This trip was worth the money! It is a full 4 hours, you get a 1/2 day on a boat, get to swim with dolphins and explore Shell Island. The crew is experienced and safety is number one. My girls are 9 and 11 and loved it. We would do it again.

We took one of the 4 hour trips today and it was well worth it. Dennis was an extremely good guide. We had several encounters with the dolphins, the first one being a face to face experience. The dolphin played with our group and swam around with us for a decent amount of time. We also were taken to the... More

The dolphin swim was, by far, the best part of our entire Florida trip. The staff was courteous and knowledgeable. We were allowed to bring a cooler with lunch and waters are provided. They have a chest in the back of the boat for towels and any other gear that you don't want wet. We saw lots of dolphins and... More

Dolphin excursion was great, but many boats to see them. The captain was very familiar with natural habitat and environmental care.

My son wanted to "Swim with the dolphins" for his 15th birthday. I researched the various offerings in Panama City Beach and came across Water Planet. The price was right and we made our reservations. There were four in our party, myself and three 15 year old boys. We had the boat to ourselves with two interns and Captain Roseanne.... More

What a wonderful thrill to go on the dolphin four hour tour! We have come to the gulf for the last three years and have taken this tour every year. The first year, we were staying in Fort Walton Beach, we were talking to some other tourists and they recommended this tour. So, we travelled to Panama City and had... More

Our dolphin experience with Captain Roseanne was awesome! She is very knowledgable about the dolphins & their behaviors. It was obvious that she wanted us to have the best possible experience & we DID! We were within arms reach of the dolphins several times during our adventure. One pair of dolphins even stopped to check us out & rubbed against... More

We had a great afternoon with Roseanne! She took us right where we needed to be to swim next to the Dolphins. It was AMAZING! Our kids were so excited. We saw a sea turtle, dolphins, snorkeled a ship wreck, and found sand dollars. This was an excellent day!
