Overview

Cruise to Shell Island and search for wild dolphins on a catamaran sailing trip from Panama City Beach. The catamaran’s broad, stable deck makes it a comfortable alternative to smaller boats prone to rocking in the waves, and since it’s stocked with paddle boards, snorkeling gear, and a waterslide, it’s the perfect base for playing in the clear water off Shell Island.
  • Choose between a range of activities at Shell Island
  • Enjoy room to relax on the spacious catamaran
  • Look for wild dolphins in their natural habitat
  • Choose between a range of convenient departure times

Morning trip might be better
Jamie_F
, Oct 2021
Didn’t find hardly any shells. Water was too cloudy to snorkel and see anything. Felt like there was a lot of time wasted just driving. Maybe a morning trip would be better.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate both the good and the bad so that we may use it to better our experience for future guests. Jamie, we are sorry to hear that you had a difficult time trying to find shells. Sometimes the tides and water conditions can be a contributing factor. Also, we apologize for any confusion you may have had as to what the trip entails. Our cruise advertises 2 hour of sailing and sightseeing and about 1 hour at Shell Island snorkeling and exploring. Hope you can give us another try in the future!
