Located halfway between Georgetown and Charleston, SC, Awendaw Creek has been successfully accessed for anchoring by several recent cruisers. On the south side of the Waterway, Awendaw Creek is best approached through its northern entrance which is due south of marker #48 and just west of marker #47 in Harbor River.
We anchored in Awendaw Creek at mile 436. We motored a swing circle and found the charted depths accurate. We dropped right over the 8 foot mark on the chart.
Awendaw was beautiful and without the strong reversing tide we had experienced further south. Despite the wind trailing off, we had no bugs. The river is part of a wildlife preserve and the sounds of every kind of bird call rose from Bull Bay at daybreak. The fishing boys scramble through the anchorage at daybreak but are on plane.
