Pinckney Island Wildlife Refuge & Beachcombing



Our 2.5 hour private excursion takes you into the waters of Calibogue Sound, plentiful with Dolphins, native birdlife and more. We continue to explore the salt marsh estuaries as we circumnavigate Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge, a 4053 acre sanctuary for a variety of birds, Dolphins and other local wildlife. Watch for other creatures inhabiting this amazing refuge. Follow remote tidal creeks into the heart of the lowcountry for a true connection to nature in this biodiverse habitat. Continue on to a beautiful secluded beach for an opportunity to stroll the shoreline as you collect shells and other beach treasures. An amazing experience for all Dolphin and wildlife enthusiasts! This excursion is great for everyone, even little kids, because you can get off the boat and explore as well as see all the sights by water. This adventure requires the ability to get on and off the boat from the beach. Bring water and sunscreen. Dress for comfort with footwear that is easily removable.
