The tour starts at the Gulfport History Museum where you can take a peek at some of their historic photos.
       
      Please note that this event is on our “summer schedule”, from May through September, we’ll be offering walking tours every third Thursday at 7 pm.

      These tours sell out, so advance ticket purchase is highly suggested. Members should pre-register to ensure they have a spot. We don’t love turning people away, but when the group gets too large it’s hard for everyone to hear our tour guides.

        The position indicated on this alert is not correct. The wreck is located on the other side of the channel very near Buoy G19. The best coordinates I can offer are 31°07'40.7"N 81°24'13.3"W or 31.127967, -81.403683

        As of September 10 the Brunswick Harbor/St. Simon's Range (shipping channel) is closed to commercial ships, but open for recreational boaters with instructions to stay away from the wreck by at least one half (.5) mile. There are reports that the Coast Guard may reopen the channel for ships on a restricted basis so if you enter this channel pay close attention to Coast Guard broadcast on Channel 16.

        Boaters are also asked to report the location of any oil slicks to the Coast Guard.

      2. James H Newsome -  September 10, 2019 - 1:46 pm

        There has been some confusion about the exclusion zone around the capsized ship in St Simon’s Sound. I called the Coast Guard station in Brunswick for clarification. The exclusion area is one half mile. Some people on social media are confusing “.5” with five miles. “.5” is 1/2 mile and one half mile is the confirmed restricted area to avoid at this time.

        The Coast Guard also confirmed that recreational boats can pass through St. Simon’s Channel entering or leaving. The channel is still closed to shipping.
