Catching blue crab or fish off the dock for dinner. We'll show you how. Lagoon access for kayaking, nature viewing, oystering. Sharing that meal of mullet you just netted up with your new friends. St Vincent Island, Apalachicola, Cape San Blas, Port St. Joe and Panama City are near by.
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We sailed into this area in 1992 from our home in the Caribbean. After years in the hospitality business, and marine woodworking, we were ready to find a home in the Florida Panhandle that would make us want to give up the cruising life. When we first visited Indian Pass, we knew we had found that special place.
Why the Owner Chose Port Saint Joe, FL, USA:
We had the opportunity to buy this property from our dear neighbor, Bertha. It would make a perfect addition to our very special Retreat.We want to share this jewel of a place with others seeking a quiet, friendly, beach community.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are on site owners, and available for any assistance you might need. Our dock is a great place to get blue crabs for dinner, or to catch that redfish. Oystering in the area is also a lot of fun. We are a short walk to the beach, and centrally located to all that this incredible area has to offer. Most of our guests have arrived as strangers, and become good friends that return year after year. We look forward to those shared experiences each year, memorialized over shrimp and crab boils at our home on the Lagoon.
