Eco-Adventures in Sea Pines on Hilton Head Island

When Charles Fraser pioneered Sea Pines, he trail blazed a new approach to living—from forming a new community to family life to truly enjoying the outdoors. Over a half a century later, Sea Pines Resort continues his legacy in so many ways—especially with its eco-adventures.

“Our excursions are not just for guests. We encourage locals to go out and explore Sea Pines, too,” said Steve Graham, Recreation Manager for Sea Pines. “And everyone, can go multiple times because you will see something different and inspiring every time.”

Graham smiles as he talks about an American bald eagle sighting he recently had. “It was like seeing an old friend. I was in the [Sea Pines] Preserve and there he was. I hadn’t seen him in five years and there he was. It was just so cool.”

One of Grahams favorite activities is Lowcountry at Dark. Every Wednesday from 6 to 8:30 p.m. you can experience the Sea Pines Forest Preserve in a whole new light—in the dark. This after-hours, wagon ride tour is under the stars and immersed in nighttime dwellers like the night heron and the American alligator.

Seeing one of these Lowcountry creatures and planning that perfect family gathering, reunion or corporate retreat is as easy as 1-2-3.
