About Grand Lagoon

The Grand Lagoon remains the epicenter of fun and vacation fishing on the Florida gulf coast. Along its shore you can find over 1,300 slips and dry storage racks that are home to the core of the region's recreational fleet. Charter boats run out of every marina. Party boats ply early morning seas on their way to nearby catches of snapper and grouper. But seafood isn't just the object of a sport, it's a gastronomic wonder. It should come as no surprise that the Grand Lagoon's growth as a center for recreational fishing was accompanied by a deserved reputation as the place to go for a seafood dinner.
