Explore Daufuskie on your own

Your Island of Adventure

If you like doing your own thing on your own time instead of being part of a group, then a self-guided adventure is perfect for you. When you rent a golf cart, most rental services will have the cart waiting for you when you step off the ferry and a team member will tell you a little about the island, give you an island map, and share some personal recommendations. Then, with map in hand, you’ll take off to explore the island going where you want to go and doing what you want to do – even stopping to say hello to little horsey!  You may explore our beaches, visit the island’s historic locations, stop in at the galleries and craft shops, and/or grab some food at one of our unique restaurants. The enjoyable round-trip ferry boat ride and nifty golf cart are the perfect trimmings for a very memorable day on Daufuskie.


As of January 16, 2024, we are no longer under contract with Beaufort County to provide ferry services. We are not accepting reservations at this time.

Please stay tuned for future developments.
