kind of like humans when they are dating, the less you “seem to care”, the more curious they will become. Ask your mmm about this, she probably was in the same kind of situation when dating 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. Shell Island is an exploring heaven for those interested in shells and sand dollars. Snorkel grass flats and discover St. Andrews Bay along the Gulf of Mexico.

 You will arrive at your snorkeling destination where your captain will get in the water with you and show you how to find seashells and other sea life. Booking this private trip will allow you to make the call regarding how you would like to spend your tour time to ensure you spend the time exactly as you dreamed it to be.

You will snorkel to your satisfaction aboard our boat and YOU WON’T PAY AN EXTRA CENT! We will give you access to a cooler on the boat stocked with complimentary bottled water and/or Capri Suns. You are also welcome to bring your own beverages, snacks and BYOB.
