Brownsea Island has been renamed Redsea Island for Red Nose Day 2011.
Chucklechomp, one of the charity's Red Nose mascots, has taken over the National Trust-owned island.
He caught the ferry from Sandbanks to reveal the name change to Emma Stokes, visitor services manager for the National Trust.
Ms Stokes said: "Chucklechomp has set a fundraising target of £250 before we can revert our name back...[and] you just can't say no to a giant red nose."
People in the South of England raised £4.3m for Red Nose Day 2010 and since then Comic Relief has funded over 37 projects in the region.
