Ferry

Note: No ferry runs on most state holidays, including: New years, MLK, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas

Note: The Georgia DNR requires advanced booking for public use of this passenger ferry!

The Sapelo Island Passenger Ferry is run by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR) - Wildlife Resources Division. UGAMI guests pay $5 roundtrip / person. ALL UGAMI guests must pay the ferry fee. Please submit ferry passenger requests to UGAMI at least a week in advance for groups < 10 and at least 3 weeks in advance for groups of 10 or more.  This gives an adequate time to meet DNR’s deadlines and resolve any scheduling conflicts.  The ferry does fill and the DNR does not allow anyone to board without a passenger request on record.  For best results contact UGAMI at least 3 months to a year in advance.
