I felt like we saw the “real” island. Loved seeing the school from the book “the water is wide” by Pat Conroy. Dafuskie Blues was wonderful and so very interesting. I loved seeing the house of one of Pat Conroys students who still lives there today and has a business on the island. Loved the story of the praise house as well.

Great vacation experience - escape from the mainland
Emily_D

This checked all the boxes of my vacation needs: a boat, water, history, nice people, and learning new things. Captain Andy was extremely knowledgeable and you could tell he cared about the island and the people on it. Worth every penny and the the hours involved!

The advertising with this trip is a little deceiving. It was advertised as a “ferry boat” ride to the island. It was not a ferry boat. The captain was very knowledgeable & enjoyed the island part of the tour.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We certainly understand this misunderstanding and will share your feedback with our team to make this adjustment. We appreciate your review and hope to see you again on another trip!

Bad experience

We wentt to site only to learn the boat was overloaded. We thought of calling the coast guard. We did not feel adding us to the trip would be safe or comfortable Very disappointing

This tour is excellent!!

I am so glad I took this tour. Captain Andy was great with the boat and the history of the island, and answered our questions enthusiastically. Make sure you eat before taking this tour, wear bug repellent, a hat or shades, and water on the boat during the warmer months. The tour does stop at a couple of stores on the island, but you will possibly get thirsty before arriving to the island. The boat ride to the island is about 45 minutes. On the way back from island, we saw a couple of dolphins. This was a great hidden island with amazing history. You will not regret taking this tour.

Living History - Truly Memorable!
Benjamin
, Aug 2021
This tour exceeded our expectations. The knowledge of our guide and his personal relationships with the area and people on Daufuskie Island made this so much more then just information - it was living history. From the boat ride, to the golf carts on the island, to stops at local artisans, we experienced something truly special in what is clearly a very special place. Would highly recommend. Be sure and bring water, sunscreen and a hat!
