Overview
The uninhabited Morris Island makes a nice contrast to the nearby city of Charleston, but Morris Island isn’t easy to get to, as it’s only accessible by boat. This cruise sets sail from Bowens Island and takes you to Morris Island to spend free time exploring it at your own pace before heading back. Be on the lookout for marine life, such as bottlenose dolphins and sea turtles, from the boat.
What to Expect
Make your way to Bowens Island for your Morris Island eco-cruise.

On the water, you cruise through inlets, salt marshes, and estuaries near Folly Beach on your way to the island. Keep a lookout for marine life such as dolphins and sea turtles, as well as birds along the route.

After you arrive on Morris Island, spend free time exploring independently at your own pace. See the historic Morris Island Lighthouse, go searching for shells, or just relax and take in views of the surrounding area.

Your Morris Island cruise ends on the Charleston Harbor and returns to the original meeting location for drop-off.

Highlight of our trip

This was BY FAR our favorite thing we did in Charleston. Captain Joe was so knowledgeable and personable. He cut the engine and let us float for about 20 minutes so we could be an arm's length away from bottle-nose dolphins. It was a small...More

Enjoyed the Natural Beauty of the Lowlands

We had a fantastic time on the Morris Island Lighthouse Eco-Cruise. Our Captain, Luke, was extremely knowledgable about the ecosystems, history and culture of the area. He was also on a first name basis with many of the dolphins that we saw. I would recommend...More
