Tybee Island Beach Walks Marsh

The Tybee Island Marine Science Center offers daily Walks, Talks, & Treks programs: Sift ‘n’ Seine at 1PM; South Beach Walk at 2PM; Turtle Talk at 3PM; and Marsh Trek at 4PM.

Cost: All Walks, Talks, & Treks are $10 per person, $8 for science center members. Children ages 4 & younger are FREE! Program duration: 60 minutes.

You can register online at www.tybeemarinescience.org or stop by the center in person to sign up. Registration and payment are requested at least 30 minutes prior to program start time.

Sift ‘n’ Seine at 1PM

On the sift ‘n’ seine program, you’ll discover the marine life of the intertidal zone by pulling a 10 foot seine net through waist-deep water. Commonly caught organisms include pompanos, sea jellies, and crabs. After seining, you’ll explore the marine life of the sandy bottom by sifting various organisms from the wet sand on the beach. This program is recommended for participants ages 9 and older.

South Beach Walk at 2PM

South beach walks depart from the science center where you’ll join one of the marine science center’s knowledgeable marine science educators on a guided walk of Tybee’s south beach. Learn about the dynamics of Georgia’s barrier islands, the importance of the intertidal zone, the forces behind the waves, Tybee’s unique tidal surge, and the role that sand dunes perform in keeping Tybee protected.

Turtle Talk at 3PM

During the Turtle Talk, you’ll learn about anatomy and natural adaptations of sea turtles, discuss Tybee’s Sea Turtle Project conservation efforts, and get to meet the resident loggerhead sea turtle, Matthew. Based on program content, Turtle Talks are recommended for kids ages six and older.

Marsh Trek at 4PM

On a marsh trek, you’ll enjoy a hands-on exploration of Georgia’s salt marsh, searching the mud for fiddler crabs, snails, and more. Learn about adaptations necessary for survival in this environment, how the marsh functions as a nursery for many organisms, a filter for pollutants, and as an abundant food source. Please wear closed-toed, closed-heel shoes, such as rain boots or old tennis shoes (no flip flops or Crocs) and expect to get muddy. Marsh Treks meet off-site from the science center, on the north end of the island at Spanish Hammock. Directions are provided with paid program confirmation.
