Wild South Carolina Escape: Beaufort and the Barrier Islands

About this Trip

There’s so much to see in this world, but not every must-visit destination requires a passport. Majestic windswept islands and wildlife refuges are closer than you might think. The Sea Islands, which stretch along the southeastern shores of the United States await to be explored from your home base, the 62-guest, National Geographic Sea Lion.  Over six days, travel along a string of barrier and tidal isles that carve South Carolina’s Low Country into a maze of waterways, wilderness, and unspoiled beaches. Watch for birdlife, alligators, and loggerhead turtles on St. Phillip’s Island, venture into the ruins of historic plantations at Botany Bay Plantation Wildlife Management Area, and coast in a Zodiac along the shores of Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge where you may spot dolphins. Wrap up your trip with a walk through Beaufort's historic streets of mansions, churches, and schools—brimming with stories of the past. 

From $3,990 per person plus airfare
