Egan’s Creek is located on the north end of Amelia Island. Our four-mile paddle centers on the creek and the marsh area between Atlantic Avenue and the Amelia River, known as an estuary, which provide high levels of nutrients for all resident flora and fauna.
This creek also gives paddlers great views of the Amelia Island Lighthouse and the tree line of Fort Clinch State Park - all in all a recipe for an awesome paddle!
The outing will meet at the Leaders and Sinkers Bait Shop parking lot (1620 North 14th Street, Fernandina Beach). From Jacksonville take I-95 North to Exit 373 (Fernandina Beach/Callahan) and turn right towards Fernandina Beach. Travel east on A1A 12.2 miles and turn right on Sadler Rd. Turn left in just 1/10th a mile onto South 14th Street. The destination will be on your right in 3.7 miles (this road becomes North 14th Street). Look for the Sierra Club Meetup sign!
For your safety, you must bring and wear a personal flotation device and a whistle. There is no fee for this outing. I suggest bringing a hat, sunglasses, bug spray and plenty of water. Here is a link to the map location of meeting location: http://tinyurl.com/kbj7nqz
