Recently voted the 2015 “Marina of the Year” by Marina Dock Age magazine, the Harbour Town Yacht Basin has been a place for visitors and guests to enjoy world-class accommodations for over 40 years. Located in the heart of The Sea Pines Resort and on the Calibogue Sound, this full-service marina offers everything: shopping, dining, entertainment, watersports, fishing charters, cruises, and much more. Irrefutably Hilton Head Island’s most famous and visited marina, our amiable and experienced staff and Harbourmaster are dedicated to providing each visitor and guest with lifelong memories all amidst the spectacular backdrop of the iconic Harbour Town Lighthouse.
The Harbour Town Yacht Basin was built in 1969 by legendary founder, Charles Fraser. Modeled after a famous harbor in Portofino, Italy, Harbour Town Yacht Basin was designed to attract visitors while preserving the natural beauty of the landscape. This included preserving the Liberty Oak, which was incorporated into the layout of the marina in lieu of building more slips. Centuries old, the Liberty Oak has stood as a symbolic landmark for wedding venues and concerts, but the most iconic image of the yacht basin is the Harbour Town Lighthouse. Constructed the same year as the marina, the lighthouse has welcomed visitors to one of the most beautiful and unique places on earth while offering one-of-a-kind views.
Harbour Town Yacht Basin is an intimate marina that offers over 100 docking slips where visitors can dock nightly, monthly, or even for a lifetime. Modern facilities and exceptional service continue to contribute to the world-class resort experience that keeps guests coming back year after year. Guests and visitors at the yacht basin can enjoy world-class facilities throughout The Sea Pines Resort, such as the Harbour Town Clubhouse, the Sea Pines Beach Club, the Plantation Golf Club, and the luxurious Inn & Club at Harbour Town.
Guests can enjoy charter fishing, cruises and sightseeing tours, as well as watersports at Harbour Town. Explore fertile fishing grounds with the island’s most experienced captains on a three-hour or overnight excursion aboard a fishing charter, observe various marine life from aboard a multi-passenger yacht during a sightseeing tour of Calibogue Sound and Daufuskie Island, or close up on a waverunner, kayak, or paddleboard.
