How To Get to Cape San Blas
Go one mile past Port St. Joe, U.S. 98 forks to the right, CR 30A.
U.S. 98 will take you to Apalachicola, or fork to the right along C-30A to Cape San Blas and Indian Pass.
Drive approximately 9 miles and the Cape San Blas Road (CR 30E) will turn right. Continue about 3 miles on CR 30A and the Indian Pass Road will also turn to the right.
Directly opposite Indian Pass Road is Indian Pass Raw Bar.
If you turn right at the Raw Bar, you will come to the end of “the pass” where you will see St. Vincent’s Island across a narrow stretch of water.
If you take CR 30E you will drive out onto the St. Joseph Peninsula and eventually reach the State Park entrance.
