Life on the Water



The water is integral to life at Osprey Cove. With the St. Marys River running through the spectacular marshes that cozy up to our community, and the ocean within easy reach, many of the pleasures of living here center around adventures on the water. Our members love kayaking the river, meandering down the boardwalk along the river’s edge, taking a sunset cruise, grabbing a drink with friends at the marshfront Tiki Hut, or fishing for tarpon, Spanish and king mackerel, cobia, and reds. Along the Cumberland Island National Seashore, mere minutes away, the largest and southernmost barrier island in Georgia, there are 18 miles of white-sand beaches perfect for beachcombing. There you can catch a glimpse of wild horses, dolphins, sea turtles, shore birds and much more. And, of course, for those who choose a marsh or riverfront home or homesite, the joys of life on the water are never-ending.
