Having now been on the tour with Captain Pete, I cannot imagine trying to do this without the guide. Pete was remarkably knowledgeable, cordial and deeply interested in all manner of things connected with not just Dafuskie but the entire region. It was terrific. Also, I cannot imagine trying to visit the island without a golf cart. Really impossible to do without the cart. Although the distances might seem small (a mile here or there), but, added together, the cart got us around to where we needed to go. Captain Pete was our driver and tour guide on the island. A perfect day.
