Morris Island Lighthouse Kayak Tour Book Now

Built in 1892, the Morris Island Lighthouse has been a fixture in Charleston history and has survived the ravages of war, erosion, hurricanes and time.  After the jetties were built to accommodate shipping lanes in Charleston Harbor, currents were altered and the island that surrounded the lighthouse quickly eroded.  Deemed unsafe to man by 1938, the Morris Island Lighthouse was decommissioned and a lighthouse was built on Sullivan’s Island to take its place.   In 1982, it was named to the National Register of Historic Places.

There is no better way to view it than to paddle by and feel its towering presence.

This 6-hour tour combines history, architectural achievement and sublime beauty and can only be described as awe-inspiring. Leaving from our Folly Creek location by the Crosby’s Dock, we will wind through the estuary on our way to the lighthouse, stopping on a hammock island for lunch beneath the shade of palmettos and live oaks.

Before we set out for adventure, your guide will fit you to your gear and teach you what you need to know to be an effective sea kayaker.  We time this tour with the incoming and outgoing tides to assist us along the way.

This exploration will give us a good opportunity to see dolphins, sea turtles and other inhabitants of the estuary.  Join us for this great paddle to Morris Island Lighthouse and see history from a new perspective.

You can book this as a private tour for groups of 4 or more.
