Get ready to enjoy the sights and sounds of the waters surrounding Amelia Island in the back creeks, rivers, and wide open ocean. Whether you’re drifting, cruising, sailing or speeding over waves, there’s something about being out on the water that eases the mind and lowers the blood pressure. Throw in a perfect Florida sunset and, well, you may never want your Amelia Island vacation to end.
Find out here why we’re not only known for having the best beaches in Florida, but our history and nature over the water is pretty cool, too.
Cruising around Amelia Island is one of the most popular things for visitors to do and AMELIA ADVENTURES is ready to get you out on the water with one of three amazing tours offering views of dolphins, manatees, sea otters, alligators, and the wild horses of Cumberland Island National Seashore. And, with a storytelling captain that provides narrated, historic and wildlife sightseeing tours, AMELIA RIVER CRUISES comes highly recommended with their BYOB sunset river cruise complete with live local musicians on board. Spectacular views and loads of fun can found on either of these tours. Make sure you take lots of selfies and tag us with #LoveAmelia.
An Amelia Island boat tour doesn’t always have to be on a “motor” boat screaming across the water. Sometimes it can be a carefree sail where the wind gently propels you to your destination. Departing from the harbor at the foot of Centre Street, a charter with WINDWARD SAILING takes you on a completely customized excursion – and, since their seasoned Captains are also sailing educators who teach certification courses, they will let you try your Chand at the wheel if you feel so inspired. A two-hour sail in the early evening gets you back just in time to see the sunset and arrive at your dinner reservations at one of DOWNTOWN’S ECLECTIC AND EXCELLENT RESTAURANTS.
Enjoy the water, your way, by renting a boat or jet ski from AMELIA BOAT CLUB & RENTALS. Grab your fishing gear and cast a line in the back creeks, take a sightseeing cruise past historic Fort Clinch, or hop on a jet ski to get a different, more adventurous perspective. It’s all up to you. Rentals are available on an hourly and daily basis, offering 8 boats and 4 jet-skis. Boats may be rented with or without a driver. The jet-skis are self-guided, so guests are free to enjoy on their own. Those looking for a fishing adventure in the open sea can charter a boat from one of the island’s many CHARTER BOAT COMPANIES for the opportunity to land red bass, trout, flounder, tarpon, and more.
Let all of your worries disappear over an glass of your favorite beverage, your favorite person, an Amelia Island sunset and the water. See you soon!
