It’s finally here and so are lots of Spring Fun with Tybee Island. What are y’all doing way over there? Just look at what you could be doing this weekend.

FareWhale Festival Hosted by Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary

The Beaches and Creeks of Ossabaw
Fort McAlistar Marina
Admission: $75 per person 5-6 people limit
Motoring past an historic Civil War fort and winding between lush walls of bright green marsh grass, this tour combines natural and human history of coastal salt marsh with the wild beauty of Ossabaw Island. You’ll meander through narrow tidal creeks watching for dolphin, birds, and others that feed off the lushness of our marshes. Stepping ashore you’ll have time for a relaxing stroll of this wild and seldom-visited beach, where you can beachcomb and enjoy the picnic lunch binoculars and bottled water; we provide a cooler and ice for your lunches and water.
Of course, all the best Spring fun on Tybee Island begins with your stay at Mermaid Cottages!
