Trip Tips and Frequently Asked Questions

  •  All trips are fully refundable as long as you cancel within 24-48 hours of your trip. We understand that emergencies do occur so please notify us if you cannot go on your trip.
  • Please dress for the weather i.e., dress in layers. Hats need chin straps/ties (help us keep our 100% hat recovery rating).
  • Put SUNSCREEN on before you get out on the boat and bring it with you to reapply, regardless of the season. Water shoes, outdoor shoes, or crocs are great…
  • Life jackets are provided for everyone. We can provide an infant life jacket upon request; it is good to have one they are used to already, and that you are comfortable with.
  • Bring any drinks, beer or wine that you would like, there will be ice on the boat in a cooler.


Q: Should we tip our guide/first mate.

A: It is customary to tip guides particularly on fossil trips. They work very hard to ensure you have the best trip possible. They also have a very muddy boat to clean  up. Warning fossil trips are very muddy.

Q: Can we have more than six people?

A: Yes, you may have up to 18 people but you will have to have multiple boats. Multi boat trips are fun, we follow each other through the narrow creeks and we land together at different beaches and hammocks.

Q: What should we bring with us?

A: Please dress for the weather i.e., bathing suits, light cover ups, sun hats need chin straps/ties (help us keep our 100% hat recovery rating) and sunscreen. The beaches are very shallow on approach so it is hard to land without getting your feet wet; crocs, water shoes are recommended. Coolers with ice will be on board, bring any beer/wine/water/picnic you desire, a bag to collect shells, binoculars/camera, aluminum foil to wrap fragile shells and sand dollars. In winter we recommend rubber boots. Fossil hunters be ready for mud, no flip flops on these trips.

Q: Can we bring wine or beer?
A: Yes, you can.

Q: What if there is bad weather? Will we get our deposit back?
A: Yes, or we can reschedule your tour.

Q: Will we get seasick?
A: No, we are on protected waters and people do not get sick on our trips.

Q: What is the difference between the Little Tybee hop and the Little Tybee Unplugged?
A: The Little Tybee Unplugged is a high tide trip, allowing us to go deep into Little Tybee a 6,500 acre natural heritage preserve. It is an hour longer. We have the time to explore some of the remotest beaches where the shelling is much better and the likelihood of finding sand dollars is best. We usually see more than one pod of dolphin on this trip. It is unhurried and relaxing. The Little Tybee Hop is perfect if you have someone in your group that is not suited to being out in the sun or if you are on a tight schedule. The hop can be done at any tide or time of day. We are not restricted from landing on Little Tybee, you just do not go up into the interior of the island.

Q: Should we bring an infant lifejacket?
A: Yes, we have them, but please bring your own.
