    8/5/16- Marina has been dredged. Nothing less than 8 feet throughout. This is by far one of the premier resort marinas on the East coast. Very professionally run and staffed. That free bottle of wine is a classy touch. Outstanding restaurants and shopping all over HH Island. Miles of bike trails and great beaches and swimming pool.

  • A Good Visit to Shelter Cove Marina, Hilton Head, SC, AICW Statute Mile 564


    Shelter Cove is located in a man-made cove on the southeastern shores of Broad Creek in Hilton Head Island near creek markers #22 and #23. Broad Creek departs the Waterway on the eastern shore of Calibogue Sound just as the Waterway turns west into the Copper River. Our thanks to Dick Lawson for this review.

    Spent 4 nights here this past month. This is a beautiful and very well run marina. It is large and slips can be either close to the “action” or close to the marina office/store and showers. Regardless, one of the dock boys will show up in a golf cart to deliver you to your destination. Within walking distance there are several very nice restaurants and other shops. Transportation is also provided to the supermarket, or to the beach. Location is several miles off the ICW, up Broad Creek, and, as the name implies, it is very sheltered. Look forward to a return trip.

    Harbor Town Yacht Basin, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, lies just off the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway on Calibogue Sound, below Statute Mile 565 at Marker 32, right in the heart of The Sea Pines Resort.

Located in the heart of The Sea Pines Resort and on the Calibogue Sound, this full-service marina offers everything: shopping, dining, entertainment, watersports, fishing charters, cruises, and much more.

    C30A8407 (1)
    The Harbour Town Yacht Basin was built in 1969 by legendary founder, Charles Fraser. Modeled after a famous harbor in Portofino, Italy, Harbour Town Yacht Basin was designed to attract visitors while preserving the natural beauty of the landscape. This included preserving the Liberty Oak, which was incorporated into the layout of the marina in lieu of building more slips. Centuries old, the Liberty Oak has stood as a symbolic landmark for wedding venues and concerts, but the most iconic image of the yacht basin is the Harbour Town Lighthouse. Constructed the same year as the marina, the lighthouse has welcomed visitors to one of the most beautiful and unique places on earth while offering one-of-a-kind views.

    Harbour Town Yacht Basin is an intimate marina that offers over 100 docking slips where visitors can dock nightly, monthly, or even for a lifetime.

  • FOCUS ON Windmill Harbour Marina, AICW Statute Mile 558


    Windmill Harbour Marina, Hilton Head SC

    Windmill Harbour Marina, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, is located hard by the southwesterly mouth of the Waterway’s passage south down Skull Creek, on the shores of Hilton Head Island, south of marker #27.

    Welcome to Windmill Harbour Marina, situated on the northwest coast of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. We are located on the Intracoastal Waterway, just ½ mile south of the Pinckney Island Bridge at mile marker 558, 500 yards south of channel marker 27, and ½ mile north of channel marker 29 in the Calibogue Sound. The marina’s 15.5 acre harbour boasts 258 boat slips, offering many for short or long term rental or sale. Transient dockage is available including dining privileges at the Yacht Club, laundry, restrooms and showers, competitively priced fuel and a pump out station. Our remarkable harbour offers a safe, tide free haven protected by a lock system directly off the Intracoastal Waterway. The Windmill Harbour Marina lock is 75′ long by 19′ wide. Hours of operation are 0800 to 1900 by harbour master or 24 hours by yachtsmen with a keycard. We monitor channel 14 VHF and our phone number is 843-681-9235.
    One of only three private locked harbours on the east coast, Windmill Harbour Marina offers an unparalleled combination of convenience and security…the safest place to keep your yacht.

    Windmill Harbour initially began in 1981, the founding company chose a Southwestern style featuring an adobe look and a large windmill at the entrance.  This design, however, was not embraced by the community. In response, the founders removed the windmill and the land plan changed to a mix of single-family homes, townhomes and condominiums in a more acceptable southern traditional style, similar to residences found in Charleston. As Windmill Harbour began to take shape, more and more homes were built in that style. This led to the evolution of the Charleston Lowcountry look one sees in Windmill Harbour today.
    Windmill Harbour is home to a variety of different boaters. From small center console fishing boats to large offshore sport fishing boats, fertile fishing grounds are nearby. A significant fleet of Harbor 20s engages in class racing and there are numerous cruising and sailing activities including the Calibogue Cup, Harbour Town Cup and Ocean Challenge.

    One of the most important assets of the community is the marina and its unique harbor. The harbor is composed of 15.5 acres and houses more than 255 boat slips and is the largest harbor on Hilton Head Island by nearly a hundred slips. The lock was constructed to create a protected harbor from the weather and the changing tides. It was only the second lock existing on the eastern seaboard at the time. The lock is operated with the gravity flow of water, electricity and hydraulics. As complicated as it may appear, it is very simple to operate.

    As the marina and neighborhood came together the next step was to give the community a place to gather. Thus the South Carolina Yacht Club was born. The vision was that the club would be populated by the most interesting residents and visitors to Hilton Head Island, reminiscent of those early social gatherings on Hilton Head. This led to the decision which established a club that property owners could choose to join, but were not required to do so, and that would invite membership from outside of Windmill Harbour and Hilton Head as well. More detailed information on the founding of the South Carolina Yacht Club can be found on its website.

    The unique history, breathtaking beauty, meticulous planning and unique harbor have made Windmill Harbour a premier marina community in the Lowcountry. Its vibrancy and growth are a testament to its founders and its residents.

  • Praise for Windmill Harbour Marina, AICW Statute Mile 558


    Windmill Harbour Marina, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, is located hard by the southwesterly mouth of the Waterway’s passage south down Skull Creek, on the shores of Hilton Head Island, south of marker #27. Our thanks to Bob Miller for these kind words for one of our fine sponsors!

    Just wanted to comment on the staff and marina facilities at Windmill Harbour . We kept our 43′ motor yacht there over this past winter (2015-16) and believe there is no better choice in the Hilton Head area. Very professional marina staff and pleasant location. The marina is in a gated community so it is safe and secure, and the marina is protected by a lock system which keeps the water depth constant in the marina. It is home to the South Carolina Yacht Club so many nice boats and activities. They welcome transient boaters as well as those for longer stays. One thing to be aware of is that access to stores and restaurants will require transportation as it is a residential area.

  • Hilton Head Island Wine and Food Festival, March 7-12, AICW Statute Mile 565


    Harbour Town Yacht Basin, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, is home to the Wine and Food Festival in Sea Pines Resort just off the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway on Calibogue Sound.

    .

    Celebrating our 31st anniversary this year, the Hilton Head Island Wine & Food Festival launched three decades ago as part of an island wide promotion to bring visitors and stimulate the island’s tourism industry in the early spring shoulder season. Hilton Head Island was mostly known then as a summer beach and golf destination. A group of devoted wine enthusiasts along with some great island culinary talents started the tradition of the annual Wine & Food Festival serving as the herald of spring. It was a coming out party of sorts, for residents and visitors alike who wanted to shake off winter. And with the help of many hands, the festival grew. From its origin as a one-day three-hour tasting (in a parking lot), the festival has now blossomed into a full week of events surrounding the iconic Harbour Town Yacht Basin at The Sea Pines Resort. On this year’s festival itinerary, you’ll find exceptional wine dinners, educational seminars, a movie screening, the Sip and Stroll, a one of a kind tasting from Banfi, plus the traditional Grand Tasting and well-loved Public Tasting. Our signature event, the original Public Tasting, is one of the largest outdoor tented public wine tasting on the East Coast!
