Private Captained Boat Tours and Near Shore Adventures
along the Emerald Green Waters and Sugar White Sands

of Panama City Beach, Shell Island, and St Andrews Bay

Create an exclusive agenda with your Master Captain at the helm to guide you

We typically start the day by hunting for the dolphin. We visit Shell Island, cruise the St. Andrews Bay and Gulf of Mexico.  View the marine life from close up. Experience sightseeing the Mana Ray, Sting Ray, Sea Turtles, Shark, and of course the ever-present Southern Bottlenose Dolphin!

Stay close to the shore in St. Andrews Bay

Visit the nature preserve Shell Island, only a short distance from the shore. We bring you ashore from the St. Andrews Bay side of the island so there is smooth anchoring against the shallow waters.

It’s easy for your kids and older folks that would like to come ashore and see some of the marine life that abounds. You can take a stroll across the island to the Gulf of Mexico only a couple of hundred yards away.

It is very isolated and you get the experience of being on your own deserted island!
