Tour and Ferry at Sapelo Island
Saturday, June 15th at 7:00 am we will meet at Hardees on Merrill Road (off 295).
We will take a ferry boat to Sapelo Island in Meridian, Georgia near Cumberland Island. The cost of the Ferry is $15.00. The fee for the ferry also includes a bus tour of the Island which is approximately 3 hours. After the Island tour, we will hike the trails at the visitors center and grab some lunch. There are many historical sites on the Island.
Sapelo Island is the site of the first believed European settlement in the 1500's. It is the site to several mansions, one being the Reynolds mansion, home to tobacco tycoon R.J.Reynolds. It is still home to the Gullah who were African slave descendants. Most of the island is a wildlife refuge and used for marine and eco system research.
To make reservations please call[masked]-3224. You must do the bus tour on island in order to get on the ferry. The reservations are all done individually so we are not listed under a specific name.
