Overview

Remote Daufuskie Island is accessible only by boat and remains largely undeveloped, despite its fame as the setting of Pat Conroy’s novel “The Water is Wide.” A guided tour makes the trip a cinch—this package includes round-trip ferry tickets, plus transportation between island attractions such as the First African Baptist Church and Mary Fields School, all visited with the benefit of commentary from your guide.
  • Daufuskie Island tour from Hilton Head Island
  • Get off the beaten track exploring the undeveloped island by golf cart
  • Learn about the island’s history from your guide along the way

Captain Pete Can't Be Beat!

Captain Pete was soooooo knowledgable and seemed to know all the residents of Daufuskie. The tour is highly recommended but if you go in einter, be sure to bundle up. The "water is wide" and it's also COLD!

Captain Pete pointed out these white pelicans sitting alongside their smaller brown cousins and commented how unusual it was for them to let us get as close as we did for this picture. Overall, the trip was very informative and created wonderful memories. Highly recommend this to tour.

Bring your warm clothes and a box lunch
Joseph_B
, Nov 2021
The description doesn’t tell you that you will be riding in an open air boat, It was extremely chilly and we were not prepared for it. Everyone on the tour was cold, we should have been warned to bring warm clothes, despite outside temp. Also, NO FOOD available. 1200 trip, thought there would be opportunity to get something to eat. This should be stressed. An hour and half ride to island, would have been nice if in description it was encouraged to bring a box lunch or snack.Andy, guide, did a nice job, and was very knowledgeable. I would have liked to go to other areas of the island as well.
