Osprey Charters Dolphin & Shell Island Tours
Captain Greg Burnett has a ton of fish tales and he likes to tell 'em!
The Panama City native operates Osprey Charters Dolphin & Shell Island Tours out of Pirates Cove Marina in Panama City Beach, which is convenient to Shell Island, St. Andrews Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. There's lots to do and lots to see and Captain Greg knows all the spots to observe dolphins, catch a mess of fish, snorkel off the jetty, or take a secluded walk along the pristine beaches of Shell Island.
Captain Greg is a friendly, easy-going dude who has grown up on the water; he has 30 years of experience navigating the Gulf and St. Andrews Bay. Capt. Greg knows how to treat passengers right and will tailor your trip depending on what you want to do.
Want a sunset cruise for your bachelorette party? No problem. Want to wet a hook and let your kiddo catch his first saltwater fishy? Captain Greg will make it happen. And of course, there's miles and miles of beaches for shelling!
If you ever get the chance, ask Capt. Greg to crank up Osprey I or II and take you fishing, or dolphin cruising, or snorkeling along shallow schooner wrecks and petrified stumps for sand dollars. Sea bird sightings the likes of herons, cormorants, pelicans, ospreys and seagulls are common both in the air and on the water.
Maybe you’ll get lucky like he did the time he saw a dolphin give birth and nuzzle her calf up to the surface of the water to take its first breath. Or the time he saw five Hammerhead Sharks sleuthing around St. Andrews Bay.
Aside from close-encounters with local wildlife, Captain Greg encourages folks to simply relax, and enjoy the ride. Find Captain Greg on the web. Make your reservation by calling (850) 814-8016. You can also follow Osprey Charters on Facebook and Instagram.
