Your choice….Daufuskie creeks or Daufuskie beach? Where do you want to explore?
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.
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.
