ENJOY THE AWE-INSPIRING BEAUTY OF THE DOLPHIN SUNSET CRUISE IN PANAMA CITY BEACH!

Enjoy a 2-hour sailing catamaran sunset cruise exploring the beautiful waters around Shell Island. Perfect for couples or families, the “Island Time” is a 50-foot long sailing cruise catamaran that’s wide for a stable ride and perfect for Shell Island boat tours. Located at Lagoon Pontoons Marina, right down the road from Capt. Anderson’s Restaurant, we begin our cruise through the calm waters of Grand Lagoon then past the wildlife of St. Andrew’s State Park. We’ll then continue our sailing cruise into the beautiful emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico for sunset sailing if it’s calm enough there. If you are in search of sunset cruises in Panama City Beach, Florida then this cruise is what you have been looking for!

We’ve specialized in dolphin sails, since 1999. The dolphins are usually plentiful, and we sometimes catch a glimpse of them leaping out of water or see a baby swimming alongside mom. Even our locally-based crew gets excited for those special occasions! If the Gulf is a little rough, our sailing cruise heads through St. Andrews Bay, plentiful with dolphins and brilliant sunsets over the water.

We have a stocked bar with beer and wine, and all of our snacks and non-alcoholic drinks are just $2.00. We’re known for our famous “Rum Punch,” tropical music and entertainment including fun games and dancing after the sun go down.


**Online bookings only available up to 2 hours prior to departure time.

Olivia, Sara, and Captain Heath are great. My wife and I enjoyed our time on the 2 hour sunset cruise. We booked this after our 3 hour dolphin and snorkel cruise the day before. Drinks are affordable. Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention, the sunset was beautiful.

This experience blew me out the water, it was much better than I expected. We saw tons of dolphins, then an amazing sunset, and finally on the way back to the dock we saw a family of deers. HANDS DOWN This is well worth the money.

Tristan did a great job as captain Sarah and Savannah were awesome hostesses. Highly recommend this trip! Cloud cover dampened the dust part but we saw multiple dolphins!

The weather is getting rough, what do I do?

If it seems a storm is approaching, the crew and office staff keep watch on the radar and discuss options. If you are nervous about inclement weather you can cancel and reschedule at any time, but cancelling the cruise is usually a last-minute decision. It is highly recommended that you let the Island Time management make the call. If a trip is cancelled due to bad weather you will have the opportunity to cancel, reschedule, or be refunded.
