Casa Genotta’s proximity to the water provided O’Neill opportunity for cast surfing, swimming, kayaking and strolling on the beach. A playwright in the morning and a sportsman in the afternoon, O’Neill was a dedicated angler, and would often join George Boll and other locals on fishing excursions to catch red fish, trout, tarpon, mackerel and sharks. Sea Island’s offerings of catamarans, sea-kayaks and fishing charters allows guests to explore Georgia’s coastal waters in the footsteps of the dramatist. While the cottage is outfitted with light tackle appropriate for surf fishing, booking a charter through Sea Island is the choice way for wetting one’s hook. The following list identifies the optimal season for popular varietals for both sport and eating.
