  • Captain Fran LapollaWassaw Island
  • Photography in the marshes, rivers and barrier islands
  • Natural history tours in the waterways and the islands
  • Kayaking marsh and blackwater creeks

Day Trip travel is by open skiff rated for 14 people, but group size is limited to 6. The vessel is piloted by Captain Fran Lapolla, USCG Master, Small Boat Operations, Skidaway Institute of Oceanography and former UGA marine educator and captain of UGA’s RV Sea Dawg.

Kayaks and gear are provided and led by experienced kayaker and ACA Certified Instructor Kathryn Lapolla.

Your excursion normally begins from the beautiful Isle of Hope Marina, 50 Bluff Drive Savannah, GA 31406, but arrangements may possibly be made for pick-up at other docks.
