When real sportsmen come to the Emerald Coast, they come to Lighthouse Marina, the Man Cave of Panama City and Grand Lagoon. While much of Panama City caters to the family tourist trade, Lighthouse Marina takes saltwater fishermen and their boats seriously. The Marina is the easiest-access fueling station on the coast, offering fuel-and-go service to fishermen and other deep sea sportsmen. The docks are home to the Sea Dragon Pirate Cruise and a host of other charter boat captains which keeps them bustling with activity year-round.
Lighthouse Marina Services
Lighthouse Marina offers dry storage, wet slip and boatyard services for boat owners at reasonable rates. The marina boasts the easiest fuel access of any station on the coast, and services boats of all sizes. The staff prides itself on fast, friendly, knowledgeable service to all customers. They like to fish, too, so they know how important it is to get back out on the water as quickly as you can.
Sea Dragon Pirate Cruise
The Sea Dragon takes off from Lighthouse Marina at least once daily throughout the season for two-hour-long pirate cruises. The 85-foot pirate ship offers swashbuckling fun for kids and adults alike. Sea Dragon Pirate Cruises are among the top attractions in Panama City.
Lighthouse Marina Photos
Lighthouse Marina is where memories are made. Whether you’re cataloguing your trophy catch or capturing a shot of the kids swabbing the decks, Smiles Beach Photo is there to capture those memories so you can share them with loved ones back home. We also specialize in boat photography and beach photographs, family portraits and senior portraits on the beach, on the dock or on board your boat.
Our professional photographers are on the beach at Lighthouse Marina every day from March 31 to October 31. Just look for the photographer wearing the bright shorts with the bold “PHOTO” logo printed on them. If you don’t see one of our photographers, you can schedule a sitting by signing up on the signup sheet at a nearby beach stand, or call us to schedule a booking. There’s never a sitting fee, whether or not you have an appointment. You only pay for the photo products you decide to buy.
