    We weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised to discover the beach at this park.

    It was clean and maintained, not crowded, nice pavilion covering, and just a beautiful slice of the island.

    We don't camp, but the campground would be a great destination for those who do.

    At the end of the main road in the Plantation (the gated section of St George Island). Parking is on the left for bikes and cars. Follow the path down to the beach. It's a good spot for swimming, wading, sunbathing, watching wildlife and some folks fish off the rocks bordering the cut. It's not usually crowded and is a quiet spot to relax.

    Some of the best fishing you'll experience is Pelican Reef off the island. You'll need a boat, rent or trailer your own. Flounder is abundant.

    Captain JC was great. He customized the trip so everyone had fun. We all caught fish and enjoyed the shelling. Will use again for sure.

    Great ride to Saint Vincent and little Saint George! Took a similar excursion last year around the same time (early June) and Captain Luis was able to find dolphin both times! They come so close to the boat! We got great pictures! Our family age range is 9-72 and we all loved it! Thanks Captain Luis and Captain Wes for a great half day on the water!

    My brother in law and I had scheduled a family trip so the kids could find nice sea shells and to see the beautiful sun set on the ocean. We called a week prior to the trip and added a little fishing package for the adults. We arrived on the island and while sitting on the beach Captain Krista called on Tuesday and informed us that bad weather was coming in and wanted to see if we could reschedule for that night. We changed Captains to Captain Skip. Let me tell you this man had a huge hand in making some beautiful memories for my family. The enthusiasm and knowledge of each individual fish caught. He took the time and explained about each fish to the kids. Captain Skip then seen that we were about to get caught between 2 storms. Making safety his first priority he explained we would call it a night and head back in. The water was pretty rough on the way back but with his years of experience on the water he went through it with with out any problems. Thank you all for looking out to reschedule the boat trip and think of our family's safety first and foremost. Semper Fidelis Captain Skip we will see ya next year.

    The house will beautiful and situated so close to the ocean. It is across the street but the walk is short and the view is perfect as there is no house in front of it.
    The pictures are accurate: the house is beautifully decorated and well equipped with lots of small appliances, handy cleaning supplies, and every kitchen tool imaginable.
    It also had beach towels, chairs and umbrellas. Lifesaver for packing space in our crowded car!
    We particularly enjoyed the porches, on one level a screened in porch with a table and chairs and a non-screened porch with adirondack chairs. On the middle level, off of the bedrooms, a porch swing, a hammock and several loungers. Beautiful views from both.
    Thanks so much for a great family vacation!

    Tony and I stopped at the Lighthouse and Museum to look around. It's a lovely little park near the waterfront and the center at the end of bridge.

    Great little historical lighthouse and the light keepers house is now the museum. The visitors center in the same park.

    This year I didn’t shop as much during our trip due to everything going on but did make a point to visit Island Dog! It’s always one of my favorite stores as they have different items than the other souvenir and gift shops and I usually find something to buy that I really enjoy. This year it has been hard to find a lounger chair (even back home) and I found one I love here! The staff is helpful and friendly. They are doing some construction on the exterior but still open. A must do on the island!

    Sam is great! We did a SUP lesson with her and she was so patient. We very much enjoyed our time on the bay. Also did beach yoga and it was fantastic for every skill level. Highly recommend.

    We had an incredible time on the sunset tour. We were blown away by all the wildlife we encountered and just how peaceful the bay was. Highlights included an alligator swimming by near the marina, countless dolphins playing in the wake behind the boat, a shark swimming on the surface of the bay and a beautiful sunset over the glass-like bay. We will definitely go out on the waters with Southern Salinity again our next time in the area!

    These guys have it all! We rented a golf cart, bikes and even a beach tent. It was so nice to have these extras for our beach vacation. The folks there are incredibly nice and helpful! Great service and great rentals.

    Our family of four had a great morning on the water with Captain Jack. Having grown up in the area, he is very knowledgeable about where to find the fish. After casting his net for the bait fish we were quickly on our way to catching our own fish. If the fish were not biting in one area, we didn't stay long and Captain Jack moved to another area. Captain Jack was very helpful with our various skill levels. Next time we go fishing in the area, I will call Captain Jack again. And, if you have a chance, ask Captain Jack if he has any of his honey for sale. We bought a jar and it is delicious!

    We went out with Captain Ross and we had the most amazing time! My husband and I are visiting Saint George Island. We have traveled a lot across the world and I must Captain Ross was one of the best experiences we have ever had. He was so concerned about us having a great time and made sure that everything was taken into consideration to ensure that we had a good time. To top it off we were exhausted after the trip and he drove us home thank you so much Captain Ross movie back and be sure to ask for you

    I don’t usually splurge when I go into a tourist’s shop, but the selection was so fabulous and the prices so reasonable I ended up spending $130 on caps hats and 2-for-1 hoodies for me and the fiancé. I’m glad this store with their friendly staff survived the pandemic and may they remain successful for years to come. I love this place!
