Explore Daufuskie


An Island Suspended in Time

The island is just this … 5,000 acres largely untouched by civilization, in part, because there is no bridge to Daufuskie. Dotting the island are historic sites, long beaches, and an inviting array of attractions, from the curious to the festive. Freeport Marina, just a stroll from the ferry’s Melrose Landing, is a lively spot for casual fare, a market and music on weekends. The whole idea of Daufuskie is to explore as much or as little as you like, at your own pace – by bike, golf cart, by horseback or guided tour.


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.
