The Activity we Experienced

What we chose to do

Dolphins were Following our Boat

How did you discover this activity?

We saw quite a few posts about the Sea Screamer on a Panama City Beach Facebook page, and every picture we saw, the dolphins were so close to the boat! Our daughter, 10, LOVES dolphins so we surprised her (we all went) with a dolphin cruise. She said it was the best day or her life. It was even a really great experience for our 14 and 6 year old boys, too! Cody and Garrett are very engaging and knowledgeable. We nearly left the cruise and booked the sunset one for the same day!

When did you book your tour compared to the departure date?

We booked 8 weeks in advance, just to make sure we would have a spot while we were on vacation.

Why did you choose this activity?

Our 10 year old daughter absolutely loves dolphins and has asked to do this cruise every year we vacation, so we decided to book it this time around, and we are so glad we did! We will be going again for sure!

How did you get to the activity location?

We took the main beach road from our resort to the Sea Screamer location. It was very easy to get to, the parking lot was easy to manage, and there was plenty of seating available for us while we waited for departure.

What was your experience with the activity’s staff?

All of the staff, from checking in, getting our departure picture, to Cody and Garrett on board, were very pleasant. It was very obvious they all knew what they were doing and really enjoyed their job! Cody knew so much about Panama City Beach, and was very descriptive while driving, and Garrett was super friendly and helpful!

Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?

The most obvious highlight is getting to see dolphins so close, and that they followed our boat, it was amazing. Also, my boys especially loved the cannon firing and hearing the echo. They both thought it was really neat how they figured out the best area to park the boat to get that echo.

We also really enjoyed getting to see the crab traps and handling the crabs that were caught! Our oldest child, 15, loved getting to drive the boat, too. Our other children, 10 and 6, just didn’t want to drive.

My husband and I really enjoyed learning so much about St. Andrews State Park. It was really neat that the other attractions happening on the water (jet ski tours, banana boat tours, guided fishing tours, plus the Sea Screamer) all had respect for each other and their businesses, and worked together on the water. They respected each other’s space, but still informed other tours of where dolphins could be spotted.

It was really a magical time for our kids, and they wanted to go back for the sunset cruise that night! It was well worth it and we will definitely go again on our future vacations!

Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?

This is definitely a recommendation for all ages! It was so much fun, and the crew was very friendly!
