Daufuskie Discoveries shuttles tour-goers to and from Daufuskie Island on a high-speed water taxi that passes through Calibogue Sound and Cooper River in hopes of glimpsing dolphins and other local marine life. Once on Daufuskie’s isolated dry land, day-trippers hop aboard a golf cart equipped with a cargo area, off-road tires, enough room to hold the kids, and the capacity to transform into a mechanical caddy. Island residents packed with local know-how lead guests through the two-hour guided tour for an insightful look at Daufuskie's history and architecture, with sites such as the Silver Dew Winery. Afterwards, the seaborne chaperone will release golf carts on independent voyages, equipped with a map and basic orientation of the island's layout. Its secluded public beaches, deciduous foliage, thick forest of palm trees, and crisp blue waters beckon nature lovers to bask in the wilderness and scribble haikus onto stomachs with sunscreen. After carting around for the day, journeyers meet up with the water taxi a second time for the return trip.

Daufuskie Discoveries

Daufuskie Discoveries creates opportunities to explore Daufuskie Island's lush, historic habitat with customized guided or private outings. An enclosed or open-air water taxi quickly shuttles small groups from Hilton Head or Savannah to the island's three-mile stretch of sandy beach in 30 minutes, with captains tossing out facts about Calibogue Sound and Cooper River. Customers disembark and board their conveyance of choice—golf cart, boat, or shoes—before bursting through the tree line into specific isle regions, such as Bloody Point, which houses the Bloody Point Cemetery and Bloody Point Lighthouse & Silver Dew Winery. Three-hour private cruises skirt the coastline as a guide artfully describes the sun dipping beneath marshes as a hot air balloon deflated by a stampeding herd of storks.
