Aquatic Adventures has been serving the Panama City Beaches for decades and has exceptional experience in making your vacation memorable. The Panama City Beaches are known worldwide for the beautiful crystal blue waters and sparkling white sandy beaches. Aquatic Adventures in Panama City Beach is located on the west coast of the State of Florida on the Gulf of Mexico.

We have watersports for every level of thrill seeker, including banana boats pulled by jetskis. The banana boats are wonderful for hot days on the beach and a fun ride for the family. The jetski captain can give you a smooth ride if you want to just cruise around or they can speed things up for a more wild ride. It is up to you!

Dolphin tours will delight your inner explorer as you come face to face with the ocean’s friendliest dolphins. A guide will teach you to swim with the dolphins and you can even go shelling if you are wanting to get some awesome shells. Parasailing is the next level of thrills, in which the Captains and Crew will make sure that your adventure is safe and exciting.

Sail away in one of Aquatic Adventures sailboats off of Panama City Beaches that are available for rental or cruise around the water in a pontoon boat. Both are available for rent or for charter with one of our experienced captains. Wave runners are also available to rent and at reasonable prices. Aquatic Adventures offers a variety of aquatic services and rentals in the Panama City Beach, Florida areas.

From the skilled fisherman to the beginner, Aquatic Adventures has the best 18 foot fishing boats available for charter or for rent. Captains are knowledgeable and experienced in boat safety. The Gulf of Mexico and the Florida coast has some of the best fishing waters in the world. The Aquatic Adventures captain’s goal of the fishing charters is to make sure that you return with a “Big Fish” story of your own from the Gulf of Mexico!

Unfortunately we had a very cold day on the boat. The staff starting from the person that booked our reservation to the guys at the boat were amazing! The boat was in great shape and ran like it was new. Thank you from Canada!

These people are liars and they took money from our kids to rent jet skis. When the kids went to pick them up they informed them that they were not old enough to rent. The kids had given them cash and they told them that they would mail a check. That was a lie, we have called 7 times. When... More

The last week in September we went on a 2 hour excursion with Captain Rob. It was a fantastic experience and the only thing that we regret is that we didn't have more time. Having grown up in PCB, Captain Rob was very knowledgeable about the area and had many stories. Our favorite experience was swimming with the dolphins! We... More

It was amazing! Awesome! Captain Rick was wonderful. He truly wanted my daughter and her friend to have an exceptional time. That was the biggest smile ever. Thank you Captain Rick!!!! We seriously thought about doing it again the next day. It was also very affordable compared to the other activities and very enjoyable.

Captain Rob Darley was a great guide. He was full of information and saw to it that we experienced plenty of dolphins. Shelling and snorkeling off of shell island was the highlight of our vacation. We highly recommend this tour.

My family and I did the dolphin cruise to Shell Island on Saturday. It was wonderful. We saw plenty of dolphins (it's that time of year) and even jumped in with them. We went to a couple of locations on Shell Island to snorkel and learned a ton about the area. It was worth every penny and we plan on... More
