Other Lighthouse Information:
The Sand Island lighthouse is a sister to the Morris Island lighthouse, near Charleston, SC. The Sand Island lighthouse was on a narrow strip of land that was once 400 acres. As the years went by, the land around Sand Island light slowly eroded away. The extensive restoration of the island was completed in the fall of 2011. To visit the lighthouse maybe charter a boat with Action Outdoors
or Captain Jim Hall
The Lighthouse Hunters Experience:
We haven't seen this lighthouse yet because the trip we booked with Captain Jim Hall in March 2004 got cancelled due to the high winds over several days. So close.
