Morris Island

Morris Island is an undeveloped island at the mouth of Charleston Harbor that's only accessible by private boats. This dog-friendly area is a fantastic place for long, off-leash beach strolls, dolphin-watching and hunting for shells with Fido. Put on sunscreen and bring plenty of water for you and your pup. No boat? Check out Adventure Harbor Tours for information on tours. Visit Website

    Morris Island Boat Tour

    Thanks Captain Howie. What a great experience. Sophie loved every minute. She was the only dog on the boat and was treated like the princess that she is. The dog rules at the nearby Charleston beaches are really restrictive and really prevent dogs from enjoying the beach. Morris Island was the welcome exception where she got to run, swim and enjoy herself off-leash without bothering anyone else. I'm really glad I discovered the BringFido site. Thanks.

    Thanks, Captain Howie!

    Adventure Harbor Tours for the win! Dobby liked the boat ride and Capt Howie was very happy to have him aboard. Your dog can go off-leash at their own risk because the current is strong and there are brambles, but if they are a good listener they can have the run of the beach.

    Great dog friendly trip

    This was a great experience for both myself and Duke. He loved feeling the wind in his face and getting loves from all the other passengers! I would 100% do this again!

    Perfect Adventure with our fur baby!

    We started by riding in the boat, shaded area towards the back so my 90lb Pitt could be protected by the hot boat floor. Once we were on the island, we were able to let him off the leash and run until his heart was content. The tour guide was wonderful, the people were friendly, and the island was beautiful!! Remember to bring sunscreen, doggy water bowl, and snacks. We brought a carry-on cooler and it worked out great. SO MUCH FUN!!
