Jekyll Island

VISITING

From our sprawling beaches to our historic ruins, Jekyll Island is a coastal haven where nature and humans peacefully co-exist. Below are some things to note while you explore.

Tides

Jekyll Island experiences two high tides and two low tides each day. The time it takes to go from the first high tide to the following high tide is 12 hours and 25 minutes. High tides at Jekyll Island range between 6-9 feet above low tide levels. Be sure to check the tide charts before heading to the beach: gacoast.com/tide.html

Beach Accessibility

Jekyll Island is committed to beach accessibility for residents and guests with mobility challenges. Five public beach accesses are accessible to those with mobility issues: St. Andrews, Great Dunes, Glory, and Beach Village. Beach-going wheelchairs are available and can be delivered for use at no cost on a first-come, firstserved basis. Please call 912.635.2368 for reservations and delivery.

Beach Lighting

Sea turtles use lighting cues to orient themselves on the beach, but some lights can confuse them. Reduce harmful lighting without compromising human safety by using turtle-safe red lights (580 nm or longer wavelength). In general, the best policy is to use as few lights as possible. You can pick up a turtle-safe flashlight at your hotel’s front desk or the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.

Ocean Water

Why is the water brown? Large tides push and pull the water from the marshes to the ocean. The tides mix up sediment and microscopic plant and animal life from the marsh, which can make the water a little murky. The water is not polluted. In fact, wildlife thrives here because the waters are healthy and rich in life.

Wildlife

Horton Pond

Located across from Villas by the Sea The observation deck is wheelchair accessible and provides a wonderful view of the whole pond. A floating platform has been anchored in the pond to attract turtles, alligators, and birds to rest where they can easily and safely be seen from the deck. The low-lying promontory on the north side of the pond has been modified to form a small island, thereby providing habitat that is designed to attract nesting wading birds. DEC.MAR.

Ranger Walks: Maritime Forest Ecology and Bald Eagle Nest Viewing

Saturdays, December-March • 10 a.m. & 3 p.m. Led by an experienced island naturalist, this 45-90 minute walking tour offers the unique opportunity to walk down a historic trail through one of the island’s most diverse habitats and view an active bald eagle nest. Admission required. • jekyllisland.com/rangerwalks SEPT.

Gatorology 101

Sept • Interactive presentation teaching alligator biology, behavior, conservation, common misconceptions, and research. Reservations required. • jekyllisland.com/gatorology

The hard, white shell left by a dead sand dollar is called a test. A good rule of thumb is to “take the test,” and leave brown on the ground. The brown ones are still alive!

Two species of venomous snakes can be found on Jekyll Island: rattlesnakes and cottonmouths. Neither is common in areas where people spend much time. If you encounter a snake, do not approach it. The animal will likely move on if you give it space.

Do not feed alligators. It is illegal and unsafe. Be aware of your surroundings — alligators may be present in open water. Do not approach an alligator of any size. Do not attempt to retrieve a golf ball that has fallen in water or near an alligator.

The Jekyll Island Foundation is devoted to raising funds for conservation, preservation, and education initiatives on and for Jekyll Island. A place as special as Jekyll Island relies on the vision of insightful people and organizations to help its character thrive. Jekyll Island is unique among state parks, famous for its natural beauty and historical significance. The Jekyll Island Authority (JIA) is responsible for overall management of the park but receives no public operating funds. Revenue is generated from leases, fees, and amenity operations.

• JEKYLL ISLAND FOUNDATION

Conservation. Preservation. Education.

Consequently, the JIA established the Jekyll Island Foundation to raise money for projects focused on conservation, preservation, and education—caring for the island’s natural, cultural, and historical resources, and ensuring stewardship of what makes Jekyll Island so magical. The Jekyll Island Foundation invites you to be involved in preserving Jekyll’s unique environment. Participate in diamondback terrapin conservation, honor a loved one with a memorial bench or live oak, or join as a Foundation member. We would especially love for you to visit our newest fundraising project—Mosaic, the Jekyll Island Museum—a reimagined, interactive educational experience. Consider contributing to Phase II of Mosaic—The Paddock, a covered outdoor pavilion that will be used for educational and special programming. Situated adjacent to the Mosaic, this multi-purpose, outside location will provide added space for expanded explorative learning about the natural and cultural museum exhibits. Visit jekyllislandfoundation.org to view renderings of Phase II, learn more, or give online.
