If you’re thinking “snobbish yacht club”, forget it when you stop at Myrtle Beach Yacht Club. It’s a very friendly, casual marina, complete with herb garden for you gourmets. Friendly staff and friendly slip holders make MBYC a very pleasant stop. And, these good folks are a SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR!

As we are departing Myrtle Beach we hear chatter on the VHF regarding the number of boats in the Calabash Creek anchorage. This was to be our destination but it was already crowded so we opted to stay at the Myrtle Beach Yacht Club.
The tide was low and water depths into the harbor basin were very skinny. Darn near heart stopping at one point. Even at the dock we were very close to sitting on the bottom (our draft 4.5″). We were helpfully refueled and docked by the staff.
We were both a little tired so instead of fixing dinner, we decided to go to the Officer’s Club Restaurant. We were pleasently surprised. The atmosphere and food were great. We both had excellent meals. We had crab stuffed mushrooms, steak, and shrimp scampi,. We even decided to have desert and enjoyed a monster “Brownie Tower” with coffee. After that fabulous meal we walked about the facility a bit. This place really surprised us. A great place to stop.
