Explore Bulls Island

How does naturalist Chris Crowley, who makes his living sharing and protecting the magic of Bulls Island, describe this haven in the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge? “It’s a beach. It’s a forest. It’s a pond. It’s an alligator. It’s a dolphin. It’s where the original settlers landed. It’s where indigenous people thrived for thousands of years. It’s an untouched, wild paradise.”

Intrigued? In season, Crowley’s Bulls Island Ferry makes daily trips to the island from Awendaw, so you can walk the Battery at sunrise and eat lunch in a primordial wonderland.
