The waterways of the Forgotten Coast of Florida are places where the mighty and historic Apalachicola River collides with the peaceful St. George Island State Park, the still wild St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge, and secluded Cape St. George Island State Reserve. You won’t forget that you’ve been to this place and will want to shout about it to others who are seeking unforgettable fishing, boating, and cruising.
Apalachicola & St. George Island is where so much of what lives in the sea starts its life and it is the beating heart of the local oyster and shrimping industries. Plant, and animal life thrives in the surrounding salt marshes of this designated estuary, where tidal changes are a constant. The barrier islands of St. George, Little St. George, St. Vincent and Dog Island make up this watershed provide a diverse bottom habitat made up of sand bars, mud flats, oyster bars and rock gardens. It is active as a breeding and migratory pass-through for many species of fish and is the central part of the culture to protect that which is enjoyed as a treasured recreational paradise for boaters and bird-watchers, alike.
