Daufuskie Island History and Artisans Tour

Quick Details

Catch a Glimpse of a Fascinating Chapter of Lowcountry History

Tucked between Hilton Head Island and the mainland — accessible only by boat — the island on “the other side of the river” is a real gem. Take a trip back in time and get a glimpse into a fascinating chapter of Lowcountry history.

Join us for a small-group tour, usually limited to six people, of the undeveloped side of Daufuskie with our interpretive guide and USCG licensed captain.

Visit several one-of-a-kind places:

  • The First Union African Baptist Church
  • The Praise house
  • The Mary Field’s School where author Pat Conroy taught
  • The site of the Bloody Point Lighthouse
  • An artisans studio
  • Perhaps a chance to meet some native ‘Fuskie islanders

Hear about the rich history of the Native Americans, European settlers, cotton, and slaves… as well as the Gullah who remain and locals who have chosen to make this remote island their home.
