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 Treasure Island Marina, across 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 fully stocked bar, along with beer and wine, and all of our snacks and non-alcoholic drinks are just $1.50. We’re known for our famous “Rum Punch,” tropical music and entertainment including fun games and dancing after the sun goes down.

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

Incredible experience! Been to PCB countless times but had never been on a trip like this. Crew was amazing, the sunset was BREATHTAKING, and we even got to see a full moon on the ride back to the wharf. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Great crew. Boat was clean. Just a great experience. Price was perfect. We were able to see dolphins and spent 1 hr on Shell Island

This week we actually did the Sunset Cruise for the first time and also booked last minute on the Shell island snorkel tour. We’ve done the shell island tour several times already with Island Time and we just keep coming back. We love the hospitality, sailing, captain/mates, AND the rum punch. You’ll be happy you booked for the price, family time, and the experience. Support local!

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.
