Car: Necessary

Shell Point is a small, quiet community located in Wakulla County, one of Florida's best-kept secrets and part of Florida's forgotten coast. Besides offering the best flats fishing anywhere, it's ideal for sightseeing and photography. It is located between St. Marks and Panacea, and is only 30 miles south of Tallahassee (Florida's capital). Tallahassee has all of the conveniences of a big city - malls, restaurants, museums, parks, airport - and is well known for being the home of Florida State University (FSU) and Florida A&M University (FAMU).

OTHER ACTIVITIES:

For the fisherman, the fishing is as good as it gets and there is an assortment of USCG licensed captains that will be more than willing to book and take you out into the bay for a fishing experience that you will never forget. We have year round charter fishing, with different species at different times. Trout and red fish and can be caught all year long. Tarpon are here from June till August, and cobia show up in the early spring as the water warms and stay until fall. The flats also hold Spanish Mackerel, blue fish, sheepshead, flounder and ladyfish. Or you can head out to deeper waters for grouper and snapper.

For the sailor, Shell Point is a great place for windsurfing and sailing and hosts several Regattas each year.

BIRD WATCHING/PHOTOGRAPHY

Numerous Birding opportunities await, at nearby Wakulla Springs State Park , St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, St. George Island, St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park, and Bald Point State Park which are all part of the Great Florida Birding Trail.

BEACHES:

For the beach enthusiast, nearby beaches include St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park and St. George's Island, which are regularly voted into the top ten beaches in the world (an hour to an hour and a half drive). Shell Point Beach is about 1/4 mi. from "The Seagull". It is a very, very small beach located on the bay, which means that the only waves that you will see will be on a very windy day. It doesn't compare to the other two beaches mentioned earlier, but it is very convenient and a great place to relax and enjoy the abundant wildlife in and surrounding the bay, along with breathtaking sunsets.

WAKULLA SPRINGS STATE PARK, (10 miles away) is one of the largest fresh water springs in the world. Wakulla Springs was the site for filming the early Tarzan movies, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Airport 77. From the river boat and glass bottom boat tours, you can see alligators, manatees, many species of water fowl, fish, turtles, snakes, and deer, in and around the crystal clear waters emerging from the depth of the springs. They also have a swimming area, with a diving platform. Kids love it and you will, too. The water stays at about 70 degrees all year round. It's very refreshing in the heat of the summertime. Downstream from the springs, canoes and kayaks can be rented on the Wakulla River.

ST MARK'S NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE is a 15 minute drive. Visit the St. Mark's Lighthouse and snap some photos of the wildlife within this refuge.
