Golden Isles Adventures

Riverview Drive
Jekyll Island GA, United States

Golden Isles Adventures offers party boat fishing, charter fishing, and all sorts of fun activities you could think of in the magical waters of Georgia. Your trip can depart from Jekyll Island, St. Simons Island, Sea Island, and Brunswick, Georgia and into the most mesmerizing waters.

Captain Creighton Dukes is the owner and operator of Golden Isles Adventures as well as a Jekyll Island resident. He loves everything about living on the island and being on the water almost year-round. Creighton is a family man who loves having other families aboard his boat and enjoys teaching kids how to cast for fish, how to hook it, and how to reel it in.

Other activities you can enjoy with Captain Creighton include crabbing and fossilized Shark teeth hunts, shrimping adventures, nighttime marsh explorations, and the too-good-to-be-true “It’s Your Boat” trips. These trips allow you to design your trip for you and your group by mixing and matching any activity you enjoy.

In order to make all these activities happen, Captain Creighton operates a 15-person Crest commercial boat. The vessel is 35’ long and very wide in order to provide comfort and plenty of elbow room. Originally built in 2001, it has been upgraded with a 90 HP 2013 Yamaha Four Stroke engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 20 knots.

The spacious vessel has a hardtop that covers about 50 percent of the deck and is, therefore, able to provide substantial shade in the hot summer days. It also features long cushioned benches, life jackets for safety, an icebox, a GPS and a fishfinder to aid the fish search, and a multimedia system for entertainment.

Golden Isles Adventures provides fishing licenses, rods, reels, tackle, live, dead, or artificial bait, and a first mate. They can clean and fillet your catch and expect you to tip the mate for this service.

Fishing started slow. Tide finally got right and we got on the fish. Caught several species of shark, Croker, whiting, sting rays, trout and other species. Awesome trip well worth the money. Captain is a great down to earth guy who knows his business.
