We usually stay at Hilton Head’s Harbortown Marina, but decided to check out the more northerly facilities on the other end of Callibogue Sound. Hilton Head Harbor Marina was this year’s experiment and we confess a lack of information had us curious.
Perhaps the reason for so little information is that there is transient dockage only at the fuel dock. The dockmaster said it was 120 feet on the outside and 80 on the inside. Do your math and that’s not many boats if there’s a fat catamaran there — and there were two our visit.
The inside protected marina, we heard, has serious shoaling problems as in zero feet of water at the bottom of the considerable tide.
If you are one of the half dozen transients, you get access to a small swimming pool, tennis courts, adequate showers and laundry.
A big bonus, it seems from reviews we have read, is the on-site Sunset Grille restaurant. It’s reported to be one of the best restaurants on Hilton Head. Google it and you’ll find that it is a destination for foodies.
With a Boat US or SeaTow card, dockage is $1.60 a foot an electric $4 for 30 amp hook up, likely one of the lowest dockage rates in the area.
It was impressively gnatty the early spring night we spent there. I’m not sure if that’s seasonal or a feature of its location on the waterway as opposed to a dredged harbor with less natural surroundings.
Excellent sunrise and sunset views from the fuel dock and low rates are a fair trade for the occasional wake of a passing fast boat. We spent a comfortable night there — superb compared with our rock and
roll night at The City Marina in Charleston, which you will read about in our next report. Stay tuned!
