Jekyll Island offers anglers an ideal setting for reeling in the big one. Whether fishing in the waves, from a boat or on a wharf, Jekyll Island has ample opportunity to cast out your line.

Anglers of all experience levels can take advantage of the splendid fishing options that abound on Jekyll Island. Charter and guide-led fishing tours are available daily in most seasons, and the Jekyll Island Marina and Jekyll Island Wharf offer ready access to the Intracoastal Waterway which runs through the Island.

Hop in the ocean and take off on your kayak, a popular pastime for anglers looking for an adventure-filled fishing session.
