Filming "Georgia Outdoors" w/ GA Public Broadcasting on the Altamaha River

After 3 days filming from the confluence down to tidal swamp we headed out to the mouth of the mighty Altamaha.  We stayed on the Captain Gabby three days as the crew filmed the nesting pelicans on Egg Island Bar.  It was incredible the amount of activity out there.   Using the "Loose Goose" as a tender, we moved kayaks, people, and gear around.  It was a pleasure working with Sharon, Shane, and Sue from GPB, and Patrick from the Gabby.  The Altamaha River is incredibly large and remote, aptly described as "Georgia's little Amazon".
