Had a great time, we saw so many dolphins, Captain Lorraine knew exactly where to go to find them. The kids loved the dolphins and snorkeling for sea shells! Thank you Captain Lorraine! The Geren family from Tennessee

Perfect! Totally worth the money for a private charter. We saw lots of wildlife, including dolphins. Never once felt rushed and had a thoroughly enjoyable morning. I cannot wait to go back again.

My sister and I paid about $76 each. It says $68 each but when you reserve online, there's a convenience fee and, of course, tax.

Google Dolphin and Snorkel Tours LLC and it should be the first one. Look for Captain Loraine's name!

What is the best tour company to go with for a trip that includes both snorkeling and getting in the water with the dolphins? We are a family of four. The kids are ages 14 and 16, but have never been snorkeling before.

I have not been on a tour myself but Water Planet gets four and a half stars and is rated #4 of things to do in Panama City Beach. They are supposed to be very family friendly.

First and foremost thank you to this group for all the suggestions and help whenever I needed it. Here are my highlights for our stay at the "Sunset House" on Mark St. In Crystal Beach.

I wont even go into the beach umbrella vendor debate but as you read I had an unfavorable run in with Crystal Dunes...More
