There’s no better place than Florida to embrace the great outdoors. With warm weather for most of the year, miles upon miles of coastline, and endless opportunities for fishing, hunting, and camping, it’s an outdoor lover’s mecca. However, trying to plan outdoor excursions without the proper equipment and clothing can quickly turn what should have been a fun and relaxing day into a nightmare. That’s where Bluewater Outriggers comes in. 

Conveniently located on Highway 98 in Port St. Joe, near the Cape San Blas lighthouse and Lighthouse Park, this is a must-stop shopping opportunity for anyone looking to gear up for hunting, fishing, or even a day at the beach. 

Upon entering the store, you might feel like you’re still outside. The shop is decorated with taxidermied animals, replicas of fish and sharks, fish tanks, and outdoor landscapes. Between all of this eye-catching décor, it is absolutely loaded with a huge variety of fishing gear, hunting and trapping tools, clothing, swimsuits, shoes, and even some mugs, magnets, and souvenirs. 

Fishing carts, fishing reels, fishing rods, lures, baits, lines, hooks, weights, and other fishing accessories and tools can turn even a novice into a fully equipped fisherman in no time. For boaters, they offer a diverse selection of electronics and navigation devices, marine electrical accessories, boat outfitting equipment, trailer hitches, tie-downs, straps, and cables. 

Avid hunters can stop in for hunting knives, hunting and gun accessories, game cameras, tree stands, hunting clothing, and archery broadheads, arrows, quivers, and bow cases. If you’re planning a camping trip, either with a tent or an RV, Bluewater Outriggers can set you up with everything from two-way radios to outdoor showerheads, to a variety of hoses, and so much more. 

Additionally, they offer clothing for women, men, and children, pool toys and floats, coffee mugs, games, and pet toys and accessories. 

We’ll admit, the store can feel overwhelming for newbies or the uninitiated (like us.) Fortunately, it’s staffed with friendly, knowledgeable salespeople who are more than happy to help. Simply tell them what you’re aiming to do, and what price range you’d like to stay within, and they’ll direct you to what you need to make your outdoor excursion a success. 

Once you’ve got what you need, don’t be afraid to browse the store to look at the fun décor, and don’t be surprised if you find a few more must-have items along the way. If you visit Bluewater Outriggers, we’d love to know what items you fell in love with!
