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!

Captain Rob was just awesome! He found the dolphins quickly and gave everyone a chance to swim with them. He was very knowledgeable of the waters and where to find everything. He was also concerned for safety, when he spotted jellyfish he insisted on taking us elsewhere and spending a little extra time on our tour. My 3 yr old... More

We were chauffeured in a small craft with one other couple out to where there were Dolphins all over the place. The captain of the boat was a real sea-dog from the merchant marines, having worked on the big ships for 21 years. As if directing a massive ship he showed us the sights and we took the time to...

We rent out a pontoon boat every year and this place is the cheapest in the whole city! Great friendly staff who will help out any way to make sure your trip is the best it can be! The Only negative thing I could say, is that I would of liked to see more stops on the map! For instance... More

We were really excited about this excursion, and a chance to see the dolphins. Capt. Rob was very knowledgeable, and knew where to go to find the dolphins, unfortunately; it was not a good day for dolphins. We were able to see some from afar, but nobody was able to spot them (nor from any boat). He took us to... More

Went to check on prices and parked right in front of the building. Walked up to window and didn't see anyone in there. Waited for about 5 minutes and walked around the side of the building. Came back to front and still no help. Finally knocked on window and a lady sitting behind a computer opened the window and rudely... More

I was looking to schedule a family fun snorkel with dolphins and shell hunting trip for 6 in my family.

Thank you Eddie. Another successful trip about Capt Rob's boat. His knowledge of the area and its surrounding waters is unmatched by any guide in the area. We can't wait for you and your family to return for another trip next year. More

We had 3 kids (15, 9, and 7) and my mother. Captain Rob was fantastic. We saw dolphins right away, found so many sand dollars and star fish, and learned so much about the island. I would have been happy just riding in the boat for two hours but everyone had a fantastic time. Request Captain Rob!!

Thanks Erinapth. So glad your family had a great time on the Dolphin/Snorkel Tour. I read the word "FANTASTIC" in about every review for Capt Rob. Did you get to take some of the sand dollars home? I can only imagine the wealth of knowledge Rob passed along to your kids about the island and its history. Please choose us... More
