Morris Island is unspoiled, undeveloped and undeniably the jewel of Charleston Harbor. It is approximately 4 miles of barrier island paradise, and you can't get there except by boat, helicopter, hot air ballon, whatever. But thats the idea! Solitude!
But thats only part of the charm. Since Morris Island is undeveloped, there's only a fraction of the people visiting there than any of the other public beaches nearby, making it the finest shell hunting beach in Charleston. Whether it's sand dollars and conch shells, or the thrill of finding that perfect shark's tooth, you'll find more goodies on Morris Island than anywhere else.
You''ll probably see dolphins, too.
Join us on this 2.5 hour excursion. You never know, you might even find civil war relics, old bullets or even a pirates treasure- Arghhhh, which of course you'll have to share with us (think of it as our commision), or else it's Davey Jones' locker with you, matey. (Didn't Davey Jones sing for "The Monkees"? Why does he have a locker? Why are pirates constantly threatening each other with this?)
Not only is the scenery wonderful, but you'll see you share of birds, critters on the shore and everyone's favorite ocean creatures, the Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin.
Tickets are non-refundable unless the event is cancelled by Adventure Harbor Tours. No shows and late arrivals will not be rescheduled but you may reschedule a tour up to a day prior to departure.
While Morris Island is spectacular, it's not without its hazards . Stay out of the dunes, both for the sake of minimizing erosion and the effect on the wildlife, but more importantly for your feet! The interior of Morris Island is filled with brambles, sticker bushes, catcus and the occasional varmint. Also, there are no lifeguards anywhere out on the island, so swimming should be done elsewhere. As a matter of fact, the currents can be quite strong around Morris Island, so care is urged in water any deeper than your knees.

In December, Pegasus Charters offers the "Original" Charleston Sleigh Ride. Started in 2008, we depart from the Ripley Light Marina in Charleston upon the Charleston Explorer. We cruise for 1.5-2 hours listening to Christmas music & stories about Charleston's Christmas traditions. We provide hot chocolate to enjoy during the trip. Feel free to bring along a cooler with your own beverages and/or snack. Perfect for couples and families looking for a festive holiday outing.
THIS IS NOT A HOLIDAY LIGHTS TOUR. However, we know that viewing holiday lights is a high priority to our customers and we will travel along the Ashley River where the private homes in Charleston are located and then down the Intracoastal Waterway through James Island where we have a much better chance of seeing holiday lights. Be aware, we have no control over how people decorate their homes.
The Charleston Explorer is a covered vessel with restrooms available on board. Coolers are allowed on board if you wish to bring along additional drinks. Alcohol is allowed. No glass bottles please. We reserve the right to switch to a smaller vessel, The Inlet Scout, if appropriate.
