Seaworld Orlando - details / Tabs



Capt. Anderson’s Marina, a fixture of Panama City Beach since 1957, is one of the largest privately owned marine recreational complexes in the world, located on the Historic Grand Lagoon within minutes of scenic St. Andrews Bay and the bountiful fishing waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Owned by two pioneer families who have a seafaring history spanning hundreds of years, the marina is open year-round and currently operated by Capt. Kenneth Anderson and his family. The facility offers a full range of fishing choices from 5 large & affordable Deep Sea Head/Party boats for bottom fishing, to over 25 Private Charter Boats for custom built offshore adventures including Sport Fishing& Trolling; to 4 Dive & Snorkel boats for spear fishing and sightseeing. There is also the Capt. Anderson III, an iconic double decker sightseeing boat offering the Seafari Eco-Tour w/Shell Island & Dolphin Encounter and the Sunset Dolphin Encounter; and the newest boat in the fleet, the Shell Island Express Ferry, the most convenient and least expensive way to enjoy spending the day at Shell Island. The combined marina fleet has a daily carrying capacity well in excess of 2,000 persons, and the sprawling parking lot accommodates 800 vehicles so there is plenty of free parking and room for buses. Also conveniently located at the marina are 2 large Waterfront Restaurants, a Nautical Gift Shop, a Fish Market where you can purchase fresh seafood or have your own fresh catch cleaned & packed for travel, and a local Farmers Market in the parking lot every weekend! The Marina provides great family fun for all ages - Come down to walk the docks and WATCH THE FLEET COME IN!
