    Shell Island is a good place; you can get up close and personal with the dolphins, and the beach is awesome.
    ...or you can turn right when you come out of the bay and cruise the 'hotel row'.

    If your in for a longer ride, you can cruise to Port St. Joe or up towards powell lake/destin.

    Its never a bad ride with white sand beaches and clear emerald waters.

    I'm just leaving today to go back home. Awesome place to ride. Me and the wife hooked up with a friend that lives out that way. He showed us some new spots. We rode from Shell Island into the Gulf along the beach to Port Saint Joe's and then a eat/fueled up at Dockside's on the water then jumped in to the Intercoastal waterway back to the Shell Island it's a 85-90 mile run. We launch at Hathaway bride off of 98. It a free back down on the right hand side puts you in bay about a 6 mile run from Shell Island. There's also a launch in St. Andrew State Park that puts you just about on top of Shell Island. Hope this helps you all. If I can help you anymore just shoot me a PM.
