Overview

Experience the unspoiled, isolated beauty of the Georgia Coast aboard a shrimp boat converted to be a kayak mothership! Let us take you to places that few people can access - there is room for 6 participants to sleep, eat, and shower on board. We do trips from 3 hours to 2 weeks - fishing, birding, beach combing, kayaking, exploring. Our licensed, safe, and fun crew will take care of everything!

Best-ever kayaking, shell-finding, and photographing at the "boneyards." Best-ever meals: Fresh-caught fish tacos, Low Country Boil, Shrimp...More
