Overview

Tucked between Hilton Head Island and Savannah, and accessible only by boat, Daufuskie Island is a real gem. This 4-hour Daufuskie Island trip provides a glimpse into a fascinating chapter of Lowcountry history on the undeveloped side of the island. Meet local artisans and learn the rich history of the Native Americans, European settlers, the cotton trade, and the Gullah culture. We encourage you to wear weather appropriate clothing, and bring water, snacks, and sunscreen.

Please be aware: Our tour is completely structured and does not include a stop for lunch.

Captain Pete was amazing. He was very informative and genuine. We had a group of 8 with the youngest being 2. He took his time and made us all feel welcome.

I've been on the Daufuskie tour with Capt. Pete 4 times now and I will be going again and highly recommend it. He does shares similar information each time, because it's important, relevant and factual information. He has a strong respect for the island and the people on it, as well as its history. He takes time to listen and answer questions and is friendly and kind. The tour itself consists of a beautiful hour and a half-long boat ride and about an hour on the island on a golf cart and never feels rushed to me It focuses on the non-affluent part of the island and has stops at a historical church, school, cemetery, homes and people and a couple of stores (which vary depending on the time of year). He's not joking when he talks about the coffee at the old school house - get yourself a cup! Food is allowed on the boat, so if hunger is a concern, feel free to bring a backpack with snacks or a small cooler. There are bathrooms at both docks (on Hilton Head and on Daufuskie), but none on the boat. Be sure to bring layers of clothing, as the ride can be a bit chilly depending on weather and time of day.

Wonderful four hour trip to another world. Captain Pete shared a wealth of information about the island he clearly loves. The trip was absolutely fascinating! Full of island lore and mystery and the heart breaking stories of Pat Conroy’s stay there. And the boat ride was beautiful!
