Amelia Island is the southernmost island in the Sea Island chain that stretches along the Atlantic Ocean from Florida to South Carolina. Our Amelia Island Cumberland Island boat tour takes you on an exploration of Amelia Island and Cumberland Island. Amelia Island is the birthplace of the modern shrimping industry and formerly home to pirates and bawdy women, Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach boast a rich history.
The region’s abundant bionetworks include tidal marshes, coastal waterways, estuaries, ocean shorelines, and upland hammocks which provide unique habitats to plant and animal communities found nowhere else in the world. Amelia Island is also part of the Great Florida Birding Trail, where over 470 species of rare and common birds can be found, including roseate spoonbills, painted buntings, bald eagles, great blue herons, snowy egrets, and the endangered American wood stork.
