About Tybee Beach Ecology Trips
Tybee Beach Ecology Trips, conducted on Tybee Island, Georgia, by marine biologist Dr. Joe Richardson, are fun and educational experiences for all ages. Typical two-hour beach trips include: high and low tide beachcombing, exploring tide pools and sandy intertidal habitats, pulling a 50 foot beach net, and learning information about the animals you find. Trips are scheduled for families and small groups, scout groups, schools, adult tours, and other groups. Much more than just a beach trip!

Dr. Joe is excellent at keeping everyone engaged while showing you things you never knew were there. He was genuinely excited to talk about everything the group found and we learned so much about life on the beach that's easily overlooked. This isn't just for kids, adults will

Thanks very much. I'll often say "You never know what you'll see on Tybee's beach!" and your alls trip was a perfect example. I had a great time out there with you all. Thanks again for being willing to take a chance on the weather, and then for being a fun and enthusiastic group out on the beach. You all did really well.

This is our first trip to Tybee, and I took a chance on Dr. Joe! He is a very patient and knowledgable guide who came prepared with different shovels and gadgets. Even my 14-year-old was enthralled and stepped up to help with the net fishing! It is a flexible tour, so we could
