Seen near where it meets the Atlantic Ocean, the Savannah River becomes more estuary than traditional river. Tides here can affect its levels by up to seven feet, and the current is quite swift. This vantage point can be accessed from the parking lot at Fort Pulaski National Monument, on the trail leading to Battery Hambright. It’s an easy walk and less than half a mile.
