Heading to Folly Beach or Sullivan’s Island on the weekend can sometimes be just the thing to help you unwind after a long week. But if you want to get away from the crowds of vacationers and reconnect with nature, take a trip to Bull Island, one of the most secluded beaches in the Lowcountry. On July 17, Coastal Expeditions will offer their Bull Island Beach Drop. The trek begins with a 40-minute boat tour through the saltmarsh estuary to the north end of Bull Island, and because it’s loggerhead season, there is a good chance that daytrippers will see a nest or loggerhead turtle. Once guests arrive at the island, they will be taken on a walk by Bob Raynor, an author and naturalist who does service work for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He will discuss both the cultural and natural history of Bull Island and Cape Romain, one of the only two Class One Wilderness Areas on the Eastern Seaboard. “He is awesome because he really knows the area,” says Heidi Champion, a guide and manager at Coastal Expeditions. “We couldn’t have a better guide.” Guests will also have a chance to swim, explore the beach on their own, and visit the shore bird rookery. The trip will benefit the Sewee Association, a nonprofit group that supports Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge. Those attending are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch, sunscreen, bug spray, a bathing suit, and water to stay hydrated throughout the day.
