“Gulf County is special”, says Adventure Guide and owner of Daly’s Watersports, Ann Marie Daly. “There are so many watersports that are available to you – we are not just about scalloping – you can do something different every day.”

No matter If you’re on Cape San Blas or on Windmark Beach or out in the middle of St. Joseph Bay, there are unobstructed views of the Gulf sunset. Nothing blocks the sky so it feels and looks huge.
“Everyone is pleasantly surprised at how clear St. Joseph Bay is,” says Captain Gary. “We aren’t at the base of any river. It’s a saltwater Bay. Very little run off. Lots of cool, saltwater critters. The same creatures that are out in the Gulf are in our Bay.
“Seahorses are so interesting”, says Captain Gary, former owner of Seahorse Safaris. The completely orange ones or complete albinos are the odd guys that are fun. One year I may find a lot of seahorses or none.
Captain Gary Hites - Have you ever caught a shark? “We book for a company called Fish’N Xpress. They do a great 3-hour shark-fishing trip,” says former Seahorse Water Safari owner, Gary Hites.
Well, I just took a sunset cruise out and saw 12 dolphins. The night before we saw 24. They feed at night so dusk is the best time to catch them. We have a tidal current that goes out of the Intracoastal and the dolphin like to follow that.
