My name is Cap Fendig, and I want to be your island host by land or sea! I am a lifelong resident of St. Simons and a member of one of the oldest families on the island. In addition, I have been a 48-year licensed US Coast Guard Master Captain. Over the years, thousands of people from all over the world have visited St. Simons Island, journeyed with me out on the coastal waters, and toured the Georgia coast islands. My wife Catherine and I own and operate several small businesses locally. One of our greatest joys is providing access to the sights, sounds, and experiences of the inaccessible wilderness areas on Georgia's coast. Day or night, we offer trips and insights that help create those special, memorable moments that last a lifetime. Cruise through our website to reserve a choice of tours for you and your family or guests, then book online or call us for additional questions. We will work to make sure you have a great vacation visit memory!
See you soon!
