Explore windswept islands, wildlife refuges, and picturesque neighborhoods

The Sea Islands stretch along the southeastern shores of the United States, a string of barrier and tidal isles that carve South Carolina’s Low Country into a maze of waterways and wilderness. Sail among these islands during a short, enriching getaway, discovering sites that tell the history of South Carolina and exploring wetlands, wild beaches, dunes, and maritime forests in parks and refuges along the coast.  

  • Explore Beaufort, where antebellum mansions and historic churches and schools tell stories of the past. 

  • Watch for birdlife, alligators, and loggerhead turtles on St. Phillip’s Island, a pristine wilderness area once owned by conservationist Ted Turner. 

  • Venture to the ruins of historic plantations at Botany Bay Plantation Wildlife Management Area, and discover unspoiled beaches and coastal forests. 

  • Coast in a Zodiac along the shores of Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge, keeping an eye out for dolphins and seabirds.
