Panama City Beach Activities

Snorkel at Shell Island

We start by swinging for the fences. Shell Island is one of the most exotic beach locations in the area, and one that offers many rewards. Shell Island is only accessible by boat and is conveniently located near our Panama City Beach vacation rentals.

Thankfully, you don’t have to rent a private cruiser to make the trip a reality. Shell Island Snorkeling and Dolphin Cruises will offer not just a journey over to the isolated island and not just a trip back, but both dolphin cruising adventures and snorkeling opportunities.

Guests snorkel for shells and marine life, stop off on the shores of Shell Island, and spot for dolphins at the surface. The boat carries 24 people on a nearly day-long adventure. If you want to fit multiple beach activities into one, consider contacting this top-tier tour provider.

Parasail the Skies Above Panama City Beach

Panama City Parasail provides a lofty launch from the back of a boat and into the sky. Parasailing is unquestionably one of the best ways to see the beaches. It is welcoming for families and beginners who have no experience in the sky. The captain is a certified professional.

Also, check out Panama City Parasail for banana boats and dolphin tours. The versatile crew can open up new adventurous possibilities for you during your vacation stay.

Walk the Russell-Fields City Pier

The famous Russell-Fields Pier carries you out into the water further than any other pier in the Gulf of Mexico. This impressive pier gives you the perfect opportunity to scan the waters for fish, sea turtles, dolphins, and rays, which have all been sighted numerous times during the day.

Visitors can walk and fish off the pier at their leisure. It is located at City Beach. Families will be happy to know that the beach is watched over by lifeguards and it allows for leashed pets. With eleven beach volleyball courts, a nearby shopping district, and some of the best views anywhere, this stop is one well worth taking.

The Many Activities at the Pirates of the High Seas Fest

This annual event is a stupendously large local get-together. Pirates course through every activity. Kids can come on out for the Little Pirates Play Zone, which features bounce houses, face painting, and many other activities that change by the year.

Kids can receive fishing instruction, go on a treasure hunt and visit a magic show. The event even showcases a pirate pet parade. It is exactly what it sounds like, and it may be the greatest thing ever invented.

Adults can find a lot to love with the famous Pirate Crawl. Music and fireworks close each night’s celebrations. The Pirates of the High Seas event may only be once a year, but it is so big and so magical that it deserves mention here. It is even worth planning your trip around.

The event is Oct 5th to the 7th at Pier Park and the Grand Lagoon. Contact us for schedule details and more.
