Lowcountry: Ferry and Tour of Bulls Island
February 24 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Leader: Coastal Expeditions
Sign up for this trip if you like birding, hiking, beachcombing, and a chance to explore the over 66,000 acres of Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge. The ferry to the island takes about 30 minutes. Once on the island, you’ll be able to explore the 16 miles of trails and seven miles of sandy beach. The jewel of the island is the magnificent Boneyard Beach. This three-mile stretch of beach at the northeast corner is the result of the surf that is steadily moving sand away from this end of the island. The hundreds of oaks, cedars and pines that are left behind are weathered by the salt and sun to create a skeletonized forest in the sand. Guests should be prepared with sunscreen, water to drink, insect repellent, good walking shoes (not sandals), and snacks to ensure a comfortable day. The fee is $35 per person, which includes the ferry and tour guide (but not tips). Please contact Coastal Expeditions directly to reserve your space on this trip (843-884-7684); the final day to RSVP is Friday February 23.
