Explore Daufuskie Island on a Boat Tour
Catch a glimpse of a fascinating chapter of Lowcountry history. Daufuskie Island (pronounced “Da-Fus-Kee”) can only be reached via personal boat or ferry. It is surrounded by oceans, making it a popular paradise with a rich, well-documented history. Come experience a side of Daufuskie Island that many travelers often overlook.
Tucked between Hilton Head Island and Savannah, Daufuskie Island is a real gem. Visit several one-of-a-kind places, including the First African Baptist Church, the Praise House, Mary Fields School (memorialized in Pat Conroy’s “The Water is Wide”), and the site of the Bloody Point Lighthouse.
Tour studios and meet local artisans at Silver Dew Pottery and The Iron Fish, home to Martha Stewart American Made winner Chase Allen. Learn the rich history of the Native Americans, European settlers, the cotton trade, the Gullah people, and the locals who have chosen to make this remote island their home.
Your tour includes a boat cruise from Hilton Head Island with a USCG licensed captain and interpretive naturalist/historian guide, golf cart, light snack, and refreshment.
