Cape Romain Specialty Excursion | Oct. 19 & Oct. 24 Book Now

October 19 from 4:45pm-8:15pm: Sunset in the Boneyard

This is the first time we are offering this adventure to see the Boneyard on Bulls Island as the sun goes down. This experience is similar to our sunrise expedition to the Boneyard, just at sunset instead. We’ll go to the dock on Bulls Island and be transported across the island until we reach the beach. We’ll hike to the Boneyard to set up before the sun sets and experience the golden hour on the beach.

October 24 from 5pm-9pm: Milky Way Beach Drop

We’re headed out to Bulls Island at sunset for a special evening beach drop.  The dark skies within Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge coupled with a new moon will offer us a spectacular look at the Milky Way galaxy.

The expedition begins with a sunset ecotour through Cape Romain with naturalist guides.  At Bulls Island, we’ll make a beach drop landing. Once you’re on the island, the experience is yours to create.  If you’re a photographer, set up your gear and get ready for the Milky Way to appear in the sky.  If you’re there for the stargazing, find your special spot, spread a blanket and enjoy the experience. After a few hours, the ferry will pick everyone up and head back to the mainland, with just the light of stars reflecting on the water to guide the way.

(Book these trips before our entire staff takes all of the spots.)

The tour is happening at high tide, so please plan accordingly.  Wear shoes that you don’t mind getting wet and pack your gear in waterproof bags. The Boneyard will not be accessible during this tour.  The insects can be bad this time of year, so we suggest that you dress like you’re going hiking (hiking pants, long-sleeved shirt, hat).
