It’s 130 mile length forms the eastern boundary between the two states, and flows east through the Cumberland Sound and into the Atlantic Ocean. Like the Suwannee River, the St. Marys River originates in the Okefenokee Swamp. Kayaking on this river, which provides an excellent habitat for wildlife and birds, is a true and beautiful wilderness experience.
We are excited to offer a paddle on the scenic St. Marys River! Our guided tour is a great 4-5 hour paddle, with a 1 1/2 hour round trip travel time from Amelia Island, Florida; or guests may meet our guide at a prearranged location. Paddle alongside dense forests that line both sides of this peaceful river. Along the way, guests have the opportunity to stop for lunch and swim.
