Regarding Church Creek. If traveling South make sure you go way beyond the marker in the middle of the ICW. Cutting short heading into Church Creek will put you aground. Plenty of water otherwise. Anchoring will get you about 12 to 18 feet of water most times.

Anchored here 4/30/13; still the excellent anchorage it has been over the past years.

Anchored there 4/24/13. Anchored just before New Cut Landing. Came in near low tide. Had 7 feet. Considered better than average anchorage but conditions were quiet.

One of our favorites!

Oct 11 Anchored in Church Creek, experience was exactly as previously reported, very quiet night.

spent 2 nights here, 6-11 & 12-10. Very nice and peaceful. Straight off the ICW- East from green 77 at about 487.5mm. Anchored off the small dock- only one. Seems like excellent holding. Beautiful sunrise. This is definately going into our log book as a favorite stop. Would have good protection from SW wind. Otherwise more of a fair weather anchorage.

It is every bit as good as you remember it to be. Depths up to 20’ after entering the creek. Never see anything less than 10’ unless I just get stupid and ignore the charts. With light winds this is one of the most beautiful anchorages in all of south Carolina

Coming north I anchored in Church Creek mile 487 the night before we went through the cut. The current was ripping in the creek (about 2 kts), a cold front blew through that night – quiet a time. Good place for 2 anchors. There’s plenty of water, but as I recall quite a tidal range. Make sure you can’t swing into shallow water at low tide.

Hello,
We anchored in Church Creek last weekend and found it to be a most wonderful experience. Have to admit this is our first time swinging on the hook and I’m thinking we couldn’t have picked a better spot. The water remained above 13 ft through low-tide and we had plenty of swing room for our 40 footer. Thank you for all the wonderful information included in the SC/GA Cruising Guide. It was most helpful to this fledgling cruiser!
