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

Heef, Grace and Audra were super friendly and fun. We saw a few dolphins in the bay. Snorkeling wasn't the greatest due to few fish and there were no shells on Shell Island, but the boat and crew were great.
