We left from Broad Creek on the Delta Queen Paddle Boat. It was a nice ride over to the island. Arrived at the marina around 11:00. Once on the island you are touring in your golf cart. We had to decide whether to go in the order on the map or “wing it”. We got our golf cart. We had... More

Had a great day exploring the island. The boat ride was very interesting, especially listening to the narrative given. It was extremely interesting to hear about the island's history. Devastation resulting from Hurricane Matthew was evidenced along the way. The golf cart was loads of fun! We were nervous at first about getting lost. Got a different map at the... More

We truly enjoyed the boat ride there and back and our captain was great. The island was nice the golf carts were okay but really not much to do there at all. Food at the small restaurant when you first get there is really disgusting and will give you an upset belly plus you tried to Pawn off 3 beers... More

4 of us rented a golf cart and drove all over the island. We stopped for a fabulous lunch when we got lost.We picked up a few trinkets to take home, visited a black church, the Glass House, the Lighthouse and Museum, a farm, a couple of beaches, a golf course and lots more,

We had a number of couples play golf at Haig Pointe and then dinner at the beach club two different times. Golf was challenging and dinner terrific. One dinner was a buffet and the other was a sit down traditional meal. Both times the food was terrific and the friendly service was outstanding. Pick up the ferry on Hilton Head... More

I spent the night on the island and rented this cute little cottage. It is probably no more than 200 SF with a teeny, tiny bathroom and a kitchenette. The queen sized bed was very comfortable and the window a/c (stuck through the wall) kept the room nice and cool. If you spend the night I recommend getting the golf... More

You get to the island be a paddle boat ferry across the confluence of two rivers. There's a nice view of Harbortown Lighthouse along the way was well as the Haig lighthouse on the island. It's in a gated area, so the ferry might be your only chance to see this little lighthouse. Dolphins were also spotted and even surfed... More

My wife and I wanted to do something different on our vacation to Hilton Head and decided to go over to the island and rent a golf cart and go discovering. Great place to forget about the hustle and bustle of the world around you and enjoy the laid back environment on the island. The restaurants had good food and... More

Ferry boat ride to Daufuskie is worth the price. Saw many dolphins and good narration about the island. We rented golf cars to tour the island. Signage is poor but the island is small so you are never lost for long. Take bug spray as mosquitoes are heavy in some areas. The beach is beautiful and would be wonderful day... More
