Awesome time

about 1 year ago
Went on the four hour dolphin swim and also shell island. Glenn was awesome, we saw plenty of dolphins and jumped out to swim with them on many occasions. An experience will never forget both swimming with dolphins and some nice bonnet shells and a sand dollar as well as other shells. Well worth the money, you need to do this

Swim with dolphins

This is well worth the admission ticket. Our captain was Coach and he was very knowledgeable. We saw multiple dolphins and got on and off the boat countless times to swim with them. She’ll island snorkeling was so cool and Coach knew a lot about the marine life

By far the best experience! Coach was our captain and he did and amazing job! During our search for dolphins he stopped and taught us about the cannonball jellyfish. He brought on on board and let everyone hold it! The conditions weren’t perfect, the water was murky from rain and we didn’t have any sunshine but we still got to swim with several pods of dolphins! At the end we stopped by shell island and it didn’t disappoint! We left with numerous shells and several sand dollars!

Incredible Experience

about 1 year ago
This experience was more than what we could have asked for . We had Captain/ Coach as our tour guide and not was he very knowledgeable but he made sure we got in with the dolphins at every chance. Not only did we get to enjoy swimming around the dolphins in the ocean but we also had a very curious and friendly dolphin come up to us and literally play around all of us. Most amazing dolphin experience we will ever encounter , especially in the middle of the ocean! We also got to stop and swim/search for shells in the sea. 10/10 recommend this experience!

Excellent Trip!!!

Our experience was absolutely the most fun of our trip to Florida. Between the chase to find the dolphins and watching my daughter jump into the water, was pure joy. She had a blast! Being on the water was so nice that even if we never saw a single creature, it would have been worth it. We are already planning our next trip to include this experience again.

4 hour dolphin encounter

about 6 months ago
Captain (“Coach”) Glenn was a very capable boat captain and dolphin spotter. He was very adept at maneuvering the boat to place us in just the right position to intersect the dolphin’s path so that we had multiple successful snorkeling encounters. He also took care to keep us safe at all times. Captain Glen was also a knowledgeable biologist and kept us entertained with interesting facts about dolphins, as well as some of the other local wildlife. Four hours is a lot of bang for your buck. I can highly recommend it.

We didn’t get to see many dolphins but we really enjoyed the trip. Captain Jessie was great. Our toddler really had a great time. She was standing up looking out and a dolphin came right up to the boat and looked right at her. She loved it. We will use tripshock again.

AMAZING!! Swimming with dolphins in their natural habitat has always been on my bucket list and this was PERFECT!! Our captain Glen was the best! He took us right to them and put our group in the water right among them and we had the best time! DO NOT COME TO PANAMA CITY BEACH WITHOUT BOOMING THIS TRIP! Thank you Captain Glen!!!!

Awesome Experience!

Our guide Gary really gave us a great experience. We has 3 others on our boat, so it was not crowded. We had about 45 minutes of true dolphin encounters. It was a fantastic day! After swimming in the waters with the dolphins, we went to a beautiful secluded beach and found so many shells. We will definitely do this again!

Dolphin swim

Captain Dennis was great. The dolphins put on a show for us! Shell island had a lot of dead fish and the smell was bad, of course no one could control that.

Weather can make or break this experience

about 10 months ago
The interaction with the dolphins is AMAZING. The boat is in good shape and captain was nice & professional. However… they bumped us from our original (warm & sunny) date to a few days later… mid 60s, chilly, cloudy, rainy, windy. The parts in the water were amazing but unfortunately while on the boat we were miserable & shivering. I had reached out earlier in the week to express concern about the weather, and I wish I had been advised to arrive more than 20min early for wetsuits. I also think this info should be included in the written pre-arrival instructions. All parties opted to return an hour early, we were so cold. We saw dozens of dolphins and came incredibly close; so it was still worth it. I’d love to try this excursion again in different weather conditions.

Best day adventure ever!!

Captain Dennis was awesome! He worked hard to get us those opportunities to swim with the dolphins. There were several times we could have literally reached out and touched them. Would highly recommend this adventure to everyone. By the way, we are in our 50's and 60's.

Definitely worth the money - our tour guide/captain was Coach, and he was super professional and friendly. He also made the experience fun and educational! We seen tons of dolphins and I had many close encounters with them. Being in the water and swimming next to wild dolphins was an experience like none other. Amazing! Something I'll never forget. I definitely recommend!

The Highlight of Our Vacation!

about 5 months ago
Glenn was an incredible captain. We saw dolphins almost the entire trip while we were looking. We swam with pods of several dolphin on 10-15 different occasions. It was an incredible experience and extremely relaxing as well. We got to go snorkeling at an old shipwreck as well as find seashells and crabs at shell island. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Woohoo! If you are on the fence, just sign up and do it. You won’t regret it!
