Yes the island is scenic and the island is not inhabited, but there is plenty to explore on the island if you can manage a 1 mile walk. The shells, sand dollars, and old fighter plane ammunition are a few things you can see and find on the island. You can get there by charter boat, but I recommend launching kayaks off of edisto island and kayaking over to otter island. The water is very shallow for the most part and it's an easy trip.

We went on the excursion and paid $60.00 for me and my wife on Tuesday August 18th. They drove us out to the island and dropped us off. There was nothing there to do even though they said you can swim and explore. The water to swim in was a mile away. There was nothing to do but wait on the boat to come back and get us. What a farce of a supposed excursion. We love nature but this was a big ripoff. Waste your money if you want to but you will find out I'm telling the Gospel.
