The Fun Starts at Freeport

Daufuskie is only minutes from Hilton Head, but it feels like you are going back 100 years in time. Most of the area remains dirt roads, revealing an island that is rich in history and nature with one of the most beautiful and pristine beaches on the East Coast. Daufuskie is a rare find that can only be visited by private boats or public ferries.

At the center of the fun is Daufuskie Freeport Marina! During the day, dockage at Freeport Marina is absolutely free when you eat or drink at the Old Daufuksie Crab Company. Don't forget to stop by the Old Daufuskie Crab Company restaurant for famous deviled crab and more! Here you can enjoy delicious Low Country cuisine, cold drinks including our signature cocktail called Scrap Iron, Live Music, and gorgeous water views.

The Island is home to heritage and native culture best explored through a narrated beautiful boat trip through the esturaries, and marshes aross the Calibouge Sound, or on a guided bus land tour. There are no traffic lights on this Island so it is like taking a step back in time. Self-guided golf cart tours are also available for your lesiure.
