Boating on the Forgotten Coast
Franklin County is a boater’s heaven with hundreds of miles of freshwater creeks, sloughs and rivers that empty into nutrient-rich bays and out to the Gulf of Mexico.
Getting out on the water is the easy part here – Franklin County, Florida features more than 40 boat ramps and primitive paddling launches stretching from Alligator Point to Apalachicola. Bring your boat and tie up at one of the area’s 10 commercial marinas. Some can even accommodate you and your boat.
No boat? No problem! You can rent a boat from boat rental operations or charter a trip from one of the many experienced guides in the area.
