This was my 3 and 5-year-old’s first trip to Florida. We wanted to do something they have never done before so decided to look for a dolphin boat ride.
How did you get to the activity location?
We were 15 minutes away from the condo we were staying at in Panama City Beach
What was your experience with the activity’s staff?
We did our dolphin excursion with Marcus. He was very friendly to our whole family and was extremely knowledgeable about the area and about dolphins.
Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?
This was my 3 and 5-year-old’s first trip to Florida. Both kids love dolphins so we thought they would be ecstatic to take a dolphin boat ride. So glad we did!!! Marcus didn’t go too fast with his boat at first which made the kids more comfortable and less scared ( by the end of the boat ride they only wanted to go fast.)For the first 30 minutes or so we didn’t see any dolphins but that changed quickly once we got further into the bay. We were able to encounter a mother dolphin and her baby as well as many others. Marcus was nice enough to slow his boat and follow them as much as he could so we could enjoy seeing them. We also were able to see a sea turtle and many birds. We all had such a great time!! Just seeing how excited my kids were when they saw a wild dolphin in the water just about brought tears to my eyes. We will definitely be doing this excursion again. Highly recommended.
Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?
Highly recommended!! Perfect for first-time Florida visitors and for families of all ages.
