A Day on the Water at The Ford: Adventures on the Ogeechee River & Beyond

Published on

From fishing, kayaking and water-skiing to swimming and island-hopping, when The Ford Field & River Club is home, unforgettable water adventures are on deck year-round. 

Members can request expert-led excursions from the Deepwater Marina and explore The Ford’s four miles of Ogeechee River frontage, nearby Ossabaw Sound and the Intracoastal Waterway—all of which represent some of the finest marine and freshwater habitats in the Southeast. Anglers of all skill levels will delight in fishing for bass, trout, snapper, triple tail and red fish. 

When exploration calls, residents can motor out to Ossabaw Island for private picnics and relaxed, island-to-yourself beach days filled with dolphin-watching. Farther out are St. Simons, Jekyll and Amelia Islands, each offering their own unique wildlife, scenic beaches and sandy terrain. 

Before heading home, be sure to stop by Fish Tales for fried fish baskets and hit-the-spot hushpuppies. Casual and family-friendly, this riverfront restaurant at Richmond Hill’s Fort McAllister marina is a longtime favorite among Ford members.
