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

We had a great time! We were lucky enough to go on a calm day and were able to go around to the gulf side of shell island. We saw several fish and crabs in the jetties and got some great video. I highly recommend the rum pinch for all the adults
