Bulls Island Ferry
If getting to Bulls Island took a days-long journey across land and sea, it would still be just as stunning in its wildness and biological diversity. But its proximity to Charleston—you can wake up in a posh King Street hotel and have lunch in one of the wildest places on the East Coast—makes it that much more surreal. The only way to get to Bulls is via private boat or the official Bulls Island Ferry. Thankfully, the latter is run by the most qualified, dedicated naturalists in the state, via Coastal Expeditions, a local kayak and SUP tour company. There’s nothing touristy about boarding the ferry at Garris Landing and heading across Bulls Bay for a day exploring the island’s boneyard beach, or peddling along the grassy roads of the interior on a bird-watching tour, or in search of the massive alligators that populate Bulls’ freshwater lakes and marshes. Bring sunscreen, bug spray and a sense of adventure.
