For some, the best way to experience the Florida coast is on horseback. For others, it’s a few hours on the water. And that’s exactly what Sand ‘n Spur Snorkeling and Horseback Riding offer: a handful of experiences that get you out into the magic of the San Blas area.
San Blas beaches are among the most pristine in the area. They’re far enough off the popular vacationers’ paths that they’re generally uncrowded, unhurried, and true to the classic Florida spirit. And Sand N Spur does a great job of introducing visitors to the area in beautifully memorable ways.
Some of our favorite experiences include:
Sunset horseback riding on the beach: Sit back, relax, and enjoy the experience. Both experienced horsemen and complete newbies will be able to enjoy a leisurely ride along the waters of the gulf, especially during the cool evening breezes. A passionate and knowledgeable guide makes the hour-long tour a relaxing and enchanting experience.
Sightseeing & snorkeling boat tours: Explore the seagrass beds to find a huge abundance of sea life–from the scallops that Port Joe is known for, to sand dollars, horseshoe crabs, sand dollars, starfish, and countless varieties of fish and other sea life. High-quality snorkeling gear is included, and the captain hops in the water with you to help spot the most interesting finds.
Private scalloping charters: A four-hour scalloping adventure, during which you’ll harvest succulent St. Joe scallops by hand, guided by the experienced Captain Dan. This tour also includes snorkeling equipment and everything you’ll need to collect your own sea scallops to enjoy.
These aren’t the only experiences Sand N Spur offers, but they’re among the most popular; they also offer special charters catering to a group’s preferences and interests, so you can create the adventure that’s perfect for your family, work, or friend group. Outings are kid-friendly and fun for all ages, and the atmosphere and relatively untouched waters of St. Joe somehow manage to retain the same quintessentially Floridian personality and beauty as the Florida Keys–without the crowds.
– If you take a boat tour, ask Captain Dan to take you to his secret honey hole for an overabundance of sea life.
