    We saw one set of dolphins this whole tour, intact the guide didn’t even try to look for them. We went to shell island for 30 minutes then came back. The wave runners were very low power and had no ge...  more »

    While in Panama City Beach my daughter and myself went on a tour on Capt. Robert Darley's boat. The tour took us around the Bay and out to the shore line to look for Dolphins then to Shell Island. We ...  more »

    We love water sports and this dolphin tour to shell island was quite amazing. Our guide was the best I've experienced over the years - really nice guy. We also got to see and play with dolphins which was amazing. Our guide got us really close to a group of 4-6 dolphins and a baby dolphin too. Highly recommend this place and our tour guide from this morning.

    We have enjoyed the Wyndham Resorts for 4 years and are so fortunate to be treated like rolality by Mary Ann and Adam with Aquatic Adventures Chair Rental Service!! These two call us by name and remember us from year to year! It is a reassuring to know that they will be on the beach to provide smiles and service. Signed Bell/Bridges Group

    None of the workers helped my family of 11 on or off the boat. I as a 120lb woman had to rehook our boat all on my own. The attendant shut the doors to the little rental shack and decided to take a nap. If I could put less than one star I would. Never using aquatic adventures AGAIN!!!

    Please read before you parasail or banana boat with them. Both rides you could do right from the beach, but it was by no means "convenient." The staff are worried more about quantity than quality. They said we'd have about 1 hour to wait for parasailing when we signed up, and they came running 15 minutes later saying it's our turn while a family member went back up to the condo to get something. We asked if we could wait for him but they immediately responded "no, we can't wait for anyone." Someone else had to take his place. I then starting walking to my chairs to grab the tickets, and they told me I had to hurry because they run a tight schedule. A banana boat pulls you out to the parasail boat, but don't expect any help getting on or off. Needless to say, the staff is very unfriendly. As for the actual ride, it's not worth the money. We were up in the air for a shorter time than any other time I've parasailed, for the same price. As for the "dip", my feet barely entered the water for a second and they picked us back up. The pictures and video they take aren't that great either. The banana boat ride is more of the same. Short, boring, and you have to deal with the staff. Overall, they don't care about giving you a good experience, they only care about getting as many rides as they can in a day. They're much more worried about quantity than quality. Please spend your money elsewhere.

    I recently booked a swim with dolphins/snorkeling tour while on vacation. I booked the day of,with no problems. It was my family's first time doing this and Captain Rob Darley made it a wonderful experience! Plus he was very knowledgeable on the area. We snorkeled to find sea creatures and some souvenirs. Plus the kids got to drive the boat!! It was very personalized (6 people). We loved swimming with the dolphins too! This is definitely something I would recommend doing!

Where to stay in Panama City Beach

As a popular vacation destination, Panama City Beach has an abundance of accommodations. A beachfront hotel room or condo is the perfect base for a tranquil luxury vacation. Rooms with a balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico are in high demand. However, resorts and properties close to the shore are often expensive, and those on a budget should consider a motel farther from the beach.
