Amazing ferry ride to Daufuskie. I've taken several tours and ferries in the past, this company blows the others away. Great captain and staff. Great ferries - new, clean, comfortable. The Palmetto Merchant was wonderful. I'd never use a different company.

Great day exploring Daufuskie - we rented one golf cart for older family members and mopeds for the younger ones - it was a blast! Recommend reserving the mopeds and golf carts a week ahead, if possible as Cooper River Landing can get busy. Also...More

People are great, service is easy to use. I recommend taking the trip from the foot of the bridge just off Hilton Head Island to Daufuskie Island for usually a very smooth ride and beautiful sunrises.

The trip is quick and easy. The boat is comfortable. You can park at the ferry landing. Best thing is the very helpful and friendly staff. They take special care with your luggage. All of them had a smile.
