Here are a few places to sit back and relax on your weekend afternoons while you float along the coastal waterways!

Dunham Farms

Jones Creek Park

2059 Isle of Wight Road, Midway GA

Just before crossing the bridge to Isle of Wight in Midway, there’s a gorgeous park with a small landing for access to the water. Kayakers with some experience will enjoy putting in their boats here and paddling around Jones Creek. Pack a cooler and paddle out to a sandbar for lunch. This is a tidal creek, so be sure to check the tides before you head out, you don’t want to get stuck dragging your kayak through the mud! As you head in for the evening, be sure to check out the sky as the sun sets.  The colors are truly remarkable!

 

Riceboro Dock

Insterstate Paper Road, Riceboro GA

Turn off Hwy 17, to find another public dock and pier. You can spend the day kayaking this small creek that feeds into the larger Cay Creek. This particular spot is a local favorite for fishing, so be sure to bring your tackle box and fishing pole. You and your friends can have double the fun catching a delicious dinner while you soak up a few rays!

Sunbury Crab Company

541 Brigantine-Dunmore Road, Midway GA

The public Sunbury Dock is still closed due to hurricane damage, but the opportunity to paddle around Sunbury is still available! Head down the road a bit to the Sunbury Crab Company to rent a kayak and enjoy a beautiful day of ocean kayaking. This spot has direct access to the intracoastal waterway, so keep those tides in mind here, too! You can venture through the marsh and relax in the sun. Schools of dolphins are known to frequent this area, so keep your eyes open! Come back and order some fresh seafood and cold beverage when you’re done!
