Shell Island Dolphin Tours History


Although you may have seen dolphins in captivity in a marine park or aquarium, it is much more fascinating to see these magnificent animals in their natural habitat. Even though wild dolphin behavior cannot be predicted, and sightings on all trips are not guaranteed, tour captains have a lot of experience on the waters of St. Andrew Bay almost every day. Our captains know where dolphins can be found, and they do everything possible to ensure guests have a good time. Dolphins can be seen on most tours jumping, playing, looking for food and communicating with each other.

Private tours are ideal for groups that desire a more intimate experience or want to avoid being exposed to other groups. Another benefit of private tours is the flexibility to determine how long you will stay in a given area.

Another thing that makes jet ski tours so cool is the fact that dolphins love to explore the jet ski sway.

Although we have everything you could need onboard, you can still bring any item you wish. A towel, polarized glasses, sweater, or jacket are all good items to bring. It's cooler on the water than it is on the land due to the breeze and the open boat. You can also bring snacks and drinks.

Thats really up to you. The boat tour is often better for those traveling with young kids, or those with more limited mobility, but it really depends on you. If youre not sure if your group would do better on Waverunners or boats, give us a call, and well help you decide what would be best.

You can choose to book a private charter and have the boat your way for 2 - 6 guests or book a guided tour. On public tours, multiple guests can be seated on the same boat. All our tours are limited to six guests. You can have more people on our tours by booking multiple boats.

St. Andrew Bay's dolphins are wild animals. Therefore, it is difficult to predict when they will be most active. The season, weather, tide cycles and availability of prey all influence dolphin behavior. There is generally a good chance that dolphins will be seen when the sun is shining and the water is clear and calm. Feeding activities can usually be seen at an outgoing tide. You are best to find a dolphin tour operator such as Panama City Beach Dolphin Tours, which is available almost every day of the year.
