Tybee Paddle Event Day - June 12th

Mark your calendars...

....for this year's Tybee Island Kayak Races, and
for what has been described as the best little kayak race in the Southeast... The Little Tybee Challenge!

The races are a fund-raising event for the Tybee Island Marine Science Center. The Marine Science Center has been providing interactive marine education to children and adults alike for over twenty years. As you know, the Marine Science Center on Tybee is crammed into a small and outdated space. Plans are afloat to upgrade the infrastructure and increase the education programs, completely relocating the facility to a purpose built center on the more peaceful north end of the island.

For Race Day, apart from competitors, race course marshalls and safety boaters are needed for on-water assistance. Volunteers are also needed to help set up and break down the event.

If you are interested in volunteering your time, contact Deb Kearney at
