Top 4 Things To Do With Kids on St. George Island

1. Go On a Fishing Trip

Fishing is a great bonding activity for you and your kids. Get some fishing gear from Island Outfitters and head to St. George Island State Park for exceptional fishing. Island Outfitters also offer guided excursions to the best fishing spots on St George Island and Apalachicola Bay.

2. Go Kayaking

One of our highly recommended St. George Island things to do with kids is kayaking. Pack some drinks and snacks with the kids and rent kayaks and stand-up paddle boards using your $250 VayK Gear credit. 

3. Have a Fun Time on the Beach

St George Island has all you need to have a fun time at any of the beach sides. Go with your family to the beach, set up, and soak in the sun. So, stock up on some snacks, rent some chairs and relax under your umbrella as the kids have fun in the sand building sandcastles. 

Here are a few tips for while you’re out on St. George Island beaches:

  • Wear sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun
  • Be on the lookout for marine life like jellyfish and stingrays in the ocean.
  • Watch out for turtle nests.
  • Always be prepared for rain. On first sight of lightning or immediately hearing thunder, get off the beach as soon as possible.

4. Visit a Lighthouse

This is another unique activity you and your kids can enjoy together. Leave your vacation rental early in the morning for a day dedicated to sightseeing. Take some stunning photos of some of the lighthouses on the coast. Cape St. George Lighthouse is a must-visit site built in 1833 but reconstructed in 2008. You can climb the tower for amazing views and visit the Keeper’s House Museum for a detailed lighthouse history. Don’t forget to get some souvenirs from the gift shop!
