Enjoy the Island
With charters available from Savannah, discover how Daufuskie Island offers a unique and rustic experience for visitors. Tour Daufuskie was founded by Chase Allen, who has lived and worked on the island for 17 years. From speaking with visitors in his gallery The Iron Fish, Chase realized families visiting Daufuskie Island were frustrated that although the island was pristine, underdeveloped, and rich in wildlife, there were no eco-tourism activities offered. And so in 2011, Tour Daufuskie was born. Perfect for families, couples or solo travel, Tour Daufuskie specializes in guided and self-guided Daufuskie Island history/artisan tours, beach packages, golf cart rentals, kayaking tours & rentals, eco-tours, horseback trail and beach rides and also Sallie Ann Robinson’s renowned Daufuskie Island Native Gullah tours.
