This is an anchorage we haven’t heard a lot about, but from Captain Arnold’s description, it seems well worth exploring. The May River departs the AICW to the northwest at statute mile 560, just north of Hilton Head.
Can’t tell you about how nice a mooring is at Bluffton some 5 miles up the May River. Well protected from all winds and a good 10ft of water. The town is just great – Wednesday being Farmers Market day and also a first class thrift store run by a local church. Big stores like Walmart and Publix are 6 miles away – you can get a taxi or often find a friendly native will give you a lift. Free public dinghy dock.
Where exactly did you anchor? My daughter will be attending USCB this fall and we are looking for a good anchorage in the area.
