Saint Simons Waterways

There’s a saying about the Georgia coastal islands that goes something like this: “There’s lots of trails on the Georgia coast – it’s just that most of them all all wet.”
What that means is that there are so many places you can get to, like when you are staying with us on St Simons Island, that are worth going to that you have to get in a boat to get there.? This is actually a very good thing because when you get to where you are going, Little Saint Simons Island for example, you’ll find that it is much more pristine and natural than it would be if you could get there in a car.

There are great kayak services if you don’t bring your own boat or you aren’t riding a ferry, also.
