The Gulf Coast activities
With more courses per capita than anywhere else in the world, Florida's Gulf Coast is a golfing heaven. It boasts courses designed by such famous names as Arnold Palmer, Robert Trent-Jones and Jack Nicklaus. There's a course to suit all, whether you prefer water hazards, fast or undulating greens, bunker hazards or clear open courses. The icing on the cake for golfers playing a round here is seeing the nature and wildlife of the region in its natural habitat.
Deep Sea Fishing
The warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico mean that the fishing opportunities along the Gulf Coast are excellent all year round. Keen anglers can charter their own boats or join excursions run from most towns and resorts along the coast. The type of fish caught can vary according to conditions and season, but as a guide Grouper, Shark and Tarpon can be found.
