Twilight Cruise on Amelia River

August 24th, 2011 by theAddison

Amelia River Cruises now offers a 2-hour BYOB Twilight Cruise. The boat leaves the Fernandina Marina and goes over to Cumberland Island and up Beech Creek to where the ruins of Dungeness Mansion lie.  That is me in the picture with Maggie Doone as we set off on the cruise.  Maggie loves going on the boat. 

The big difference between this cruise and their other cruises is that there is no narrated history on this cruise but there is live music being played by local musicians.  And you can bring your own bottle of wine or 4-pack of cold PBR.  We shared the boat last night with a bunch of people who were celebrating a birthday.  That is Captain (and owner) Kevin McCarthy driving the boat.     

The cruise left the marina and headed up Amelia River to Cumberland Island.  We went up Beech Creek looking for dolphins but got a spectacular look at the sunset instead.  Shannon, Maggie Doone and myself love getting out on the water but don’t get out often enough so this was a real treat. The weather was perfect and the sun set right where it was supposed to.  There were just enough clouds in the sky to make the sunset interesting.  Check out our Facebook page for the full photo gallery.
