All Inclusive Private Panama City Beach Dolphin, Snorkeling, Wildlife, and Shell Island Tours!
A personalized experience is our focus at Dolphin and Snorkel Tours, but we take that to the next level with our private charters. Create your own unique dolphin tour experience in Panama City Beach.
When you book a private tour, we reserve the boat for your party exclusively. You can customize the tour to your liking, or let us do it for you. We recommend about an hour per activity. Typically, from April through October we recommend at least a 3 hour tour. This gives you time to encounter dolphins and a variety of wildlife, stop at a snorkeling site, and also stop at Shell Island to snorkel, walk, or explore. Longer tours are also available for anyone that wants to go further off the beaten path and stop at multiple snorkeling sites. For people that love to snorkel, the longer the better! We will not run out of things to see. This is guaranteed! Longer tours also give us time to take you to some beautiful secluded areas.
From November through March we typically recommend a 2 hour private tour. On our 2 hour private tour, we will typically encounter dolphins and a variety of wildlife. We often also stop on Shell Island. Shell Island is loaded with shells this time of year! You are welcome to take any sea shells as long as there are live animals living in them. November through March is a bit cold for snorkeling, so these are typically sightseeing tours. In Panama City Beach, dolphins are very active and undisturbed during the cooler months. It is absolutely magical watching them during this time of year!
When coming on a tour with us from November through March please remember to bring a jacket to wear! Our boats are open boats. Even when it feels comfortable on the beach in the winter, it usually will get chilly on the boat with the windchill.
With our convenient location in Pirates Cove Marina, one of the closest marinas to Shell Island, we don’t waste time having to travel across the bay and can virtually guarantee dolphin sightings in no time.
Whether you want a two-hour cruise or prefer to spend a whole day out on the water, a Private Panama City Beach Dolphin and Snorkeling Tour is the perfect adventure for anyone. To help ensure a memorable and close-up experience, we do limit our boats to only six passengers maximum. We offer multiple boats for larger parties.
