Default St Simons Boating

Hello,

I have a potential job offer near St Simons, GA. Just curious what the boating scene is like here...the fishing seems pretty good, but what about just casual cruising, tubing, skiing, anchoring at sandbars, kind of stuff? Is there any of that here? On my quick visit, it didn't seem the type of place for it. Strong tides, muddy water, and alligators/snakes seem to limit these activities. Please correct me if I am wrong.

What about boating to and playing on a beach...do the tides allow this?

Also, if we wanted to do these kind of things (I have 3 small kids), where would we need to go? Could we cruise the intercostal someplace close, or would we need to trailer the boat and go elsewhere?

Thanks in advance for any info.

I don't live there but my uncle does so I've been out boating with him quite a few times over the last 13 years he has lived there. There is a strong cruising and beaching scene with many different areas to go. They have a huge tide 6-8 ft, I think, and the water is very silty and brown. A stark contrast to the 3 ft tide and Crystal clear water I am used to around morehead nc. Even still the area is beautiful and they have a long season. If the job was right I'd move in a heart beat.

Is the job with GP?

Stevesmarsh,

Thanks for that info. It's good to hear there is somewhat of a boating scene.

I'm looking at a position with the local hospital.

If anyone else has input, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Lots of options and great fishing. Think south is Fl about 45 minutes. There are MANY barrier island with pristine beaches both north and south.
