Overview
Spend some time on the water during this Shell Island tour with dolphin spotting and snorkeling. Cruise across the waters of St Andrew Bay to Shell Island, where you can search the shallows for marine life like sea horses. It’s a great way to take a break from the beach and enjoy a bit of Florida’s natural environment.
What to Expect
After checking in at Lighthouse Marina in Panama City Beach, your tour begins as you board your boat and take off across the waters of the Grand Lagoon out to St Andrews Bay.

Your captain points out sights and areas of interest on your way to Shell Island, where you'll hop in the water with provided snorkeling gear to explore the abundant sea life found in the emerald-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Among the grassy shallows, you may see creatures such as sea horses and starfish.

Then hop back on the boat for the next activity—dolphin-spotting. Watch these marine mammals in their native environment, where they often swim and jump near the boat. Your tour ends with return to the marina.
