It was a day trip - you take the Daufuskie ferry and get wonderful views of the marshes, Spartina grasses/oyster beds, Sea Pines lighthouse, Tybee Island via Broad Creek meeting the ICWW opening to the Atlantic. Narration by the captain of interesting history and info along the way. On Daufuskie, it was old low country style, small general store, restaurant... More

This was a good way to spend an afternoon for adults, but not too interesting for children. Driving around the island in the golf cart can be boring because all you are looking at is trees. The Rum Company is closed Sunday thru Tuesday to we couldn't visit there. We couldn't find the Wine and Woodwork Place. The winery really... More

We were sold a package at the Marriott Vacation Club by the concierge; he was a great salesperson. The boat trip took about 45 minutes. The speaker system was not working--so much for the guided tour. Upon arrival, we were provided with a not-so environmentally friendly gas-powered golf cart and given a map with over-rated points of interest. We saw... More

I have been going to Daufuskie for over 10 years. I have just read through the other reviews and would like to give future travelers my take on Daufuskie. Firstly, there are no amenities that you are used to having. So if you are expecting a charming, smaller version of Hilton Head, then you are mistaken. There are no Starbucks,... More

First and most important was that we loved Daufuskie Island and our self-guided tour. Fortunately, at the school, we found an alternative map and historical guide which was excellent----Look for it ! Much better than the map given to us by the boat company. Three of us took the boat company package: ferry, lunch and golf cart. The boat was... More

My mother, 2 teens and I had looked forward to going to the island and do some exploring. The ferry ride did take a full hour, it was a pleasant ride. The owner was on the ferry and he was also doing the bus tour for that day. We had opted out and took the option of getting a golf... More

Why did I not review TripAdvisor? Usually my wife and I review either TA or Yelp when planning a dinner or a visit to an attraction. This time, for some reason, we believed the hotel concierge, the sales guy on the HHI corner, and at least two others we asked on HHI. There must be a vast HHI conspiracy on... More

Well I booked the tour for me and my husband because I wanted something to do other than just hanging around the time share. When we went to the Marina the ticket building looked in need of cleaning and painting. Needed sprucing up to say the least. The boat ride was uneventful, except one or two dolphins near the boat....

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
