Capture the sunrise
Set your alarm to watch a spectacular sunrise from any of our eastern beaches. Grab a beach blanket and a cup of joe from Sunrise Restaurant then head down to the shoreline with your camera in hand. Be sure to check the local weather for exact sunrise times as they change daily.
Learn Something New
From comedy improv to painting, the Tybee Arts Association offers a variety of classes for those looking to explore their creative side. You may just discover a new talent you never knew you had! Check their website for class offerings and times. If learning a new adventure calls your name, try your hand at surfing by taking a class with Tybee Surf Lessons!
Spot Dolphins on a Water Adventure
Spend the afternoon making new friends on the water at Captain Derek’s Dolphin Adventure Tours or Captain Mike’s Dolphin Tours. Each tour starts off with a brief history of the harbor then it’s off to a top-secret location where you’re guaranteed to spot these amazing creatures in their natural habitat. Want to make it even more memorable? Guests are welcome to bring their own refreshments onboard – so pack a picnic!
Donate your time
If voluntourism is on your annual resolution list, you can donate your skills and your time on Tybee. Participate in a beach or marsh clean-up initiative to help our island stay beautiful and pristine. Volunteers can sign up at the Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers website.
Explore Little Tybee Island
Pack some shrimp po’ boys from Gerald’s Pig and Shrimp, rent a boat from Bull River Marina or a kayak from Sea Kayak Georgia and make your way to Little Tybee Island for an afternoon of fun. Located just a short distance from Tybee Island, this uninhabited nature preserve is only accessible by water and is surprisingly larger than our mainland. From camping to shell collecting, there are plenty of ways to spend the afternoon on this secluded island getaway.
Enjoy an authentic low country boil
Nothing says welcome to The South like an authentic Low Country Boil. Fresh seafood paired perfectly with boiled potatoes, corn and sausage are served daily at The Crab Shack – a quirky waterfront dinery where guests eat under the sparkle of twinkle lights.
Toast the Sunset
A vacation in paradise is not complete without a toast to the memories made. Coco’s Sunset Grille understands that every day should be celebrated and they do so with a daily toast to the evening’s sunset over the marsh harbor. Take part in this special toast to experience what the locals call the best way to end a day on Tybee Island.
