Wonderful experience!!

We had such an amazing time! My husband and I were in great company with the captain and the ride was so much fun. Shell island does not disappoint either! The captain provided everything we needed. We will definitely be doing this again in the future!!

Great family experience!

We scheduled a private charter with Seaydogs during our recent vacation to Panama City. This was our first time hiring a private charter and for our family of 6 was well worth the money. Kerry, the captain, was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable of the area and it’s history. Each of us wanted something different from dolphin sight seeing, snorkeling, visiting shell island and swimming with dolphins. He accommodated us all and we were very pleased with the experience with it being the highlight of our trip and plan to make this a tradition going forward.

We had a wonderful trip. Hiring Kerry as our private captain was definitely the way to go! Saw several dolphins and had fun snorkeling and just being in the water. Also really enjoyed just riding on the very nice boat and sightseeing from the waters perspective . The next day my daughter asked if we could go back and do that again!
