Jet ski dolphin tour with Elijah was a blast! Did the earliest time, so it wasn’t too hot and there wasn’t too much boat traffic. This was our (late teen and 20s; each drove own) 2nd time on a jet ski, and we soon felt super comfortable zooming around given the pretty calm water in the lagoon and brief instructions. Saw dolphins twice almost immediately, but it should be noted your phone will be likely safely tucked in a waterproof compartment of your jet ski, so getting to it in time to snap a photo may not happen. Nevertheless, had so much fun touring the lagoon and hearing about local wildlife. We also did pull ashore at Shell Island and were offered the chance to walk around and swim there. :) Elijah kindly customized things based on my group’s interest, so we probably spent ~70% jet skiing (follow the leader, freestyle, learning tricks…) and the other 30% stopping to chat or explore. Highly recommend and looking forward to a repeat during our next PCB visit!

Side note: Thunderstorms caused us to reschedule by a day, so I’d suggest planning this, like any weather-dependent activity, early in your visit. FunPCB contacted us to let us know the original time was looking unsafe and easily helped us to reschedule. As you can see by other reviews, you need to assume it’s ON unless specifically told otherwise! Also, there’s a convenient automatic texting system that sends reminders regarding your time, Florida boating mini-course, and bringing your drivers license if you plan to drive a jet ski. Lastly, bring securely fitting sunglasses if you’re worried about surf getting in your eyes.

The Dolphin Boat Tour with Captain Robert was the best experience of our trip, he was an amazing captain and made sure we got to see many dolphins even when my mom forgot to press record he was set on getting her the full experience. it was starting to rain as we were gonna get on and he told us to go have some lunch enjoy our time and come back when the rain dies down and recommend us a place to eat. He was such a gentleman and we had a fun ride on the boat as well!! definitely worth it!

We picked FunPCB jet ski tours because it included a guide for the entire tour. We had a mixture of skill levels in our group but we had two tour guides, Tyler and Chase. They were great and I liked that they divided themselves between the skill leveled riders, and they maintained communications between each other. We didn’t see dolphins because of the weather prior to riding but we enjoyed our trip to shell island. We enjoyed the entire experience even though the weather turned again while we were riding. Tyler and Chase made sure we got back safely. We have been on other jet skis with other companies before. Loved having the two experiences guides that stayed with us the whole trip.

This was a first visit to pcb for my family and I. My daughter wanted to try parasailing so we booked a double for her and I. We were sold the "upgraded" package to include photos and were told we could not take any pictures. We were also told that we would be texted a link which never came.

I called and it has now been a month since we were there. Now I am told that there was never a photographer on the boat we went on AND we paid for the package that included the photos. Completely unorganized, no one knows anything. The 2 people running the boat were yelling at the people to get on and off in such a quick fashion that you had no time to even ask questions.

We will NOT be using this company to book excursions on our tip again, we got ripped off

We have owned a unit at Emerald Beach Resort for 14 years. This trip we decided to allow our kids (14/11/ & 8) to ride the banana boat. We could not have been more disappointed. I was told earlier in the week the ride was two miles and would last about ten mins. Because I was given a time I decided to set a timer while I waited for my husband and kids to ride. We paid $172 for a 5 min 30 second ride. I was shocked they had returned so quickly! I think the company should provide a much better experience with the amount of money they are charging. We learned a hard lesson and will not be recommending to any of our guests in the future.

Terry, Thank you for your feedback. We are truly sorry you feel the banana boat was not worth it. It is a 2 mile ride which is $40 per person plus tax. A two mile ride takes about 5-7 minutes to complete. The smoother the water, the faster the shuttle captain can pull. Our skis are equipped with GPS to ensure that all banana boaters are given a two mile ride. We hope you had an enjoyable vacation!

Our family booked the dolphin tour on the pontoon boat. We had an amazing time and saw lots of dolphins. Bruce was our captain and he was so awesome! He took us out to see dolphins and then took us to shell island. He is a very skilled captain so we felt safe the whole time and he gave us so much history about Panama City Beach and the different landmarks. We would definitely book again and ask for Bruce!

We spent a week at Ocean villa condo. Our room included beach chair rental outside the condo which happened to be ran by funpcb. The first day we were assigned chairs in the back row right next to their hut where the employees sit and sell other activities . They stated “just come see us tomorrow and we’ll get you moved up to the front row.” While laying in the chairs with my 3 young boys we heard plenty of foul language from the employees. They were so rude! The next morning my husband went down there first thing to be moved and she stated again “come back down later and we’ll get you taken care of, and I work for tips.” My husband of course is not going to tip these rude ladies. When we came back down later that morning, they said there were no front row chairs available even though most of them sat empty all day. We said we wanted to be moved away from the Tiki hut because of all the foul language so they did move us to a different back row seat further away from them. They also said that they usually reserved the front row seating for cash paying customers, not ones where it’s included in their condo rental. My husband tried several times during the week to be moved up only to be met with there are no chairs available when clearly most of the week at least 15 chairs remained empty in the front row. We did call their manager on the third or fourth day who also stated she would speak with the girls and look at their seating chart and try to get us moved up. Again we were not moved up. Long story short, I would recommend getting a condo that does not include the chair rental. You would be more likely to have a front row seat if you pay cash when you got here.

Stef_Ann201, Thank you for your feedback. We are truly sorry you felt the beach attendants were rude. We strive to create a family friendly atmosphere and foul language from our crew is not in line with our values. The foul language from the beach attendants was addressed that day, and they know that they are not to speak that way. Even though 15 of the sets looked empty they actually were reserved. Again we are truly sorry for the foul language. We hope you had an enjoyable vacation.

We stayed at Tropics Winds and our condo included a two beach chair and umbrella rental. I checked in on the first day and was assigned a number on a certain set of chairs; however, the next day someone was sitting in the chairs. They said they had been assigned the same ones. We asked the two boys in the hut and they said they had double booked and offered to kick the people out for us but we chose to just move to another set of chairs. Throughout the week, there were several different families sitting in our beach chairs which was frustrating considering we were paying for them and the boys couldn’t seem to get the reservations straight. Additionally, there were a few times when the boys weren’t in the hut or just not paying attention and the umbrellas would be falling over or coming out of the holders. It’s not a big deal that I had to keep fixing it but it’s a bit annoying considering the boys were just sitting there watching and getting paid to be a beach attendant. That aside, the two boys…whose names I can’t remember or I would shout them out…were very friendly and constantly reminded us to tell them if we had any problems or concerns or needed help with anything. Also, really wanted to commend the two boys for working 8-5 physically intensive shifts in the sun for the entire week I stayed in my condo. Overall, I was happy…I just wished they would not get the reservations mixed up.

This experience was amazing! Paisley was very helpful on the phone and answered all of my questions in advance. Captain Bruce was friendly and very professional. I was very nervous when we started and the boat was hitting the water sometimes hard, in my opinion which I was very anxious because I’m a new swimmer. Captain Bruce was sensitive to this and slowed down until I felt comfortable. It was very accommodating and made everyone feel at ease. We had the best time! We saw dolphins, sea turtles, went swimming at Shell Island and he pointed out other interesting facts along the tour. This was one of the best experiences of our vacation and was well worth every penny!

Paid 350 dollars for 2 lounge chairs, umbrella, and an extra fold out chair for 6 days. First day was fine. Every day there after had to hunt him down to get the extra chair. Next day someone else was laying in our chair. Asked to be moved and again for extra chair. Next day went to the chairs and again no extra chairs. Today he put out only specific chairs rented. When I asked him around 9am he said he had us at 5. Noon comes and there are people again sitting in our chairs. Absolutely the worst beach service I have ever had. When the attendant is around he never checks on people or even ensures the right people, who paid good money, are even taken care of. Didn't even use them today nor plan to tomorrow and management email said they "talked to him and you sat in the chairs everyday." Guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree as I already stated we DID NOT use them today and opted to use the stuff in condo.
