Overview

Remote Daufuskie Island is accessible only by boat and remains largely undeveloped, despite its fame as the setting of Pat Conroy’s novel “The Water is Wide.” A guided tour makes the trip a cinch—this package includes round-trip ferry tickets, plus transportation between island attractions such as the First African Baptist Church and Mary Fields School, all visited with the benefit of commentary from your guide.

Great tour with knowledgeable tour guide who really took his time showing us around. I enjoyed the fun boat riding a golf cart around the island. It's definitely an interesting place to visit.

Our captain and guide is the first female ship captain I have ever encountered! She was fantastic in steering the boat to Dafuskie Island. She was just as knowledgeable in recounting the history of the island and its Gullah cultural roots. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and appreciate all the good story telling. We definitely will return to Dafuskie Island for another tour.

The guide was very knowledgeable and kept things fun. The visit to the indigo shop was interesting. The visit to the historic church and reading of the Gullah Bible was moving. I would recommend this tour.

Andy's history narration and discussions. He is very knowledgeable and personable. Boat ride was nice. He would stop when Dolphins were sighted. A very enjoyable experience. Nice Island, but I wouldn't want to live there.

Andy Kennedy was our guide and had a wealth of history to speak of. The disappointment was nothing was open and it would have been nice to speak or see some of the people that live on the island to hear there thoughts.
