Apalachee Bay is located in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico occupying an indentation of the Florida coast to the west of where the Florida peninsula joins the United States mainland. It is bordered by Taylor, Jefferson, Wakulla, and Franklin counties. It is named for the Apalachee tribe which lived between the Aucilla and Ochlockonee rivers until the 18th century.
The coastal communities of Apalachee Bay include St. Marks, Shell Point, Panacea, Lanark Village, Alligator Point, Carrabelle, Apalachicola, St. George Island and Eastpoint. This region, also known as the “Forgotten Coast”, offers an authentic taste of the Florida's Gulf Coast. These southern towns feature a strong maritime culture, an eclectic group of locally owned shops and galleries, and restaurants which serve fresh locally caught seafood. You’ll also find miles of uncrowded pristine beaches, an endless supply of shallow bays and waterways, excellent fishing, and exceptional waterfowl hunting. Combine all this with some of the finest oysters and seafood in the country and your stay with Williamson Outfitters is sure to be perfect!🦆🎣
