|Savannah Coastal EcoTours offers the
opportunity to experience Savannah area marshes, tidal rivers
and barrier islands in a personal manner shared by very
few individuals. You and your group are the
ONLY ones on tour.
We offer day trips to:
- Ossabaw Island (overnight trips
can also be arranged on Ossabaw)
- 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.
