1:30 PM "Fort Pulaski Naval Campaign" - Boat Tour
Meet at Captain Derek's dock, Tybee Island.
Join us for a tour of Fort Pulaski from the water. The naval campaign for Fort Pulaski was as important to the Union victory as the much-vaunted rifled artillery. Faced with confusing channels, treacherous tides and a fort bristling with powerful cannons, the Union Navy was still able to encircle and isolate the fort. We will get a small taste of naval operations as we wind through Lazaretto Creek, the "back door" to the fort from Savannah, and cruise around the eastern edge of Cockspur Island past the historic North Wharf. The tour lasts approximately 2 hours.
Limited seating. Advance reservation required via phone at (912) 786-5787 extension 113.
