Best excursion in the Gulf.

Was worth every penny. If you are looking for a relaxing ride, this was it. Captain Zach was very knowledgeable about the area. He made us laugh and feel very welcome on the boat, he appreciated everyone. Almost feels like he would do it for free, just because he loves his job which was everything you want in a tour guide. I would give 10 stars if I could.

Tour was awesome, CPT Zack was great and had a lot of knowledge of the area. Shell Island was beautiful and he knew where the dolphins were. There was a lot to pack in this tour with only two hours I wish we would of had more time but it was an awesome tour. I’m looking forward to doing it again on our next visit.

Captain Zach was super nice and knowledgeable about the area. This tour is a wonderful way to see many areas that can only be accessed by boat. My family loved the smaller size of the tour and the boat. We loved seeing the dolphins, the sunset and Shell Island. Highly recommend this tour if you want an experience tailored to your interests.

We were in Panama city Beach for 24hrs to celebrate my husband's birthday. I booked this adventure and so glad I did. We we got on the 9:30am departure. It was only us, so it felt like a private tour. Captain Zach was very informative and a pleasure to chat with in general. We will be back with our family. Don't look at other deals similar to this. Book this one, you won't regret it. We went to the secret spot, no dolphins sightseeing but the entire trip was amazing. Nice music selection too. Cheers Captain Zach, keep up the amazing sails.

Captain Zach was great!!!! Funny, personable, knowledgeable, conscientious and mindful of passengers. Saw two different groups of dolphins (shy day for them) and other amazing scenery. Clean, safe and comfortable boat. Maximum of 6 passengers per cruise…..we were only 3 so felt like we were on a private charter. We got the chance to ask lots of questions! Definitely recommend!!! You won’t be disappointed!!!! Thanks Captain Zach for a wonderful afternoon!!!

A beautiful day capped by a wonderful boat ride! A sunset cruise with dolphin and osprey sightings ❤ Shell Island was beautiful too! Zach is a great guy, friendly and soft-spoken. We enjoyed Zach's informative tour of the bay and the gulf. We would definitely recommend this tour.

We went on this trip to kick off the first day of our vacation here. This cruise was incredible. I 100% would recommend this and do it all over again. We had a baby with us and it worked out well. She cried a little in the beginning but eventually fell asleep. Be prepared for a little wind. Wear shoes you can wear for beach combing. Capt Zack is very nice and went out of his way to buy our infant a life jacket. This is very enjoyable. The dolphins where friendly and got very close to the boat. We had a great family experience. Don’t miss out on this tour.

My husband & I have never been to Florida for vacation, been to shell island, or did any dolphin sightseeing. This was an amazing experience, it was only my husband & I with Captain Zach but it was so relaxing & neat. I definitely recommend friends & family to have Captain Zach be your guide & have a wonderful time on the water & shell island
