Panama City | October-April

Reef Runner Sailing's home base is located on the emerald coast of Panama City, Florida. We operate vessels year round in this location.

All sunset sails, charters, and classes set sail from St. Andrews Marina.

The Emerald Coast

Panama City and Panama City Beach (rated America's #1 beach in 1995) are located on the Gulf of Mexico in the panhandle of Florida between Mobile, AL, to the west and Tallahassee, FL, to the east. Panama City is serviced by Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport and is accessible by several major highways easily linking this vacation paradise to the cities of the southeast, central, and western states.


Known for its mild climate and its beautiful sugar-white beaches, Panama City is a wonderful vacation destination. Surrounded by the protected water of St. Andrews Bay and the open water of the Gulf of Mexico, Panama City is ideal for learning to sail in different types of water and conditions. Plus, Panama City has some of the most spectacular emerald green waters you will find anywhere in the world!
