    Jekyll Island

    Was wondering if detecting is allowed on the beach at Jekyll Island?

    thanks.

    NOT allowed! I look across from Saint Simons every day and wish i could hunt it.

    but i talked to them and no detecting! not even on the beach.im trying to find out how far out in the Ocean they have controll.might hunt the water if allowed.what a shame to let all those items just sink in the sand!

    Re: Jekyll Island

    Thanks for the responses.

    I was thinking that at some point MD was allowed but the State must have changed that recently.

    I heard that other GA islands allow MDing (i.e. St Simons, Tybee, etc).

    Re: Jekyll Island

    yes,i live on Saint Simons and it is allowed here on the beach but not around the fort or Bloody Marsh Battle Field! and Sea Island is private ,the Island is gated and have no access.Tybee is ok to hunt. there are about 4 beach hunters here that hunt every week and keep it picked clean.LOL! hope the swimmers hurry back.

    Re: Jekyll Island

    Jekyll is an absolute no-no. It's printed on the brochure you get when you drive onto the island. I've talked to the state cops who patrol out there, and even thought about doing some night hunting over the years, but didn't. Basically the cop said don't even think about it, and if you do think about it, don't do it.

    Re: Jekyll Island

    I was curious about this too, thanks for the info. We can take our metal detectors on St. Simons Island? We are very new to this and this board.

    Dixie Digger, Was going to email, Sorry for the intrusion on this thread. Going to St. Simon's in Sept. Any recommendations on places to stay on the beach. Prefer the cottages, beach rentals. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Steve
