Spring means sand, surf and sun on Tybee Island. In fact, there’s so much fun to have you may have to narrow down your list of favorite activities. We’ll help out with that.
Be sure to get your line in the water on a fishing excursion. Spring is a great time to book a trip with a charter company like Amick’s Deep Sea Fishing or Reel Em ’N. What better way to spend a day than on the waters off Tybee Island with a big fish on your hook?
And speaking of getting out on the water, another must-do activity is dolphin sightings. Sometimes you can catch a glimpse from the beach but take a dolphin tour with Capt. Mike or Capt. Derek to see these magnificent creatures up close.
