Cape San Blas Fishing & Boating

Cape San Blas is home to some of the best boating & fishing in the U.S.

Visitors can rent a power boat and explore the vast expanse of the bay, from the tip of Cape San Blas to its base. You’re very apt to encounter a pod of dolphins or school of rays when you're out on a boat.

And talk about convenience, pontoon boats can be hired at Scallop Cove adjacent to our Cape offices as well as Presnell’s Marina at Simmons Bayou. If it's water gear that you're interested in, like kayaks, stand up paddleboards, boogie boards, and the like, head on over to our Beach Activities page for rental info. 

Last but not least, you'll find fantastic fishing opportunities throughout Cape San Blas and the bounteous waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The fishing is great year-round, so check out our Seasonal Fishing Guide to see what you can catch during your trip to the Forgotten Coast!
