Onboard with USCG Master Captain Sheryl Schooley of Darien River Runs you and your guests will enjoy a beautifully scenic nature tour of the Altamaha River and nearby barrier islands.

The Altamaha River and barrier islands are host to over one hundred rare or endangered species. You may see dolphins, manatees, hundreds of species of birds including eagles and herons, wild flowers, alligators and butterflies.

Attend the auction and maybe your bid will win this fun and exciting eco-charter tour—and benefit the SGA Endowment Fund at the same time!
