Ferry Ride to Bull Island (Awendaw): This adventure combines all the best of what Charleston has to offer—a pristine coastal wilderness, a beautiful ferry ride, and a “boneyard” beach. Bull Island is part of the 66,267 acre Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge which was established in 1932 as a migratory bird refuge. The 30 minute ferry ride departs from Garris Landing and takes you through salt marsh creeks with plenty of wildlife viewing opportunities. Once on the island enjoy the 16 miles of trails through maritime forest.
Directions from Charleston: Take Hwy 17 N for 10.8 miles to right turn on to Sewee Rd. Head 3.4 miles to right onto Bull Island Rd. Follow this to Garris Landing.
