My wife & I are planning to do a day trip from Dee Dee Bartels boat ramp in Fernandina Beach (just north of Jacksonville) to Cumberland Island (a National Park in Georgia) on June 19, 2010 on our 2 AI's. We hope to leave the boat launch at 8:30 AM.

4 boats did the trip last year and it was a lot of fun.

GETTING TO THE DEE DEE BARTELS BOAT RAMP

For those who don’t often venture over the bridge crossing Egans Creek, to reach Dee Dee Bartels boat ramp and pavilion (North Amelia Island Park/Ramp), from Atlantic Avenue in Fernandina Beach, head north on 14th Street and go over the 14th Street bridge, then left. There’s an expansive parking lot to accommodate loads of vehicles and boat trailers — parking a trailer is a pleasure here, and the ramp is free to the public.

The boat ramp itself is very wide, allowing three boats to be launched at the same time. Two fishing piers/walkways jut out into the water a fair distance, and flank the ramp. Two floating docks, one on each side, are below the elevated walkways. The large pavilion provides a nice gathering spot and a shelter to wait for a rain shower to pass (there is a restroom facility, too).


If anyone wants to join us for a totally unstructured day just give us a call.

Jerry,

I'm interested in doing an AI sailing-camping trip to Cumberland. Do you know it that is possible? Reasonable?

Keith,

It is very possible and reasonable to go to Cumberland Island and camp.

The only problem that I see is that it will be hot but then your from south Florida so you probably already know that.

Jerry D :P
