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.
What to Expect
Itinerary

Sail, snorkel & watch dolphins in the beautiful waters surrounding Shell Island aboard "Island Time" a 50 ft sailing catamaran tour boat. You will enjoy snorkeling the shallow grass flats of St. Andrews Bay in search of sand dollars, starfish, tropical fish & other sea creatures. You will then sail the Gulf of Mexico, the crew will hoist the sails while you enjoy the laid back music and your favorite beverage or our famous "Island Smash" rum punch. Friendly dolphins are frequently spotted. The whole family will have a blast on the Island Time Sailing Cruise.

Duration: 3 hours

Location: Island Time Sailing, Treasure Island Marina 3605 Thomas Drive, Panama City Beach, FL 32408

We booked the snorkeling/dolphin trip and really enjoyed it! The staff was very fun, but professional, and did an excellent job of explaining everything! I would highly recommend it, even my (hard-to-please) teens had a blast! 😂

This was the highlight of our vacation! It was a beautiful day with great weather and good travels. While some of us enjoyed snorkeling the others floated and enjoyed relaxing. I would high recommend Captain Chris, Jacob and Hannah.
