Fernandina on Amelia Island is another ideal location for taking a sunset or day sailing boat tour. The waters of Cumberland Sound are protected no matter which way the wind blows. It is a short sail out the St Marys inlet so you have easy access to ocean sailing.
Leaving from Fernandina you can be on Cumberland Island at the Ice House dock in under 2 hours. If you have more than 4 hour charter, there is enough time to go ashore and see the ruins of the 59-room brick Queen Anne style mansion Dungeness, finished in 1886 and burned in 1959. You will be sure to see a dozen or more wild horses on your walk.
