Protected marina. Easy access. Good service until 7 p.m.

South Harbour Village Marina has one of the best Italian bistro’s [in town] I have ever visited. But it is not walking distance to town which is really no big loss. Southport Marina is closer to town within walking distance and is also a great place. There are a few good eateries in town. If you like golf and total protection from the busy ICW try St. James Plantation Marina just south of Southport proper. All are really nice, you can’t really go wrong.
We are at Lightkeepers Marina, slip T26, at mm 346 in Little River (N Myrtle Beach).

St. James Plantation “IS” a very nice stop. Great walking all over the roads next to the marina and viewing the beautiful homes. Four 18 hole Golf Courses right on the property.
We stayed there in late Nov for a week then left for home for the month of Dec. Arrived back after New Years 2010 and headed for FL. Very secure place to leave a boat, and great monthly rates.

I can’t believe I’ve never stopped here before. We heard about St. James from several friends and had to try it ourselves. All I can say is that this place is not to be missed by cruisers. At $1.05 per foot and a great restaurant, grocery store/deli, easy access fuel dock and very helpful staff …… it’s a steal !!!!! We will stay here for sure on our trip back north and hope to be able to enjoy the Tiki bar in warmer weather.

Cruising News: We really cannot recommend this place except in extremis. We called two days ahead for a reservation. We were told then they had no power cord adapters to lend. The young man on the phone told me what kind we’d need. We bought one at West in Southport. We provided our boat dimensions during the conversation and he repeated them. When we arrived, we discovered they do not have full floating docks, they having floating finger piers. This means one has to spring half the boat. Not a problem except the thumb cleats on the pilings are too high and on the wrong side. Then there is the dockhand who grabs your lines and starts securing the boat with out regard for instructions from the helm. Then there is the information you have just been put in a slip that has too little water for your draft at low tide…”but it’s soft mud…so it’ll be okay.” Then there is the discovery that the young man on the phone has told you the wrong kind of power cord adapter. Then when we arrived in the office the two men there carried on a desultory conversation for nearly two minutes without greeting us. When I pointed out the problem with the adapter, I got the three most hated words in the English language “sorry about that” followed by “I’m glad your not pissed about it.
” (When steam was coming from my ears.) When we were given the slip agreement to sign, I needed my legal counsel. Turns out it appears it’s not truly a marina. It seems to be a dockominium and some portion of your transient fees apparently go to the owner of the slip. Which may explain why we were shoehorned into an unsuitable slip when there were hundreds of feet of
(unsold?) easily accesed deep water docks available. When we asked what they proposed we do for heat on the coldest night of the year so far, they suggested we run our genset in the slip. They said, “there’s nobody here to bother.” However we later discovered the boats both sides of us were occupied. Nice grounds, completely indifferent operations.

We are just leaving St. James and want to pass on a good review, very nice stop, great biking, diesel $2.20 (including all taxes) dockage $1.05/ft with Boat US discount.

As you mention it is a really nice stop, very reasonable for the area but not much of a provisioning stop unless you get a rental car.
