St. Simon's Sound is one of the most straightforward entrances along the coast, and used by deep draft vessels going into Brunswick...

However, it is a LONG way in there from the sea buoy, and you really don't want to cut the corner coming from the south by more than about the second pair of buoys... All depends on the tide, if it's on the ebb, it will seem like FOREVER to get in there... If it's on the flood, however, and the breeze is still up out of the NW, it will kick up a very nasty chop...

So, hopefully it will lay down for you tomorrow, and the tide will be flooding on your arrival... Good luck...
