Self-guided tours afford the opportunity to select your own route, meaning you can visit the lighthouse you've been eyeing but opt to avoid the historic home of the man who first climbed it. Pave your own way with this Groupon.
$99 for Four-Hour Self-Guided Golf Cart Tour of Daufuskie Island ($199 Value)
After being ferried to Daufuskie Island, duos pile into an E-Z-GO ST Sport golf cart for a four-hour tour. They drain the full tank of gas as a provided map guides them toward a double-tiered stone fountain spouting jets of water or a historic white church with a picturesque steeple.
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.
