Fishing along Jekyll Island, Cumberland Island and St. Simons Island is great year round. Thousands of acres of salt marsh flats, miles of rivers and creeks, warm ocean waters, and an abundance of shrimp and baitfish make these waters some of the most productive fishing grounds anywhere.

Nearshore and inshore fishing are all available. Speckled Sea Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Whiting, Triple Tail, Shark and Tarpon are a few of the species that visit local waters.

All trips are private charters, only your group or family onboard. Six-person maximum. Children are welcome. Most of our clients are novice anglers that appreciate the courteous, one on one, instructional treatment they receive. Bait, tackle, fishing license and ice are provided. Trips depart Jekyll Harbor Marina daily.

We also offer Dolphin and sight seeing cruises.Cruise the bays, waterways and tidal creeks surrounding Jekyll Island. Experience our native Dolphins up close, frolicking in the surf.

Enjoy the natural beauty of the Golden Isles. View never ending expanses of salt marsh flats, dotted with Wood Storks, Blue Herons and White Egrets.

Watch Ospreys soaring overhead and Pelicans diving for a meal. See nesting Sea Turtles and Cumberland Island wild horses left behind by the conquistadors centuries ago.

One and a half and 3 hour tours available, or ask about a special tour of your own design.
