Coastal Expeditions’ St. Phillips Island Ferry was featured on the cover of the January 2021 Southern Living Magazine!

A Southern Migration.

Since 1992, Coastal Expeditions has been leading tours by sea kayak and boat throughout South Carolina with a flagship campus in Charleston.

Like roseate spoonbills looking for new habitat, we migrated part of our flock to the lush palmetto and live oak covered sea islands to find new adventures.

In 2020, we opened outpost in Beaufort, South Carolina to start the St. Phillips Island Ferry and fun dolphin tours from Hunting Island State Park. In 2021, we expanded to a second location at Beaufort Waterfront Park to share the history and wildlife of the area on daily boat tours!

We're a group of big-hearted, nature-loving guides who can't wait to share the beauty of the Lowcountry with you.

"Coastal Expeditions knowledge of barrier islands is unmatched."
-Southern Living Magazine

Explore. Chat. Visit. And come on back, y’all.
