There are many things to do in Panama City beach. The beaches are sugar sand and the sunsets are amazing. Shopping, laser tag, and many choices of fine cuisine are just a few to name. Night life is busy also.

We took this tour on 12-27-2015 It was a Full Moon phase. The Dolphins are slower during this time, and we saw a few, fins and backs only. They were not jumping at all. The crew was fabulous. All questions answered, plenty of feed for Gulls, lots of fun, also has a glass bottom, which I did not see. My... More

We saw a sea turtle, huge ball jellyfish, snorkeled off the Shell island coast over a sunken boat. The price was fairly low. He let us take some drinks & the other... More

The Georgia Crew can't say enough about our experience with our Panama City Beach Dolphin Tour. Dane and John went above and beyond to provide an amazing tour. We saw several pods of dolphins and swam with them up close. A great highlight was seeing a dolphin jump straight out of the water right where our group was swimming. We... More

Diligent about finding dolphins, and enjoyed exploring man made reefs finding blow fish, starfish and other creatures just as much. Great for all ages. Teenager enjoyed it just as much as the 5 year old! Emphasizes safety. Love that his boat did not have the motor on the outside - no way to accidentally hit a propeller while swimming around...

Captain John took the 6 of us out for a blast of a day. We seen dolphins right away. Captain John was patient and took the time to take us to several spots to snorkel, collect shells, etc. We even came up on an AMAZING group of Manta Rays, there were thousands of them, even Captain John has never seen...

Highly recommend Captain John to all. Took us out into Gulf right to the dolphins and our group all jumped in and... More
