How to Get to
Daufuskie Island from Bluffton

Offering the most scenic trip to Daufuskie Island, the May River Excursions water taxi takes you through the beautiful creeks and marshes between Bluffton and Daufuskie. The 25 minute, open air ride departs from Historic Old Town Bluffton, a short drive from Hilton Head. Wind through the Lowcountry’s protected estuaries and arrive to a waiting Tour Daufuskie representative on Daufuskie Island.

May River operates a fleet of Carolina Skiffs, capable of bringing you and your luggage to the island. May River runs water taxis to and from the island every day during daylight hours. For day-trippers, the round trip water taxi is $45 per person. They can also bring you to the island for an overnight stay. Overnight rates, starting at $150, include parking and luggage transportation.

The best part? Tour Daufuskie can take care of rentals, tours, and booking the water taxi over with May River Excursions.
