The Harbor is east of the Apalachicola estuary and is enclosed by the Alligator Point sand spit. The harbor is 4 miles long and 1 mile wide with an average low water depth of 4 ft.

The salinity levels allow for the successful clam harvesting industry within the harbor. The bay also contains shallow oyster bars, that contain good fishing areas.Alligator Point Taxpayers AssociationThe Alligator Point Taxpayers Association is a group of 5 officers and 10 board members that meets each month to discuss the issues and concerns facing Alligator Point home owners.Homes and DevelopmentAlligator Point contains condos near the marina, and has houses on the bayside and gulf side.
