Big Sabine Bay is on the northern side of Santa Rosa Island in Santa Rosa Sound. The area is predominantly a salt marsh with shallow creeks to explore. The marshes and wetlands are a sanctuary for wildlife. In places like this, 80-90% of the seafood we enjoy live a portion of their lives in areas like this.
Overhead herons, gulls, osprey, bald eagles, and occasionally owls take the sky hunting their next meal. Underneath, you'll paddle with fiddler crabs, hermit crabs, gulf shrimp and more. Fish common to the area are flounder, mullet, redfish, sea horses, and occasionally sharks and sea turtles. Manatees have also been seen enjoying the grass beds in the area.
