St. Joseph Bay is an outstanding place for new or experienced boaters alike since the waters are so calm! You may see a stingray, horseshoe crab, blue crab, starfish, redfish, mullet, live shells, or schools of baitfish.

In the deeper channels around Black’s Island, you frequently see the bottle-nosed dolphin or sea turtles. If you are bringing your own boat – St. Joseph Peninsula State Park has a boat ramp and it’s right outside the gates to Barrier Dunes! There is overflow boat parking in Barrier Dunes.
