Your Florida Outdoor Adventure Revelation
Find your next Florida adventure where the Gulf of Mexico joins a vibrant natural landscape.
Whether kayaker, angler, off-roader or hunter, choose from a wide array of adventures throughout Nature’s Place to Play.
Bring your kayak to compare the experience of paddling the north-flowing Withlacoochee River with that of the nearby crystalline Weeki Wachee River. Then, be among the first to explore the sawgrass marshes of our newly-mapped Bayport-Linda Pedersen Paddling Trail along the Gulf coast.
Book a charter and land catches like red fish, grouper, cobia, Spanish mackerel and tarpon. And, don’t miss summer scalloping fun from late June to late September. As the southern border of Florida’s Bay Scallop harvest range, the clear Adventure Coast serves up prime waters for grabbing your share of these tasty favorites.
Explore miles of trails in the sprawling Croom tract of Florida’s third-largest state forest, the Withlacoochee, named one of the “10 Coolest Places You’ve Never Been in North America.” Power through 2,600 acres of sand pits, hills, groomed and rough terrain on your ATV or dirt bike at the Croom Motorcycle Area. Or, choose instead to find your way through the Croom Tract on marked off-road bike and hiking trails. Look for wildlife such as white piebald (ghost) deer, bald eagles, gopher tortoises and more.
For hunters, find many opportunities to bag Osceola turkey, deer, wild hogs and waterfowl in various Adventure Coast Wildlife Management Areas. There are seasons and spaces for use of general gun, archery and muzzleloaders.
From boats and bikes to ATVs, bring your gear and stay awhile. Prefer to travel light? Choose among expert outfitters who take care of everything for you. Your next outdoor adventure awaits right here on Florida’s Adventure Coast.
