Little Tybee Island Tours

Barrier island beach scene

Of Georgia’s undeveloped barrier islands, Little Tybee offers the widest range of options for guided kayak and paddleboard tours and boat excursions, due to its close proximity to the seafront town of Tybee Island.

Little Tybee Island offers a peaceful and unspoiled nature preserve and secluded beaches only a short distance from Tybee and Savannah, and is one of the easiest way to experience the varied environments of a barrier island ecosystem, with marshes, tidal creeks, ridged dunes and wooded hammocks.
