We got married at Redfish Pass in 2001. Hey if it was good enough for Flipper, it was good enough for us. No, not good enough, spectacular!

Best place to dig your toes in the sand and check out the ospreys, herons, sand crabs, shells and sunset.

Beautiful area. Lots of wildlife! A must do while you are near! Great spot to do some shelling. walk the beach and don't be afraid to climb through the uprooted trees and shrubs to do it! You'll find all sorts of treasures!

We stayed at South Seas Resort and every morning we walked out to Redfish Pass. It was very beautiful and quite peaceful, a beautiful way to start the day. Also found some beautiful shells at Redfish pass.

Reviewing a natural feature seems odd. This is the pass that we take to the Gulf every other weekend or so.

We rented a boat at Jensen's Marina on several occasions and went fishiing in Red Fish pass. There is was a dolphin there that put on quite a show. He would come up to the boat every time my husband caught a fish and wait for him to toss it over the side. It was a wonderful experience.
