Sailing on St. Simons Island
There’s no experience quite like flying across the water, sails snapping in the wind as you cruise the coastal waters in a sailboat rented for the day. (Sunset charters have all the aforementioned, plus the added benefit of dropping anchor and pausing to watch the fiery performance of the sun setting into crystal blue waters!) Never sailed before? Sign up for lessons with licensed captains and begin learning all there is to know about your new obsession. Barry’s Beach Service has the most rental options, renting everything from beach chairs to sailboats to paddleboards and kayaks and they offer lessons for everything they rent out. Prefer a motorized mode of transportation? Check out Morningstar Marinas and speed away in one of their powerful Hurricane Deck Boats (all of which stay in the river systems)
