This was a bundled deal, ferry, buffet lunch and golf cart rental for the afternoon. We had a blast! Lots of wildlife including fox squirrels and alligators... BIG alligators!

I read the negative review of the tour and decided it all depends what you want. If you want to vacation in a place with manicured golf courses and walking trails, a variety of shops and nice restaurants, don't go to Daufuskie Island. Now, I am not against all that. I just happen to like variety and Daufuskie offers something... More

This is worth a one time adventure. I think most of the negative comments could be from those that take a golf cart. We took the tour for the same price and I'm sure it was 10 times better. Seriously, ask any that did the golf course, where does John Mellencamp live or the story about the ghost in the... More

Booked this day trip a day before with Calibogue Cruises Tours & Adventures. The boat ride over on the boat - Calibogue - was rather nice. The weather was perfect, no sun/cloudy & breezy. The buffet at Old Daufuskie Crab Company consisted of baked chicken, sausages with onions, corn, mac and cheese, lima beans, rolls, banana pudding, choice of tea... More

My daughter and I too this trip together and loved every minute!! We went on a Sunday afternoon and the place was hopping! There was a band in the pavilion all afternoon right by the outdoor bar. We had a good fish sandwich then headed off on our golf cart for an adventure of finding the historical places, getting lost... More

We went over to Daufuskie via the Calibougie Ferry-the only way anymore. First off, island itself is eerie. Second, half the shops and places you read about on line are out of business. Crab company's got a great outdoor bar and live music- that's it. Can buy random spartina bags in general store half off. To eat, go to Bloody... More

Of course no one can control the weather, but we froze our butts off on the ferry trip over to Daufuski island and it was just as cold once there riding around on the golf cart. Speaking of the golf carts.....way over priced, I've rented new cars for a better rate than these slow well used carts. The map they... More

With a weather forecast of drizzle and wind, it was not going to be a beach day, so we opted to go on the self guilders golf cart tour. This included round trip tix via the broad creek marina, a 10 buck lunch voucher and a golf cart. Total cost 158. The boat trip was very nice. About an hour.... More

This seemed like a good idea at the time but what a waste of time and money. 7 of us (two families) went for a short day tour. The captain was pleasant and informative. Most of the sites you see on the way over from Hilton Head are private or off limits when ou get there. We rented golf carts... More

Booked to go out for a day trip from Harbourtown Hilton Head Island. Cost of round trip $29.50pp which was good value as it was a pleasant 30 minute boat trip both ways on a comfortable boat, saw plenty of wildlife - birds and dolphins. We elected to rent a golf buggy to explore Daufuskie at $30pp ($60 for a... More
