The best way to fully experience the Cape is to dip your toes (or more) into the water–or, even better, hop on a boat to take in the crystal-clear waters from offshore. Seahorse Water Safaris has everything you need to make that happen, whether you want to rent snorkel gear or a pontoon boat. They offer guided tours and charters for groups of any size, as well as boat and equipment rentals. Avid kayakers, SUPs, and boaters will love the rental selections, while those who want to hop on a guided tour will love the pre-scheduled options.
Port St. Joe and Cape San Blas are remarkably undiscovered–and unmarred by the tourist industry, making them a beautiful destination when you want to avoid crowds. Fewer tourists also mean the white sand dunes and the waters themselves are relatively untouched; you’ll enjoy a huge abundance of aquatic life on a snorkeling or kayaking tour in the area.
For families with a wide variety of ages along for the ride, a snorkeling tour through Seahorse Water Safaris is a great option; the oldest and youngest can enjoy the view and the shade on the deck, while those on the market for an adventure can hop in the warm waters to experience sea life up close. A guided tour will introduce you to much of that marine life, and guests of all ages will leave the tour more knowledgeable about the marine life and the geography of the area than when they set out.
For those who want to take the reins into their own hands, boat or gear rentals might be the best bet. Snorkelers can rent gear from the store and walk into the water to some fabulous snorkeling locations. Boaters can also rent kayaks and catamarans that hold up to 20 people. The boats aren’t the newest or the most pristine, so don’t expect perfection, but you’ll find all gear clean and well-maintained. If you’re renting a boat, you’ll also enjoy a discount on other rentals like snorkel and fishing gear. Just keep in mind that boaters will need to pass a free online boating safety test before boarding.
Seahorse Water Safaris is located in the Port St. Joe Marina in the town of Port St. Joe. After your adventure, you’ll find an abundance of local shops and restaurants–perfect places to enjoy a drink or dinner and a reprieve from the sea and sun after a few hours (or more) on the water.
– All rental boats are pet-friendly, so furry friends are welcome to come on board for the ride.
