This Thrilling Tour Will Show You a New Side of Tybee Island
Skim coastal waterways and see a new side of Tybee Island with the area’s only airboat tour! Part historic tour, part wildlife expedition and part thrill ride, Tybee Airboats offers a variety of daily tours perfect for the entire family.
With room for 16 passengers, Tybee Airboats is a great option for large tours, big families or friend groups. Pretty impressive, considering that the airboats flit across the water’s surface at 45 mph!
For those with a tight itinerary, the Cockspur Loop is ideal. This 25-minute trip follows the south channel of the Savannah River to historic Fort Pulaski, then loops back for an up-close view of the historic Cockspur Island Lighthouse and a distant view of the dreamy Tybee Island Lighthouse.
Want more nature? You’ll love the hour-long Back River tour. Glimpse coastal seabirds, dolphins and scenic marshlands along the calmest section of Tybee Island. Sunsets are stunning on the Back River, so don’t forget to ask about a late evening excursion!
For a day you’ll never forget, spend the afternoon on Little Tybee Island. The uninhabited island, accessible only by boat, kayak or jet ski, is the perfect place for a picnic, a nature walk or a shell hunt.
Because airboats can glide on mere inches of water, you’re sure to see some of the Lowcountry’s lesser-known areas.
