Panacea is located on the coast in Wakulla County between the St Marks National Wildlife Refuge and the bays that lead to the Gulf of Mexico. Panacea was founded around local mineral springs and evolved into a commercial seafood town with fishing, crabbing, and shrimping.
Boat access to the bays and the Gulf are provided with public boat ramps on Dickerson Bay from Rock Landing, Bottoms Road, and Levy Bay.
Fishing is outstanding on oyster bars, grass beds, rivers, tidal creeks and in the open Gulf of Mexico. Trout, red fish, flounder, triple tail, tarpon, black drum, mackerel, grouper, snapper, and amberjack can all be accessed from the local boat ramps and marinas.
After a day of outdoor activities enjoy a great meal at one of the local restaurants like Posey’s or Seineyard or Panacea Pizza.
You can also visit the Gulf Specimen Marine Laboratory in Panacea and walk to public docks to watch the day’s catch unloaded at the Rock Landing Marina where the Seineyard Restaurant is also located.
