|Bull Island: Shells, Wolves & Wildlife
Spend the day with naturalist Greg Cornwell exploring Bull Island, SC’s only Class 1 Wilderness Area. Find rare shell species; spot dolphins and bald eagles. On the boat rides through the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge, discover the life of the saltwater estuary. Learn firsthand about barrier isle formation and ecology as Greg points out wildlife, plants, and prize shells on the walk along the beach. Reachable only by boat, this barrier island offers some of the finest shelling on the East Coast, especially in late winter. Observe wading birds, big alligators and other wildlife along the walk inland through the forest of Palmetto, virgin pine, and majestic live oaks. Visit the Seewee Environmental Center; take a hike to see the Red Wolves on exhibit there and learn about the breeding program. Bring friends or family (min. age of 8 with adult) for a day immersed in the coastal habitat. Be prepared to walk 3 to 4 miles (moderate pace) on level ground. Fee includes boat transportation, admission fees, and naturalist guide with our small group. Bring a picnic lunch and meet at Garris Landing. Directions and hotel recommendation provided. No refunds.
