My husband and I decided on our last day of a three day weekend getaway (to Grayton Beach State Park in Santa Rosa, and Sunset Inn at PCB) to make the most of our time and spend another day kayaking. St. Andrews was our spot of choice and it was just perfect. We took a tour of the park before heading to the boat ramp and decided we would definitely like to come back for a camping trip here. There are so many spots and great amenities - you just couldn't help but want to!
We kayaked out onto Grand Lagoon and then over to Shell Island. The shuttle wasn't running that day, so we had the beach all to ourselves and found loads of shells and sanddollars. Jackpot! It was a nice trip and was finished off with a grand adventure through The Pass out onto the Gulf. We've never taken our kayaks out onto the ocean but the Pass was a perfect way to avoid breaking waves.
We came out behind the jetties on the east side of St. Andrew's and then mosied on over to Gator Lake where we didn't see any gators but then on our way out, in the lake across the street from Gator Lake, we spotted not only one but TWO gators which we'd been looking for our whole time in Florida!
Overall - worth the $5 entry fee and definitely a place we'd come back to!
