Boat Rentals
Pontoon boats are by far the most popular boat to rent in Panama City or more specifically, Panama City Beach. While other types of power boats are available for rent, pontoon boats make a great platform for leisurely snorkeling in the clear waters off Panama City Beach.

Jet Ski Rentals
Jets Skis and Waverunners rule in Panama City! Rent a jet ski and head out to popular Shell Island for some snorkeling fun or just cruise the beautiful waters off Panama City Beach. Many rental centers specialize in jet skis, kayaks, parasailing and even banana boat rides.

Sailing
Panama City and Panama City Beach have a large number of sailboats for rent or for charter. Most popular are sailboat charters that take visitors to popular snorkeling sites where you can see Florida’s famous bottlenose dolphins along the way. Also includes sailing schools.

Fishing Charters
Many Panama City marinas and boat charters offer a combination of fishing, dolphin watching and even snorkeling. Some boat captains that primarily offer fishing charters will happily be your scenic guide as well and are sure to know where the dolphins are. Enjoy it all on one boat cruise!

Power Boat Charters
For many serious boaters on vacation in Florida, a power boat charter is the way to go. From small power boats to yachts, these boat charters come with a captain and crew that know the best places to go along the coast off Panama City Beach and along the Panhandle.

Kayak Rentals
Panama City and Florida Panhandle kayak rentals and guided kayak tours. From the pristine waters of the Black River to the clear waters off the coast, the Florida Panhandle is the perfect place for serious and even first time paddlers.

Dolphin Tours
Panama City Beach has it’s own resident pod of Florida’s popular bottle nosed dolphins. Guided dolphin tours are offered by many boat rental businesses from power boat charters to sailboat charters. These captains know the dolphins’ habits and where to find them!

Sightseeing Cruises
The Panama City area including Panama City Beach and the nearby barrier islands offer world class scenic boat cruises where you’ll see everything from dolphins to spectacular Florida sunsets. Public cruises and private charters are available.

Eco-Tours
Tours designed for nature lovers and tourists that want to see the "Real Florida". These charter boats offer sightseeing services that specialize in highlighting the natural beauty and wildlife of Florida's "Emerald Coast". Wildlife from pelicans to dolphins are common.

Diving
Dive shops and dive boats are popular all over Florida and the Panama City area is no exception. The Panama City area is home to several of Florida’s best dive boats with highly qualified captains and crews that are dedicated to exciting and safe diving.

Snorkeling
Next to riding jet skis, snorkeling is the most popular “on the water” activity in the Panama City area. Many boat charters specialize in snorkel tours from the deck of a pontoon boat or a sailboat. Both private and walk-on snorkel tours are available.

Weddings-at-Sea
Next to Beach Weddings, Weddings-at-Sea are the most popular way to celebrate a marriage in the state of Florida. The Panama City area offers large power yachts for large wedding parties or sailboats for smaller more intimate ceremonies.
