  • Praise for Downtown Marina of Beaufort, SC, AICW Statute Mile 536.5


    The Downtown Marina Of Beaufort, SC, 1006 Bay Street Beaufort, SC 29902 (843) 524-4422 or Marker #239 on ICW

    A CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR!, Downtown Marina is located north of AICW marker #239, a short distance west of the Lady’s Island swing bridge, in the heart of downtown Beaufort. Our thanks to Charlie and Jackie for these good words.

    9-20-18. Over night at Downtown Marina at Beaufort. As usual terrific spot. Deck hand Troy- very experienced and nice- helped with lines. On inside of face dock. Bath house nice, decent ships store. And the most very nice ladies that take reservations are in the store. Pleasure to deal with. Always a must stop- especially with all the restaurants, shops, etc all so close. There is a new day dock- just for transients to tie up for lunch, etc. Very large and substantial– even looks nice. Good wifi and many air tv channels, but they also have cable.

  • LNM: Upper Waccamaw River Safety Zone, off AICW Statute Mile 375, Conway, SC


    This popular side trip up the upper Waccamaw River to Conway is an attractive, scenic passage departing the Waterway south of Myrtle Beach at statute mile 375. See Upstream Waccamaw.

    WACCAMAW RIVER SAFETY ZONECONWAY, SC

    The Captain of the Port Charleston (COTP) has established a temporary safety zone on the waters of the Waccamaw River in the vicinity of the Santee-Cooper ash pond in Conway, SC. State and Federal authorities have determined that potential hazards associated with and resulting from high waters of the Waccamaw River are present in the area and that vessel traffic will increase the potential of severely degrading flood berms adjacent to the Santee-Cooper ash ponds. The safety zone will cover all navigable waters of the Waccamaw River between U. S. Business Highway 501 and U. S. Highway 501 in Conway, SC. READ MORE!

    This rule is effective from 7 a.m. on September 22, 2018, through October 19, 2018, or until waters recede and conditions allow for safe navigation, whichever occurs first. The duration of the safety zone is intended to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment while the Waccamaw River experiences high water conditions. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative.

    To seek permission to enter the safety zone, contact the COTP or the COTP’s representative via VHF-FM channel 16, or through Coast Guard Sector Charleston’s Command Center at 843-740-7050. Those in the safety zone must comply with all lawful orders or directions given to them by the COTP or the COTP’s designated representative.
    Designated representative means a Coast Guard coxswain, petty officer, or other officers operating a Coast Guard vessel and a Federal, State, and local officer designated by or assisting the COTP in the enforcement of the safety zones.

    Due to expected flooding, the Socastee Swing Bridge in Horry County, SC will be closed to marine traffic beginning 12pm on Sept, 21 2018.

    The following Safety Advisory is still in effect:

    The Captain of the Port Charleston has issued a safety advisory and no wake restrictions for the Atlantic Intercoastal Waterway in the vicinity of Georgetown, SC to Little River, SC. It is highly recommended that all mariners consider high water stages, current and drift when preparing to transit in this area. Mariners are also advised to reduce wake in developed areas to protect and minimize damage to homes and other structures.

  • Intracoastal Waterway Flooding Forecast in SC and NC

    While flooding in the Waterway might solve some depth issues, it creates an entirely new set of problems: off-station markers, shifted channels – especially at inlet/ICW intersections, floating and submerged debris washed from shore, swift currents in normally calm waters, etc. If you are navigating in the upper South Carolina and North Carolina ICW, use great caution and TAKE YOUR TIME! And remember, your wake may be washing into someone’s living room!

    FIRST ALERT: Intracoastal Waterway flooding now forecast to surpass Matthew record

    Here is when and where forecasters say the Waccamaw, Little Pee Dee Rivers will crest

  • Special Report on NC/SC AICW Conditions by Tom Hale

    Our sincerest thanks to Tom Hale for sharing this detailed look at Waterway conditions following Hurricane Florence in North and South Carolina.

    Sept. 17, 2018

    As previously suggested and as hoped, the Northern part of the ICW between Norfolk and Beaufort NC is partially operational. Some facilities are fully up and running. Some facilities are damaged but running.  Some facilities are closed. However the ICW seems passable with dockage, fuel and water available in places between Norfolk and Beaufort, NC.  Those facilities which are open for business are anxious to have cruisers come through.  But be aware that many homes and businesses are flooded and already damaged.  Be even more careful about your wake, as in flooding conditions your wake is hitting homes and yards. The ICW south of Georgetown SC is operating normally. READ MORE!

    But that 125 miles between Beaufort, NC and New River (Myrtle Beach)  is still flooding, is lacking electrical power and phone lines,  and is several days away from being able to fully report, and weeks or months from being back to normal water levels.

    • Great Bridge bridge and lock are fully operational.
    • According to USACE Norfolk District Dismal Swamp Canal is open and the locks and bridges are operating on a normal schedule.
    • All is OK at Coinjock. Over 20 boats have left and headed to Hatteras, Wanchese,  Beaufort and points south! They have not heard of any reported problems in any of the canals and creeks to Beaufort NC.
    • Alligator River Swing Bridge is operational.
    • Dowry Creek has power to the office and heads, still working on the dock power. The water is below the docks but is still up 2.5 feet.  USCG has been through Alligator Pungo Canal to check ATONs. There are damaged ATONs.
    • Wilkerson Bridge now at about 60.5 feet
    • River Forrest Marina has no fuel but is taking reservations.  Transient space is limited to smaller vessels. Grocery store is open, downtown restaurants are “drying out” after 4’ of flood water.  Main streets are dry this morning, but only just barely.  Many parts of town are still flooded. .
    • 9/17 A tug and barge headed north in AP canal this morning, so commercial traffic is resuming.
    • Hobucken USCG has covered about 20% of their territory.   So far AP canal to G7 in Adams creek has been checked.  ICW has damaged ATONs.
    • Jarrett Bay is closed. No Power. Area is devastated.  2 USCG boats went north bound in Adams Creek this morning 9/17.
    • Homer Smith Docks had no damage.  Still has no power but is taking transients.  They report that boats are moving up and down the Beaufort waterways with no trouble.
    • Morehead City Marina is not answering their phone.
    • Beaufort City Docks are operational. No Power as of noon 9/17. A generator is wired to the fuel pumps, so fuel is available.  2 x  100’ yachts are inbound from Coinjock today.
    • Onslow Beach Bridge phone not working 9/17
    • Surf City Bridge phone not working 9/17
    • Figure 8 Bridge phone not working 9/17
    • Wrightsville beach bridge 910.256.2886 not answering 9/17/18
    • Southport NC: All the marinas were spared major damage.  There is still no electrical power in the area.  The city potable water system has had several major breaks and  it is unclear how long it will take to get the water flowing again.  All of the roads leading into Southport are washed out and flooded.  At this time there is no vehicular access to Southport.  The Cape Fear river is expected to crest later this week.  There will be significant debris washing though.
    • Myrtle Beach YC is fully operational with power and water. Center console boats are running in the ICW
    • Wrightsville Beach Bridge not answering 9/17/18
    • All bridges in Horry County SC (Myrtle Beach area) are operational! Socastee Swing Bridge, Barefoot Landing and Little River Swing Bridge. Flood waters are still rising inland and it is entirely possible that the bridges will be  non-operational at some point  as the rivers crest. The 65’ bridges aren’t! Water still high and rising.   After Matthew it took weeks for the water to get back to normal levels.
    • Myrtle Beach YC is fully operational. Center console boats are running in the ICW
    • Osprey Marina reports that they survived with no damage. The Waccamaw crest is expected Thursday . It could be worse than Mathew.  Expect floods and a slow speed zone through Socastee.  The 65 foot bridges in Socastee are far less than 65′ right now.
    • Port of Georgetown is open. Marinas are open and selling fuel.
    • McClellanville, Leland Oil open reports USCG has checked channel. They have not heard of any problems.
    • Isle of Palms Marina is fully operational and taking transients. No word yet on the condition of ICW to Georgetown. No boat traffic in ICW except center consoles and work boats.
    • Ben Sawyer Bridge is now operational and back on normal schedule.
    • Port of Charleston Open. Charleston Marina is taking transients.
  • Warning of Bottom Trash, Charleston/Ashley River Anchorages, AICW Statute Mile 469


    These three anchorages lie off the ICW between the Waterway/Ashley River intersection and the Hwy 17 bascule bridge several hundred yards up the Ashley. See Observations for further comments. Our thanks to Robert Pease for this warning!

    I was warned by the marina of a lot of crap on the bottom. My anchor got fouled on long lengths of scrap electrical cable. You may want to put a note of caution on this anchorage. Am currently up the Wando river, very good holding.

    This non-ICW anchorage and unlisted in Cruisers’ Net’s Anchorage Directories has been mentioned here in the past, see https://cruisersnet.net/34459. Gearry and Stacey are hoping you might have recent experience to share re anchoring there.

    We’re considering stopping at Bluffton on our way back to Savannah from Beaufort in a couple of weeks. Any updates/additional information on this anchorage? I’m assuming the public dinghy dock mentioned is the Calhoun Street Dock. Planning to give it a try.

    After the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the president signed into effect the Maritime Transportation Security Act, which required the establishment of AMSCs. The 43 AMSCs throughout the U.S. strive to enhance communication between port stake-holders within federal, state and local agencies to foster a culture of security, both traditional and cyber, within the port environment.

    The Charleston AMSC serves as the foundation of security within the Port of Charleston. Due to collective planning, highly effective communication, working relationships and unity of effort, the Charleston AMSC has been selected as the AMSC of the year. The Charleston AMSC is receiving this recognition due to their cutting-edge collaborative approach to cybersecurity in the intermodal environment and their participation in numerous multi-agency operations that dramatically improved security within the Port of Charleston.

    “When you consider our committee competed against ports like New York and Los Angeles, being selected as the preeminent AMSC in the Nation is a direct reflection of the commitment our partners have to ensure the Port of Charleston remains safe and secure,” said Capt. John Reed, Commanding Officer of Coast Guard Sector Charleston. “I am amazed daily at our partner’s commitment to protecting our homeland and their unwavering willingness to collaborate on all levels to ensure absolute success.”

  • Good Review of Myrtle Beach Yacht Club, AICW Statute Mile 346


    Myrtle Beach Yacht Club is unmatched for its Lowcountry charm and gracious hospitality.

    A CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, Myrtle Beach Yacht Club occupies the northerly banks of Coquina Harbor; Coquina Harbor itself cuts into the northern banks of the Waterway, opposite marker #13.

    Stayed there over a soggy Memorial Day weekend. Good price ($1/ft with Boat US discount), great facilities, helpful dock personnel (Bud and Lex), friendly locals. Tight entrance, so be careful.
