Great tour!
, Dec 2020
Captain Pete was excellent. He was a great guide with much knowledge to share regarding the history of Daufuskie Island. The boat ride was enjoyable with lots to view on the way. Would definitely take this tour again if in the area.
Great Afternoon Tour
, Oct 2020
We had a great afternoon on this tour! Our guide, Captain Pete, was very knowledgeable and personable. The weather was perfect, and Daufuskie Island was an interesting and charming place with a history I didn’t know much about before this tour.
Boat ride to island
, Oct 2020
Learned a lot about the island. Nothing to do in Daufuski but ride around on dirt roads and learn about old plantation or slave living. Very old and virtually empty island now. Absolutely deserted island. A few large homes that no one lives in the rest are old trailers. Tour guide was good. Speed boat ride to island was the most enjoyable....jumping waves and all. Very small and less than 10 people total.
The Captain was very knowledgeable about the Island and did a good job explaining everything

Really educational and informative tour I would recommend it to anyone that visit the Hilton Head area
Thank you Captain Pete!

Captain Pete was our tour guide and boat Captain. Talk about lucky, my wife and I had him all to ourselves. He was a remarkably knowledgeable, erudite guide with a wealth of historical knowledge about the area. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
The Real Gullah

This was one of the most exciting, informative, and culturally inspiring adventures of all times. Pete is a walking encyclopedia. He is truly blessed. We'll be bringing the whole family back to learn of this heritage. Thank you.

Captain Pete, did a great job and it was an informative and fun filled day for our family of four. Learned alot of great facts. Ensure that you bring your own water and things to drink of eat. While there is a big ice chest there was NO water. There are places to buy things once on the island. One note. If doing this during the warm weather and sensitive to sun make sure you ask for a boat with a full Bimini shade.

Beautiful island! Enjoyed the boat ride and history/ guide by Pete. We loved the serene atmosphere of having no noise on the island. Highly recommend the tour and Pete as a guide. So much history and beauty on the island.
