The water is beautiful at Bob Sikes Cut. It is nice for families that have some people in the family that like to fish and some that like to swim and sunbathe. The best of both worlds!

What a beautiful area to watch nature! There are always dolphins, fish, crabs, and birds. It's simply an excellent area to go and observe wildlife. It's an easy walk up the beach to the cut. Though you should carry shoes with you because there are some areas with lots of seashells that will hurt you feet if you walk on... More

My reviews are usually very positive, but I have to get off my nice box for this post. In the past we had stayed in Plantation so I thought access to the cut was available to everyone not just those who could afford to rent/live in the gated community. This time, since we were only on the island for a... More

What a neat area to see! We visited while we were staying at a rental home in the Plantation. Hunting seashells on the beach was awesome - the kids loved it!

I have been coming to St. George Island for a couple of winters, stay on the Plantation so I can get to the cut. First year casted frozen shrimp out into the cut. Lost a few rigs on the rocks but ended up catching a couple of nice Reds, big fish, lots of fight and tasty. Past couple of years... More

While true that you need Plantation access to reach her by car/foot, if you can get there - it's a rather interesting place. There's a small carpark, followed by a nice public footpath that takes you out to the Gulf coast near the cut, then a short walk to the cut itself. The beach and rocks are quite lovely. We... More

We have sea kayaks and worked our way along the shore on a calm water day. If windy, this might not have been as much fun. Boat traffic through the Cut varies withe the time of day, but not a problem. No way to reach this area by automobile, but there are ways around the gate. check with the locals... More

Pretty neat manmade cut at the end of St. George Island. Do need plantation access to get to the cut. Lots of rocks for climbing and wide beach at end of island. Watch the boats come in.

I agree with others that it is TOTALLY WRONG that this feature which was created with public funds has been isolated from that public. It is a great fishing spot, but you can't get there except by boat. I have read documentation that the Plantation developers were allowed by Franklin County to close off the end of the Island ONLY...

I heard this was a good area to fish. When we tried to drive there we were turned away at the gates of the Plantation! How ridiculous that everyone who visits SGI is not permitted to go here!
