Cape San Blas and Oil

OK. We are darn close to booking property at Cape San Blas for mid June. Should we hold off or look elsewhere because of this oil spill? Very nervous.

We will arrive on Cape San Blas 07/10. We have decided that we will either have our usual wonderful experience there, or witness history as it happens. Fortunately, the models seem to indicate an oil-free experience so far. Here are some really helpful links for oil location info:

We are planning to be at the Cape mid July but I, too, was concerned about the oil. All reports from the Cape indicate that things still look good there. But the economy is suffering badly due to the perception that the oil has landed. My family and I have vacationed at Cape San Blas for the last 20 years and the people there have always been wonderful....we can't let them down now....count on us being there and spending our money! Can't wait!

We are here now, and having a great time! No oil, but the water has been a bit brackish as the current was coming up from Indian pass. Howevere, It is much clearer now with continuing rough surf. Winds are about 10 mph directly from the West. The Scallops are delicious!

Just got back from Cape San Blas and saw no signs of oil. THe beach was beautiful, the weather was perfect, and the seafood was delicious.

Don't hesitate to go down there, the people need your business, and they have a lot to offer!

Cape San Blas beaches are not only still clean and beautiful but they haven't had a single tar ball! Because of the "news", many folks are over crowding the beaches on the East coast of FL, GA and SC!

If you're looking for beautiful, clean, uncrowded beaches....Cape San Blas is STILL the place!

NO OIL on these beaches and it's not even CLOSE!

Thank you all for your wonderful posts and reports. We are vacation and part-time home owners on the Cape. It is paradise! Thank goodness the oil didn't reach us. Please don't abandon us or the rest of the gulf coast during this crisis. The local businesses need your support and patronage now more than ever.
