    We pulled into Tom Point Creek on 4/27/10. It has been a blustery day and we had to run 2+ miles upstream before we found a spot with trees to block the gusting wind. We dropped the hook and were joined shortly by two other boats, one upstream and one down stream.
    Holding was good, and we spent a quiet evening. Not much local traffic.

    The most delightful creek is Tom Point Creek. Keep going up it for at least 2 miles and you’ll have great protection from trees, deep water and perfect natural silence. I was visited there by a large loggerhead turtle and several friendly dolphins.

    Our favorite anchorage in SC. If you go to the third turn (way up the creek) then there is a bar that is exposed at low tide. Be careful, but just before it is our favorite place to stop. A few small bass boats may come by from time to time, but that is no big deal. Also, the dolphins are great many times.

    We anchored in Tom Point Creek,in April, 2007. We anchored about 0.5 miles up (the 9′ spot on the chart) and found the depths as charted with plenty of swinging room for us (41′ sail). Very pretty

    Sunday, April 27, we headed for Tom Point Creek, south of Charleston. This is one of our favorite anchorages. After getting settled, Dony took me in the dinghy for a ride way up the creek. There are some nice houses on large parcels of land but towards the end of our ride, the houses became more like camps. On the way back to the boats we encountered some dolphins feeding. Getting close to them is not easy, but Dony tried.

    Subject: Tom Point Creek Anchorage Report
    Cruising News: We used the Tom Point Creek Anchorage at ICW MM 495.5 on our northbound trip last night, March 26, 2009. We entered at low tide and I noticed a large shoal at the knuckle-like turn before the long straight portion. This area extends about 1/3 into the turn and the next morning at high tide I cut it a little close and only saw 5.5 feet of water. The problem area is noted in the Google Map photo located at [the left].
