Jacksonville Airport is the one to use. Hilton Head is about a 2 1/2 - 3 hour ride north on I95.

Closest airport would be Jacksonville and you can get some good rates. Check and compare rates on home page of TA and also check Southwest airlines website.

Hilton Head is between Savannah and Charleston- both great cities to visit if you like history and great scenery.

It is about a 2 1/2- 3 hour drive from Cumberland Island to Hilton Head.

Hope this info helps and if you have more questions please let us know.

Thank you!

Have either of you stayed at the Greyfield Inn? Wondering if it's worth the $$$?? It looks amazing, but very pricey!

It depends. If you are just going over for the day or to camp, then you use the ferry that leaves from St. Mary's GA. If you are staying at Greyfield Inn, their ferry leaves from Fernandina Beach next to Amelia Island. Jax works for both but is definitely closer for the Greyfield's ferry. Savannah works well for St. Mary's.
