Arts & Seafood Festival Daufuskie Island History and Artisians Excursion
October 12 - October 20$85
Tucked between Bluffton and Savannah and accessible only by boat, Daufuskie is the island on ‘the other side of the river’ and a real gem. This is a trip back in time, providing a glimpse into a fascinating chapter of the Low Country history. Join us for a small-group tour of the ‘undeveloped side’ of Daufuskie with our interpretive guide and USCG Licensed Captain. Visit several one-of-a-kind places: the First Union African Baptist Church, the Praise House, the Mary Field’s School (where author Pat Conroy taught). the site of the Bloody Point Lighthouse and several artisans’ studios. Along the way, you will have the opportunity to stop and observe wildlife and historic points of interest. Daufuskie’s earliest inhabitants included European settlers. Learn about the native Gullah culture with its African and French influences and their struggle to hold on to their 100 year old customs and way of life. S
