Good crew, horrible location, save your money
Jul 2021 • Family
The boat ride was pleasant and the crew was nice. But the water was nasty brown. Water attractions require you to be very physically fit to get on in the water and no child could possibly climb on them by themselves. Not everything advertised was there. Due to the water conditions, snorkeling was much to be desired. If you ventured deeper, it became almost black. I would not do this again.

Not worth the money
Jul 2021 • Family
We would not book this trip again. Catamaran was nice but the area they take you on shell island is on the bay side not the gulf side. Water is not nice on that side if you are planning on snorkeling. Kids enjoyed the inflatables but got bored quickly. On the 3 hr trip you spend about 1 1/2 hrs on the island and 1 hr cruising up the bay to gulf to look for dolphins. If you want to go to shell island for clear turquoise water, shelling and snorkeling find a different tour - this is not it.

family-friendly fun
Jul 2021
we enjoyed our experience. the crew were fun and friendly. I think they found the good balance between keeping things family-friendly without being boring. my child has sensory processing disorder and enjoyed the trip. the inflatables were too hard for my elementary school-aged children to navigate , despite them being fairly athletic for their ages. it worked out fine for us because the adults from another family helped balancing the floats. i would suggest having at least one adult if not two in the water to help the kids if you have young ones. teenagers and adults seems to get on much easier.
captain was very considerate in navigating around the waves to keep the boat as steady as possible. he made an extra stop when we spotted dolphins to ensure everyone got to see them. appreciate being able to tip through venmo. pleasant experience and would recommend.

No banana boat but nice crew
Jul 2021 • Family
It was overall a good experience. Loved the boat and the bar. But shell island itself wasn’t the best. It smelled like sewer. My kids and others struggled to climb on the inflatables but they still enjoyed themselves. No banana boats were there

Fantastic Mid-Day Getaway
Jun 2021 • Family
Fantastic experience for kids and adults. Crew was great and the drinks were made to order perfectly. The island has plenty of activities for adults, couples and kids. It was definitely worth the time and price. BONUS: Dolphin watching on the return trip worked out great.

Great family beach day!
The crew was fantastic, the boat was great, the island was fun. The water activities kept us busy including the obstacle course. Unfortunately the banana boat rides were out of commission. On the way back we even got to see some dolphins. All in all a great trip.

This is a must when visiting Panama City
Jun 2021 • Family
We had an amazing time on this trip. Would definitely recommend for anyone traveling to Panama City. There was plenty to do for the kids. While the adults could relax with a bar on the boat, or you could get out and enjoy the inflatables with the kids. Ryan and Moseley kept us all laughing and made sure we all seen dolphins. They made sure the adults and kids all had a good time. We will definitely come back.
