Outdoor Access

Fishing

Offshore Fishing: For offshore fishing, you can launch from the St. George Island Marina. You’ll typically head out into the Gulf of Mexico to find reefs and wrecks, which are prime spots for species like red snapper, grouper, and amberjack. Charter companies often have their preferred fishing spots.

Inshore Fishing: The Apalachicola Bay offers excellent inshore fishing opportunities. Target species like speckled trout, redfish, and flounder in the bay’s shallow waters, oyster bars, and grass flats. The waters around East Hole and Cat Point are popular areas.

Scalloping

Head to St. Joseph Bay, located a short drive from St. George Island. The grass beds here are ideal for scallop hunting. Popular areas include Eagle Harbor and the vicinity around Black’s Island.

Hiking and Biking Trails

St. George Island State Park: This park offers a variety of trails, including:

  • Gap Point Trail: A 2.5-mile loop trail with beautiful Gulf views.
  • Bay Beach Overlook Trail: A 1.3-mile trail leading to an observation platform.
  • Palm Lake Overlook Trail: A 1-mile trail with an overlook of Palm Lake.
  • Apalachicola National Forest: While not on St. George Island itself, it’s nearby.

Biking

Hickory Landing Trail: A 6.6-mile loop trail.

Tate’s Hell State Forest Trail: Offers a network of hiking and biking trails.

Paddle Trails

Apalachicola River Paddling Trail: Explore the Apalachicola River, starting from the Owl Creek Boat Ramp. Paddle options vary in length, but you can enjoy a scenic day trip along the river.

St. George Island Paddling Trail: This trail offers paddlers a chance to explore the island’s coastal waters. The Apalachicola Bay Paddling Trail, part of this system, provides access to calm and picturesque bay waters.

Apalachicola Bay Aquatic Preserve: This vast area is perfect for kayaking. You can paddle around the bay’s islands and estuaries, enjoying the diverse coastal ecosystem.

Waterfowl Hunting

Staying on St. George Island presents an exceptional opportunity for coastal duck hunting enthusiasts. The Apalachee Bay region, located nearby, is renowned for hosting a significant population of diving ducks during the winter months. This area in North Florida is particularly celebrated for its redheads, which are considered one of the best in the country. Apart from redheads, the bay also features abundant populations of other diver duck species, such as bluebills and buffleheads. Duck hunters can also encounter occasional appearances of canvasbacks, pintails, teal, scoters, wigeons, gadwalls, mergansers, wood ducks, ring-necked ducks, spoonbills, ruddy ducks, and goldeneyes. Coastal duck hunting from St. George Island also provides a quieter and more secluded hunting environment compared to other regions. While diver ducks often come with lower bag limits compared to puddle ducks, the Gulf Coast’s less crowded conditions make it an appealing destination for waterfowl hunters. The tranquil setting, coupled with the opportunity to pursue divers in open water, offers a unique and fulfilling experience for hunters looking to escape the hustle and bustle and immerse themselves in the natural beauty of Florida’s Gulf Coast.
