Meet the faces of Tour Daufuskie LLC!
Owner – Chase Allen has lived and worked on the island for 15 years and is more known as “The Iron Fish Guy” than the owner of Tour Daufuskie, LLC.
After 11 years speaking with the visitors at his gallery, The Iron Fish, Chase realized families visiting Daufuskie Island were frustrated that although Daufuskie was pristine, underdeveloped, and rich in wildlife, there were no eco-tourism activities offered. Finally, in 2011 Chase hired a like minded outdoors enthusiast who had the time to run the day to day operations, thus establishing Tour Daufuskie, LLC. Today, Tour Daufuskie remains the only locally owned and operated eco-tourism tour company on Daufuskie Island.
Managing Director and Lead Guide – Anna stepped on as Managing Director and Lead Guide of Tour Daufuskie in June. Growing up on Hilton Head Island, Anna has frequented Daufuskie for many years. After spending four years as an elementary school teacher, Anna and her husband, Matt, decided they wanted a change in life. They took a year off, traveling over 7,000 miles around this beautiful country in their self-built camper. However, it was the little island across the water that enamored them. And it is here that they now call home.
Anna continues to have a passion for education. Paired with a great admiration for the outdoors, she is able to cultivate a shared love and respect for Daufuskie’s natural beauty, history and culture with those visiting the island.
Every day is an adventure. It is an opportunity to learn, grow and better understand the natural wonders around us. It is with this spirit that the Tour Daufuskie team operates.
Through Tour Daufuskie, we hope to give visitors a local perspective and foster a sense of unplugged appreciation.
