Heat wave hits Daufuskie Island and we are ready!

With the sudden heat wave (or, what Southerners call “June” and “July”), islanders and tourists alike are wondering if it’s really worth it to go outside.
Tour Daufuskie is here to say, of course it is!  Why hole up in the AC all day when you can cool off in the water with the help of a stand-up paddleboard or a kayak?  With sunrise or sunset tours, as well as rentals offered every day, Tour Daufuskie makes it easy to get out, explore and cool off.

Tour Daufuskie’s New Kayak Rental Location

Tour Daufuskie not only offers world class guided kayak tours, but also offers kayak & paddle board rentals.  We now have two locations that our kayaks can be rented out from. Our first and primary location is down behind the Melrose on the Beach restaurant. If you step behind the pool, you will see our “kayak shack” where our kayaks and stand-up-paddle-boards can be found. From there, customers can paddle out from the beach and see the eastern side of Daufuskie facing Hilton Head’s South Beach and Harbour Town.  There is even a sandbar that pops up at low tide that paddlers can stop to rest on and enjoy!  Who wouldn’t love to pack a picnic and relax with great views of Hilton Head, Daufuskie, and Tybee all from one location?

Our newest location for our kayak rentals is at the public dock where Marshside Mama’s is located.  Here, paddlers can navigate their way through the rivers and salt water marsh creeks.  This western facing side of the island will allow kayakers to catch some the most unbelievable sunsets on earth!  If you would like to launch a kayak from your own desired location on Daufuskie, that is no problem! For a delivery fee of $40.00, Tour Daufuskie will bring your kayaks, paddles, stand-up-paddle boards, and life jackets directly to you!  Give Tour Daufuskie a call at 843-842-9449, or email us at TourDaufuskie@gmail.com when you are ready to plan your next Daufuskie Island outdoor adventure.
