Gulf fishing can be fun from your boat rental, from one of the piers, or straight from one of the beaches. Just decide on the type of fishing you’d like to do, and Panama City Beach can help you make it happen.

Swimming with Dolphins
After a long day of fishing, jump into the calm blue waters and enjoy some good old fashioned swimming among the dolphins. You can raft-up with other boats in the area or just set sail towards a hidden beach where you can soak up the sun and enjoy Florida’s endless sun.

Pier Park

Pier Park is a launching and shopping area that is full of lots of bars and restaurants. Relax and have a satisfying meal before setting sail again on your Panama City Beach boat rental.

Panama City Beach

What better place is there to relax than Panama City Beach itself? When you rent a boat, you can spend the day enjoying incredible sunsets, beautiful clear water, long sandy beaches, and a laid-back atmosphere in lots of restaurants and bars near the water. The water is usually light green, and you can often see dolphins, porpoises, and turtles swimming around.
