Staying Safe On Your Beach Vacation

When you start planning your beach vacation in Panama City Beach, you probably don’t think about all the things that could go wrong. We don’t want you to! Your vacation should be a time to relax, kick back, and enjoy yourself.

But that said, there are a few simple things you can do to make your vacation more enjoyable, more pleasurable. They involve avoiding some of the common but deadly dangers at the beach, and they won’t ruin your fun at all. Let’s take at how to keep your vacation fun and safe at the same time.

Recognize the signs of drowning

If you’ve only ever seen someone in water distress or drowning in a Hollywood movie, you’ve never seen what it really looks like when someone’s drowning. There’s no flailing, no screaming, no begging for help. In many cases of drowning, in fact, the adults nearby have no idea that the person is drowning.

If you’re taking your kids near water, familiarize yourself with the real signs of drowning. Lifeguards have put together instructional videos designed to help parents recognize the signs of water distress or drowning in their kids. One great test – if you think someone’s drowning, ask “Are you okay?” If they can answer you, they’re probably fine. If not? Kids can slip under the water in thirty seconds. Get to them, and get there fast.

Be careful of holes on the beach

Digging holes in the sand is one of those quintessential joys of childhood, but if you’re not careful, joy can turn into tragedy. Every year, a few kids are killed when a hole that they’ve been digging collapses, trapping them under pounds of sand and suffocating them. A couple quick guidelines can keep everyone safer:

  • don’t dig holes that are deeper than the knees of the shortest person in your group
  • fill in any holes you dig before you leave the beach
  • if someone is trapped in sand, do not crowd them. Get immediate help, but the more people trying to excavate a person, the more pressure is put on the sand around them, and the more difficult it is to make progress.

Always have sunscreen

Sunscreen seems like an obvious choice every time you go to the beach, but it’s amazing how many people forget. Sunscreen is important on vacation for some obvious reasons; the first is that getting a sunburn is horrible, and can ruin your vacation. The second is that every time you damage your skin, you make it more likely you’ll eventually get skin cancer. Use sunscreen with the right SPF for you, and reapply regularly. Take breaks out of the sun to give your body a chance to cool off and rest.

Remember as well that the FDA recommends against using spray sunscreen on children because they’re not sure that the chemicals are safe for kids to breathe in.

Be aware of sunstroke

Heat exhaustion happens when your body gets too warm, and becomes dehydrated and loses salt. Symptoms include tiredness, weakness, and muscle cramps. Sunstroke or heatstroke is the next level of complication; the body becomes so affected that it loses the ability to regulate its temperature.

If untreated, heatstroke can be fatal.

Avoiding heatstroke is simple for most people who aren’t working or exercising in the sun. Basically, drink plenty of fluids, take breaks out of the sun to cool down, and avoid sunburns, as they affect your body’s ability to cool off. Be very cautious if someone in your group begins to vomit or seems confused or delirious. Young children in particular can be quickly affected by sunstroke, with catastrophic results.

You should also never leave a child in a parked car, especially in warm weather. Put something in the back seat along with your child to prompt you to look back there. Experts suggest your left shoe; you’ll quickly notice that you’ve forgotten something if you try to walk off with only one shoe on.

Water safety

At Adventures At Sea, we of course follow all Florida laws regarding safety on the water. Sometimes, this means requiring your party to wear life jackets. We know that people sometimes find them annoying, but we’ve also found that people tend to think of old, awkward, bulky life jackets. In recent years, designs have changed dramatically, and staying safe out on the water is much more comfortable than it used to be. And, after all – even strong swimmers can experience disaster. It could happen to anyone, and we want to make sure you stay safe.

Your beach vacation can be fantastic and fun. By making just a few small changes, you can also make sure it stays perfectly safe.

Visiting Dolphins in Panama City Beach

There are many reasons people come to Panama City Beach for vacations. From our new and improved family friendly reputation to the wonderful year-round weather, this area of Florida is a great place to spend your time. But one of the specific reasons it’s great to travel here is visiting dolphins. In Panama City Beach, we have the lucky benefit of being able to take visitors out to see wild dolphins playing in their natural habitat.

Many people believe that, in order to see dolphins up close, they need to go to one of the many water parks in the Panama City Beach area which cater to tourists and visitors. At Adventures at Sea, we know the truth: the people who want to visit wild dolphins schedule a tour with a knowledgeable company and see them up close, the way nature intended.

Visiting Wild Dolphins

In Panama City Beach, there are several different species of dolphin that we encounter, but the most common dolphins – and the most well known – are bottlenose dolphins. Usually ranging from six to twelve feet long and living for as much as fifty years, these dolphins are considered to be very intelligent, and have been known to help injured people in the water as well as assisting with fishing operations.

Inshore dolphins tend to live in groups of about 10. They also make different sounds, including clicks, squawks, and whistles, their “signature sound.”

Why Do We Love Visiting Dolphins

Throughout human history, we’ve told stories about dolphins and the way that they tend to partner with human beings. We’ve considered them mystical beings, whether they’re saving drowning sailors or saying goodbye to humanity right before the planet is destroyed (and saying thanks for the fish!).

It’s no wonder that people travel all the way to the Gulf Coast of Florida to see dolphins up close and in person, but it’s our opinion that the real dolphin experience is to be had out on the waters of the Gulf.

Visiting Dolphins in Panama City Beach

Ready To Visit Dolphins?

If you want to make sure to see dolphins in person this summer, you want to schedule a trip with Adventures at Sea. There are many different ways we schedule tours, including:

  • WaveRunner Tours let you get close to the water and feel the spray on your face as we tour out to Shell Island and then go searching for schools of dolphins.
  • Boat Cruises let you relax and put your feet back as we do all the hard work for you. Want to enjoy the sun and let our captains take you to the places we know that the dolphins love to explore? This trip will give you exactly what you want and need.

When you want to visit dolphins in Panama City Beach without any worry that you’re not seeing the real truth of what dolphins are and can be, you need to visit the dolphins in their own habitat. While seeing them at the local attractions can be great for kids, or if you want to be able to swim with dolphins and feed them directly, there’s nothing that compares to seeing them in the expansive waters of the ocean.

Call us today to schedule your trip out to see dolphins where they love to be!

Join Us For Family Friendly Panama City Beach Vacations!

Let’s tell the truth: Panama City Beach has something of a reputation when it comes to Spring Break. In March and April, there have been times in the past where things have gotten a little too intense. The whole community has come together, however, to revamp things in the spring and make it clear that we’re here for your family friendly Panama City Beach experience.

New laws were passed in PCB last summer which go into effect this spring. The laws state that people can’t consume alcohol on our white sand beaches, that the closing time for bars will be earlier than it was previously, and that drinking in parking lots will be prohibited.

What this means for your family is that, if you’re traveling with kids, you shouldn’t see some of the problematic behavior that has concerned people in the past.

Wondering about some of the upcoming events that your kids might love, if you’re coming to PCB this spring?

The lineup for SpringJam has been announced, and includes Jamie Lyn Spears and Rascall Flatts.

If you like your music just a little smoother, the Seabreeze Jazz Festival will be something to see in late April.

Horse crazy kiddos will have a great chance to see a beautiful horse show, with proceeds going to charity.

And if you want to hear some of the best choral music around, then you need to see the amazing performances at the Panama City Beach Music Festival.

And that’s beyond all the exciting things that always happen in Panama City Beach, from kid friendly attractions to stimulating their imaginations.

If you’re traveling with your kids, it’s a good idea to call ahead and talk to the hotel or condo that you’re planning to rent. Ask them honestly, do they have a family friendly atmosphere? When do things usually quiet down? Check reviews on Yelp and other sources to make sure reviews agree with what you’re hearing from the business itself.

Make sure you’re planning activities that your kids will enjoy! Traveling with frustrated kids is a hassle for everyone, both you and them. Think about when your kids are going to be most relaxed and excited, and plan the fun part of your day at that point. If everyone’s a little tired and overwhelmed after lunch, plan to spend that time relaxing near your hotel’s pool, for example, rather than out in the sun on the beach again.

If you’re not sure what your kids will enjoy, give us a call! We’ve been doing this for years, and we’re happy to help you figure out what times and activities will be best for your family. From a boat cruise to see dolphins in their natural habitat to the chance to see the beach from high above on a parasail, we can give you suggestions on how to prepare them for what the trip will be like, what you might want to bring along to keep it fun for everyone, and how to make it a big success.

The long and the short of it is that we want everyone who comes to Panama City Beach to have a fantastic time. Looking for tips on how to make your PCB vacation more family friendly? Give us a call! We’re glad to help you plan.

Play Sports in Panama City Beach!

People come to Florida’s Emerald Coast for so many reasons. To see the gorgeous white sands beaches. To swim near dolphins. To experience the ocean for the first time. Now, more than every, people are choosing to visit to play sports in Panama City Beach.

Frank Brown Park, a local park that focuses on offering softball, swimming, soccer, and baseball events to visitors and residents, has recently announced a number of upgrades that they say will bring the park up to state of the art. Upgrades will include a new operations building, new dugouts, and new fencing. By 2018, they will also add a new sports village to their portfolio.

If you’re visiting Panama City Beach for spring break, or live in the area and wonder what you might want to do on a beach all day, we have a variety of fun suggestions for sports to play on the beach! Here are just a few ideas:


A beach side classic, volleyball nets dot the beach throughout Panama City Beach. Play a pick up game with whoever is there, or bring your friends and a ball to play. Run, dive into the sand, and then splash into the waves to cool off. It’s a favorite for a reason!

If you’re visiting the area, many of the hotels and condo rental buildings in the area have volleyball courts, just check their amenities.

And if you’re looking for a more formal volleyball experience in the area, check out the Emerald Coast Volleyball Club in nearby Fort Walton.

Ultimate Frisbee

If you still think of Frisbee as the goofy game that people in the 70s played with neon plastic discs, you need to pay attention: the sport has come a long way. From disc golf courses (Joe Moody Harris Park has a nine hole course) to Ultimate Frisbee leagues on the beach, these plastic discs have kept pace with modern sports. You’ll have tons of fun playing with your friends, or making brand new friends through the sport. Plus, if you need a Frisbee while you’re in town, many different restaurants use them as plates and souvenirs! You’ll never have to walk far to find one.


If you want the rush of extreme sports without the danger, you need to schedule a parasailing trip. While this is just one of the many rides we offer through Adventures at Sea, there’s nothing else quite like it. Parasailing is great for everyone, from people who’ve always wanted to fly but aren’t ready to try parachuting to those who just want to see the beach from a bird’s eye view. You can capture amazing photos or videos, or keep the entire experience for yourself. Either way, we’re sure you’ll love it. Go up on your own, or with someone whose hand you want to hold.

Whatever brings you to Panama City Beach, make sure to plan a little bit of time to do the thing that you love most, whether that’s engaging in some extreme, adrenaline inducing sports, luxuriating on the beach, or working up a sweat on the soccer field, Panama City Beach has you covered. We’re the Florida destination for spring break vacationers, but we are also a great space for families all year round.

Panama City Beach Holidays – Excitement Throughout The Year

Panama City Beach just celebrated its 35th annual Christmas Parade, put on by the Optimist Club, on December 12. A great reminder that the white sands and deep green waters of PCB aren’t just for summer beach adventures, but exciting vacations all year round. There are tons of opportunities to spend  holidays in Panama City Beach, leading to tons of one-of-a-kind adventures.

Each year, the Christmas Parade is just one of the many events put on by the Optimists Club. Transforming Pier Park into a Winter Wonderland is no easy task, but it’s also a rewarding adventure. Kids and families alike love to see their Florida homes turned into a spectacle of delight, and everyone enjoys the parade and fun.

The Optimists Club hosts a variety of events throughout the year, from golf tournaments in March to Firefighter Appreciation in September, and Christmas events in December. Many of the events are free to the public, and donations are generally specified for local charities.

The Chamber of Commerce also organizes a variety of events throughout the year, often centered on a variety of holidays. In Panama City Beach, there are two ball drops on New Year’s Eve; earlier in the day, a family friendly ball drop centers on tossing beach balls onto the beach, while a traditional lighted ball descends at midnight on the beach itself. From events as big as New Year’s Eve to holidays as quiet and calm as Arbor Day, the Chamber of Commerce works hard to bring a variety of celebrations to Panama City Beach’s holidays.

If you want to find smaller, more local events to celebrate in Panama City beach, there are a variety of events through the winter season, from local markets to concerts and art exhibitions.

Mardi Gras is always a big draw for Panama City Beach holidays, from local residents to visiting friends. Many of February’s events for 2016 are already on the books, meaning that it’s easy for you to start planning ahead on how you want to spend this amazing, cultural holiday. If the answer is “with great friends, on exquisite beaches with some of the most beautiful water in the world,” then you’ll want to plan to spend Mardi Gras in PCB. Along with more adult events, Panama City Beach focuses on making sure that the day is fun for the whole family, kids included.

And of course, even if it isn’t really a holiday for the rest of the world, Panama City Beach isn’t called the Spring Break Capital of the World for nothing. Many venues have started announcing their 2016 events, so we know that visitors will be able to see Brett Eldredge, Kaskade, and many more amazing musicians. Many resorts, bars, and restaurants, cater to students during spring break, making sure that visitors get the best possible bang for their buck.

Whatever holiday you’re looking to spend in Panama City Beach, we want to make it as fun as possible. When your celebration is done, and you’re looking for something fun to do, make an exciting memory out on the water with one of the many events and tours that we offer at Adventures at Sea. Give us a call to see where we’ll fit in your schedule!

Spend Your Holidays In Panama City Beach

While Florida is a popular destination for college students during spring break, and northerners trying to escape the endless gray of February in New England, not everyone thinks of spending their holidays in Panama City Beach. If you’re planning a December vacation, however, there are several fun family friendly trips that you can organize on the water and beaches on Florida’s Emerald Coast.

What’s the weather like during Panama City Beach holidays?

Florida’s weather is mild and comfortable year-round. In December, we generally see temperatures in the mid to high 60s, and tend to see a mix of sunny days and clouds. While this Isn’t exactly weather where you want to stretch out on the sand and work on your tan, there’s still plenty of fun to be had on the water.

Boat trips for everyone!

Many customers continue to enjoy our boat trips throughout the winter weather. From a cruise out to Shell Island to visiting the places where dolphins love to play, you can take your kids out on a nature adventure and enjoy the gorgeous weather at the same time. If your kids are older, have them talk to their teachers about whether they can write a report for extra credit on the experience!

Florida weather is mild all year round, especially if you’re used to the more frigid winters up north. In December, air temperatures tend to be in the mid-60s, and days vary between overcast and sunny.

Is the water warm enough for snorkeling or a WaveRunner tour?

It depends. Surface water temperatures tend to be in the mid to high 60s, even around the holidays in Panama City Beach, but there are many different factors that can cause that temperature to drop. If we’ve had several days of off-shore winds or heavy rain, that can cause the water temperature to be lower than comfortable.

If you’re not sure whether or not you’ll be comfortable in the water, give us a call! We’ve been doing this for years, and can give you some good guidance on whether or not we’d recommend a wetsuit, and what sort is likely to keep you warm and comfortable without overheating.

Ultimately, off the coast of Florida, activities like surfing, exploring the area on WaveRunners, and snorkeling in gorgeous areas like St. Andrew’s Park are year round activities. As long as you’re safe and comfortable, we’ll make sure you get where you’re going!

Fish for your holiday dinner!

Not a fan of the typical turkey or ham dinner for Christmas? What about trying your own fresh caught fish?

If you want to do something truly different while you celebrate the holiday season in Panama City Beach, schedule a charter fishing trip with us. Unlike some other fishing destinations, the Gulf means that there are excellent fish to catch year round. Our captains are very familiar with the area; we carry all the right bait and tackle to make sure that you get the fish you’re looking for.

Once you’ve got your catch, we love to recommend cooking tips, if you’re going to tackle the task on your own, or our favorite local restaurants that specialize in cooking fresh caught fish.

If you’re looking for a fresh way to create great memories this holiday season, or one in the future, consider enjoying some new experiences on Florida’s Emerald Coast. When you spend your holidays in Panama City Beach, you get great pictures, excellent memories—and a story you’ll tell for years to come.

Looking for fun activities in Panama City Beach for Spring Break?

If you’re planning to head down to Panama City Beach for Spring Break next year, you’re probably looking at music line-ups, hotel reservations, and wondering what other fun activities there are in Panama City Beach. When you’re looking for a special memory of a wild trip you took with friends, come to Adventures at Sea. We have an adventure for everyone!

We were delighted to hear that Rascal Flatts will be headlining the Panama City Beach SpringJam Festival. The festival itself lasts from April 7 to 9, and Rascal Flatts will take the stage on April 9.

Whether you’re opting for a three day pass or a single day pass to the SpringJam Festival, you are probably looking for other fun things to do in Panama City Beach. At Adventures at Sea, we’ve got you covered.

The festival grounds open each day at 3:30, which means that you have every morning free to sunbathe, enjoy the gorgeous Florida weather, and visit the beautiful waters of the Emerald Coast. Many visitors consider April the perfect month to visit Florida; the temperatures are in the high 70s, the sun is bright and strong, but tourist season Isn’t yet in full swing.

If you want to spend your morning soaking in some sun, we can help you by renting you a lounge chair. After all, lying on a beach towel means you’ll end up with sand everywhere, and bringing your own lounge chair on your spring break vacation is frustrating. When you rent a lounge chair from us, we’ll position it for you, and if you need it moved, we’ll take care of it. We’ll make everything simple so that you can focus on relaxing.

If you’re spending your moment on the beach, but want something fun to break up the morning, consider a banana boat ride. You and five friends will be towed along behind one of our boats, splashing through the waves and enjoying the wild ride. You could spend your morning parasailing, seeing the view of the beach and water that only the birds usually get to see. If someone in your group has a physical difference that makes banana boating or Jet Skiing difficult, parasailing can be an excellent and inclusive choice.

But if you’re only interested in one or two events at the festival, and are looking for ways to fill a little more time, we have several options that might intrigue you. You could schedule a dolphin tour, where we take you to all the places where local wild dolphin schools congregate. You could also take a trip out to Shell Island, one of the last undeveloped areas in Florida, to collect shells or sunbathe in an untouched environment.

Or maybe you’re looking for a little bit of peace and quiet in the middle of your Spring Break excitement. Consider taking a fishing trip. When you charter a trip with us, you don’t have to worry about gear or a fishing license; you get the benefit of our experience, from the best bait to the best way to cook your catch. If you’re not interested in cooking the fish yourself, we can direct you to some of the local restaurants that specialize in cooking fresh caught fish.

You could also take a sailboat trip. If you’ve never been sailing, it’s something to try. There’s something incredibly different about moving over the water, only the wind driving you along. Even if—especially if—the rest of your Spring Break plans are wild and exciting, make some time for something quiet and contemplative. You might be surprised at how much you enjoy it.

Looking for fun activities in Panama City Beach, either for Spring Break or for your next family vacation? We have you covered. Contact us today to schedule your next adv

There’s Fun To Be Had With A Jet Ski Tour

If you’re visiting Florida, or looking for a way to entertain visitors from out of town, you might have considered a Jet Ski rental. After all, Jet Skis and WaveRunners are a fantastic way to get close to the water while enjoying the wild rush of the salt spray in your face and the feeling of skipping over the waves. But after you’ve raced around a few times, what else is there really to do on a Jet Ski?

With one of our Jet Ski tours, we can answer that question!

Sunset Cruise

If you’re looking for a romantic tete-a-tete after your water play, a sunset cruise is always an option. Though we often do this tour on a boat, if being a little closer to water is more your style, then we can arrange to take you and your someone out on a Jet Ski tour to see the sunset. The way the setting sun seems to light the water on fire is unbelievable; photographs can’t capture it. If you’re here in the Emerald Coast, we recommend that you see it for yourself.

Dolphin Tours

If you’ve never seen wild dolphins playing in the water, you won’t believe how incredibly beautiful and inspirational the vision is. While you’re exploring Florida’s Gulf Coast, take time to go on a jet ski tour to visit the wild dolphin schools that live in the area. You’ll get to see them play, splashing through the water and waves; if you’re lucky, they might even come up to the Jet Skis to say hello.

Because these are wild dolphins, not the trained in captivity dolphins you see at the different Panama City Beach water attractions, we can’t guarantee that they’ll be where we expect them to be, but our tour leaders have been doing this for a number of years, and know the places they’re likely to find dolphins. We almost never come back to shore without seeing these beautiful sea animals up close.

Gorgeous Snorkeling

If you like to snorkel, Panama City Beach is the best place to be. St. Andrews State Park is considered one of the best places to snorkel in the Gulf Coast. If the goal of your WaveRunner tour or Jet Ski tour is to end up at somewhere where the snorkeling is amazing, let us know; we love to show people the natural beauty of the area. We’ll show you the most amazing snorkeling locations, where you can see the natural wildlife on Florida’s sea floor—and we’ll make sure that getting there is an exciting ride on your Jet Ski rental.

Visit Shell Island

One of the few untouched and undeveloped spaces left in Florida, no visit to the Emerald Coast is complete without a trip to Shell Island. Remember that the island isn’t equipped with restaurants, bathrooms, or trash cans, so you need to take out what you bring in, but that helps to support the beautiful natural environment, and keep it beautiful for generations to come. Pack a picnic lunch in the waterproof compartment of our WaveRunner, and then enjoy it on the beach of Shell Island.

There’s a lot more fun to a WaveRunner or Jet Ski tour than just splashing through the waves and racing your friends—although that’s definitely fun too! Schedule your trip today and make sure that you tell us all the awesome things you want to achieve; we’ll help you fit them all in!

See dolphins play on your sunset boat tour

Have you ever seen the sunset while dolphins play in the surf? Toured the natural beauty of Shell Island, one of the few Florida landscapes that remains undeveloped and untouched? Put your head back and relaxed as the waves splash around you, and someone else worries about the steering?

When you visit Adventures At Sea, all of these are on the table.

Many visitors to Panama City Beach book their boat tour hoping to see dolphins at play in their natural environment. Although most of us know dolphins from their TV appearances and starring roles at aquatic attractions, few have had the luck and privilege of seeing dolphins in their natural environment. Dolphins splashing through a sunset surf is something you absolutely have to see in your life, if you can.

Sunset cruises are a romantic way to get out on the water on Florida’s Emerald Coast. Whether you’re thinking about a pontoon boat or a sailboat, we can help you create the perfect trip.

Two dolphins swim side by side over bright blue waves

Four reasons to schedule a boat tour to see dolphins, the sunset, and so much more:

Someone else does all the work

When you book a boat tour with us, we take care of all the irritating parts of a boat trip. We navigate, steer, watch out for other boaters and water hazards, and make sure that everything goes smoothly.

You sit back and relax

Whatever that looks like for you. You can put your feet up and watch the water flow by, read a book, take video, or visit with the friends and family here with you. This is your trip; enjoy it in the best possible way for you!

We take you where you want to go

From Shell Island to dolphin locations, from fishing spots to gorgeous views on the sunset, we make sure that you get where you want to go without any worry about how to read a chart, or which areas you might need to avoid. We’re the experts on water around the Gulf Coast of Florida; we’ll take care of it.

You focus on your vacation, not navigation

If what you want to do is rent a boat and take the wheel yourself, we’re happy to make that happen for you. But if you want the chance to kick back and focus on relaxation, on taking great photographs that will make everyone at home jealous, and on reconnecting with the friends and family who’ve made your trip with you, then what you should do is schedule a boat tour for your visit. We can take you fishing, find you a secluded, private, and safe space to do some snorkeling, or help you find where dolphins are playing.

If you have a romantic plan in mind, we can take you somewhere where you can ask an important question as the setting sun sets the water on fire. If you’re traveling with your kids, we can find a quiet place where they can watch the beauty of the sunset without disturbing other boaters or beachgoers.

Our goal at Adventures At Sea is to make your boat tour as enjoyable and exciting as possible. Whatever you want to see or do on the water, we’re here to make it happen. If you’ve never seen dolphins playing in sunset waters, or enjoyed the bird’s eye view of wildlife that snorkeling gives you, or cut through the waves with just the wind at your back, it’s something you should experience.

Let us make your vacation one to remember.
