Calibogue Cruises is the best way to travel to Daufuskie Island, learn fun historical facts about the area, and to see Atlantic Bottle Nose Dolphin! Daufuskie Island is a very beautiful Island accessible only by boat. There are very few cars on the Island. Most of the residents and all tourists travel by golf cart. Exploring the Island is peaceful and very scenic. We also offer guided tours on the Island. Our experienced, colorful tour guides share knowledge and fun stories of the Daufuskie Island. If you have never visited Daufuskie, we highly recommend attending a guided tour first! Our company has been bringing people to and from Daufuskie Island for over 30 years. Freeport Marina is the true gateway to the Island, and we can't wait to meet you. Come visit us soon!

You get ferried to the island on an old paddle boat and the views along the way are good. We saw a few dolphins jumping out of the water. I was surprised that they didn't serve snacks or drinks on the boat--maybe we traveled on...More
