Boating Adventure to Historic SC Barrier Island
Daufuskie Island in South Carolina is a remote barrier island only accessible by ferry or boat. A day trip by boat takes you to a secluded place not frequented by hundreds of tourists, where you will experience the Gullah life, historic places, art galleries, nature tours and walks on a secluded beach.
Author Pat Conroy brought recognition to Daufuskie when he wrote about his own experience as a schoolteacher at the Mary Field’s School in his book, The Water is Wide.
