If you don't bring your own bike, you can rent one on the island. Rent one from several spots, including Fun Wheel Rentals. They offer many styles of bikes and they have child seats and trailers too! If you need beach toys or gear, you can also get it there! Bicycles seemed to be the most popular mode of transportation!
Sunset Dolphin Cruise. It was by far, the most entertaining evening I've had in some time. I know we were lucky. After meeting our Captain and his lovely "Admiral" we couldn't stop smiling! Check them out on Facebook too!
For those of you wanting to get out and experience it all, check out 4-H Tidelands Nature Center. Rent a canoe or kayak, walk the trails, or fish in the saltwater pond. They have a small exhibit area complete with touch tanks!
Georgia Sea Turtle Center! Through sea turtle rehabilitation, research and education programs, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center increases awareness of habitat and wildlife conservation challenges, and they promote responsibility for ecosystem health and empower individuals to act locally, regionally, and globally to protect the environment. The Georgia Sea Turtle Center is a hospital for ill and injured sea turtles. They are the only hospital of its kind in the state of Georgia. The Center is open to the general public and offers an interactive Exhibit Gallery and Rehabilitation Pavilion with a number of viewable sea turtle patients. We spent a few hours learning about sea turtles and visiting "patients."

Before leaving Jekyll Island, we stopped at Whittle's Gift Shop. This gift shop had a lot to choose from. The best items were under the counter! Logan picked up a shark's mouth and Sam picked up a hat. They were friendly and very helpful, taking the time to educate Logan on the anatomy of a shark's mouth! They treasure their purchases and their time in Jekyll Island!
