Day Trip and Overnight Trip Details: Everything You Need to Know about TOIF Trips
Planning to join us for one of TOIF’s sponsored day or overnight trips?
Here’s what you need to know, regardless of which trip you’re planning to attend.
Travel Arrangements: We are pleased to work with Captain Mike Neal and his eco-tour company, Bull River Cruises, as the transportation for our day trips, and with Captain Joe Dobbs for overnight trip transport. Unless otherwise notified, day trips depart from and return to Delegal Creek Marina at The Landings on Skidaway Island, just south of Savannah.
For day trips, the boat leaves promptly at 9:30 a.m. Please arrive at the marina by 9:15 a.m. The marina is about 30-45 minutes from downtown Savannah.
