Captain Doreen made the whole trip exceptional, she was extremely knowledgeable about the island and the people who call it home, it’s a great trip that takes about 4 and a half hours including the boat ride back and forth. It’s a must do trip!

Our captain and guide is the first female ship captain I have ever encountered! She was fantastic in steering the boat to Dafuskie Island. She was just as knowledgeable in recounting the history of the island and its Gullah cultural roots. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and appreciate all the good story telling. We definitely will return to Dafuskie Island for another tour.

The guide was very knowledgeable and kept things fun. The visit to the indigo shop was interesting. The visit to the historic church and reading of the Gullah Bible was moving. I would recommend this tour.
