Beach Drop for Sea Turtles | June 23 Book Now

We’re on track to have a record year of nesting within Cape Romain Wildlife Refuge!  This is great news for sea turtles!  To sustain the work that the Sea Turtle Team has been doing for almost 30 years, the program needs about $40,000 annually.  To date, through fundraisers at Awendaw Green and Rusty Rudder, the Coastal Expeditions Foundation and turtle volunteers have raised about $10,000, with a deficit of nearly $30,000.

We’re offering a special chance to visit Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge in the evening (we never do this) for a Beach Drop to the south end of Bulls Island to raise the needed funds!

Our adventure begins at Garris Landing in Awendaw where we will board the Bulls Island Ferry for a 30-minute ecotour through the dynamic edges of the class 1 wilderness of the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge with Coastal Expeditions naturalists.

We will land directly onto the wild southern beach of Bulls Island. This wilderness beach represents significant stretches of nesting grounds used by sea turtles along the southern end of Cape Romain.

Coastal Expeditions’ own Capt. Chris Crolley will lead the group on an interpretive walk down the beach stopping to explain and demonstrate the activities, duties, and responsibilities of the turtle volunteers who venture out from dawn till dusk daily this time of year in an effort to save these precious and endangered seagoing reptiles that are returning to their nesting beaches in unprecedented numbers right this very moment.   

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

Sunday, June 23
First Drop- 4:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Second Drop- 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
