Intergenerational Adventure on Three Coastal Islands: Sea Turtles, Lighthouses and Shrimp Trawl

Discover three islands — St. Simons, Jekyll, Sapelo — off Georgia’s Atlantic coast. Explore Fort Frederica and climb to the top of a lighthouse on St. Simons. With a scientist, hop aboard a shrimp boat to seine and examine ocean critters. A field trip to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll is a special highlight. Learn how they help stranded and injured turtles — creatures that haven’t changed since the dinosaurs. Then ferry over to a village on Sapelo where the Gullah people preserve an African heritage from before the Civil War. Learn about animals and plants in tidal marshes and along ocean beaches, day and night. There’s even time for a ghost walk by lantern. Swimming, too! No boredom. Each day is filled with discovery and fun.
