With a natural deep-water harbor and easy access to three rivers, Carrabelle is a salty attraction to sailors, kayakers and boaters of all ages. A renowned golf resort nearby makes this the perfect outdoor getaway.

onsidered the Gateway to the Gulf for its easy access to offshore fishing and boating, Carrabelle is a naturalist’s paradise.

Fishing and Boating

People come to Carrabelle not only for fabulous fishing but also to sail, snorkel, scuba dive, scallop, play on the beaches or to just steal away from the real world for a while. Wildlife is plenti-

ful here in Carrabelle. It is not unusual to spot a deer, fox, blue heron, pelican or even a family of black bears at play. If luck is really with you, you may be entertained by local dolphins when walking the beach or riding in a boat while visiting Carrabelle. Here you can truly unwind and enjoy the beauty of our white-sand beaches and river marshes while you take in the sound of softly lapping waves and the rustle of palms swaying in the gentle breezes.
