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 on any event.

Makers Art class – tapped trees

Interested in art?  Come join us for an evening of creativity with watercolors. This class is aimed at those who want to express themselves with color and technique.

This is a fairly easy project that looks quite fancy when it is done. We will start with strips of tape to create the shape of the trees, then splash on the watercolors!  You get to choose the colors for the sky, leaves, and foliage at the base of the tree.

After the event we can find a place in Brunswick for dinner and drinks.
