Stunning, pristine waterways, white sand beaches, and moss-hung maritime forests are the hallmarks of Georgia's wild and lonely Barrier Islands. Our full day trips give you a satisfying taste of Georgia's coastal wilderness, meandering through the tidal marshes and exploring beaches accessible only by kayak. With guides well versed in the local and natural history of the area, you will come away with fascinating insight into the wilds of the Georgia coast.

Little Tybee Island
Little Tybee Island is a chain of inland hammocks and small barrier islands connected by a maze of tidal creeks. Largely deserted even in summer months, the area is accessible only by boat. A graphic example of dune formation and maritime forest evolution, Little Tybee has a progression of palm, juniper, bay, pine and live oak trees. It is inhabited by dolphin, raccoon, gray fox, mink, feral pig, deer and alligator. There are no permanent human dwellings. The island has several miles of beachfront, accessible from inland rivers flowing to the sea. Thus, you can beach camp without having to paddle through the surf zone. On the other hand, if you like surfing, Little Tybee offers some of the best on the Georgia coast. Wild, scenic and wonderful, it is a great place for forest camping in the winter months or beach camping in warmer times. Sea Kayak Georgia runs day trips and extended camping trips to Little Tybee.

Wassaw Island
National wildlife refuge open to the public during daylight hours. It has mature maritime forests and miles of deserted beach. Famous for the Bone Yard, a grove of live oaks taken by the sea, dead but still standing in the sand and exposed to the roots at low tide. Departure for Wassaw is from Priest Landing down the Wilmington River, timed to be with the tide both ways. All day trip for intermediate paddlers.

Ebenezer Creek
A blackwater river that flows so slowly you could paddle it in either direction. The trip runs for seven miles through a cypress forest straight out of Tolkien's Trilogy. Thousands of cypress knees reach up to meet the Spanish moss like stalactites and stalagmites in a watery cave. The single best word to describe this place ? "Enchanting."

Skidaway Narrows
The narrows has the best summertime osprey viewing area around. Protected waters lead to large hammocks and a Civil War gun embankment. Long route takes you past the Isle of Hope marina and a number of interesting sail boats.

Intermediate Full Day Trips
Join an intermediate full day trip and do some mileage to explore the area and take some of the lesser traveled cuts and backwater passages. We'll go down to the south end of Little Tybee for lunch and then paddle back through the ocean to one of the back river landings.

Put in some miles on the way out, practice some navigation skills and on the way back catch some surf and do some rough water practice.

Join us on the full and new moon tides that will be very high. At high tide we won't even have to stay in the channel we can paddle over the grass and take short cuts to go fast and far. This is an opportunity to do some paddling that we don't get to do until the lunar phases bring spring tides.
Prerequisite: intermediate paddlers with a reliable roll

Our sit on top line is the fun way to explore the salt marsh environment. For the more experienced paddler, we have both plastic and composite decked sea kayaks to choose from. We'll supply you with a kayak, and all the essential gear you need.
