A Real-Life Treasure Hunt on Jekyll Island (FCL Jan. 23, 2023)

Kathryn Hearn, Marketing Communications Manager of Jekyll Island joins us with all the bedazzling details of one-of-a-kind glass floats.

Jekyll Island hand-picks artists from across the country to create one-of-a-kind glass floats for its annual Island Treasures event. The glass floats are part of a hide-and-seek style game played on Jekyll Island throughout January and February. Each day, volunteers called Beach Buddies will hide clear globes around the island for lucky guests to find and redeem for a real glass float. Gather your friends and family to search for globes that can be exchanged for dazzling handcrafted glass floats. 

Find a plastic globe?

Bring your plastic globe to the Jekyll Island Guest Information Center to exchange for your Island Treasure.
