Captain and crew went above and beyond to give us a good time . Saw pods of dolphin coming and going. Let the kids drive the boat and see a blue crab they caught. Excellent customer service and good showing of God’s creation !

shell Island and dauphin cruise

about 4 months ago
this is an excellent way to see shell island. The boat is clean and well maintained as are all the Anderson boats. My wife has some back problems and was able to get around on the boat. at shell island the dock was at a narrow part of the island with a boardwalk to the beech. after an hour of beautiful water and beech we went into the gulf to see the dauphins and there was plenty to see we was not disappointed. The crew and captain were friendly and experienced.

Well worth the money. Enjoyed shell island and even the corny jokes the deck hand made. Would recommend it to everyone that enjoys a slow ride to an island.

Highlight of our trip

about 4 months ago
My family and I went on vacation to Panama we have 3 daughters a six-year-old a four-year-old and a 18 month old. We wanted to do something different so we decided to book with captain Anderson because of the great reviews and also the price is hard to Beat. From the beginning when you're boarding the boat they welcome you. Also you get to take a family picture at the entrance you get to see dolphins.It was so fun feeding the seagulls as well. You get to enjoy the great view as you go to seashell island. You Must see this island it was so beautiful water was so warm and clear it was not crowded at all prefect and private don't forget to bring goggles so the little ones can enjoy snorkeling. The captain and his staff were very friendly and helpful there's also a snack bar at the lower level of the boat with AC there's also some restrooms to accommodate for the little ones. On our way back the little ones got to drive the boat. And we enjoyed seeing more dolphins and other little islands around Panama City.3 hours was perfect for me and my little ones since they can't go too long without having a full meal. It was a wonderful trip very memorable.

Amazing trip and awesome price. We saw tens of dolphins jumping out of the water and chasing each one. The captain let our son "drive" the boat, the crew was very knowledgeable and helpful. Awesome pictures. Love it!

Saw dolphins and collected shells!

Great experience, saw dolphins swimming around our boat and spent an hour on island collecting shells. Only difficulty was the captain could not be heard on speakers, so we heard none of the navigation guide or info that he was trying to give as we sailed.

Saw multiple dolphins, some jellyfish and a sea turtle. Of course, each trip may be different. Great experience with Captain Anderson’s 3 1/2 hour dolphin and Shell Island tour. Best price through TripShock at $30. The captain will let all the kids (& even those kids at heart) drive the boat. A must do!

Totally worth the money!

about 3 months ago
This boat tour is by far one of our favorite things to do when we come to Florida! The experiences you get for the money you pay is top notch! The staff is also very friendly and engaging. Our three kids even got a chance to help the captain drive the boat this time! I don’t write reviews very often but this one was worth writing and well deserved! Highly recommend this experience!
