Warblers can be seen during fall and spring migrations. Piping plovers may be spotted on the beach in winter. Bring along food, beverages, sunscreen, rain gear and other necessities because the island has no stores. Private boaters may dock at Sea Camp or Plum Orchard. Overnight boaters must anchor offshore.

About Cumberland Island National Seashore
Cumberland Island is the largest and southernmost barrier island in Georgia. With little commercial development, Cumberland has remained relatively stable over the last several hundred years.

However, barrier Islands are dynamic environments. For visitors who spend a few hours or a few days on Cumberland, this soon becomes apparent. Wind shapes the dunes, fire shapes the plant and animal communities that depend on them, and humans leave their impact too.

Cumberland Island supports a rich diversity of animals, plants, and offers amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean and Cumberland Sound. The rich marsh environment, as well as the deep night sky, hold something for everyone.

The only way to get to the island is by passenger ferry (not a car ferry) or private boat. For information about making a reservation with the National Park Service official concessionaire operated ferry visit the Reservations page or visit Cumberland Island Ferry website.
