Daufuskie Island Barge

The Barge operates based on the High and Low Tides. We load up at Low Tide, and depart as the tide rises enough for the Barge to float.

Due to the ever changing Tides, the actual departure and arrival times may vary. Please give us a call if you have any additional questions or concerns at 843.290.9336 today.

September 2022 Important Update

Broad Creek Marina has forced J & W to temporarily move our loading/unloading point for the Daufuskie Barge to the Bull Island Plantation Landing located at 43 Ulmer Drive in Bluffton.

This will be our temporary loading/unloading area while BCM is rebuilding their concrete pier, which is projected to take eight months.

The best way to access the new landing is to take Burnt Church Road from US-278 to All Joy Road. Take a left on All Joy Road and then take another left on Thomas Lawton Drive.

That road will dead end into Ulmer Drive, and you should take a right on Ulmer Road and follow it a short distance to 43 Ulmer Road, where a sign is marked “Bull Island Plantation Landing.”

NOTE: There is room to turn around at the landing.

2022 Barge Schedule

Regular Barge days are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.
