Savannah ’s Most Popular Water Experiences

Savannah, Georgia, is an 18th-century Southern city that offers beautiful historic homes and trees draped in Spanish moss. The city features a historical waterfront commercial district on the Savannah River. Beautiful Tybee Island and the surrounding tidal waterways provide residents and visitors with an aquatic playground just a few miles away.

Small Boat Excursion
Small boat cruising gets you up close and personal with the local waterways and wildlife. You’ll enjoy some much-deserved downtime while exploring the beautiful tidal creeks and marshes. Keep a sharp lookout for Atlantic bottlenose dolphins.

Book a boat rental from Wilmington Island, and hop aboard with a couple of family members or friends. Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, and snacks. You’ll see why the Georgia Lowcountry is a favorite with residents and visitors alike.

Little Tybee Island Ecotour
Nature lovers of all ages will enjoy a private tour of Little Tybee Island’s delights. This 6,500-acre Natural Heritage Preserve is located on a pristine barrier island just a short boat ride from Tybee Island. Small boat and kayak tours are available.

Once on the island, you’ll likely spot nesting bald eagles and numerous other seabirds. Depending on the tour length, you’ll have plenty of time to explore the tidal creeks and comb the shell-laden beaches.

Dolphin pods often cruise the area looking for good-sized schools of fish. These opportunistic mammals work together to herd the fish into a compressed feeding area when they find one.

Fishing, Fishing, and More Fishing
The Savannah area is filled with fishing opportunities. The area’s many tidal waterways are ideal for inshore fishing. A boat rental with a local captain will give you insider tips on finding those crafty Lowcountry fish.

Fly fishing is also popular here, so bring your specialty fishing gear. To increase your odds of success, hire an experienced fly fishing guide. Several Tybee island fishing captains will happily take you out to battle with the big fish if you prefer offshore fishing. Regardless of your catch, Atlantic Ocean fishing is an experience not to be missed.

Savannah's Best Bodies of Water for Boating

Savannah River

The expansive Savannah River divides Georgia and South Carolina. After meandering for many miles, the Savannah becomes a marine estuary before merging with the Atlantic Ocean around scenic Tybee Island.

The Savannah River is also a major shipping channel, and Savannah Harbor is a primary oceangoing seaport. Recreational vessels also share these well-traveled waters. Water skiers, wakeboarders, and windsurfers enjoy the Savannah River during warmer weather.

Wilmington River

The 17.3-mile Wilmington River is a tidal river that meanders past eastern Savannah. The Wilmington River also runs through nearby Thunderbolt, Georgia. Once the Wilmington River exits the Savannah area, it flows between several scenic islands.

Thunderbolt, Georgia, is a popular destination for Intracoastal Waterway travelers. Powerboaters and sailors can enjoy dockage at several convenient marinas.

Atlantic Ocean

About 15 miles east of Savannah is slow-paced Tybee Island, adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean. In settled weather, visitors can enjoy a personal watercraft or even a hydrofoil waterskiing boat rental.

Tybee Island is also a jumping-off point for offshore fishing excursions. Captains with beefy fishing boats happily take visitors out to deep-sea fishing grounds. Afterward, fishing fans will likely have good “fish stories” to tell family and friends.
