About Us

Our Mission Statement

We will make every effort to exceed our guests expectations by providing a fun, entertaining and unique experience that will make lasting memories of their vacation on Panama City Beach.

Meet Donnie & Tracey

Donnie and Tracey Coker are the owners of Paradise Adventures Catamaran. We started operations in February of 2013. We got this fun and amazing idea almost 15 years ago when we got married in Jamaica and took a Catamaran Cruise during our Honeymoon. After spending 8 days in Jamaica, we both agreed that, aside from the actual ceremony, the Catamaran Cruise was the highlight of our stay. After many years of flirting with the idea, we decided that if we were ever going to take a GIANT leap of faith, it was time.
We have two wonderful kids, a 15 year old boy named Trey and a 12 year old girl named Charley. We have both lived in the Panama City Beach area for most of our lives. We have worked together in other industries for the past 10 years and are about as close as any one couple can be.

Our goal in starting this business was to have the most entertaining experience that would help create other families lifetime memories to share.  Our highly trained staff and crew are the very best around. They are always professional and friendly towards all of our guests. We are spoiled that we are able to come to work at the Marina every day and we hope that after College, our kids will be able to take over the business, so that we can travel and sail all over the world! We certainly love what we do and truly enjoy meeting new people every day. It makes all the hard work worth it when see our guests get off the boat tours with smiles and hugs for the staff!

The Vessels

We have two U.S.C.G. certified Catamarans in our fleet. Our largest Catamaran, called the “Privateer”, is a 52 foot and can carry up to 78 passengers for your comfort. Our smaller Catamaran is called the “Footloose”, that is a 40 foot and can take out up to 38 passengers. We offer the safest, memorable and exciting water excursions along the Gulf Coast. Paradise Adventures Catamaran is known as the most professional and best Catamaran experiences along the Gulf Coast! The “Privateer” and “Footloose” Catamarans offer large and spacious decks with plenty of seating, sunning nets, wind and rain coverage, shaded cockpits, attached slide off of the back of the boat (on the Privateer), fully stocked bar, and clean on board restrooms.
