The ferry service was great - if you are on the DELTA LADY, the boat is great. If you are on the smaller boat, the ride can feel longer. The return was delayed for us. Overall, it's a good ferry service for the price.

We had a great time on this tour - the paddle wheel ferry boat was smooth as silk, and the captain pointed out all sorts of interesting things along the way. We decided on the air-conditioned guided tour - and I am so glad we...More

Highly recommend Daufuskie Island as an activity for anyone staying in Savannah and looking for a nice laid back day. We took this trip using the ferry service that takes off from behind the Hyatt on the river walk. Can’t say enough good things about...More

Enjoyed both the ferry ride and the self-guided golf cart tour but want to do it again someday as 2 hours is not enough time to see everything on the island. Wish there were more ferry times for more flexibility.

Good morning Please try visiting us in the later part of September At that time we will be cutting back on the Savannah runs. This will allow longer stays on Daufuskie! Thanks Meg

We had a great time; this company handled both our ferry to and from Daufuskie and our golf cart rental while we were there. We had a great time.
