We understand from other contributors that Leland Oil Company Marina, under a new owner, is steadily making improvements to this very affordable facility and long a source of good fuel prices. We hear, too, that the owner will take time to drive you to nearby stores. Also note that if you have never visited the backwater village of McClellanville, SC, you owe it to yourself to stop here and at least take in the community. It’s like stepping into a time machine that transports you to what most of the Low Country must have looked like 50 years ago. Try it, you might just like it!
Leland Oil Co. is in the process of replacing our fixed wooden docks with new floating docks. Should be ready by March 10 with the utilities in by the 20th. Hope to see some of you soon.
Duane Merritt, Dockmaster
The updates to our docks at Leland Oil Co. are now complete and we are open for business.
We were here a few years ago on Easter. Duane invited us to accompany he and his family to a local restaurant for Easter Dinner. It was wonderful. Another time he gave us a ride to a grocery store.
Now the new floating docks are done…They came out great… Easy access, new power ped3stals Nice wide aluminum float.
What we love about this place is the hospitality, the down home charm of the area for taking a walk. A couple of FRESH seafood stores….(walking distance) This trip we are here in time for softshell crabs.
Check out the 1000 yr old Live Oak tree. The only thing you can hear here……..Nothing! Talk about peace and quiet.
The entrance off the ICW. Stay in the center is the key. We draw 5 1/2′ no prob 1/2 tide.

March 31, Stayed at Leland Oil Company and had a peaceful night! Brand new floating aluminum docks with new pedestals shows a strong desire to cater to more cruisers. Met and assisted dockside upon arrival. The fuel is convenient and the price is competitive. The rest of the amenities are a little Spartan but the walk around the town is spectacular if you like tree and Spanish moss covered streets and classic southern small town homes. A wonderful stay in a working harbor and we will keep coming back.
