What a fun experience we had with Dr Joe! My children and I learned so much about all the little creatures that inhabit the beach and it was a peaceful way to start our morning at Tybee. Dr Joe was kind and incredibly knowledgeable, and his passion for marine wildlife is infectious. I definitely recommend this experience to families!

I think this may have been my favorite part of the whole vacation. Dr. Joe was so friendly and patient with all the children (and parents). You can tell he really loves what he is doing. He is retired professor. There were all ages on this trip. My teen is interested in ecology/ environmental science as a major and loved this trip. There were also families with young children and they really seemed to love all they were learning. It is very hands on for everyone. This is a must do while in Tybee!

this was a great experience for our family. both of our kids (10 and 8) had a great time digging up and finding all the different tide pool creatures and getting to see all the things hiding in the sand during low tide. Dr Joe and Sadi (his assistant that day, sorry if I misspelled) were great with all the kids in the group and the adults had a great time too. The 2 hours flew by and got to see lots of neat creatures. Would recommend to any family visiting in the area. thanks!

Dr. Joe met us on the North Beach of Tybee island and had our 14 girls (ages 10-12) spotting signs of ghost shrimp, exploring tidal pools, saving sea stars, and catching sea animals for our temporarily live tank. Many families came over to see the animals we had caught and couldn't believe how cool this was. Dr. Joe (a retired professor) was an excellent teacher and very relatable. I would definitely recommend for all ages!
