Amelia Island is the southernmost island in the Sea Island chain that stretches along the Atlantic Ocean from Florida to South Carolina. Our Amelia Island & Cumberland Island Boat Tour takes you on an exploration of Amelia Island and Cumberland Island. Amelia Island is the birthplace of the modern shrimping industry and formerly home to pirates and bawdy women, Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach boast a rich history.
The region’s abundant bionetworks include tidal marshes, coastal waterways, estuaries, ocean shorelines, and upland hammocks which provide unique habitats to plant and animal communities found nowhere else in the world. Amelia Island is also part of the Great Florida Birding Trail, where over 470 species of rare and common birds can be found, including roseate spoonbills, painted buntings, bald eagles, great blue herons, snowy egrets, and the endangered American wood stork.
Our Amelia Island & Cumberland Island Boat Tour navigates this intimate barrier island located directly on the Intracoastal Waterway, providing picturesque views of pastoral marshes, moss-draped live oak trees, and the sun-drenches beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.
On the water, we keep a lookout to spot dolphins, manatee, sea turtles, and if you’re lucky, a right whale during migration season. Bobcats, deer, raccoons, alligators, and armadillos are found in Fort Clinch State Park and Egan’s Creek.

Where do we meet for Amelia & Cumberland Island boat tour?
3 South Front Street, Fernandina Beach, Florida 32034. This is the Downtown Fernandina Beach City Marina. There is plenty of free parking in one of the three parking areas along the waterfront. Your captain will meet you at the boat which is on the first dock directly to the left of Brett’s Waterway Cafe. This is Dock F. You can also find our sign and the boat is directly above it.
Can you can take more than 6 passengers? What if I have a child?
United States Coast Guard regulations allow for up to six guests on our boat tours. We can not take more than six guests. If you have a child they do count as a person.
What do we wear/bring for our boat tour?
Wear comfortable clothes for the day’s weather and for being on the water. Feel free to bring any snacks, food and drink you want for your family and friends. Alcohol is allowed but no red wine please 🙂
Do we get out on Cumberland Island?
We do not disembark the boat at Cumberland Island. Cumberland Island is managed as a national park. Charter captains are not allowed to drop guests off onto the Cumberland Island National Seashore.
With this being said, we are able to cover more ground with more opportunities to see the wild horses and other wildlife as we explore the island by boat.
Are lifejackets required/provided?
Guests 13 and over are not required to wear a life jacket. Children 12 years old and younger are required by law to wear a life jacket. Life jackets are provided as needed.
Do we need to be early?
We are simply meeting at the boat and stepping aboard. If you want to be a little early that is fine but we may still be preparing for your arrival up until the meet time.
