Our ECO Tours are classrooms on the water providing a fun experience combined with ecological education. Our boats are located at Jekyll Island Georgia, we are fully insured and all of our boats are US Coast Guard Certified Passenger Vessels. Our boats are the classroom and much more fun than school!
$400 per tour for 75 minutes with a 35 total passenger maximum
We give the name of each species caught, give a brief description of the fish, animal or plant and then
the students are given an opportunity to touch and feel before the catch is returned to the water
Trawl nets are placed in the water and pulled along the bottom with the boat. Then after a brief instruction, the group becomes participants in the experience by pulling the trawl net into the boat. A bounty of species is generally pulled up with the net and placed into containers. Our staff will give a complete presentation of the species caught, and then an opportunity is given to the group to personally examine the catch before carefully returning it to the water
Sightseeing and Private Boat Tours
Groups are taken out into the coastal marshlands and rivers where it’s calm and safe.
During the tour our crew will discuss different topics on ecology and
environmental issues that impact the coastal estuary.
We have conducted our ECO tours for thousands of students from school groups, the Jekyll Island 4H Center and Driftwood Learning Center for over 13 years
