Coastal Georgia with Ginny Worthington and Cindy McEnery

Join Ginny Worthington and Cindy McEnery in search of Wild Horses, Atlantic bottlenose dolphins and a vast array of birds as we visit Cumberland Island National Seashore, the waters around Jekyll Island, and Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge. We will ride the ferry to Cumberland Island, home to approximately 170 wild (feral) horses, deer, other mammals and birds. This barrier island also contains a beautiful maritime forest, marshes, and eighteen miles of the most valuable sea turtle nesting habitat in Georgia. On Jekyll, we will embark on a two and a half hour Private Chartered boat tour in search of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins as they play, feed, or simply cruise about in their natural habitat. These waters are home to one of the world’s largest populations of bottlenose dolphins. Since Jekyll Island is also known for its spectacular sunsets, we will meet for a sunset shoot Saturday evening. Our tour also includes a visit to Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge which serves as a premier nesting, foraging, and wintering habitat for a diversity of wildlife, including nearly 350 species of birds. Signature species include endangered wood storks, the uncommon painted bunting, egrets, herons, other swamp birds, and alligators. You don’t want to miss this tour!
