We had read on several blogs and magazines how a da trip to Daufuskie was a “must do”, but unfortunately it was not what we were told. Our boat ride with May River Excursions was great to and from with a beautiful view of the water. The actual time spent on the island was a huge waste of money. We feel bamboozled to have spent so much $$ for a golf cart and nothing to do for 4 hours. The map was hard to read so we got lost several times. - beautiful beach but nowhere to change and put on your suit - one restaurant was open up in Freeport and it was dirty and ramshackled. We didn’t eat there. - the public restrooms were few and far between…and dirty - the “winery” is a actually a roadside stand - the coffee shop was closed - no shopping - the “lighthouse” is a house / museum…not an actual lighthouse The people of the island are extremely kind and helpful so that was appreciated ! The Daufuskie Distillary was super good but you can only visit once per day, which was hard when we ran out of things to do and wanted to go back while we waited for the boat. Save your money and Don’t fall for this trap!

If you are staying in an area that does not allow gas powered carts,make sure you are clear with these folks before you rent from them. If you tell them after arrival, you are out of luck. It’s a small island and we made the assumption that they would be aware of this constraint since they are in the cart renting business. They would not make the exchange. Also my son in law drove about five feet off the end of the beach access road and got stuck in the sand. These folks pulled it out but charged my credit card $250! Also the lady that showed up to help us was very hateful and explained to us she was busy running the entire business. We still aren’t sure what that was all about. Be careful what you commit to and read the fine print!

I would leave zero stars if at all possible. I don't understand where all of the great reviews are coming from. They must have really low standards or perhaps haven't traveled much in life. The island is a dump of abandoned homes and ships. There's nothing to do. The Rum distillery tour was informative, but definitely not worth a day trip. We rented a golf cart. Many things were closed on a supposed "open and high demand day." We were scheduled to leave on the last boat, but left early - got there at 11 and left on the 2 pm ferry. We couldn't wait to get back to Hilton Head. Save your money. This is a tourist trap.

You get to this Island by boat. They do not have many cars on the island so you have to rent a golf cart to get around.They have their own private beach there which is reall nice.There is a really old lighthouse there and a cemetary there that dates back in the 1800 s. There is a lot of history here.There are a few places to eat there.Really liked this trip.

Daufuskie is a very low tech island which is why I chose it. However, that means it can be difficult to understand what you will need if you are staying on the island and how to transport it from the mainland. Tour Daufuskie knew my needs before I did and when I called to rent a golf cart, they arranged pick up from the docks to the house we were staying at for us and all our luggage and groceries we were transporting as well. I also took a history tour with them while I stayed on the island and the tour guide was knowledgeable and showed us things we had missed for three days on our own exploration. When I ran short on gas mid week, they brought more gas out to our house and fueled the cart for us. I wouldn't hesitate to book again with them.
