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.

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.

Andy was a very knowledgeable tour guide. He provided us with historical and environmental information about the island, its people, events and culture, along with island folklore and tours of several points of interest. It was a very relaxing and informative tour!

Birthday trip to Daufuskie island

Capt’n Pete was Exceptional! His trip was relaxing, entertaining- awesome boat ride, complete with dolphins galore but most wonderful was his incredible knowledge of not just the island but with the people of the island. He is extremely well-versed on every imaginable aspect of life on the island “then And now”! I highly recommend this trip, it made for a very memorable birthday experience for my wife!

The boat trip with the views and stories of Hilton Head, the depth of knowledge Captain has about Daufuskie Island made you feel you were actually there in the 1800’s.

Outstanding Tour of Daufuskie Island.
Patrick_S
, Oct 2021
We've been to Hilton Head many times and done lots of tours and other activities, but this tour of Daufuskie island was frankly the best tour we've ever done here. Capt. Andy was an outstanding guide, who knew the history of the island and the area inside and out. Highly recommended - although you should be in fairly good shape: it's over four hours long and no places (or time) to stop for lunch.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Thank you for your review! We are thrilled you had a wonderful time on this trip with Captain Andy. We appreciate your feedback from the trip as it is a long trip without any opportunity for lunch. We always recommend and welcome bringing water and snacks along! Thank you for the review and we hope to see you on another adventure with Outside.
