A narration about the island on the ferry ride over would be helpful. DEFINITELY a better map and signs along the way!! We loved our adventure but it was not easy to find things.
Boat ride to the island was nice. Riding around the island on your own golf cart doing what you want to do was fun.
We have booked through your company two years in a row now and love Daufuskie. We would love to take this trip again in July and every time we visit Hilton Head. It is a bit pricey and some discounts would be great to offer to repeat customers as we had seven people and two golf carts for our most recent trip. Thank you so much!
right on time, very knowledgeable and personable staff
The Ferry ride was the best part of the tour. Not much to see or do on the island. The map was not completely accurate, and while you can't exactly get lost on such a small island, we spent a lot of time backtracking and looking for street signs. We won't do it again.
We enjoyed our daytrip on Daufuskie Island. It was a great adventure for us. The only we have is the fact that we paid $2 each for 3 tickets to the Lighthouse/Winery and there was NO entrance fee. Everyone entered without charge and we were the only ones with tickets....which I still have. I would like to request a refund of $6 for our 3 tickets. It absolutely is not fair that were were charged for something that has no admittance fee. We were booked under Sherry Manley and I can be reached at 864-337-8976 should you need to reach me.
Everything was exactly as advertised. Our golf cat was very slow...many others passed us throughout the day, but we saw everything we wanted to see and still had time for food and drinks...so I guess it was fast enough. People very friendly.
Was disappointed that more shops werent open. Also need better road signs. Get a new map,pls.General store was a flop.
We had a great time. The food was great and the bartender was awesome. He called us by name after just one order. The map was a bit confusing in a couple of areas. The people were very friendly. The golf carts could use a tune up as others drove right by us. The boat ride was great with the information provided by the captain as we went to the island. We did see a dolphin. The owner’s wife and Matt at the rum distillery were awesome. They not only shared info on the distillery, but a lot of info about the island.
The ferry ride was smooth and beautiful, with sighting of dolphins from the moment we left the dock. We greatly enjoyed Freeport Marina and exploring Daufuskie in our golf cart.
The staff was very helpful and accommodating, the ride was pleasant, and boat was clean and comfortable.
We live on Hilton Head and this was our first time visiting Dafuskie. It was the best day I've had in months! We absolutely loved everything about it. Tourism season the ferry rides and golf cart rentals are pricey, but it's worth every cent. I love the peaceful island vibe of this magical place. I wish we could live here!
Good website. Well organized. On time. Nice job. We will be back.
This was our second time visiting daufuskie and it was a wonderful trip. The air conditioned cabin was nice and our 3 kids loved seeing Dolphins. The crew members were very professional. We will be back again next year!
Loved the service and had a fantastic time on the island
The ferry ride/dolphin tour was wonderful. The island tour was very fun searching for everything on the map and riding the golf cart. We liked the historic stuff on the maps best, but some of them seemed like a bust. Couldn't go into some things on private land.
We had a great day of adventure...especially since our map was out of date! There were roads not on the map, landmarks not on the map and lots of gnats and mosquitos. We absolutely loved it! I would definitely advise anyone to do this at least once! The ferry ride over was awesome. Saw lots of dolphines and beautiful homes. I would love to have had a little more info on the ride over about the surrounding houses, history, etc. And a guided tour through Daufuskie would have been nice. All in all a fabulous day!!
THIS WAS A NICE RIDE WITH AN INFORMATIVE CAPTAIN. THE ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT i FELT THAT THE BOAT WAS OVERLOADED. ALSO, THE BOAT WAS SUPPOSED TO DOCK AT DEFAUSKIE AT 5:30 AND DIDN'T ARRIVE UNTIL 6:30.
Its Daufuskie! What else can I say. We come to expect anything when we visit and are always entertained!
Beautiful island, but unfortunately not so "authentic" anymore. Certainly not going back 200 years in time! The boat trip took much longer than announced, both ways. The golf cart was old, rattled a lot and smelled horribly of gas!
Enjoyed the ferry ride and the information given to us on the ride. We would definitely use this service again
