Booking a Seafari Reservation by Phone


To set up a reservation over the phone, please call (850) 358-1013.

After Booking by Phone


Once you call to book a tour, our staff will discuss a detailed weather plan with you. 


As a general rule, we always encourage guests to book towards the beginning of a vacation instead of at the end of a trip. This ensures that we have an opportunity to watch the forecast as tour dates approach. If we see that there is a better scheduling option based on the forecast, we will contact you to discuss rescheduling to avoid inclement weather.


We will then provide you with the following details:


  • What items we provide on site and what items you may bring with you
  • How we handle equipment sanitization
  • What to expect in terms of typical dolphin behavior throughout the adventure
  • What age groups each tour is appropriate for (and how we will accommodate each one)
  • What kinds of sea life and seashells you can expect to see or collect
  • How to plan for trips to the restroom during the tour
  • What is the best time of day to suit your family or group
  • The amount of time spent for each activity
  • Solutions for those who may become seasick
  • Recommendations for local attractions, restaurants, family activities, and more


As you can see, we not only prioritize your time with us at Dolphin Seafari, but we work diligently to ensure that you enjoy your time in Panama City Beach!

What’s Due at the Time of Booking a Dolphin Tour?

When you make your reservation with Panama City Dolphin Seafari Tours, we require a deposit to reserve your tour date and time. This deposit is applied towards the total cost of your trip, and you can expect to pay the remaining balance on the day of your adventure. This payment process allows different parties to pay separately or pay with cash before boarding the seafari boat. 

Will My Trip Be Cancelled Due to Weather?


If we have inclement weather on the day of your tour and rescheduling is not an option for your vacation timeline, our team will refund your deposit in full. If you decide to cancel prior to your tour, we kindly ask that you provide a 24-hour notice of your cancellation in order to receive a full refund of your deposit. Canceling on the day of your tour may result in the loss of your deposit.

What Information Do You Need for the Tour?


Once we have completed a reservation, guests will receive an email or text confirmation that contains the exact arrival location on the designated tour date. This message will also contain a recap of the details that have been previously discussed, including what guests may bring and what is provided by Dolphin Seafari. 


If you aren’t sure where to go or need help finding a tour location, please refer back to your booking agent’s personal cell number. We provide direct contact so that you do not feel lost, confused, or unsure about the details of your tour. Please use this resource in order to enjoy your trip to the fullest.
