Frequently Asked Questions
You must be at least 18 years old to rent a jet ski. Also, Florida law requires anyone born after January 1, 1988, to present a picture ID and a boater safety certificate.

Your jet ski may reach speeds of up to 55 mph, depending on conditions. Your guide will keep you in sight if you want to try out a little speed on your way to the dolphins. If you prefer a slower pace, we can manage that, too.
You don’t need any prior experience to take our jet ski dolphin tour. You’ll be provided with instruction before your tour begins.
Well, we’re pretty confident in our ability to help you see some dolphins on your tour. But, the dolphins at Panama City Beach are wild creatures. We can’t guarantee that they’ll cooperate with our plans. Our tour guides are familiar with the area and where the dolphins can be found. We’ll do our best to make sure you get to see the wonderful creatures up close and in their natural habitat during your jet ski dolphin tour.
Our tour guide will take you to some of the best places to see dolphins, including Shell Island. If you’d like to stop at the island to snorkel or look for shells, we can do that, too. It is your tour, after all.
Your jet ski will have enough room to stash your snorkel gear, bottled water or anything else that can handle getting wet. You won’t want to bring anything that can’t handle being in the water, though. Plan to bring what you would need to be out in the sun for the duration of your tour–just make sure it’s sealed up tight.
We recommend that expectant mothers do not ride our jet skis.
