We had a wonderful time visiting Morris Island - be sure to select an Eco Tour from Charleston Outdoor Adventurers!

Enjoyed the sort 1/4 miles walk to the beach. Did not care for all the graffiti along the way. Nice view of lighthouse from beach. Saw dolphins swimming by. Again graffiti takes away from the natural beauty of the beach area.

Absolutly excellent! A must do at sunset. I am a local and it is not just for our wonderful tourist. Worth every penny if you love history, water, ecology, beach, shells, education and sunsets. Just loved it. The staff are knowledgeable and pretty awesome!
