Bright old boat docked in Savannah, Georgia near The Slate



Savannah, the oldest city in the state of Georgia, features endless opportunities for outdoor recreation – from rivers to ocean access, this city has it all. Here are a few ways to have fun on the water.

Dolphin Magic Tours

Love dolphins? (Come on, who doesn’t?) Enjoy this quirky boat tour that will get you up close and personal with Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. This company offers a “dolphin guarantee,” which means if the dolphins are a no-show, you’ll get to come back for free. Best of all, you’ll also get to see the historic sites of Savannah including Fort Jackson, the Tybee Island Light Station, and Cockspur Island, among other beautiful locations.

Savannah Riverboat Cruise

Take a leisurely paddle down the river in true Southern style. Choose from a variety of different cruises: brunch, dinner, drinks, sunset, moonlight, and sightseeing. It’s a great way to see the city or simply to celebrate on the only riverboat tours in the city.

Savannah Canoe & Kayak

Take a half-day tour and explore the Skidaway Narrows, Ebenezer Creek, Little Tybee, or other nearby locations. Known for their professional yet laid back style, this is the perfect venue for those who love to paddle.

The Daufuskie Difference

This company not only offers tours and dinner cruises, but waterfront cottage rentals and live music and events on Daufuskie Island. It’s the perfect destination for a mini-getaway.

Tybee Island

What could be better than a day at the beach? Tybee Island has been a vacation destination since the late 1800s. Just 18 miles from downtown Savannah, you’ll find five beaches where you can relax and enjoy a sunny day in the beautiful Atlantic waters.
