Capt. Nick Johnson

Boat Captain and First Mate

Certified Lifeguard

There are few people that have spent as many hours as Nick in the waters of Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge and exploring Bulls Island.  As the First Mate on the Bulls Island Ferry, he’s led countless trips out to the island, educating people about the native ecosystems, coastal geology and history of this special place.

Nick can give you the best recommendations for trails to take on the island and what to order at the Sewee Restaurant once you return to the mainland.

“Go on many trips with Coastal Expeditions. After a week in Folly Island and visiting sites in the Charleston area, the trip to Bulls Island was hands down the best part of our vacation. Our guide Nick was very knowledgeable and helped us plan a route on the island so we could see everything we wanted to see. My only regret is not taking more trips, like sea kayaking, with Coastal Expeditions. Seriously amazing.” -MitchyThings, TripAdvisor
