St. Vincent Wildlife Refuge

St. Vincent Wildlife Refuge offers visitors many activities, such as kayaking, fishing, hiking and biking. Pack a picnic and enjoy St. Vincent’s pristine view of the Gulf of Mexico. Combine it with some photography, birding, or fishing and you have a perfect day.

St. Vincent Island is 9 miles southwest of Apalachicola and is only accessible by boat and there is no visitor center, no potable water, nor public phones on the island. The closest public boat ramp to the island is located 22 miles west of Apalachicola at the end of County Road 30-B. From that boat ramp it is one-quarter of a mile across to the island. Boaters should be sensitive to winds, tide fluctuations, currents, storms, and oyster bars. Visitor use is only during daylight hours however the refuge is closed for general use during hunts, fires, and storms. Bring insect repellent, drinking water, sunscreen, and a hat.  There is a St. Vincent shuttle, call (850) 229-1065 for more information or to reserve your place.
