Here, you and your partner can join the crew at Cap Fendig’s Tours for a trip of a lifetime to meet the resident dolphins that call the coastal waters of St. Simons Island home. 


Nothing is more relaxing after a morning on the water than treating your spouse to a joint spa day at the Island Day Spa for an afternoon of pampering and therapeutic spa treatments. Where better to complete the ideal romantic trip to St. Simons Island than a beachside sunset picnic, where the mesmerizing hues of the setting sun add extra warmth to your toast as you celebrate your love for one another?
