        We’ve anchored at Beaufort SC several times…. and each time I swear we’ll never do that again…. Love the town, but the currents are swift, and the bottom, at least where we’ve anchored in the past is HARD…. With a lot of scope out, you do PULL IN… but you spend all you time wondering if just the tip of the anchor (Manson supreme) is all that’s “IN”…. Two days ago, with high winds, and lots of fetch (waves)… We watched the two boats in front of us… (toward the town) drag anchor, tangle and go ashore… WE decided to pull anchor and leave…. or possibly suffer the same fate…
        Recommendation… TAKE a mooring ball or slip if going to Beaufort… or leaving the boat…. We understand from the dockmaster that Beaufort WILL be putting in more moorings…. with better (as in larger) spacing…

        Tricky mooring field and you have to go to the parking space at the City Marina for going ashore ! GREAT town !!!!

        I have anchored there several times in the last 20 years. Although the current runs very swift, the bottom is good holding, but you need to leave plenty of room to swing. Depths usually are around 12 to 15 ft.
        The dingy dock is long and easy to get to. Tie up on the back side as the outside is for day boats. Then, you are right down town Beaufort. There are several good restaurants along Bay St. with entrances on the front or the back overlooking the water. Panninis , Luther’s , Plums are all good.
