In partnership with the City of Isle of Palms, we have developed a series of six itineraries exclusively for Isle of Palms residents. Learn more about the place you call home and how to enjoyably explore it on your own! The outings will depart from the new IOP Public Dock at the Marina.
Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis. Each outing is limited to 15 participants. There are limited number of spots available so please limit your selections to one session so that everyone can participate.
The outings will be free for Isle of Palms residents. Residents will be expected to show proof of residency or proof of ownership upon arrival. Residents will be charged $1 at registration which will be refunded after the outing. Residents that sign up and do not show up for the outing will be charged the cost of the outing ($65). Participants may cancel without penalty at least 48 hours prior to the date of the outing.
