St. Simons Sound Incident  

In September 2019, the car carrier Golden Ray capsized in the St. Simons Sound, north of Jekyll Island. Efforts are currently underway to remove the shipwreck from the sound.

While it’s unlikely you’ll find debris on Jekyll Island as a result of the removal of the Golden Ray, a reporting system is in place in the event debris is found. For shipwreck debris reporting, call 912.944.5620 or complete an online report form
