The Amelia Island Lighthouse is considered the oldest structure on the island. First constructed in 1820 on Georgia's Cumberland Island, it was dismantled and moved in 1938 and reconstructed on Amelia Island. Construction was completed in 1839.

For those interested in a closer look, lighthouse tours are offered on the first and third Wednesday of each month at 10:00 a.m. Tours depart from the Atlantic Recreation Center. The cost is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children age 12 and under.

The Amelia Island Museum of History is housed in the historic Nassau County jail and showcases some 4,000 years of Florida history, including its eight flags of occupation. The museum offers exhibits, educational lectures, walking tours and ghost tours.

Where Kayaking Fun Begins!

The Bullington family welcomes you to Amelia Island Kayak Excursions. We are a family owned/operated kayaking business located in Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island, in Nassau County, Florida. Our main goal is to help you create a memorable and enjoyable experience while exploring the scenic inland waters of our area.

It was only natural that our business came to be, as it is the result of years of outdoor adventures we have enjoyed as a family. Our love for people and the great outdoors is derived from our belief in God, the Creator of this beautiful world, and we believe we are to be responsible stewards of all that He has given us. It is our desire to share our passion for kayaking with you.

For your enjoyment, we offer guided kayak tours through local inland waterways and salt marshes, as well as Cumberland National Seashore, the St. Marys River, the Okefenokee Swamp, and the Suwannee River. The most popular tours are our local 2-hour paddles on inland waterways, salt marshes, and the Amelia River. Included in our popular tour lineup are trips to nearby Tiger Island and Cumberland Island. We invite you to join us for one of our tours to enjoy the various aquatic vegetation, birds, and wildlife that nature has to offer in our area.

We love to see people experience for the first time how effortless kayaking can be. Time seems to stand still while being out on the water. We provide great guides, quality kayaks, Hobie Mirage kayaks, paddles, and Class III Personal Flotation Devices. Whether you choose our shorter or longer tours, we want to help you leave with a "boatload" of wonderful and lasting memories.

We are Amelia Island Kayak Excursions – where kayaking fun begins.

Check out our website for more information. We look forward to paddling with you soon!

Getting to Amelia Island
Amelia is only 30 minutes from Jacksonville International Airport. By auto, two bridges connect Amelia Island with the mainland. From I-95, take Fernandina Beach Exit 129, turn east onto A1A and travel 15 miles, cross the Intracoastal Waterway into the heart of Amelia Island.

Visitors traveling from the south may prefer to take A1A north of Jacksonville to the Mayport auto ferry which crosses the St. Johns River, or take A1A farther north to J. Turner Butler Blvd., then north on Hwy 115 over the Dames Point Bridge. Both options continue on A1A north over Big and Little Talbot Island onto Amelia.
