The East Bay River (also called the East River[1]) in Florida is a 15-mile-long (24 km)[2] river located in Santa Rosa[3] and Okaloosa counties. It flows from east to west, forming near Hurlburt Field, and empties into the eastern portion of Pensacola Bay near the towns Holley and Navarre. The river forms part of the southern boundary of Eglin Air Force Base.

There is one public boat launch ramp located on the river, along State Road 87 in Holley, near the outlet into Pensacola Bay.[4]
