Savannah sits on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, and the multitude of rivers and streams that flow throughout the area is not only good for delicious  seafood, but it’s also the perfect setting for plenty of Savannah boat trips.

Although Tybee Island is the most well-known of the barrier islands around Savannah, the lesser-known islands have their appeal as well. No matter which one you choose, these Savannah boat trips are sure to make you smile! 

Bull River Cruises.

Bull River Cruises

Nestled between Little Tybee Island and Wilmington Island is the Bull River, and Bull River Cruises is taking advantage of all that this waterway has to offer. Hop on board for an eco tour, where you'll travel through the tidal creeks, rivers and salt marshes of Savannah and learn about the ecology of this natural habitat. Their Sunset Cruise and Dolphin Discovery Cruise are also fan favorites. Imagine a perfect afternoon: you’re on the water, salty ocean wind cooling you off, and you’re sightseeing for dolphins. Savannah boat trips don’t get any better than that!

Bull River Marina

Bull River Marina is way more than your average marina experience. Sure, you have the ability to dock your boat, and if you wanted to rent a boat, you can do that too. The difference that Bull River Marina makes apparent is in their variety of Savannah boat trips and tours. They even allow groups to create custom charters! Some of the common charters that Bull River Marina offers are for weddings, proposals, eco-tours, bird watching and team building for businesses. Their fishing charters can accommodate individuals of all skill levels and fishing styles. Pack a lunch, then head out on the open water with a USCG-licensed expert as a fishing guide.
