1. Dress for comfort. Bring sunscreen, a camera, sunglasses and wear soft light colored sole shoes. 2. Avoid rich food and excessive alcohol the night before. Eat a light breakfast and if taking motion sickness medication please follow directions. 3. Bring an ample supply of eats and drinks. It is customary to bring eats and drinks for your captain and crew. 4. Please respect the boat and equipment. Your captain and crew have a lot of pride in their vessels and equipment can be costly to you if damaged or lost overboard. 5. Deckhands work hard for you and have pride in your catch. Their day starts several hours before your trip and extends hours after you are gone. We recommend a 15% to 20% tip over and above a fish cleaning fee. 6. Make sure you choose a trip that suits you. Our fleet offers 4 hour trips all the way up to 3 day trips. Your Captain can assist you in choosing the appropriate trip to meet your needs. 7. Always inquire about payment method, cancellation and bad weather policies.

Keep up with current beach and surf conditions by checking the updated flag postings on www.GulfCoastNewsToday.com

Vacationing at the Beach Frequently Asked Questions 1) Tents (no larger than a 10x10 ft.) are allowed on the beach, but they have to be placed behind (North of) the designated sign marker post and should be removed before night. Tents cannot be placed between the sign post and the Gulf of Mexico. This is for designated emergency and safety access. 2) Pets are not allowed on the beach on the Gulf of Mexico or surrounding islands (Robinson, Bird, Walker). However they are allowed at the designated city Dog Park on Canal Rd. (Hwy 180) next to Sportsman Marina. All dogs should remain on a leash within the city limits. 3) Glass in any form (bottle, cup, container, etc.) is strictly prohibited on our beaches and islands. 4) All trails and parks are free and open from daylight to dusk 7 days a week. 5) Fires or flames are strictly prohibited on the beach. This includes grills, tiki-torches, lanterns, open fire pits, candles, fireworks, etc. 6) Jet skis, boats, and any other motorized vessels, are prohibited from launching along the gulf front beaches.

Dining When it comes to good eats, the Gulf Coast is a prime location for amazing, one-of-a-kind foods. While Southern cuisine may still reign supreme, you can find nationally-renowned chefs that specialize in numerous varieties and styles of cookery that can placate any palate. Be sure to try out any of our local seafood places; since the Gulf is right at our door, fresh ingredients are just a fishin’ pole or a cast net away.
