We crossed to Daufuskie Island on a small boat piloted by Charley Thorn. He was very knowledgeable about the sights we passed from the water. When we landed on the island he drove us in a golf cart to various historic locations, Gullah homes, an historic school house and church and a couple of studios of local artists. We had... More

I had read the reviews about Daufuski Island and they were very mixed and we decided to go anyway. Everyone has a different idea of what is fun and our day could have been described as comedic. We booked a full day tour with Calibouge tours for $133 for two with parking. That includes the boat ride, golf cart rental... More

We went with another couple and opted for the golf cart tour. We wanted to learn about the Gullah history on the island.The ferry ride over was nice & the captain was very informative. Buffet lunch that was included in the price was average. One person in our party has a gluten allergy and the only thing she could eat... More

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
