Getting to the Island

Little St. Simons Island is located just off the Georgia coast midway between Savannah, GA and Jacksonville, FL. Daily commercial air service is available to those two cities as well as to/from Atlanta to nearby Brunswick, GA. 

  • From Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV) it is 90 miles and takes about 1 1/2 hours to drive.
  • From Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) it is 75 miles and takes about an hour and fifteen minutes to drive.
  • From  Brunswick Golden Isles Airport (BQK) it is 25 miles and takes about forty minutes to drive.

Unless you are planning to take a side trip, we recommend using a car service for transport to and from the airport being you won't need a vehicle during your visit to Little St. Simons Island.  Most of our guests use Seaside Transport (912) 638-2638.

Our private boat departs from Hampton River Marina on the north end of St. Simons Island. By car, St. Simons Island is reached from I-95 via Georgia Exits 29 or 38. It takes approximately 45 minutes to reach Hampton River Marina from the exits on I95.  See below for a downloadable map.
