About Island Adventures

The Island Adventure Team works diligently to provide access to portions of the Golden Isles you might never see. How about taking a voyage on a working shrimp boat – and having great seafood while you are on board! Visit nearby historical islands and plantations. Explore Cumberland, Sapelo and Little St. Simons Islands. Tour a couple of the Golden Isles largest employers such as the Port of Brunswick or the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center or take a day trip to the Okefenokee Swamp to see nature up close. Contact Island Adventures by email at [email protected] for more information. To see a list of current adventures and sign up, go to our Happenings webpage for Calendar and Event SignUp.
