The Best Cruises in St. Simons
The age old tradition of getting on a large ship, eating too much food, and floating from destination to destination is alive and well in St. Simons Island…cruising is America’s past time and our island does it best! You can cruise the Florida Coast, go shrimping on the Lady Jane, sunset cruises, dolphin cruises…if you can think it, you can find it on or around our beautiful island! Learn more about these and other cruises in St. Simons below.
One of the more unusual cruises available to visiting vacationers is a two hour shrimping cruise aboard the Lady Jane, a retired shrimping vessel that voyages the waters of St. Simons Sound. Help out the crew as they sort their catch or just relax and enjoy the view from the covered deck…sometimes the best part of a vacation is just watching other people work, don’t you think? (Passengers aged 2 and under are free when space is available!) Available year round, the shrimp cruise departs Wednesday, and Saturday from February 22-May 31st; Wednesday, Saturday, & Sunday from June 1st-August 31st; Wednesday, and Saturday from September 2nd-October 14th; and Saturdays only October 15th-December 31st with a departure time of 4pm.
The 90 minute Sunset Cruise on the inland and marshland waters is one of our favorite St. Simons Island attractions. Watch dolphins playing gleefully in the surf, view the shrimpers working hard at their trade, and prepare to be amazed at the beauty of a Georgia coastal sunset. Share a glass of wine from the bottle you brought (these sunset cruises are BYOB, after all!) with your life’s partner as you view the ever changing show of shimmering oranges and fiery reds that fill the sky as the golden globe sinks slowly into the sea. Departing nightly Tuesday through Sundays at 6:00 pm, the St. Simons Island Sunset Cruises offered by Lighthouse Trolleys and Boat Tours are a spectacular choice to end a day of sun and sand!
If you’re seeking a more typical cruise adventure, American Cruise Lines offers an 8 day/7 night cruise of the historic south…including visits to the Golden Isles. This cruise departs from Charleston, SC or Jacksonville, FL, but if you have a thirst for learning all there is to learn about the historic culture of the Deep South, this cruise might be the one for you. Offering Civil War Theme Cruises, American Cruise lines promises you an adventure you won’t soon forget!
