Till his waters have flooded the uttermost creeks and the low-lying lanes,
And the marsh is meshed with a million veins,
That like as with rosy and silvery essences flow
In the rose-and-silver evening glow.
– Sydney Lanier, The Marshes of Glynn
An adventure awaits…
Enjoy the remaining hours of daylight on Hilton Head cruising the Calibogue Sound. As the sun sets behind Daufuskie Island, it casts the Harbourtown Lighthouse in its soft glow, making the local icon its most photogenic time of the day. The bright vibrant green of the summer spartina grass turn almost amber in the sun’s waning light. Dolphins surface and play with one another in the calm waters as dusk approaches.
Your visit to the island isn’t complete without a sunset tour, appreciating the beauty of the marsh and sound. We’ll head out from Broad Creek, making our way down to the Harbourtown Lighthouse and out towards Daufuskie to watch dolphins at play.
