Take a long weekend and really immerse yourself into the island culture and experience everything this coastal paradise has to offer!

Day 1

Tybee Island Marine Science Center

Learn about the diverse ecosystem of Tybee while getting a closer look at some of the creatures that call its waters and beaches home. From beach walks, sand sifting and floating classrooms up the Savannah River, the Tybee Island Marine Science Center offers fun and learning for groups of all ages.

Spend Time on the Water

Kayaking, paddle boarding, jet skiing and fishing are just the ticket for groups. Explore Tybee’s beautiful waterways as fast or slow as your group wants. For those who want to take it slow and fish off Tybee’s beautiful pier, rod and reel rentals are available at Rip Tide Bait and Tackle, located on the pier.

Dinner with Gators

If your tour wants dinner with a side of Tybee eccentricity, take them to The Crab Shack for a huge seafood platter of shrimp, crawfish and crab legs with sausage, corn and potatoes. For a change of scenery after dinner go to the lagoon and feed the alligators that live in front of the restaurant, or visit the bird house to see a menagerie of exotic birds.

Day 2

Yoga on the Beach

Start off the second day of your group tour with a relaxing one-hour session of morning beachside yoga. Watching the waves come in while doing some gentle yoga will be the perfect way to begin the day touring the island.

Eco Tour and Lunch on Little Tybee

Wind through the waters of Tybee’s Back River and watch dolphins swimming, birds gliding and seagrass swaying in the wind. Enjoy a feast of Low Country Boil on Little Tybee Island, an uninhabited nature preserve. A relaxing eco-cruise is perfect for groups looking to savor the sights on Tybee.

Dinner at the Guard House

Enjoy a catered dinner of seafood and other delights from Gerald’s Pig and Shrimp at the historic Guard House. Built in 1906, the Guard House was once a part of Fort Screven but now serves as a community center for citizens of Tybee Island.

Day 3

Sightsee in Savannah

Tour Savannah by foot or trolley and discover all that historic Savannah has to offer. See the Forsyth Park Fountain, Telfair Museums, historic River Street, City Market, the Davenport House, or any number of the many historic landmarks in downtown Savannah. Afterwards, come back to Tybee to unwind by the beach.

Sunset Dinner

Enjoy dinner overlooking the expansive salt marsh and Back River at sunset. Choose from an array of delicious dishes to delight even the pickiest of eaters. Come casually. Tybee’s unpretentious atmosphere means that flip flops and windswept hair are not just welcomed, they are encouraged.

Island Entertainment

Wrap up the day and unwind by listening to live music, or singing it yourself and with others at karaoke. Several restaurants across the island provide live entertainment year round for guests to enjoy.
