35. Statute Mile 403 – who has visited any of the Georgetown SC marinas on the Sampit River, and the principal downtown Georgetown waterfront, particularly Harborwalk Marina and Hazzard Marine. Please give us your impressions of these facilities.
We have spent the last 2 winters in GT, SC and can tell anyone and everyone you will not find a better place in SC to visit. Harborwalk Marina is on the south end of the boardwalk. The Dock master is Chris and his assistant is Steve. Both are top shelf guys that really know the marina and cruisers business. You can walk to most all eat places as you are right on front street when you get off the dock. There is a large park a few blocks away. Also there is Hazzard Marina a bit farther south of HW. Hazzard is the first marina on your starboard when coming into Sandpit River, Reed T. is the dock master. Great haul out service available there. They did our bottom this winter without a hitch and fair price. Chris can put you on great Techs in the area if you require electrical, mech or any other needs. HM is a bit farther away from downtown but you can easy walk it. Both marinas are state of the art new facilities very clean, with floaters. The marine museum is open on front street and is a lot of fun to walk thru. Having spent a lot of time in GT over the past 6 years you just will not find a better group of people to be around. It true small town people, solid as a rock! Tell e’m John Beaver on Forget About It 3 sent you. If you are there in the winter I’ll probably see you there.
We have stayed at the Harborwalk Marina the last two trips South. Nice facility. We like the city of Georgetown as well. We’ve eaten at a couple of the restaurants but at the moment can’t remember the names. Will add them as we head North next week from FL and I look at our logs.
Stayed there [Harborwalk Marina] 4/26 and 427/13. Good floating docks but fixed docks need replacing (waiting on permits to replace with floating). Nice shore facilities, very nice town, some good restaurants (try Limp’in Jane’s and Aunnies), good stores and shops. Grocery will send car but is only a nice walk anyway. Interesting history, take tour and see rice museum. Will stop here again in future.
Stayed at Harbour Walk Marina several time with our yacht club cruises. Great place and right in the historic district for an easy walk downtown. Ate at the Rice Paddy Restaurant, but there are several others close by.

Chris Carroll, manager of the Georgetown Harbor Walk Marina, is a pro at line handling and people handling. A truly historic and gracious stop. Be sure to tour the local museum and have dinner at the Rice Paddy Restaurant. We rate both the restaurant and the marina as among the best on the AICW from Norfolk to Florida.
