Event Details


September 13: 16th Annual Tybee Island Sea Kayak Races at A-J’s Dockside, 1315 Chatham Ave. Join us for this fun event. Race in the River Race (6 ½ miles on the Back River) or the Little Tybee Challenge (8 miles circumnavigating part of Little Tybee Island). The Race Across the River is a short fun race for Gold and Platinum Sponsors. Races begin at 10 a.m. Sign-in is 9–9:45 a.m.

If you are not interested in competitive racing, but want to support the Tybee Island Marine Science Center, sign up as a casual paddler for 2 miles in the River Race. It’s like being a walker in a running race.

Other fun includes a Stand Up Paddleboard category in the River Race and the Little Tybee Challenge, the drawing (open to everyone) for the Perception kayak plus paddle and PFD donated by Half-Moon Outfitters, and the Awards Ceremony drawing for participants after the races.

This event is sanctioned by the American Canoe Association. Visit TybeeKayakRace.org for more information including registration.
