Forgotten Coast Wildlife Adventure

Discover the waters surrounding Port Saint Joe, Mexico Beach, St. Joseph Bay, and Cape San Blas!

Scalloping allowed on these tours during scallop season, August 16th - September 24th! Discover some of the most secluded snorkeling sites and beaches in Florida! Half day adventures departing from Port St. Joe, Florida. This is about an hour east of Panama City Beach.

Florida’s “Forgotten Coast” is an area about an hour east of Panama City Beach, Florida, that stretches from Mexico Beach to Apalachicola. This area consists of very quaint small “Old Florida” towns and secluded waterways that are rich in marine wildlife.

The Forgotten Coast has some of the healthiest sea grasses in the state of Florida. 80% of the marine wildlife in Florida depends on these grasses for survival. St. Joseph Bay is one of the healthiest bay system in Florida. This area is magical for snorkeling!

On our tours departing from Port St. Joe, we explore St. Joseph Bay, Cape San Blas, and St. Joseph Peninsula. We will, of course, search for wild Bottlenose Dolphins. When we find dolphins in St. Joseph Bay, they are usually completely undisturbed by human activity. Dolphins in St. Joseph Bay are wild animals that have a very large range and cannot be predictable. Dolphin’s are very common to see here, but are not guaranteed.

If you are nature lover, this is a must do tour for you! It is not uncommon to see wildlife such as sharks, turtles, rays, invertebrates such as starfish, and many different seabird species.

We explore secluded beaches and snorkeling sites that are only easily accessible by boat. We are often the only people around for miles!

This is the ultimate tour for nature lovers and people looking to get away from the crowds for a day!

While in the Port St. Joe and Mexico Beach area, spend the rest of the day or evening exploring these quaint old Florida towns. Enjoy the serene quiet nature beaches or ride a horse on the beach! Explore some great small locally owned eateries and shops. Captain Lorraine, the owner, runs all of the Forgotten Coast Adventures.  As a nature lover, this area is her absolute favorite place in North Florida. Make sure to ask Lorraine about other secret fun things to do in the area while you are in town.

There are no flashy tourist attractions here. If you are looking for go carts, mini golf, and arcades, Panama City Beach is going probably to be more your style. If you are vacationing in Panama City Beach, check out our Shell Island Dolphin And Snorkeling Tours.
