Things to Know

ARRIVE EARLY
The Bulls Island Ferry departs Garris Landing promptly. Arrive 15-30 minutes early and walk to the end of the pier.

WHAT TO WEAR
Bulls Island is a 5,000-acre remote barrier island, so dress for hiking, wear layers, and a hat for sun protection. Once you get to the beach, you can ditch your shoes and dip your toes (or swim) in the Atlantic, but you’ll want closed-toe walking shoes while you are hiking the roads and trails of the island.

WHAT TO BRING
Small backpack with plenty of drinking water, lunch, sunblock, and insect repellant.

ACTIVITY LEVEL
Following a 30-minute Ecotour to the island, participants explore the island by foot. There are 16 miles of trails and over 7 miles of beaches.  The captain and mate can help you plan a route that fits your expectations and time on the island. 

BICYCLES & WHEELED TRANSPORT
If you’d like to bring a bike, you must make a reservation for it or you will have to leave it at the landing. Call or text (843)884-7684 to reserve.  Space is limited. There are no bikes to rent on the island, you must bring your own. Read this first if you’ve never brought a bike to Bulls.

If you have a physical limitation that requires a wheelchair, please call our office before you book so that we can be prepared.  Check out the FAQs for additional information.

DOG POLICY
Pets are not permitted on Bulls Island. Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge is managed for the protection of habitat and wildlife species. Bringing pets into this environment risks disturbance of nests, feeding and breeding, and it could introduce parasites to the island. Pets are illegal anywhere in the refuge.

WEATHER

Weather (thunderstorms or high winds) may impact this excursion. Cancellations usually occur due to lightning, thunder or high winds and we will make sure to reschedule your group if needed. Our general cancellation policies apply unless our experts determine it is potentially unsafe or unwise to venture out. In the event that we decide to cancel due to weather, we will make every effort to call you at least two hours before your departure and help you reschedule or credit/refund the full cost of your trip.

GRATUITY

Gratuity is not included in your tour price. Our guides go above and beyond to make sure you have a fantastic time out on the water! Average gratuity ranges from 15%–25% of your tour cost based on your experience. It is not required, but always greatly appreciated!

NEED TO CANCEL?
