I've got my porcelain tile all set and I'm ready to grout. However, this is in the bathroom and I'd like to have some sort of seal between the tile floor and the drywall...to be covered by the baseboards so color does not matter.
I don't want to, nor do I think it would be correct, to fill the gap with grout.
Using a silicone or latex caulk (Like I'm going to use where the tub meets the tile), is my first choice but the gap is quite large in some places and not sure if this would be the best way to do it.
Again, what is the best product to seal the gap between drywall and a tile floor in a bathroom?

You have the right idea using a silicone based caulk. Since you don’t have to worry about painting it, any of the silicone based caulks will work just fine for you.
Now let’s talk about that big space. At The Home Depot, we carry a product called caulk saver. Here’s what it looks like:
As you can see it is made from a foam material. It comes in both a 5/8” and a 1/2” diameter and is 20 feet long. You will use this product first and then apply the caulk on top of it. This will save you both time and money.
