Kayak Egan’s Creek at Fernandina Beach

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

    I would love to go but I'm kayak-less. Anyone looking for a tandem partner or has a kayak? I'm following Ken's advice and looking to buy one...

    I have a Kayak, but my car is not equipped to transport it. Does anyone have extra hauling capacity? I'm coming from Ponte Vedra. Otherwise is there a rental place nearby in Fernandina?

    Kayak Rentals: Kayaks will not be available for rent at the outing location. If you are interested in renting a kayak, please check with Amelia on the Water, Black Creek Outfitters, and First Coast Outfitters. Links to their sites are below. Please make sure they know you plan to travel with the kayak to this outing. I want to ensure you have every opportunity to attend this meetup even if you don't own a kayak.
