We have been coming to Panama City Beach for 10 years and do a snorkeling trip every year. This was our first trip with Flippin’ Awesome Adventures and we were blown away! Capt. Chris is absolutely fantastic and it was such an awesome experience for all of us! We got to see and learn about so many different sea creatures and just had a blast! Thank you so much again Capt. Chris! We will be booking with you again on our next trip!

This makes the second time I’ve had the luxury of riding with Flippin’ Awesome Adventures, and I enjoyed it just as much if not more this time around. We got to swim through the shallow sand banks which felt like a warm summer bath. Fish of various shapes and sizes were swimming all around us. Some would gently nibble at our toes as if to say hello. It was a little freaky at first but they didn’t hurt at all. Next we went searching on the boat for larger creatures and eventually got to see a dolphin and a giant sea turtle. Afterwards we got to go snorkeling, which was admittedly a little scary for me since I’d never snorkeled before but the captain, Chris helped me get the hang of it which was very reassuring, so it ended up being a fun new experience for me. Lastly, we ended up on an island with a beautiful white beach overlooking the Gulf. My family and I took some photos during the sunset and we ventured back to the mainland. Overall, it was an amazing experience that’s fun for the whole family. Would highly recommend.


GREATEST family fun EVER! Capt Chris has a one of a kind unique tour of St Andrew's Bay and Shell Island that words can't describe. From a boat ride, dolphin and sea turtle sightings, various unique sea creatures, swimming and a short hike across Shell Island from Bay to Gulf where the water is absolutely prestine! We even saw a couple Mermaids ,) A MUST DO TOUR!!


We booked the marine biology package, which was a four hour private tour. Captain Chris met us at the dock and took the best care of us the entire trip. He even has hair ties on board if you should forget yours at home. These are a necessity with longer hair as he zooms you across St. Andrew’s bay in search of cool underwater critters. Every question we asked about sea life, he had an answer for, as he is a real-life marine biologist. The dolphins gave us a great show and Chris knows where they can most likely be found. We found too many creatures to name in a review, however, my favorite were the urchin and sea squirt. Our tour began at 4:00 and was the absolute BEST time of the day to be on the water. Captain Chris also took us across the bay to Shell Island, where we watched the sun as it was just beginning to set. I 100% recommend this tour to anyone that wants to learn more about our local aquatic ecosystem. I’ve lived in this area my entire life and haven’t ever seen most of sea life that we identified on this tour.


This was a great trip with my husband and three littles! They loved learning about the sea creatures that we found! Especially on double red flag days, when we couldn’t get in the ocean at our hotel, this boat trip was definitely worth it. Thanks again!


We had the most Flippin Awesome time during our cruise with Flippin' Awesome Adventures ! Captain Chris is the most charismatic and knowledgeable person I know. Captain Chris has a degree in Marine Biology and decades worth of working knowledge & experience from it. He guarantees FUN! Even after dodging rain a few times we still had a great time and made even better memories. ♥️


Captain Chris was amazing! He was great with the kids. He also found critters, and used his Biology knowledge to teach us all about them! It was an absolute blast. We will be going again


We had a great time on our boat ride with Captain Chris! He was not only entertaining but educational also. One of our daughters was a little nervous about snorkeling and he was both patient and encouraging with her. Our teenage son loved it! We loved Captain Chris’ critter corner where he taught us all about different sea creatures. I would highly recommend Flippin Awesome Adventures to everyone, you won’t be disappointed!


Not only was Capt Chris engaging, entertaining, and educational, he was also very considerate! Not thinking things thru on my end, walking in on a torn calf muscle, Capt Chris was very gentlemanly and was more than willing to accommodate and assist in helping me on and off the boat. I couldn’t recommend a better tour with a phenomenal experience!


Captain Chris is awesome. We had a group of 5 and everyone said this was the highlight of their trip. He was so knowledgeable and friendly. We saw a lot of dolphins, a turtle and many different kind of marine life that he took the time to talk to us about and let us hold. Definitely will be a repeat customer.
