Overview

This Panama City Beach catamaran adventure makes exploring the historic Grand Lagoon a breeze. Sail through the lagoon and spend time swimming and snorkeling on the Florida Panhandle. Visit a dolphin “playground” and snorkel in shallow waters full of colorful marine life. Relax on the catamaran’s sundeck while getting an introduction to the waters of this coastal gem. Multiple departure times fit your schedule.

What to Expect

Begin your tour at Bay Point Sheraton, with a towel and sunscreen in hand. Check in with the bellman in the lobby, and hop on a golf cart or walk to the end of the dock at Pelican’s. Climb aboard the catamaran and start your water adventure in St. Andrews Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

Make your first stop at a wild dolphin “playground” and watch dolphins feed, dive, and swim alongside the boat.

Next, stop for a snorkeling session off Shell Island. Your guide offers snorkeling instructions and equipment. Jump into the water to see dozens of species of colorful fish and other sea life.

Spend some time relaxing on the boat’s sundeck and lounge area, and choose to purchase beverages, including beer and wine, if you like. Bring your own snacks or lunch if you wish.

Your tour ends at the dock.

Waste. Of my time and money. Went to snorkel no one saw a thing.

Don’t do anything with this company. Check about the sunset cruise too. Wouldn’t do that one either.

Nice catamaran ride

Staff was good and we saw many dolphins. When we anchored to snorkel the only thing we saw were sand and dangerous sea urchins. Nothing else to see no idea why they would take you to an area where there is absolutely nothing to see....More
