Capt. Anderson‚Äôs Marina
Capt. Anderson‚Äôs Marina, owned and operated by two pioneer Bay County maritime families and the granddaddy of Panama City Beach Marinas. An estimated 1 million visitors per year, or practically everyone who partakes in the ‚Äúworld‚Äôs most beautiful beaches‚Äù, come to Capt. Anderson‚Äôs Marina for one reason or another. The Marina offer‚Äôs visitors of Panama City Beach a variety of recreational activities ranging from exciting deep sea fishing in the nearby Gulf of Mexico to sightseeing tours for shell island and dolphin encounters.
The Marina has 30 private charter boats, 4 dive boats and 5 large, ultra- modern, party fishing boats. For sightseeing tours we have the double-decker, glass bottom boat, the Capt. Anderson III that does narrated tours to Shell Island and romantic Dolphin encounters at sunset. The express ferry is a great option for someone who doesn‚Äôt want to be on a time limit at the island. The Shell Island Express Ferry zips out to Shell Island and drops you off. The Ferry runs hourly, so you could spend an hour or all day at the island.
