    Harbour Town is a great stop lots to do, easy access to all needs, Only problem is at low tide there are some real depth problem.

    Last visited in April. Great dockmaster thoughtfully gave us a slip that would protect us from forecast high winds during the night. Easy in and out. Great shopping and food. Great people watching in beautiful surroundings.
    Favorite stop.

    Harbourtown Yacht Basin – Hilton Head, SC, ICW mm 565. This is one of the finest marinas on the East Coast. We love this stop because it is a beautiful marina with excellent personnel, services, restaurants, shopping, golf, etc.. It is very convenient to the Atlantic Ocean and is directly on the ICW. It is our favorite launching point for going outside to Fernandina Beach, Florida. Or, if necessary, staying on the ICW is also a very workable option from this location.

    Subject: More on Harbour Town Yacht Basin
    Cruising News: We spent a very pleasant night at Harbour Town Yacht basin this past weekend, and we can enthusiastically second all the positive comments that have been posted here before — beautiful place, friendly and professional staff, great service. And that complementary bottle of Chardonnay was a welcome and unexpected treat! Cruisers should be aware, though, that the water in the entrance channel is a bit skinny, and becomes even more so just inside the marina basin. We arrived about 45 minutes or so before dead low tide and, with our draft of 4 feet, found about 3 feet of water under our keel in the entrance channel. This dropped to less than 2 feet of water clearance just inside the marina, roughly alongside the marina office, and then improved again to over four feet throughout the rest of the marina. Cruisers whose boats draw more than 5 feet or so may want to time their passages in and out of the marina for mid-to high tide.

    Stay here often. Great resturants, great bars, great shopping, great service and fairly pricey. This marina is at the top of my list. They just do it right!

    This marina is a fun place to stay. During warm wether there is music outside with different guys placing. Makes it nice to sit on the boat deck to listen. There are lots of boats >100′ that stop there, so great to watch. With the restuarants, shops, nice shower area, and helpful marina staff it is a great place to stop. My inexperienced boating companions sure needed the help docking and the gift bottle of wine helped them relax after their 1st boating trip.

    As far as entrance to Harbor Town – never had problem – was still low tide. Harbor Town is a favorite stop for us.
    Would love some local knowledge on exiting Harbor Town via eastbound Calibogue sound to Tybee to ocean. Have done it once.
    Appreciate your website and info.
