Lighthouse Trolleys & Boat Tours - Saint Simons Island and Jekyll Island
"The Best Sightseeing Tour Company in the Golden Isles"

Welcome to the Golden Isles of Georgia!

The Georgia Golden Isles, (St. Simons, Sea Island, Jekyll Island & Brunswick) are rich in history, surrounded by the largest ecosystem on the East coast, and a fun beach town community!


Our company has been voted Best Dolphin Tour by locals, ranked in the Top 10 on Trip Advisor, and ranked #2 by Huffington Post as the best thing to do on St. Simons Island.


Lighthouse Trolleys and Boat Tours is also the go-to company for Golden Isles weddings! Our creative modes of transportation offer a fun and unique wedding experience!


Our company is owned and operated by a life long resident, Cap Fendig, and his wife, Catherine.  The Fendig family's presence on St. Simons Island goes back to the mid-1800s, making it one of the oldest and largest local families.  Cap, with his background steeped in Island history, enjoys sharing the secrets of the coast of Georgia with visitors!


Cap Fendig has been leading fishing trips for over 45 years as a licensed US Coast Guard captain. He credits his grandmother, who was a captain and skilled fisherman that put the "fishing/boating" bug in Cap. Now you can benefit from generations of experience!


When you book with Lighthouse Trolleys, you are booking a full island experience!  Fun family memories are our heartbeat and passion.
