BUlls Island Flamingo Tour

February 24, 2024
Awendaw, SC


The Safari

On Labor Day Weekend 2023, Hurricane Idalia blew up the Carolina Coast bringing with her a pair of American Flamingoes who landed just outside of Charleston, SC on Bulls Island. One bird took off to parts unknown a few days later, however the other bird has decided to stay put. Bulls Island has wetlands full of crustaceans & plants for the bird, known by locals as "Jimmy," to feed on and thrive in the Palmetto State! Bulls Island is also full of wildlife from Birds, to mammals, a healthy amount of alligators we'll have plenty of sightings to tell your friends & family about when you get home. We are surprised he's hung out so long and have decided to capitalize on this rare opportunity!

Fair warning: The hike to the location where Jimmy the Flamingo hangs out will be a 4-mile round trip. There's no guarantee this animal will hang around until our scheduled trip date. We will be checking in with the ferry operator leading up to the trip.

Dress for the weather and a walk through the woods. BYOBBring Your Own Binoculars.
