Wassaw Island Beach Exploration

July 28, 8:00 am - 12:30 pm

| $50

Spend time with marine educators exploring the North end of Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge. We’ll anchor the skiffs along the shoreline and hike along the northern part of the island looking for seashells before sampling the surf for marine animals using a seine net. Children 10 years or older are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult.

Register here one week prior to the date of the trip.

  • UGA boat captains reserve the right to cancel boat programs in the event of unsafe weather conditions. In the event your trip is canceled or needs to be rescheduled, you will be notified prior to your trip. No refunds are provided unless captain cancels and an alternate date cannot be scheduled.
