Eight times a year, Coastal Expeditions offers an all-inclusive,  3-day/2-night trip for an in-depth look at the varied habitats within Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge.  

Expert guides lead you through the weekend, creating an experience that is unmatched in service and knowledge.  You’ll see the best birding spots, track bobcats and deer, explore the Boneyard Beach at sunrise and hike alongside alligator-laden ponds.  You’ll learn the history of the island back to the Native Americans and to the present.  This is an immersion in local history, geology, biology and marine science.

Daily excursions include:
Sunrise at Boneyard Beach
Sunset boat cruise around the island
Birding at freshwater impoundments
Beach combing
Extended hikes to see historical sites or significant wildlife
Oyster roast or Lowcountry Boil

Meals are prepared by a Cape Romain NWR volunteer known as Papa Mo, who delivers on a hearty menu of coastal-inspired meals that include trailside picnics, big southern breakfasts, steamed oysters and fresh, local shrimp.

Accommodations are in the Dominick House, a 1920’s manor house located in the heart of the island.

Trip Advisor Reviews

Just outstanding! Our guide/naturalist, Gates was so knowledgeable but he did not make you feel like you were in a lecture, but rather he was sharing his knowledge and excitement. He was assisted by an enthusiastic guide Katie who has a smile that lights up the dawn. The island is so interesting on so many levels and we explored a lot of it. And Papa Mo made sure we were the best fed group anywhere. I don't often write a review, but this experience was so extraordinary that I felt I should.
