Wild dolphins have been a symbol for safe travels and good luck at sea since ancient times.
So it’s no surprise that our fascination with these playful creatures has not wavered.
Dolphin Express is committed to giving guests a chance to see wild dolphins in their natural, undisturbed habitat. Since we’re lucky to have so many dolphins here in Panama City, Dolphin Express is able to stay within a mile off the coast.
The company’s vessel is a huge, open-air boat that seats up to 91 passengers, so bring the whole family. You won’t be able to miss the bright yellow paint job!
Seeing wild dolphins is an unforgettable experience. Managing Partner James Vaught tells us about how the experience keeps people coming back for more.
“We’ve been doing it about 20 years here at Panama City Beach. Getting to see and view the dolphins in their natural habitat never gets old,” he says. “People do it time in and time out … sometimes two or three time during their trip just because of the excitement of it.”
But this isn’t your average dolphin tour.
The Dolphin Express cruise is accompanied with a full narration that includes facts about the dolphins, history of the area, and answers to any questions you might have. Even though seeing wild dolphins is never guaranteed, Dolphin Express captains know the most active spots in the bay for finding friendly fins.
Feeling the urge to bust a move?
You’re in luck, because Dolphin Express has a hula hoop contest onboard every tour. Not much of a hula hooper? Grab a water cannon and spray your friends instead. Yeah, things get a little wet and wild on the deck of Dolphin Express, so you’ll want to wear water friendly attire.
Enjoy the sun and sea aboard the Dolphin Express and create memories that you and your family won’t soon forget.
Dolphin Express is located at 5325 South Lagoon Drive in Panama City Beach FL. For more information or to buy tickets, visit the Dolphin Express website or call (850) 235-8051.
