One of the best kept secrets about Florida’s Forgotten Coast is just how much there is to see and do on the water. Just across the Bay from Apalachicola are two uninhabited islands, Little St. George and St, Vincent where you can go shelling, swimming, hiking, and birding.
One of the nicest trips is to tour the Apalachicola waterfront from Scipio Creek down the river, under the bridge and out Two Mile Channel. Time your trip to include sunset, and you’ll have pictures to treasure of our Old Florida working waterfront.
If wildlife is your thing, consider an estuary tour. From the mouth of the Apalachicola River in Apalachicola to the Woodruff Dam at the Georgia border, you will find 106 miles of uninterrupted natural beauty. Along that stretch you will also find hundreds of creeks and sloughs, many winding through the forest canopy. Here you will encounter Florida primeval, with abundant wildlife.
I’ve lived, worked, and played on these waters all my life, and know them like the back of my hand. Let me share the wonders of our area with you and your family.
