Leave the glorious beaches of the Emerald Coast behind and head out to Shell Island on a dolphin and whale watching tour from Panama City Beach. You can combine a scenic cruise with swimming, snorkeling in the shallows, paddleboarding, kayaking, and other fun water activities. If you choose to spend an entire day relaxing on the sea, chasing dolphins, fishing, and looking for secluded stretches of shoreline, consider renting a pontoon boat. Shorter, 90-minute trips are also available for tourists with limited time.

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.
