We are here.  You should be too.

Located in the heart of the Florida Panhandle’s ‘Forgotten Coast’ Port St Joe is a place steeped in history, charm and unspoiled natural beauty. We are a hidden natural paradise -- home to fabulous inshore saltwater fishing in St. Joe Bay, freshwater fishing along the lower Apalachicola River system, the scallop capital of the South and America’s most beautiful sunsets.


The “Lady Di” is our brand-new pontoon boat.

She’s gorgeous.  25’ of fishing machine and tour boat . . . Designed for maximum comfort . . . Made for fishing and cruising … and perfect for swimming and sunbathing.  She’s a brand new 25’ Avalon Catalina quad fish Pontoon boat that will make your day on the bay or river better from the start.

From the minute you step aboard you will notice the difference — deck space, stability, comfortable fishing stations, easy access into and out of the water and plenty of shade.   Feel free to relax on the couch or enjoy God’s creation from one of the 4 high back captain’s chairs.  There are plenty of cup holders and dry space – This boat was built for inshore and river enjoyment and don’t worry, the 3’ of boat rail fencing surrounding the deck will keep everyone safe and sound on the water.

Her namesake was one of the great women of the South who had a special love for people and nature here in her native and beautiful Port St. Joe.

Can’t wait for you to see her. We are proud. Can you tell?
