Trip deadline - Sept 1, 2023.
On Sept 13, three places have become available.
The islands of Georgia are worth taking the time to explore. They make excellent day trips when family and friends come to visit! The four islands are all very different and each, is quite fascinating
Day 1, we motor to St Mary's GA and catch a ferry to Cumberland Island, a National Seashore, where wild horses roam freely and ruins of the Carnegie Estate tell of a bygone era. It is a great place to photograph, observe wildlife and see dunes as high as the sky!
Two private guides, a naturalist and a historian, will join us. Both know the island well and are there to make the day meaningful as you leisurely explore the island. A box lunch will be provided. The trip requires you to be able to walk up to 3 miles during the 4 hours we are on Cumberland.
Back on the mainland, we will stop in St Mary's at a local favorite for dinner (on your own) where the food is good and price is reasonable
We overnight both nights on the ocean side of Jekyll Island. After breakfast on day 2, a trolley tour of Jekyll Historic District tells of Jekyll's gilded age when the island was the playground for America's richest and most powerful.
You can visit the Jekyll Island Club and the Sea Island Turtle Center before boarding the bus for Jekyll's Beach Village to shop and have lunch (on your own). The afternoon will be spent with a local guide on St Simons Island seeing the town; historic sites, Christ Church and Fort Frederica, and enjoying a lovely dinner(included).
After breakfast on Day 3, we motor to Meridian, GA and ferry to Sapelo Island where time stands still. Tour the unspoiled island in a school bus, learn about its history, experience the Geeche culture and enjoy a southern feast prepared by one of the best cooks this side of the Mississippi.
