Paddleboarding

The Golden Isles are quickly becoming the destination for stand-up paddleboarding in Georgia. The huge tide swings unique to this area provide the perfect setting, producing predictable wave conditions that change depending on the tides schedule. You can paddle out to sand bars far off the islands’ beaches to cruise some waves, feel the ocean’s force, and take a break from paddling—if only for a while. Explore the calmer marsh inlets between the barrier islands and the mainland and discover abundant wildlife around every bend. For the more competitive paddleboarder, the Golden Isles is host to the annual Golden Isles SUP Classic each October so you can test yourself against the best in the sport.
