Jekyll Island Marinas


Explore Coastal Georgia's Waterways and Wetlands.


The Atlantic ocean surrounds Jekyll Island and creates vast opportunities for Explorers to take a boat out in the sea or stay close to shore and meander along the many waterways and marshlands that are a part of the Golden Isles ecosystem. There are abundant wildlife to be seen and dolphin sightings are common all along the coast.

Jekyll Island Fishing Licenses

Georgia Department of Natural Resources

A Georgia fishing license is required whether fishing inland on a lake or river or on the coast in the ocean or sound. Georgia residents over 65 years old can obtain a lifetime fishing license without charge. You can acquire a fishing license either through a licensed dealer (e.g. Maxwell's in the Jekyll shopping center) or online. A license also can be purchased directly from the state Department of Natural Resources, which has a facility just east of the Sidney Lanier Bridge on the north side of the Brunswick River.

A fishing license costs $9 for a Georgia resident or $45 for a non-resident for one year. All fishing licenses are good for one full year (12 months) from the day that they are purchased. One-day licenses can be purchased for $3.50 for both residents and non-residents.
Shrimping & Crabbing on Jekyll

Shrimping

No visit to Jekyll or Coastal Georgia is complete without a taste of the infamous Wild Georgia Shrimp. For those looking to catch their own, St. Andrews beach on the south end of Jekyll Island is a popular spot for recreational shrimpers. This area can get crowded on weekends, with several 100-foot (maximum size) nets being dragged along the bottom of the shallow water, as well as a few individuals with casting nets. Shrimping season generally runs from early June until early January. A fishing license is required - for more info visit the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

Crabbing

Catching a blue crab in the coastal waters is as simple as putting some tasty bait on a hook in a small net or crab cage and throw it into one of the creeks on Jekyll Island or off the fishing pier and waiting just a few minutes. Prime locations for crab-catching on Jekyll Island are Clam Creek on the north end or St. Andrews beach on the south end. Patience is rewarded after just a few minutes. Reeling them in as as easy as pulling in your net or cage and very carefully removing the crabs with a pair of long pliers or other tool, being extra cautious to avoid those nasty pinchers! Regulations mean all crabs need to be a minimum of five-inches across, otherwise you have to throw them back. A Georgia fishing license is required. Crab nets, cages and other supplies can be found at Maxwell's in the Jekyll shopping district.
