    We anchored on the western branch of Minim Creek, just past the dock. There was plenty of swing room and good protection from fetch. Very quiet area, so remote that no lights could be seen at night. Our kind of anchorage. It was a good stop for us to stage for a morning arrival at the Georgetown Public Docks, so we could visit the town during our day-only free stay.

    We anchored in 8 feet at mid tide. There is plenty of swing room for a 41ft cat proably enough for a 50 ft monohull. We anchored seaward.

    Great anchorage except the mosquitos were killer this past weekend.

    We spent a pleasant night anchored on Minum ck. early in May 2009. Holding, swing room, and depth was sufficient for our 55 Viking FDMY

    Wednesday found us on our way to Minim Creek, south of Georgetown, SC for the evening. Sometimes this is a great anchorage and sometimes not. Wednesday night was one of those good times. Lots of bugs, but bearable.
