Why Shell Island Boat Rentals and Tours?
Decades of Experience
We’re celebrating our 36th year of offering tours and rentals in Panama City Beach. We consistently offer the largest fleet of new boats in the area.
Small Group Tours
Unlike larger tour boats that carry up to 150 people, Blue Dolphin Tours carries only 6 passengers per boat and our Large Family Cruiser boat 15 passengers (children included). We can have you in the water with your snorkel gear on quickly and without all the splashing and disruptions that large groups create, often frightening the dolphins away.
Friendly and Professional
Our professional yet easy-going attitude has helped make us a success. Most importantly, our valued repeat customers continue to support us, and we invite you to discover why!
