The ferry ride was great. The boat was comfortable, and the captain provided the right amount of info about the area. The problem was that we were not told about how many of the island's sites were closed on Monday when we made the reservation.

We had a great trip to Daufuskie Island and enjoyed touring the historic sites around the island driving the golf cart. Everything was waiting for is when we arrived on the ferry.
