My Jekyll: Paul & Linda

My Jekyll: Paul & Linda

“Jekyll Island is a place like no other. We brought our boat down from Annapolis [Maryland] for eight winters in a row and eventually decided we should stay. We live at the marina, which means we have year-round waterfront views and a constantly changing group of friends. The best thing about the island is its natural beauty. Since Georgia law mandates that only [a small amount] of the island can be developed, you find unspoiled beaches, live oaks, and wildlife here that you don’t see anywhere else. And the historic district is incredible. It’s like living in a history book.” – PAUL TRUELOVE AND LINDA THOMPSON

Paul Truelove and Linda Thompson work with Jekyll Island Boat Tours, Paul as a dolphin boat captain and Linda as office manager. They moved from Annapolis, where Paul taught at the Annapolis School of Seamanship and Linda was a chef on a large private yacht. Linda, who is also a licensed boat captain, often runs charters with Paul.
