Stand-Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) with Tour Daufuskie

Stand-up paddle boarding (SUP), is a fast growing sport among people that have a passion for the water.  It is a relaxing workout that combines core strength with arm strength, and balance.  One of the best times to go, is in the early morning hours while the wind is still calm and the water is like glass.  Tour Daufuskie offers SUP tours that last 1.5 hrs – 4 hrs. The tour will take place off of the remote beach in Melrose or in the river depending on the weather and/or preference.  No experience is necessary.  Paddle boarding tours are for ages 12 and up.   Be sure to schedule your tour in advance by calling Tour Daufuskie at 843-842-9449!

Three benefits to a guided Daufuskie Island kayaking trip

Are you nervous about your first paddle in a kayak?  That’s okay and it’s a good thing to be cautious because there is a lot to know about Daufuskie Island’s tides and weather patterns!  Here are the three benefits of our guided kayaking trips:

1. Our guide has many certifications that will put your mind at ease when being placed in the same boat as them.  Let us plan the weather and tides so you don’t have to worry while on vacation!

2. If you get tired, your guide can help you out with the paddling.

3. Small children can be placed in the same kayak with the guide as well! The two person kayaks are also available for customers and not just the guide with the customer.

On Daufuskie Island, we are surrounded by amazingly beautiful landscapes.  We have the unique opportunity to catch both the sunrise on the eastern side, and the sunset on the western side every day(weather permitting of course).   We offer guided kayaking and paddle boarding tours for the group or family who simply can’t let these naturally amazing moments slip by unnoticed.

Melrose Kayaking Tour Daufuskie Island

For the sunrise tours, we like to launch off of the beaches of Daufuskie Island from either Melrose or from Bloody Point.  Melrose is also convenient for Haig Point visitors & members who can simply take a beach walk to our launch(call for directions if needed).   It’s pretty amazing to see the aquatic life waking up for the day while the sun is rising in a distance.

Our sunset tours are equally as amazing and slightly more popular because you don’t have to be an early bird to participate.  For this paddle tour, we launch our kayaks from the Daufuskie Island public landing aka Marshside Mama’s Cafe.  From here we paddle in to the creeks while the sun sets in the west.

Of course, we also offer guided tours throughout the day but these are no doubt our most popular times.  Don’t leave Daufuskie without experiencing one of these great opportunities.
