Deer Island offers unique privacy, outstanding outdoor recreation, and a tropical paradise
experience all on your personal, exclusive island located just minutes off Cedar Key along
Floridas beautiful Gulf Coast!
The island features an exceptional sugar white sandy beach along the entire west coastline. The
interior rises to an elevation of 14 feet and is densely forested with large oaks, pines, cedars,
and palms with an understory of coonties, wild coffee, palmettos and more - perfect for Floridas
native wildlife habitats.
Approximately one acre on the south end of the island near the dock has been cleared for a
camp (except for the trees). A narrow unimproved road (a glorified trail) runs north and south
along the spine of the island.
The island is located inside the Big Bend Aquatic Seagrass Preserve and adjoins the Lower
Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge. The historic fishing villages of Cedar Key and Suwannee are
eight miles south and north of the island, respectively.
Gainesville, home of the University of Florida, is 50 miles to the east.
Access is by boat or helicopter, with deep water access on the northeast corner of island. The
existing dock is on the southeast corner in shallower water.
This private island is rich with native bird species. Use this unique property for a family get-away,
recreational sports, camping, hiking, birding, and more!
Given its location among several protected lands and refuges, there is a potential to sell as a
conservation easement. Other income opportunities include leasing the property to boaters,
campers, or to organize fishing trips!
