5 of the Best St. George Island Family Activities

1. Have a Beach Day

Who doesn’t love a trip to the beach? Soak up the sun and sand with your family. 

St. George Island Adventures has everything you need to create your perfect beach day. Rent chairs, umbrellas, and more. Stop at the grocery store and stock up on snacks, lunch, and of course, plenty of water! Relax under your umbrella as the kids run in and out of the water, then build sandcastles together. Sometimes the simplest St. George family activities make the best memories!

2. Visit a Lighthouse 

When thinking of St. George Island family activities, look for something unique. One of our favorite things to do on the island is to visit some of the lighthouses on its coast. Kids will love visiting the Cape St. George Light. Climb to the top of the 200-year-old tower to see amazing views, then visit the adjoining museum to learn about its incredible history. Don’t forget to stop at the gift shop to pick up a souvenir! 

3. Go on a Fishing Trip 

The thrill you get as you reel in a fish is exciting for any member of the family. Get out on the open water with Island Charters! This charter service offers a variety of excursions that are customized to the needs of your family to make sure you’ll have the best experience possible. They’ll take you around to the best places to cast a line around the island and will provide you with everything you need for the trip. Choose the Fish & Fun Charter to get a little bit of everything; this tour includes fishing, dolphin watching, and shelling. 

4. Seek Some Thrills on a Jet Ski 

Looking for something out of the ordinary the whole family will enjoy? Rent some jet skis! Indulge in a little fun on your vacation as you ride the waves. Challenge your family members to a race as you speed around the Florida Gulf. Getting out on the water is the perfect way to see the island from another perspective. 

5. Attend a Family-Friendly Event

St. George Island hosts some of the best family-friendly events every year. Attend the Apalachicola Farmers Market and snag some great deals on the freshest fruits and veggies.
