This is a completely self-guided adventure!
Whether you're a curious naturalist, history nerd, love picking up shells, looking for Megalodon teeth, or just want to sit with your beach chair, umbrella and cooler, you will enjoy this magnificent island.
Depending on tides (and daily tours) we can drop you off to explore Morris Island on your own. We typically recommend a falling tide, so there's plenty of beach, and the tides shift daily, so please call to discuss the best option for your desired day.
This is a completely self-guided adventure, so your Captain will drop you near the Morris Island Lighthouse on the south end. Your group will be on the island for 3-4 hours, and you will arrange the firm meeting time/spot with your Captain at drop off.
This will give you the freedom to explore the uninhabited island and have fun creating your own experience. Many people are looking for whelk shells, shark teeth, and Civil War relics, but we highly encourage leaving nature as you found it, aka no walking on the dunes nor through the grasses and leaving shells where you found them.
Please note, we are unable to return to Morris before the agreed upon pickup time, because this tour is planned around other scheduled tours, so please be prepared to be on the island for 3-4 hours, without any buildings, i.e. stores and restrooms.
DROP OFF/5 Min. PARKING: There is NO long term parking in front of the shop located at 83 Center Street. When driving onto Folly our building will be on the right-hand side of the road just past the Public Boat Ramp. Please be prepared to drop off and pick up your guest in front of the building within the gravel lot *** before the Folly's Best Rentals Ford Bronco, however, do not park in front of the Folly's Best Rentals. If at all possible walk, ride a bike, or rideshare.
2 HR PARKING: If you must park a car for the duration of your activity, please park at the public boat landing. When coming onto Folly Beach, the entrance to the public boat landing will be your immediate right-hand turn after the final folly river bridge. If available, it’s best to park in the spaces immediately to your left after turning into the boat ramp. Please do not park in the trailer spaces (the long ones) at the public boat launch as they give tickets to non trailered vehicles.
Sometimes the landing is full, so parking is free on Folly, but there are some rules you must know. All four tires must be off the street and going with the flow of traffic. You can park anywhere, unless there is a sign specifically stating that you cannot.
