Unleash Your Inner Pirate on the Sea Dragon Pirate Cruise in Panama City Beach

Vacationing with young children is hardly easy! Everywhere they go, parents must search for activities that are child-friendly – and hopefully ones they won’t mind as well.

There are many things to do in Panama Beach for families, and the Sea Dragon pirate cruise is certainly one of them!

What better way to explore the high seas than in true pirate fashion near our Panama City Beach condos?


The “Sea Dragon” Pirate Cruise is locally owned and operated by Capt. “Fearless” Phil and his family, who are locals to Panama City and have extensive experience at sea. The business operates on the principle of giving visitors value for their hard-earned money through wholesome sightseeing adventure. Captain “Fearless” Phil has experience as a scuba diving instructor, First Aid/CPR instructor, and lifeguard, and he loves working with kids!

This cruise will take you back in time to the carefree days of pirates. For two hours cruise, there will be dolphin sightings, great music, and non-stop pirate activities for kids. Beers, sodas, snacks, t-shirts, and pirate souvenirs are available for purchase on deck as well. Parents can relax, as attentive crew members will ensure children are always safe.

What to Expect

Are your kids musical? If so, they will love the pirate sing-along soundtrack! Music is fun, upbeat, and synced to the activities happening on deck. By the end of the tour, the whole family will by humming pirate songs!

Pirate activities for the kids include sword fighting, swabbing the deck, firing the “kid cannon,” reading a treasure map, finding sunken treasure, and sharing the loot. In addition, there is a water gun fight, face painting, and a pirate dance party with pirate tattoos for kids. If parents are looking for a little down time, this is the perfect way to keep your kids entertained while you relax with a cold beer on deck! 

For the duration of the cruise, the boat will not venture more than a half mile from shore. There’s simply more to see closer to land. While sightings are not guaranteed, Captain “Fearless” Phil will do all he can to ensure an encounter with wild dolphins. He knows the local dolphin habitats and all the best places to find them, so there is usually at least one sighting!

In the event of a rainstorm, there is plenty of room inside for activities to continue. No matter the weather in Panama City Beach, the pirates cannot be stopped!
