Kayaking on Jekyll Island – Tidelands Nature Center

Kayaking on the Jekyll Island Beach
Kayaking Tours

Tideland Nature Center provides guided kayaking tours of the local marshes. Tours depart from the Jekyll boat ramp, which is located on the west side of the island near the nature center.  Prior to departure, the tour guides fit participants with life jackets. They also provide basic information about how to use a kayak.  On a recent trip they made a stop at Shark Tooth Beach, but other groups choose to spend more time paddling through the salt water marsh.  Jekyll Sandpiper renters will have the chance to see such shore birds as the pelican or egret.  You might view thousands of fiddler crabs or see dolphins swimming nearby.
