Experience history from the water (and score some shrimp.) Captain Thomas Oliver’s grandfather owned a shrimp boat that operated here in the late 1950’s. Today ,Thomas takes guests on boat tours exploring the shrimping history of Fernandina, out past Fort Clinch and over to see the wild horses of Cumberland Island. Catherine Oliver leads guided kayak tours throughout the waterways of Amelia Island where you can paddle by to see the local shrimping fleet at work. From August 15-September 30, any party that books an Amelia Adventures tour will receive 1 free pound of shrimp from Fernandina's famous Atlantic Seafood using the promo code "AmeliaShrimp.” Book online or call at 904-500-TOUR.

Paddle to the Shrimp Nursery with Kayak Amelia. The salt marsh is where shrimp begin their lives and grow until they are big enough to head to the ocean. Join an ecotour in Talbot Island State Park to learn about the life cycle of the local shrimp. Tours are 3 hours long, no experience necessary. $65 adult/$55 children under 12 yr.) Make reservations here or call 904-251-0016.
