Things to Do on Your Boat Rental

  • No summer trip is complete without boating to Shell Island. Boat to this naturally preserved island nestled between the Gulf and St. Andrews Bay and spend your time sunbathing, wildlife watching, beachcombing, kayaking, swimming, and shelling. 

  • Set out for an epic fishing adventure on your boat rental. Fish the estuaries of St. Andrews Bay for trout, mackerel, cobia, and flounder. Fish the Gulf for trophy fish like yellowfin tuna, swordfish, or mahi mahi.

  • Explore the water around St. Andrews State Park and snorkel at the rocky jetty, searching for angelfish, redfish, sheepshead, octopus, and dolphins. Boat to St. Andrews Marina and depart your boat for some biking, birding, fishing, hiking, paddling, diving, and surfing at the park. 

  • Observe wildlife like bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles, and birds during your boating adventures.
