The perfect time to visit the gulf coast of Florida is mid-August to mid-March when the weather is perfect. Time slows down and long weekends are in order. There is something for everyone.

In Gulf County Florida adventure is just off the beaten path and there’s no better guide than a local. A favorite activity for anyone visiting is scuba diving with Captain Bobby’s Break A Way Charters (http://www.visitgulf.com/listing/break-a-way-charters). You will be surprised at the crystal clear water and beautiful dive spots that Adventure Guide and charter captain Bobby Guliford has been diving with his son since he was 12 years old. Whether you want to go scallop hunting in St. Joseph Bay or a family dive at about 30 feet, you will be able to find a fresh adventure just underneath the water’s surface.
