The waters of McIntosh County are known as the Fisherman’s Paradise. The abundance of rivers, fish, and proximity to the ocean attracts sportsmen to the area from around the world. If you are interested in a fishing guide, chartered fishing excursion, or a leisurely ride through the marshes, you will find experienced, knowledgeable boat captains and guides throughout the area.
More than 300 species of birds (75 percent of the total species of birds seen in Georgia) have been spotted at the 18 sites along the Coastal birding trail. Don’t expect to see most of these birds on a single visit. The birds you see will depend greatly on when and where you visit. Some birds can be seen throughout the year. Others are migratory and travel long distances from their breeding grounds to wintering areas.
