Join us on a special SEA TURTLE BEACH DROP to benefit the Sea Turtle Program in Cape Romain!  This critical conservation program has a $40,000 budgetary shortfall and we are reaching out to the community to help!

Take the ferry out to the southern end of Bulls Island, a sandy wilderness that hosts hundreds of nests each summer.  Along the way, the naturalists on board share information about Cape Romain NWR and some of the endangered & threatened species it protects.

On the island, you’ll get a glimpse into the program as Capt. Chris leads an interpretive walk down the shoreline.  It’s an opportunity to understand the responsibilities of the turtle volunteers who work from dusk to dawn to protect this endangered species.

This fundraiser is a fun and family-friendly event on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!

100% of each ticket will go to the Sea Turtle Program in Cape Romain NWR!

 

Every year, the Coastal Expeditions Foundation commits to paying the seasonal salaries of the wildlife biologists in Cape Romain Wildlife Refuge.  In the nearly 30 years that we’ve been running ecotour to the island, we’ve seen the important work that the Sea Turtle Team has done to protect loggerhead sea turtles and watched the exponential success of their efforts.   To sustain this program, the Coastal Expeditions Foundations raises $40,000 annually through donations, Beach Drops and small fundraisers.

Trip Advisor Reviews

My husband and I had the pleasure of attending a "turtle drop" excursion to Bull's Island. It was wonderful to learn from the guides whose passion for what they are doing was so evident. It was casual, informative, interesting, funny and awe-inspiring. There are many tours that are available that emphasize entertainment; this tour is for people who want to learn about our natural environment, what is being done and what we can do to preserve it.
