Overview
Set sail off the coast of Panama City Beach on this guided catamaran cruise that heads out to Shell Island, a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico. Once at the island, enjoy a variety of activities such as swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. In addition, take advantage of a water playground with a giant water trampoline, climbing wall, and slide. All equipment is included for a seamless experience.
What to Expect
Your tour begins at Pirates Cove Marina in Panama City Beach, where you board a Privateer sailing catamaran for the short ride to Shell Island. There, receive safety instructions before enjoying a variety of water-related activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, and stand-up paddle boarding. All equipment is included.

There’s plenty to do at the inflatable water park with trampolines, climbing wall, 12-foot (3.6-meter) water slide, and seesaw ball.

Or lounge on catamaran sunning nets for relaxation. Life jackets are provided, and deck hands are on board to help. One beverage is included, and there’s a full-service bar with light snacks and drinks for purchase. Following the activities, spend time spotting dolphins from the catamaran before heading back to the marina at the end of the tour.

The tour concludes at Pirates Cove Marina.
