Very informative visit to Sapelo Island! Took a ferry ride to the island and a bus tour that was run by one of the locals. Visited the lighthouse, and the beach, and got a ride around the island full of natural beauty and history!

Area was pretty, we missed being able to head over to the island, but they had a sample of tabby architecture available on site. Trails were closed but it was cool to use the telescope in the center to look at the birds.

Spent the day at a private home on Sapelo Island. The visitors center offered a great history of the island. The beaches were sparkling clean and covered in shells. The ferry ride over was also very enjoyable.

You have to check for departure dates Wed and Sat and Times so check on line but the ferry over to Sapelo Island is worth it by itself. The tour of the island depends on the driver, but each has a slightly different route and...More

Came here for the day and it was beautiful and magical. No need to book tickets in advance for the ferry. You show up, it's only $5.00 for the round trip and the boat ride is incredible. About a half hour, you go up the...More

No auto's on the passenger ferry. You need to be a resident to take an auto over. They take you on a tour of the island.
