Tybee Island Paddleboarding

Sunset scene of a wooden jetty over the marsh at low tide in Tybee Island, GA.

Paddleboarding is a fun and unique way to experience the landscape and nature of the Georgia coast, offering a higher vantage point and better views than the more popular kayak.

The sheltered creeks and rivers around Tybee Island offer many locations suitable for paddleboarding, either on a guided tour (these will usually include some instruction for people who have not tried the activity before) or out by yourself if you have the necessary experience. Several local companies also offer paddleboarding lessons.

Paddleboarding tours to Little Tybee Island and the Skidaway River are also available. Any of these tours should be suitable for beginners.
