Aquatic Adventures has been serving the Panama City Beaches for decades and has exceptional experience in making your vacation memorable. The Panama City Beaches are known worldwide for the beautiful crystal blue waters and sparkling white sandy beaches. Aquatic Adventures in Panama City Beach is located on the west coast of the State of Florida on the Gulf of Mexico.

We have watersports for every level of thrill seeker, including banana boats pulled by jetskis. The banana boats are wonderful for hot days on the beach and a fun ride for the family. The jetski captain can give you a smooth ride if you want to just cruise around or they can speed things up for a more wild ride. It is up to you!

Dolphin tours will delight your inner explorer as you come face to face with the ocean’s friendliest dolphins. A guide will teach you to swim with the dolphins and you can even go shelling if you are wanting to get some awesome shells. Parasailing is the next level of thrills, in which the Captains and Crew will make sure that your adventure is safe and exciting.

Sail away in one of Aquatic Adventures sailboats off of Panama City Beaches that are available for rental or cruise around the water in a pontoon boat. Both are available for rent or for charter with one of our experienced captains. Wave runners are also available to rent and at reasonable prices. Aquatic Adventures offers a variety of aquatic services and rentals in the Panama City Beach, Florida areas.

From the skilled fisherman to the beginner, Aquatic Adventures has the best 18 foot fishing boats available for charter or for rent. Captains are knowledgeable and experienced in boat safety. The Gulf of Mexico and the Florida coast has some of the best fishing waters in the world. The Aquatic Adventures captain’s goal of the fishing charters is to make sure that you return with a “Big Fish” story of your own from the Gulf of Mexico!

It was amazing! Awesome! Captain Rick was wonderful. He truly wanted my daughter and her friend to have an exceptional time. That was the biggest smile ever. Thank you Captain Rick!!!! We seriously thought about doing it again the next day. It was also very affordable compared to the other activities and very enjoyable.

Captain Rob Darley was a great guide. He was full of information and saw to it that we experienced plenty of dolphins. Shelling and snorkeling off of shell island was the highlight of our vacation. We highly recommend this tour.

My family and I did the dolphin cruise to Shell Island on Saturday. It was wonderful. We saw plenty of dolphins (it's that time of year) and even jumped in with them. We went to a couple of locations on Shell Island to snorkel and learned a ton about the area. It was worth every penny and we plan on... More

The guides were informative and friendly. We did see some dolphins. But it was mostly a jetski adventure. I really liked the value of the rentals.-- 2 hours on a jetski for both for my husband and I to share for $130?!! It was a follow the leader jetski, which was great. The only thing I would say slightly negative,... More

I had an amazing experience with Captain Rob Darley. I went on the less popular 4:30 trip by myself. There were 4 other guests, Captain Rob, and myself, and we all had a wonderful time. The highlight of the trip was definitely getting to jump in with manatees. It's a little more rare to see them, and I was literally... More

This is an awesome activity! Our guide, Justin, was excellent. He strived to find a variety of sea creatures for us to see. He knew where to find the dolphins. The jet skis were fun and Justin created a tour that was suited to our group. Thanks Justin!!

I was told I couldn’t get a receipt so I made note of the chair numbers and dates and confirmed them with the girl who took my reservation and money to make sure we... More

My husband and I chose to spend a long weekend in PCB for our anniversary. We booked a dolphin and snorkeling trip on Friday for Sunday. We were informed Sunday morning that we would have the boat to ourselves. Captain Rob was fabulous. He took us out to find dolphins and had us in line each time to get to... More
