Owner description: An exciting way to experience the beauty of Panama City Beach. This spacious yet comfortable twin turbo powered 73' passenger sightseeing boat offers a smooth yet thrilling ride unlike any other! Journey past Shell Island and cruise along the coast line to see all the sights and view dolphin surfing in the magnificent wake of the Sea Screamer. This is a very affordable two hour attraction and the fun and professional crew will ensure a ride to remember. We have been Cruizin'the World's Most Beautiful Beaches for the past 23 years, and enjoy having all of the fun return passengers back on board each time. Ask about our new and popular snorkel and swim trips too! The two and half hour Snorkel & Swim Trips depart daily at 10am & 2pm in the summertime. The coastline dolphin cruise departs 9am, 12, 3pm, and 6pm in summertime season. Reservations Required, so please call ahead. Our Crew will Exceed YOUR Expectations!

“I Keep Going Back”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We have taken the trip on the Sea Screamer now three times over the last few years, the latest being today and I look forward to the next trip on it. Every trip is always different and we always have a blast. We always see dolphins and they run with the boat sometimes. Today we caught jellyfish that you could hold and crabs too. The captain is an awesome guy. Always entertaining. The trip will be at least 2 hours if not longer. And for Panama City area, 20 bucks per adult is not a bad price. I highly recommend it if you like going fast in a boat and feeling the wind in your hair. Oh and you get to drive the boat if you want. Including the kids. Plus there are other surprises in store for you that I won't spoil for you. Happy boating!

“Vacation in PCB? You have to do this!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Ok... we all know there are a milion things to do in Panama City Beach....the problem is deciding which ones and how much. If you are looking for a fun, educational, sight-seeing, and exciting experience at a fair price, --this is the place. For about $22.00 per person, you can go on a 2 hour( our trip was 2.5 hours) boat ride, see dolphins, jellyfish, crabs, and the PCB area from the water. If you take the sunset cruise( we did), you get to see a beautfull sunset from the ocean-- it was awesome. The captian and first mate were very nice, polite and professional. They let the children steer the 70 foot long boat. The smaller kids on the boat also got to play with water guns, which they loved We stopped and the first mate pulled up traps out of the water so the kids could see and hold crabs. We even "battled" a pirate boat that "shot" at us.( just go and see what I mean). Snacks are for sale on the boat- and very cheap- so that was nice.Overall, My family loved this and yours will too.--one word of advice- bring a few extra bucks and tip the first mate- he does a great job and works just for tips. P.S.-- if you really want to get wet, they offer snorkerl trips as well.

“Lots of fun”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I highly recommend doing this on your trip to PCB. The crew on the Sea Screamer is awesome. The captain lets the kids drive the boat and they shoot a cannon from the boat, and the best part is the dolphins. They were following the boat and jumping out of the water. This was an awesome boat ride and we will definitely be doing it on our next visit to PCB.

“very glad chose this one”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Fantastic friendly service. Corey was fantastic captin. Boat was very comfotable and got to walk all around on it. I felt bad for the other smaller tour boats out there. Seeing their boats looked like welfare cases compared to this wonderful large new boat. This boat had more people but far more space and freedom to move around. Beer only $2 and cokes $1 Call other tours and see for yourself how crappy some of the other tour services are. I called one and lady on a cell phone answered call and was talking to me and four others at same time. Another placed called and voice mail came on saying don't bother leaving a messsage and we don't return calls. This place had a nice lady super freindly took our reservation very professional and top notch service. Will visit again.

“Do not miss if in Panama City Beach area!”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Okay, we have been coming to PCB for many years and have seen the Sea Screamer for many of those recent years. First time to take a ride this year in October. Great time! Gerret and Ben were great to work with all of the kids and adults to make the trip special. Sure this is not easy when they are doing this trip many times--be we all felt like we were their first and only group. Other staff we came across were all very nice and welcoming. We have taken our own boats around the area but this did include some educational activities for the kids but adults learned a lot also. Nice music choices play whilewe were out. Have seen them shoot the little cannon many times--but when you are on the boat and hear the echo back out to the boat, that is really interesting. We did get some dolphin sightings and fun to watch them play in the wake. Fun to get to see other ocean wildlife like crabs and and jellyfish. Of course, a lot of great photos to take along the way and back. We took the sunset cruise and will take again some day. Nice snacks and drinks for a low cost. If you have not ever taken the time to take this 2+ hour cruise, do so soon. You will not be sorry! Keep up the great work Sea Screamer staff/owners. We hope to visit again soon!
