Southern History at It’s Finest!

The Adventure of Shrimpin’ on the Lady Jane

We have spoken of the amazing southern charm and historic Georgia beaches found on St. Simon’s Island. The history of these ‘lands’ is extraordinary, leading visitors back in time through the most incredible culture they can possibly imagine.

 

And part of that amazing southern charm is the world of shrimping; the past of the fisherman that is still at work today. And there is a place – one amazing place – where you can not only head out and sail the beautiful waters while relaxing and enjoying one of the bestLady Jane-Shrimp Boat-Educational-King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort-St Simons Island-Georgia-5 meals you’ve ever had, but you can also become a part of this age-old tradition that the South still holds dear.

 

Now, many believe that this is an ‘old’ tradition but that is putting it lightly. In fact, this particular piece of our culture goes all the way back to 600 AD (far before North America was even labeled as such), which is what archeologists have come to learn. Back then, shrimpin’ off the southern coast was quite the big deal – not only for food but, perhaps for enterprise. And even a great mind even farther back than that – in the 3rd century – spoke about a meal that they had in ancient times that was the daintiest and most delicious of all their seafood – “shrimp on a bed of fig leaves.” This philosopher spoke about the hard work and passion that the fishermen who had chosen this particular career had for the water…a passion that is alive and well on St. Simon’s Island.

 

Lady Jane-Shrimp Boat-Educational-King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort-St Simons Island-Georgia-1Being able to become a part of that culture – a part of that history – is a truly amazing opportunity. And when you are surrounded by the captivating world of St. Simon’s Island, that journey goes from amazing to absolutely stunning in a heartbeat.

 

The name is, Captain Larry E. Credle. The place to live out this journey and experience the best that the South has to offer is, Credle’s Adventures LLC. This is where you will find the “Lady Jane,” a shrimping excursion cruise boat that is truly unmatched, unrivaled and completely unforgettable.

 

Captain Larry is many things – his passion for the sea and the marine community is legendary. Being a Marine Surveyor, he holds memberships in a number of professional societies, and is heralded as ‘Captain’ because of holding a U.S.G.C Master’s Rating Lady Jane-Shrimp Boat-Educational-King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort-St Simons Island-Georgia-3(200/500). From serving our country in the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary for many years, Captain Larry also holds a number of specialized qualifications, and is rated as an instructor. Most of all, his rich history and heritage on the water – through generations that have come before – has made Captain Larry and his “Lady Jane” one of the most sought after locales that tourists wish to visit the moment they set foot on St. Simon’s Island.

 

From running a commercial fishing vessel in the family business to building and repairing boats and vessels of all shapes and sizes, Captain Larry has spent a lifetime on the water; and being the master of the “Lady Jane” is a true ‘gift’ that he is giving back to the rest of us.

 

“SHRIMPIN’ EXCURSIONS ABOARD LADY JANE”

 

This is what the website says, and the fact that the seas are calm and passengers will experience not only history and culture, but also find themselves in a world of pure relaxation, has everyone screaming out: “LETS GO SHRIMPIN’!”

 

Whereas Captain Larry provides the brains and education to one and all, “Lady Jane” offers the sheer beauty that you will never forget. Lady Jane-Shrimp Boat-Educational-King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort-St Simons Island-Georgia-2This U.S. Coast Guard certified 49 passenger steel shrimping vessel was recently retired after years of loyal service to the shrimping industry. The ‘Lady,’ after being refurbished and brought back to life, now offers people cruising pleasure they have never known. Taking a few hours out of the busy day and spending it aboard “Lady Jane” is absolute paradise. And, while there, you can truly get into the core world of shrimping if you wish to help the knowledgeable and amazingly gifted crew of Marine Biologists sort the shrimp from “Lady Jane’s” catch before sitting back and enjoying the amazing meal of boiled shrimp that First Mate John Tyre prepares just for you.

 

And, no, there is no cause for worry about inclement weather. Each and every cruise remains in the beautifully protected waters of St. Simon Sound. And “Lady Jane” has it all at your disposal; from an air conditioned cabin and restroom to large open decks where you can walk around and enjoy the breathtaking views. This is, quite literally, paradise Lady Jane-Shrimp Boat-Educational-King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort-St Simons Island-Georgia-7on earth.

 

Adventure, fun, education – all mixed with ‘5-star’ services and the ultimate package of peace and serenity is what you receive when you speak with Captain Larry as he helms a real Shrimp Trawler and engages you in one of the most historical industries in the world.

 

The stunning ambience of St. Simon’s Island has no competition.
