The Tupelo and Cypress trees standing guard in the middle of the Dead Lakes will transport you back to a prehistoric time. As the fog rolls off the water and you see stumps rising out of the swamp, you may actually wonder if you are in a different world. Take a guided tour through the south flats and see osprey, eagles and alligators through the maze of trees. The mystery of the Dead Lakes will hold you captive.
Big, expansive and life affirming. The Gulf has many faces. The warm emerald waters are friendly and filled with shells and fish and laughter. Wake up at dawn and take a walk with turtle patrol or perfect the pancake of your cast net. Paddleboard. Knock something off your bucket list. The Gulf will make it easy.
Floating along the Indian Pass Lagoon will just make you proud to be southern, even if you’re not. The sun turns the marsh grasses a golden yellow and the oyster flats stretch out as far as the eye can see. The soil and waters are rich and feed the lazy dolphins and pelicans that soar by. Long docks dot the shore. Fish, kayak or hunt for an oyster or two. It will be an afternoon well spent.
Everything is connected in Gulf County. Take a sail up the Canal or take a fishing charter into Lake Wimico. The freshwater fishing here is more protected from the weather and the trees will keep you cool. Try your hand at bass fishing or cruise along past old bridges and watch the charming house boats float. There are so many depots, creeks and rivers, you can spend hours exploring before you find your perfect spot.
Shhh. Don’t tell anyone. St. Joseph Bay is the hidden Gulf County gem. Ask any local and we will tell you that a day spent on the Bay is one full of adventure. Kayaking, snorkeling, taking a sunset cruise with one of our adventure guides, new things are around every bend. The clear salt waters are filled with beautiful grass flats, fish and dolphins. Come play in our aquarium.
