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!

Monday afternoon I rented two chair/umbrella sets next to each other. One from Tuesday – Saturday and the one to the right from Thursday – Saturday. 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

What an awesome time. While we didn't have teenagers, that was the closest selection for my family.(Wife, daughters and son in law) We were looking for something to do to round out our week at PCB and this was perfect!

Thanks Jonathan. Glad you guys had a good time on the Dolphin Tour with Capt Rob. Seeing the dolphins immediately must have been a great experience for you guys. I guess you guys were into the dolphins and decided to spend the majority of the your trip around them. They truly are one of the oceans most amazing animals. More

We arrived in Panama City Beach Monday (8/22) and scheduled a sunset dolphin tour for Thursday (8/25). When Thursday arrived we called around 3:30pm to see how long we should expect to be gone, we were told then that we probably wouldn't be going due to lack of sales. An hour later we received a call back confirming there would... More

Justin and Ryan were fun guides on our dolphin and Shell Island tour!

Jessica, thanks for allowing us to take you on the jet skis for the first time. sorry that the dolphins were no where to be found. That does not happen very often. I like that your 75 yr old mother rode on one of the skis. I hope she had an amazing time as well? More

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
