Ready to break out of lockdown? Need an escape from the day-to-day? It’s time for a getaway with the guys. What better place than Tybee Island and Savannah!
First on the agenda, get your line in the water with a fishing charter. After all, what’s better than spending a day in a boat? American Fishing Charters and Reel Em’ N Charters both have experienced captain and crew to take you on offshore trips full of waves, water and fish. In October and November, anglers reel in sea bass, triggerfish, sea bream and more.
If you would prefer to stay inshore, book with Marshland Inshore Fishing Adventures. Their trips get you on some reds, speckled trout and flounder in the calm waters around Tybee Island.
Another great way to get out on the water is with a kayaking or canoe expedition. Sea Kayak Georgia can set up a custom trip paddling the waterways that make up this coastal barrier island system. They take trips from Chimney Creek to Little Tybee Island, or around the north end of Tybee to Lazaretto Creek.
Next, tee off at one of the challenging golf courses around Savannah. Your foursome will enjoy great golf on courses that wind through tidal wetlands, weave through oaks and pines and test every skill level. Book a time at The Club at Savannah Harbor, Marshwood Golf Course at The Landings Club or The Landings’ Magnolia Course.
After a day swinging, paddling, or casting, you’ll want to relax with a cold brew. Tybee Island offers some great locations to sample some of the Savannah area’s craft beers. Several restaurants are just a hop, skip and a jump from your Tybee Island property.
Salt Island Fish & Beer, for example, serves cold, local craft beer with appetizers like beer cheese hush puppies, smoked fish dip and baked oysters. For an entree, dive into a thick, juicy Salt Island burger topped with pimento cheese and fried onion, or the beer-battered fish sandwich made with wild-caught flounder, sweet onion coleslaw served on a brioche bun.
You can also taste a local brew at Coco’s Sunset Grille at Lazaretto Creek Marina. Try Coastal Empire Savannah Brown on draft or the house brew, CocoBock. Chow down on a shrimp cake sandwich, CoCo’s Wings or a seafood dinner. You can’t go wrong with dinner on their deck.
Text the guys, book a rental and make a plan.
