    Dock Holidays is alive and well.
    Same GREAT service is still be provided by Dock master Rhett Dickson. There are now TWO bars on site, along with TWO fishing boats and PWC rental.
    Rates are inexpensive and it is above the salt line.

    Stayed at this marina in April [2012]. They have removed the laundry, closed the restaurant, and services are minimal.

    We decided to stay here for a week so I have a few items to add.

    The docks float so the tie-up is easy.

    The kids (or visitors) can rent PWCs here at the marina and there is a boat that takes passengers on a dolphin watch and another takes passenges out fishing.

    The marina still has no laundry and the nearest coin laundry requires a car.

    The restaurant on the ICW is still closed but a Bar/Restaurant behind it opens at 4:00 pm Tuesday – Sunday. They have a band every night from 7:00 pm til 10:00 (later on weekends). The music is loud and if you want to sleep before 10:00, hatch up.

    The beach is about a mile walk eastbound on 11th ave which originates directly across from the marina. Access areas are a short walk either way when you reach Ocean Dr.

    Route 17 runs parallel to the ICW here but you can cross it at the walk light at 11th Ave. For dining options, Carrabas and Dirty Dick’s Crab House is a short walk and on the same side as Rt 17. Across Rt 17 and southbound is an ATM, Food Lion, CVS, and Chippers Grill. A longer walk south is Fridays and BW3. Also across Rt 17 and further south is Home Depot and Walmart. If your nails are looking rough from weighing anchor, Happy Nails is next to BW3. Northbound on Rt 17 is an Applebees and an Outback.

    Rhett and Matt will serve you well here at Dock Holidays.

    $1.40 per foot and $6 for 30 amp, cable included. West Marine, Food Lion, and restaurants with walking distance. Helpful staff.

    Friendly, helpful management. Low rate for week’s stay.
    Close to beach, bicycle rental, mini-golf (choice of two theme-type courses). Very pleasant restaurant and patio bar.

    The Marina at Dock Holidays DOES NOT have a laundry. Apparently they did at one time, but they do not have one now.

    Subject: Dock Holidays Marina dredged !
    Cruising News: I am pleased to advise you that the harbor at Dock Holidays Marina in North Myrtle Beach, SC has been dredged to a depth of 7’, (seven) feet. I recall that you requested we share such information, when you addressed us at the North Strand Power Squadron. This marina is cited on pages 5 and 17 of your,”Cruising Guide to Coastal South Carolina and Georgia”. If you need further information you may contact the Dockmaster, Rhett Dickson at the same number that is listed in your publication, (843) 280-6354.
