Dolphin

We had an amazing time seeing all the dolphin surrounded us. Love being in the water watching dolphins swam right by us! It was priceless and worth the trip!

i couldnt even get on the boat as the guy was worried a month in advance to take a 1 person booking - if they are worried they won't fill a boat a month in advance they should be worried about their business

Great trip! Captain Paul was friendly and gave us the best opportunities to get close to the dolphins.

Just finished with our trip and cannot say enough good things. It was amazing! Able to swim for almost 90 minutes in the midst of a pod of dolphins. Our captain was so patient and kind, and most importantly knowledgeable about the sea life and area we visited. He worked with our 11 year old daughter to make her comfortable... More

Excellent day on the ocean. Capt Ed was very knowledgeable and was very respectful of the dolphins we observed. Swam with a curious dolphin who checked us out and then moved on. Can't wait to do this again.

It was a fabulous 4 hours. Worth a trip to Panama City just to do this. Early May, mid week no other boats around. Excellent instruction about dolphin behavior and safety. Trained helpers swam with us one on one and made sure we saw dolphins the minute we hit the water. At certain times they work with special needs kids.... More

It was a best dolphin experience for me. I only expected to see some of wild dolphins on this trip but I could say I saw about hundred of them swimming around. Swimming with wild dolphin does not like swimming with dolphins in the marine park that I had experiences for many times. You cannot touch , cannot feed, cannot... More
