Discover the Beauty & Nature of Shell Island

Dolphin tours are fun for all ages. Whether it's by waverunner or on a big glass bottom boat. Dolphin tours are a special kind of marine tour that watches for wild bottle nose dolphins. These mammals are indigenous to the Emerald Coast waters. For those looking for more of a thrill and first hand experience, the waverunners tours are a great options. For young children or those looking for something more laid back, we recommend a boat. Book a dolphin tour in Panama City Beach and take home a memory you will not forget.

Dolphin Tour Reviews from

Shell Island Snorkel & Tour
"We had such a great time on this adventure! It was well worth the money and I would definitely do it again if given the oppurtunity. Our tour guide was amazing and the whole experience was just a blast!"

Awesome Experience!
"My husband and I took our children, ages 20 and 14 on the Your. We go to the beach quite frequently, and have never taken a dolphin tour. I have to tell you, we all agreed, other than the fireworks that week, the dolphin tour was the most fun we had that week. Nick, our captain, was courteous, pointing out different things as we progressed with the tour. He was very flexible, allowing my family to spend more time snorkeling, than actually going to shell island to explore. That was very appreciated. We all LOVED the 'under the sea' experience! He took his time, making several attempts to 'locate' as many dolphins as possible . My fourteen year old had never seen a dolphin out in the open, it was really exciting! We have all agreed, we will be making another reservation, possibly doing the pontoon rental, to allow more time to enjoy the water. Nick made our tour very worthwhile. He is a definite asset to the company!"
