Water Planet offers a variety of dolphin swim tours for the whole family in Panama City Beach, Florida, including fun and educational swim-with-the-dolphins tours and dolphin therapy programs and dolphin camp for children with special needs.

All of our dolphin tours and dolphin viewing combine the natural beauty of a dolphin encounter with education for an experience rated by some as the most moving encounter of their life. All programs are geared towards a low impact eco-tourism management as an educational medium to marine wildlife conservation and protection. Our Shell Island dolphin tours and eco tours will take you to Shell Island nature preserve, which is also a bird sanctuary.

We are the oldest (since 1994) and most experienced wild dolphin swim facility in Panama City! Our swim with the dolphins tours include an educational briefing, a sightseeing boat ride across the Bay of St. Andrews, the dolphin encounters, the exploration of Shell Island, a marine ecology wet lab and bird watching (by request), shelling and exploring boat wrecks.

We are located at only 45 minutes from Destin. Since it is difficult to find a dolphin swim tour in Destin, we welcome visitors from the Destin/Ft. Walton area to our dolphin swim programs in Panama City Beach..

Our one day Wild Dolphin Swim Tour is offered in Panama City Beach, Florida, March through October.

Children are welcome to participate in our dolphin tours. Our staff has years of experience with helping children on board the boat and in the water during their dolphin swim and dolphin watch. Your children will love the close proximity of dolphins and will probably remember the experience for the rest of their lives.
