BIRDING AT NORTH BEACH
Tybee’s North Beach is a popular destination for birders to view species such as the Northern Gannett, Purple Sandpiper, American Oyster Catcher, Black Skimmers, Red Knots and Black-Backed Gulls. Groups can sit back and relax while Tybee’s birds swoop and glide by.
EXPLORE AN UNINHABITED ISLAND
Many visitors to Tybee Island are unaware that just south of our bustling beach town lies an uninhabited nature preserve called Little Tybee Island. This hidden treasure is actually twice the size of Tybee Island and only accessible by boat. You can rent a boat or hop on a tour, and spend the afternoon exploring this island paradise.
SHELLING ON LITTLE TYBEE
For those in your group looking to collect natural, authentic mementos to take home, seashells from Little Tybee Island are the perfect answer. Shells on this uninhabited natural preserve can be quadruple the size of those on Tybee’s more populated beaches, making them great for decorating and happy memories of Tybee Island.
VISIT THE TYBEE ISLAND MARINE SCIENCE CENTER
Tybee’s ecosystem is vibrant and right at your fingertips, and the Tybee Island Marine Science Center is the perfect place to go for a closer look. The Center offers tanks filled with fish, turtles and crabs to view (and sometimes touch), as well as beach walks and eco tours for a more personal, hands-on experience. They also embark on floating classrooms that explore Tybee and Savannah’s creeks and rivers, which is perfect for groups looking to do something unique.
