A Natural History of The Gold AT THE MARITIME CENTERen Isles
A Natural History of The Golden Isles Georgia's barrier islands are the mid-portion of the sandy barriers running from the middle of the South Carolina coast to the mouth of the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida. St. Simons is the second largest of Georgia's 18 barrier islands, encompassing 31 square miles. The barrier island groups along the Georgia coast contain remnants of two sets of ancient islands. The older set of islands formed Georgia's beaches 35 to 40 thousand years ago-the late Pleistocene Epoch. During this time mastodons, long-horned bison, saber-toothed cats, and giant ground sloths ranged across North America. About 18 thousand years ago, during the Holocene Epoch, ice sheets that covered much of the continent began to melt and the sea level rose. Migrating Sea Islands formed when advancing seas transported sand around the back of the islands building them from behind while eroding them from the front. Around 4 to 5 thousand years ago, the sea level rise diminished, allowing the establishment of the islands in their approximate positions today. The Geology of the Georgia Tidewater The shapes and sizes of barrier islands are more influenced by storms, seasonal winds, tides, and shoreline engineering than by the global sea level rise. Water currents carry sand, which is deposited in shallow areas, shoals and spits, near barrier islands. The northern ends of barrier islands show the effects of accretion and erosion (sand building up and being taken away), which vary from island to island. Currents moving in and out of inlets collide with those moving along the face of the islands. The sand carried by the currents falls out and builds up shoals. Waves "bending" around these inlet shoals create swirling currents, which add more sand. These sand build-ups are not very stable. Water ebbing and flowing through Gould Inlet between St. Simons and Sea Island breaks shoal sand free. This sand drifts south, nourishing the beaches on St. Simons Island. Unlike North Carolina's ribbon-like Outer Banks, Georgia's barrier islands are short and wide. Because the Georgia coast is much farther from the continental shelf, the ocean drops off and offshore waves lose their intensity before reaching the islands. With the low wave attack, Georgia's islands can grow wider.

Brethren of the Coast Charters
Sight Seeing Charters, Sunrise & Sunset Cruises Scenic Cruises The coast of Georgia offers some of the most beautiful marshes and coastline in our country. Our boat tours will give you an opportunity to see Little St. Simons Island, Sea Island, parts St. Simons Island, and all the marshes and waters in between. Nature & Dolphin Cruises Along with the beautiful landscape of the Georgia coast, it is very common to see some of the wild animals that live in our waters and on our islands. Dolphins (properly called porpoises) are very common in our warm waters. It is a rare boating trip that we don't see several dolphins feeding and playing around the boat. Sea turtles have been spotted on many of our trips as well, and Captain Carl is well-known to the Department of Natural Resources and the Sea Turtle Preservation Society in the area. He rescued an injured sea turtle, later named Georgia. She was the first patient in the new Sea Turtle Hospital on Jekyll Island, GA when it first opened. Please keep in mind that both dolphins and sea turtles are wild animals. They migrate up and down the east coast, and we cannot guarantee a sighting. That doesn't mean that we won't try! Sunrise & Sunset Cruises We now offer one and a half hour sunrise and sunset cruises that take you along the rivers and marshes of the coast of Georgia and out into the beautiful St. Simons Sound. Each sunrise cruise comes with a complimentary carafe of coffee and each sunset cruise come with a complimentary bottle of wine.
