        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.

        7-5-17. Left Harbor Village at 6:15am. Beautiful day all day. Changed plans when realize get nto Southport way too early and changed to MBYC at mm346. Fueled up– 80 gal/stb. And 62.2 in port -total 141.6. With Boat US dockage was $34!!! (my boat is 34″) $5 for electricity- 30 amp. Gene was as competent as cute helping us dock and take on fuel. Have a pass to get in the club’s grill- taco and tequila sunrises on very special! Shower secure, clean and even the soap dispensers had soap. Wifi strong on A-10. Easy to take dog out. No current and maybe a foot tide fall. Docks in great shape. We are here for only 1 night but may be a very good place for several days since so much going on around here. We will be back – most definitely.

        Arrived around 3:45 and melted into the dock. Been a long day, lots of slow going with a lot of no wakes. And it has been hot. Stopped at Osprey for fuel, best prices in the area, then continued to Myrtle Beach for the night. To hot to cook so we eat at Clarks, its right next to the marina. Every thing was excellent.
        Had a problem with the electric “Y”, had to get one ordered from West Marine. Had two days to enjoy the area, we rented a car and did just that. Found some fresh shrimp and did them on the Barbee. Then were able to find Fishy Fishy, had a fantastic meal. Great stay.

        We just spent two weeks at MBYC (our second visit) and had a great time. At $1.00 a foot (Boat US discount), you simply can’t beat this place. The pool is immaculate, the restaurant has great food and good music, and the social life is terrific. Saw old friends and met several new friends. Highly recommend stopping here if you never have.

        Sitting in Myrtle Beach Yacht Club as I write….. now our favorite stop in Myrtle unless we need supplies. It has a nice Laundry with computers, swimming pool and is set back off the intracoastal. 2 good restaurants on site and Little River is the actual location but only about 6 miles North of Barefoot.
        2 night stay was $87.50 for a 40 footer with 50 amp service….friendly resident boaters.

        We just stopped here for two nights to visit and catch up with some other cruising friends we hadn’t seen in a while. What a great spot this is! The staff and the boaters are all very friendly, beautiful pool, nice laundry room with plenty of machines, a healthy book exchange and a computer for boaters to use. The docks have combination security gates. We weren’t here long enough to check out the exercise area but plan to stop back next year on our way north and possibly stay awhile. The area’s seafood restaurant choices are endless but you do need transportation. We ate at Captain Poo’s last night. I’m usually up for trying new and unusual dishes so I had the cheeseburger with a friend egg on top. I’d never heard of it before but it was fantastic!!

        Both LKM and MBYC [Myrtle Beach Yacht Club] are very good stops. The Officers Club at MBYC has a very nice informal food. Good cruisers talk going on there all the time. Clarks, right next door is more upscale and is really good also. MBYC has fuel with pump out. Pools at both places. West Marine about 3 miles away. Food shopping about 2 miles. Very laid back nice stop over whichever you choose.

        MBYC is in Little River, not Myrtle Beach. We stayed here on our way north last spring, and then again last week (13 September). Both times we have been very pleased. The staff is knowledgable and very helpful. They drove us over to West Marine late in the day before it closed. Facilities are A-1. Good value. There is a nice walkway for exercise that goes all around Coquina Harbor. People seem to be very friendly. We would definitely go again.

        SweetPea is now located at Myrtle Beach Yacht club mile marker 345.9 and and will remain here till after the Thanksgiving holiday. Though we have just arrived I can say this the people here are very friendly and the Officers Club (restaurant) is excellent ! Those boaters heading south if you land here for a night or extended stay stop in and see us. The entrance of the harbour is marked by a lighthouse.

        As we are departing Myrtle Beach we hear chatter on the VHF regarding the number of boats in the Calabash Creek anchorage. This was to be our destination but it was already crowded so we opted to stay at the Myrtle Beach Yacht Club.
        The tide was low and water depths into the harbor basin were very skinny. Darn near heart stopping at one point. Even at the dock we were very close to sitting on the bottom (our draft 4.5″). We were helpfully refueled and docked by the staff.
        We were both a little tired so instead of fixing dinner, we decided to go to the Officer’s Club Restaurant. We were pleasently surprised. The atmosphere and food were great. We both had excellent meals. We had crab stuffed mushrooms, steak, and shrimp scampi,. We even decided to have desert and enjoyed a monster “Brownie Tower” with coffee. After that fabulous meal we walked about the facility a bit. This place really surprised us. A great place to stop.

        Very pleased with MBYC. Loved the rate. We are Sea Tow but they still gave us the Tow Boat rate. Excellant Pecan Pie at the Officer’s Club Restaurant. The rental car was from an outside contractor and it was a bit over the hill (that is kind), but the club facilities were excellant. It is also a very protected marina, all inside a basin.

        I have a condo at Coquina Harbor. Depths have been good since the dredging of the harbor was completed. I have a shallow draft boat, but I asked the owner of a 6.5 foot draft sailboat that stays here how he found depths throughout the harbor. He said he had seen nothing less that 7.5 feet at low tide. This inquiry was made 9/04/09. I came through the entrance at high tide on 9/05/09 and my depth sounder indicated 14.5 feet.

        Cruising News: Not wanting to get back out in the Myrtle Beach Bikers Rally, we went to the Marina’s Officers’ Club restaurant (actually a private club), and we were very pleased. This was a 4.5 star dining experience. I have had bad luck with gumbo this trip so this time I asked for a taste. I was brought a condiment bowl on a doilied saucer with the gumbo, rice and garnish. It was Seafood Creole (almost a Cioppino). But it was very good creole!
        After excellent shrimp with Thai Chili sauce for an appetizer, when the creole dinner serving arrived, it was literally beautiful. A cookbook cover photo. My wife’s stuffed flounder was every bit as well prepared and presented. Ryan, waiter, did a great job.
        The Marina has been an excellent place to keep the boat for a week while we took care of land side must dos. We strongly recommend this secure, clean, well run establishment.
        I need to add that MYBC’s capital investment in new head and shower facilities paid off. The new arrangement is excellent.

        My husband and I cruised icw from south harbor marina to barefoot marina for our first adventure on the icw. Upon our arrival at barefoot; we informed the dock master that my husband could use some assistance in docking due to being partially disabled from a stroke 6 years ago. They were more than welcome to accommodate us and assist us in anyway possible upon arrival and departure and our entire stay. They are definitely a must stop on your travels. MOST definitely we will be returning to barefoot on our next adventure. Thanks so much to Barefoot Marina for a Great first experience!!!

        Stayed here 4/28 and 4/29/13. Stayed here in fall. Stayed on face dock with no problems. Could have gone to inside dock if desired. Great help docking. Good shore facilities. Now has decent restaurant which is big feature due to distance to restaurants on east shore. Good shopping within a couple of miles but no way, except cab, to get there. Good place to stop for night since anchorages are limited in area. Can’t beat the $1.25/ft. price given the nice facility. Will stop again.

        We have spent several months at Barefoot Marina, off and on usually in the off-season, say November – April. It is a wonderful facility, great floating concrete (Bellingham)docks, right on the ICW. Easy walk or bike ride across the bridge to Barefoot Landing and lots of restaurants and shops….although the shopping is not as nice as it was 5 or 6 years ago. Also, Alabama Theater is right there and has good shows.
        Talk directly to Bill Rathbon about rates. They are very inexpensive for what you get…nice showers, pool, very clean facility.
        Be sure to eat at the Seafood Hut across the street and slightly north of Barefoot Landing – small and little atmosphere, but great food and great owners. I can guarantee you’ll get a hug before you leave.
        [If] you’re talking about being there for several months you might want to look in to purchasing one of the restaurant discount books, which offer many great buy one get one free deals at the nicest restaurants. Use it twice and its paid for itself! Sold by Ritz Limo, I’m sure Bill can help you get in touch…the owner keeps his boat there at the marina I think.

        Barefoot Resort Marina; This was, and will be again, our home marina. We live at Barefoot Resort so this was an obvious choice for us. We have sailed up and down the East coast between here and New England for the last several years. Lately more north than south I’m afraid. We have seen the good, the bad and the UGLY when it comes to east coast marinas. In my opinion you will not find a nicer, cleaner and more upscale facility then Barefoot Resort Marina. Bill Rathburn and George have been friends and honorary crew members aboard Spirit, our C&C 40. They are also very pet friendly with our Labrador Genny. You all know that they are quite competitive regarding dock fees. Spirit has a 7′ draft. (7’3″ to be exact). She gets in and out at high water. Other times require caution as we have been aground there also. But forewarned is forearmed as I like to say. Just be aware of the height of tide when approaching with over 5′ of draft. It is worth it.

        On May 20th I was getting ready to dock at Barefoot Resort Marina(that’s the one on the left as you go north on the AICW) in N. Myrtle Beach, SC. A dock hand was standing on the face dock directing me into the dock when I ran aground on a sand bar. It was low tide and I draw 5 ft. I could not wiggle or move my boat from the bar. I called Tow Boat U.S. and the Little River , SC location dispatched a boat. It was on scene within 40 minutes.
        I have a 42 ft. Endeavour Sail and within a few minutes the tow operator hooked a line to the bow and proceeded to pull my craft straight through the shoal. It stalled in the middle of the shoal and the tow operator increased the power significantly and pulled us through the shoal and off.
        Later I discovered that a shoal had been building for some time and no one at the marina told us about it.
        The next day when we left, we had to go very carefully until we found the opening through the shoal to get out into the waterway. The shoal is within 50 ft. of the dock and in the middle of the waterway.
        We did not think too much of this incident until about a week later when the bilge pump started going off more than usual. Then another week went by and we were in Ocracoke and the bilge pump was going off every 30 seconds. We made it back to Oriental and was pulled out by Sailcraft and water came pouring out of our keel. The bottom of the keel had been punctured and the fuel tank and water tank had been ruptured. We had been taking on water for over 3 weeks and it finally got to the point that it was filling up the bilge.
        Our boat is now high and dry with the bottom of the keel cut out. The boat yard is going to remove the generator and remove the water and fuel tanks and build custom tanks to take their place and repair the keel. The boat will be in the boat yard most of the summer.
        So, please be careful when transiting the area around the Barefoot Marina resort and stay in the middle of the channel. They are just south of the section called the “rock pile” in Myrtle Beach.

        I can echo the recent reviews. We stayed at Barefoot Marina April 21-22, 2012 and found the facility and the staff terrific. The layout is great, with the dock close to the office and only a short walk to the showers, laundry, etc. Also had a nice dinner at the new restaurant, DockSiders, last night. Flounder was very nice, and reasonable. The rates here can’t be beat, $1.25/foot, and free pump-out. Boat-US discount on fuel as well. It’s only a short walk over the swing bridge to the ocean which is beautiful here.

        We just wanted to pass on that this marina is a great place to stay for an extended time or just for overnight. The service at the docks is great and the attitude of the entire staff is outstanding. They have excellent facilities and a restaurant on site. A grocery store, drugstore and medical facility are within walking distance. Barefoot Landing with all the shops and more restaurants and other entertainment options are also within walking distance. You get all this at very excellent rates ($1.25).
        We cannot begin to say enough nice things about our stay at this marina.

        We took a short Easter trip south last week. After a very unfriendly “Welcome to South Carolina” by the bridge tender at the Little River Swing Bridge we found ourselves with good weather and great SC Marinas. The first was the Barefoot Marina. Friendly helpful staff and clean facilities. If you are a biker or runner/walker this marina is located in an area with great wide sidewalks that stretch out in some very nice neighorhoods. Also, short walk across bridge to shops and restaurants.

        Many [cruisers] are about to arrive in Myrtle Beach, so we wanted them to know of one of our favorite places. Having just spent a month at The Barefoot Marina in Myrtle Beach, SC, we thought it appropriate we let others know of our experience. The Barefoot Marina, site of the 2010 Spring [AGLCA] Rendezvous, is on the western side of the
        ICW across from Barefoot Landing and the Alabama Theatre. The staff is friendly and courteous. The private showers and restrooms are clean and well stocked. The concrete floating docks are the most stable and best floating docks we have ever seen or tied to. There is a restaurant/bar/grill onsite. There is a place on the dock for daily DOCKTAILS. Pumpout is FREE. Gas/Diesel is available at competitive prices. Dockage is very fairly priced and very competitive. Cable TV and Wi-Fi are included in the dockage rate and keypad locked gates surround the docks. Washers and dryers(they actually dry your clothes). We hope everyone will consider this fine marina.
        We, Rick and Betsy on Rick ‘N Roll, have no financial interest in the property. It is just one of our favorite places to stay.

        We recently moved our boat from Florida and after checking out a lot of marinas selected Barefoot Marina at North Myrtle Beach. It’s pretty far north of Beaufort but lots of benefits; Great people, excellent docking system, fresh water and the most reasonable rates that we found anywhere. Also have diesel at very competitive rates. The web site doesn’t provide a lot of info but does include contact information. Check with Bill or George, they really work to make your stay pleasant.

        Barefoot Resort – North Myrtle Beach, SC, ICW mm 354. This is our home marina!!! The ownership of this marina has transferred this past year, and the marina is doing great! The facilities are top notch, well kept, and definitely what you expect from a resort location. They are full service, with showers, laundry, and fuel onsite, and unbelievably great restaurants and shopping very nearby. Our harbor master and dock master are people who have been with Barefoot Yacht Club from its opening, and they are truly committed to serving the boating public. We have been members from the beginning and are thrilled with the changes that have occurred these past few months. We highly recommend this marina as a stop on your trip southbound this winter!

        Barefoot Resort Yacht Club, has re-organized and is open for business as The Barefoot Marina. In addition to the existing fine facilities, Dock Master, Bill Rathbun, has added many up-grades, including free pump-out, free WiFi, and Valve-Tech fuel. The restaurant is not yet open, but bids have been offered and the restaurant should be open soon. Transient slips remain at $2.00 per foot with a BoatUS discount price of $1.50 per foot. Not to be confused with Barefoot Landing Dock across the Waterway, the Barefoot Marina lies on the western side of the AICW, just below Barefoot Landing Bridge. You can reach the marina at 843-390-2011 or

        We were placed on the new docks along the entrance channel. It was the next best thing to being at anchor with natural, wooded areas on both sides of the boat. It is a long way to the marina office, but they provide a golf cart for the boats on this dock to share. Friendly helpful staff, nice facilities, great prices on dockage and fuel. Osprey is now our favorite marina.

        Spent the night right after hurricane Sandy. First class experience all around. When you pull in for fuel, they give you a free pump-out as well. It’s a little isolated, but several restaurants deliver and a couple will even give you a round trip in a courtesy car. There is a cafe during the season but not in November. They have a little ship’s store and will order anything you need. Clean heads and laundry. The kicker, though, is the staff. Other marinas should come and watch how efficiently and proficiently they operate.

        Gizmo was at Osprey from late Oct until April 1, and I was aboard about a quarter of that time. Wonderful marina…quiet, super safe, and very well managed.
        The restaurant that offers free pick up and return is Scatori’s and it’s actually one of the best around. It also happens to be right next to both an excellent Lowe’s Supermarket and a Lowe’s Home Improvement Center. I enjoyed both Scatori’s pizza place and their restaurant but have not yet tried the custom $50 tasting menu that some boaters raved about.

        Yes, many people have said it, but here it is again. These folks are wonderful! Lowest fuel prices for many miles, plus a Boat/US discount. The grill is closed in winter, but Miles the dockmaster, had made “chicken bog” in a pot — sausaage, rice, chicken and spices — and offered us some. This is the place to stop, just before you take off down the beautiful Waccamaw River.

        Hi Claiborne,
        Osprey Marina is aptly named, located along the Waccamaw River (STM 373.3), where you’ll see LOTS of osprey and osprey nests.
        The facility is built around a quiet, secluded basin tucked down a narrow tree-lined channel. It’s easy to forget that crowded Myrtle Beach is just to the north, over the treetops.
        The marina is a great place to leave your boat for holiday travel. Myrtle Beach International Airport is only 14 miles away.
        The basin is incredibly protected and the owners and staff go above and beyond to make you happy and take care of your boat.
        And the rates are very competitive: cruisers should be sure to ask about their decreasing-by-the-day dockage fees.
        When you check in you receive a captain’s bag guaranteed to put a smile on your face. It’s loaded with treats that show this marina understands what boaters enjoy: goodies like travel packs of laundry detergent, crackers, and homemade local pumpkin butter.
        Sherry, we especially enjoyed the pumpkin butter! [ hint … hint ]
        Best and see you On the Water,
        Captains Mark & Diana Doyle

        We stayed one night on return from Bald Head to Georgetown and wanted to avoid the carnival of Myrtle Beach. What a great spot! We are a 47′ Beneteau and had no problem getting in and out. The most helpful, curtious staff we have ever encountered. Cleanest baths, laundry and marina building possible. Enjoyed an outstanding Italian dinner with pickup and return service. Couldn’t ask for more, every marina could learn from Osprey. We will be back next time

Great surrounding, helpful staff, including driving us into town to refill our propane tank. The marina is clean and well cared for. We will be back.

I requested an easy exit space because I had one cranky engine. No problem. The staff are all helpful, cheerful and positive. They are on my list for the next trip.

        One of the perks of docking at Osprey Marina is the willingness of a local Italian restaurant to either deliver a meal or come fetch the crew members and take them to the restaurant. Twice we’ve had excellent pizza delivered, but this time we asked to be picked up and driven there. The driver was within a minute of the appointed 6 pm time, picking us up in his own Honda. We were served gigantic portions of lasagna and penne al la vodka, which we are still eating days later. The same pizza delivery guy drove us home to Osprey, and we were back aboard before sundown.

        Osprey Marina is very attractive, having been carved out of the land. It is reached by a short canal, and is easy to miss if you’re not paying attention. It is well worth a visit. While it is not within walking reach of general services, the snack bar (operated by Sheri, who seems also to be the marina manager) serves both breakfast and lunch, closing at 1700 when the office closes. Upon our arrival, Sheri (maybe spelled differently) presented us with a bag of complimentary goodies which included a package of crackers, a block of cheddar cheese, a couple of candy bars, a key ring float, a couple of insulated drink holders, a book of matches, several pamphlets about the marina, and a list of essential services within a taxi ride including, of course, the phone numbers of the local taxis. Included with this information was the phone number of Scatori’s Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant, “Local’s favorite authentic Italian cuisine & real NY pizza.” Scatori’s will come fetch you at the marina (and bring you back) and offers free delivery to your boat. We opted for the latter (as we had when we stopped at Osprey Marina last spring) and ordered a large three-topping pizza which was delivered by a cultured and articulate young man an hour later. We devoured half of the pizza and saved the other half for later.
        Shower facilities at Osprey Marina rated a 9 with both of us. The only negative point was the lack of enough hooks from which to hang one’s clothes while in the shower. However, the showers were excellent, clean, not fancy, but with benches and chairs, substantial hand rails on two sides, and racks for soap shampoo, and whatever else one would likely want to take into the shower. Entry into the showers/heads/laundry area is provided using a magnetic key provided with the goodie bag when you sign in.
        Sheri said she would be at the marina at 0800 and would cook breakfast for us. Malla had a biscuit and gravy ($4.00), and I had the Osprey Platter ($6.25): 2 eggs, 2 sausage patties or 3 bacon slices. grits or home fries, and toast. Coffee is free, help yourself. It was all excellent, enjoyed at a window table overlooking part of the marina. We were out of there before 0900.
        Why do I go on so about this marina? On the wall near the grill is a framed clipping with the headline, “Osprey Marina and Grill named the best marina in the country.”
        When we were ready to depart, the dockmaster came down to our slip and gave O.G’s pulpit a gentle shove to help us get squared away.
        We were very glad we had stopped there and will try to do so again on our way north next spring.

        1730: Osprey Marina turned out to be a pleasant surprise and the find of the Century. One enters a narrow cut on the east side of the ICW. After a hundred yards or so, the cut opens into a large basin which has half-a-dozen docks, each with 30 or 40 slips. They put us on the fuel dock so we could pump the holding tank and while there we topped off with fuel.
        The dockmaster walked me to our slip so I could see if it was okay and how to get into it, then we motored around to B-dock, slip 6 and tied up for the night. Osprey Marina is modern, clean, and has all the amenities. Nearby is an Italian restaurant which will pick you up or deliver your meal. We called and had an excellent pizza which was delivered earlier than expected. We ate half of it and have the other half for later. Osprey Marina gets our vote as one of the best deals around, but don’t blink as you pass the canal.
        (All day we had seen signs with the word Osprey, but the rest of the lettering is too small to read. We didn’t know what they represented, perhaps real estate sales.)
        0915: We bid farewell to Osprey Marina vowing to return. It’s biggest attraction to us, aside from being a great spot, is that it lets us avoid Barefoot Landing which we don’t care for partly because it has the worst, overpriced ice cream either of us has ever tasted. What a contrast: I forgot to mention in yesterday’s log that all overnight boats are given a care package which contains, among other things, a whole package of Helluvagood Cheese and two kinds of crackers to go with it, a couple of mints, a magazine, two drink holders, and a whistle with float plus information about the marina, the marina grill menu (breakfast and lunch), etc.

        Osprey Marina is one of our two favorite marinas. We were there on January 6, 2010, and had to break through a half inch of ice leaving in the morning. You cannot find a cleaner or more well kept facility. The onsite restaurant and ship’s store is excellent and most welcoming. The rest rooms are with the best we have ever seen. A very clean and complete laundry is also available.
        Considering that this is all available at $1.00 per foot, Osprey Marina is not to be missed. It is simply superb.
        Claiborne Young’s South Carolina and Georgia Cruising Guide drew us in, and it was a great choice. We recommend it to all we meet, and look forward to returning in the spring.

        I have stopped at Osprey Marina at least 4 times over the last few years. Their fuel prices are always the lowest in the area and their dockage is downright reasonable. Left my boat there for over a month this Spring without any paranoia…nice, helpful, knowledgable folks…can’t praise ’em enough for the way they run their business and they could not be more helpful…the grounds are well kept and the place is always clean and welcoming. Without a doubt, one of the NICEST Marinas between CT and FL on the ICW.

        We just fueled at Osprey Marina at mile 373.3, just south of Myrtle Beach. Diesel was $4.16/gallon and $4.06 with Boat US discount. The marina is just off the ICW with easy access to the fuel dock and a working pumpout.
        Larry, the dockmaster is knowledgeable and very helpful. Today was just a fuel stop for us, but last year we left the boat at their dock while we travelled on land.The marina is well protected, the floating docks are new and restrooms and laundry room are modern and clean. The owners and staff take pride in their facility and it shows. We also enjoyed a good Sunday morning breakfast at the Osprey Grill, which is open daily for breakfast and lunch.
        Prior to fueling at Osprey, we called New River Marina mile 246.9 NC (which generally has very competitive prices) and were told that diesel is now $4.21/gallon. Looks like we can expect fuel prices to continue to increase as we head north and as summer approaches.

        Thanks to all who recommended stopping at Osprey Marina. EVERYTHING was top notch – people, facilities, etc. An added attraction is now a restaurant – Scatori’s -thst picks you up and delivers you – plus they are right next to a LOWE’S grocery store for shopping before being returned to your boat.
        A Second to George’s recommendation. Marina very clean and hospitable. Chef Kevin Scatori is a protege of Emeril Lagasse and the food is FABULOUS. Service is attentive and sauces made fresh very day. As good as NY or N’Orleans has to offer.

        I had very accommodating service from Lexi at Harborwalk Marina. She stayed after hours to assist myself and another cruiser and provided excellent instructions on how to enter the harbor, prepare the boat for tie off and access the dock slip on the inside of their marina. The marina facilities were exceptionally clean and in “like new” condition. Rates were reasonable and the nearby restaurants were welcoming. Cruiser’s Net guest will not be disappointed.

        Stopped in on our way north after visiting Charleston. Had not visited in awhile but can say Georgetown has not let a fire slow them down. Great biking and walking along the tree lined streets. We remember this marina when they were a service station and boat lift. Now they have a new shower facility and great floating docks plus expansion plans. First Class all the way – town and marina. Friendly people.

        Chris Carroll, manager of the Georgetown Harbor Walk Marina, is a pro at line handling and people handling. A truly historic and gracious stop. Be sure to tour the local museum and have dinner at the Rice Paddy Restaurant. We rate both the restaurant and the marina as among the best on the AICW from Norfolk to Florida.

        Stayed at Harbour Walk Marina several time with our yacht club cruises. Great place and right in the historic district for an easy walk downtown. Ate at the Rice Paddy Restaurant, but there are several others close by.

        Stayed there [Harborwalk Marina] 4/26 and 427/13. Good floating docks but fixed docks need replacing (waiting on permits to replace with floating). Nice shore facilities, very nice town, some good restaurants (try Limp’in Jane’s and Aunnies), good stores and shops. Grocery will send car but is only a nice walk anyway. Interesting history, take tour and see rice museum. Will stop here again in future.

        We have spent the last 2 winters in GT, SC and can tell anyone and everyone you will not find a better place in SC to visit. Harborwalk Marina is on the south end of the boardwalk. The Dock master is Chris and his assistant is Steve. Both are top shelf guys that really know the marina and cruisers business. You can walk to most all eat places as you are right on front street when you get off the dock. There is a large park a few blocks away.

        Jim and I spent a month at Harborwalk on our way north this summer and are now here for a few days on our way back to Florida. The marina is small but the service from Chris and Steve is top-notch. Everything is maintained very well, from the office to the rest rooms, the laundry area and the docks. All of it is always clean and tidy. Very convenient location – step off your boat and in less than a minute you’re in downtown Georgetown. Walk a couple of minutes in the other direction and you can buy shrimp fresh of the boats. Georgetown and Harborwalk are both on our “places to stop at again” list. And if you’re here for a couple of days, be sure book a spot on Captain Rod’s Low Country Tour boat and go shelling at the beach!

There are several really good marinas in GT but we switched to Harborwalk because of service and location. Don’t let one guy that had a bad day desuade you from staying at HW. See you in the winter Chris!

        We were in Georgetown for one week. We anchored our cat in the harbor and dinghied over to Harborwalk Marina to use their laundry and shower facilities. Chris was very friendly and helpful. The night before our departure, we stayed on the face dock– fueled/filled our water tank, and once again used the very nice laundry/bath facilities. We were overall very pleased until the day of our departure.We had made prior arrangements with Chris to stay until late afternoon (my husband works from the boat and needed wi-fi. ) Around lunchtime that day, the dockmaster, Dave inquired about our departure time and I informed him of our arrangement. He was not very friendly about our staying past noon– We felt very pressured by him to leave and it really put a negative spin on an otherwise pleasant experience. We totally understand that dock spaces can at times be limited, but Dave’s attitude made us believe he simply wanted us “off the dock”. We would consider staying here again, but will be more careful about verifying “check – out” times.

        Harborwalk Marina in Georgetown SC. We second the recommendation below. We were going south TG week and ran into a mechicanal issue as we were docking for 2 nights at Harborwalk. Chris and Mike arranged to get us a tech we could trust to correct our problems. We had to order parts, (1 week to get in) so we arranged a good monthly rate with Chris and enjoyed TG week in GT and returned home by car. Our boat remains there until Jan. Everyone at the marina is first class. Very dog friendly marina and town. We could easily stay there for an entire season and be happy. Just steps to all the downtown amenties but very laid back.

We paid for showers (we were anchored), bought our gas from them along with ice. We would come back to this town again and again. Nice places to eat, shop, provision and it is safe to keep the boat.

        Harborwalk Marina, Georgetown – had another great trip to Georgetown a month ago. The marina is in perfect condition, with incredible service (we arrived late and they waited for us and had three dock hands to assist with a an easy landing. Excellent facilities at this marina, in fact the cleanest restrooms and laundry I’ve found yet! New docks and a great view of downtown. We were amazed at the recently redone boardwalk all along the harborside. Did a lot of exploring of the Georgetown area on bike and had two great meals, one at Portofino and the other at our favorite Rice Paddy.

        We just stayed at Harborwalk Marina in Georgetown, SC and found it newly renovated… great showers and laundry. Low tide is a trip coming in – stay to starboard after the entry marker and hug the docks. At Harbor Walk Marina depth is around 6.5 ft. at the inner most dock at low tide. Outside and finger docks have plenty of water even at a dead low tide.

        The marina now has a new laundry facility that also houses two bathrooms. I believe it is climate controlled. My boat was moored in the innermost dock and am in 10 feet of water. Nice floating docks. Chris, the dockmaster who assisted me, was very helpful. This is the closest marina to downtown Georgetown, a couple blocks closer than the Boat Shed and Hazard Marine. For some reason, there were no seats in the bathrooms when I showered. It was only after I left that I noticed two plastic seats on the porch that should have been in the bathrooms for changing.

        Cruising News: My name is Chris Carroll. I am the Operations Mgr. for the Harborwalk Marina in Georgetown SC. I wanted to let everyone know that our much promised floating docks have been installed and are now in operation. We now have wireless internet, 100 channels of cable TV, 100amp service, a pump out that will suck the bottom out of your boat. There are about 729 feet of new floating dock, we have plenty of space now. Starting in two weeks will begin a new face lift on our older docks that we did not take out. Plans are being drawn now for a new 1800 sq foot bath house, lounge, dock office and laundry facility that we hope to have in by the fall season. We appreciate the patience everyone has had during our construction phases. Our dock master, David Rowe, is still with us. So gives a call and make a reservation today. 843-546-4250.

        Georgetown: Our favorite restaurant, Orange Blossom is closed. We were sorry to hear that the owner had a bad car accident and has returned to Greece. We highly recommend planning to be in Georgetown on anything but a Sunday. Most everything seems to be closed on Sundays. There is a nice looking store for provisioning – it looks like a wine shop, but there is fresh produce in the back. It’s on the main road, maybe a block towards town from Harborwalk Marina.
        Harborwalk Marina has brand new docks; there is a big floating face dock and it is only a few steps from downtown. Free wifi. Courteous service. There are no toilets or showers as they are in the process of building them. We tried to hail Hazzard Marine, a place we have stayed at before but there was no answer on the phone and no answers to our VHF hails.

        I live at Wild Dunes and eat at Morgans Creek Grill at the Isle of Palms marina quite often. They do a very good job with fresh seafood. Happy hour is 4 to 7 week days as long as you sit at the bar, either on the first floor or upstairs. Appetizers are half price and beers, wine and cocktails are reduced price. The mussels (only available on the first floor) are to die for.
        In season they have an oyster roast on Saturday afternoons in November, December. Usually have music on weekends. Good Spot.

        Isle of Palms Marina – always a great stop when coming back from Georgetown. Morgan Creek restaurant has only improved and now has outdoor dining, along with their full upstairs covered deck or indoor areas. The meals only get better every time we go! So much to do at IOP Marina – several rental places for wave runners, kayaks, or stand up paddle boards. The beach is a short bike ride away and facilities are in great shape.

        We needed to wait around for a new air handler in the Charleston area, and wanted to get north of Charleston Harbor. Called Isle of Palms to make a reservation, but they told us they were full. When we explained our predicament, the dockmaster told us to come up and he would find a place for us somewhere. We stayed there 3 days having a new air handler installed and getting the system flushed. The ship store and deli were excellent and we had no problem provisioning and even ordered lunch from the deli, which we ate at the dockside tables. We had dinner at Morgan Creek Grill and listened to a live blues duo while we looked out over the boaters coming and going. A nice family atmosphere.

It can be somewhat noisy. Limited transient dockage. Wi-fi is free, and an excellent marina store with everything a cruiser might want. Good eating choices nearby.

        Isle of Palms Marina is OK if you can get a berth inside, as the face dock gets rocked, even tho it is in a No Wake Zone. Friendly enough, good heads and showers, a large convenience store, and the restaurant nest to it is very good indeed.|

        Isle of Palms just north of charleston on ICW. ($2.00 a foot) Earlierir in the year they were working on rebuilding bulkheads and docks but it seems to be almost all completed. Great dockhands. Cable and wifi at docks. Very clean and well appointed showers to include a Sauna, yes a sauna. They have the nicest ships store for many a mile. It includes a deli, TV viewing area, boat stuff, wine and cheese stuff, general groceries, souveneirs, and nick nacks. Restaurant on premises with great food and one of the nicer views on ICW. $4.00 Happy hour appetizers, make sure to try the fried portabellas with blue cheese dip my gosh they are great. It is also a fairly well protected place to sit out bad weather. Seriouosly a very nice little marina to stay at with an exceptional restaurnat and view (also not too bad prices). Call ahead to reserve a spot in season though!

There are 2 things that we would like to mention, #1…We wish they had a general store on site instead of having to leave the property to buy soft drinks, cleaning supplies etc. #2 and most important to us….I wish they would make people put their dogs on LEASHES at all times….I have 2 small pugs that are on leashes and when ur big dog comes over and gets my dogs riled up…your dog better not cause me a problem, because I will protect them at all costs…so keep your dog on a leash!!!!!

        My wife and I were recently visiting in Charleston and came across the Charleston Harbor Marina and Resort.
        I was impressed with the manager Kelly Poe ( 843-284-7065) and his efforts to welcome new boaters. They are considering offering an AGLC discount and being sponsors. Although the marina is across the bridge from Charleston they offer shuttle rides every 30 minutes or so to and from Charleston. I plan on staying there this fall.

        We are staying at Charleston Harbor Marina and find it an excellent facility. It’s really windy (20-30knots) but we are comfortable in a slip. Shuttle serve to Charleston was convenient. Enjoyed a nice light supper at the Reel Bar. Definitely recommend this marina if you can’t get in to the City Marina.

        My husband and I made Charleston Harbor Marina our 1st stop in a month long cruise out of Southport. Capt. Stan, the Harbormaster, and his crew made our stay carefree and he even offered to make reservations for our destinations along our route. The breakwater out front does its job to deaden the wakes of boat/ship traffic and lessens any current, which makes the boat happy. The showers and bathrooms were clean, laundry on site and the hotel amenities and a shuttle to Charleston are available. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to stopping again on our return.

        On a trip from SC to New England my wife and I stayed at this first class marina both coming and going. It is under new management and it certainly shows it. We were treated very nicely by the dock hands and the use of the hotel amenities are phenomenal.

        We are doing the loop and arrived here at Charleston Harbor Marina and Resort June 1, 2011, departing July 6, 2011.

        This is a great marina for many reasons. The marina staff is responsive, friendly and knowledgeable. The docks are well maintained and easy to dock plus they are floating. The marina is associated with the resort where you can enjoy the pool and restaurant. Shuttle service is available that takes you to the city of Charleston, Sullivans Island, Shems Creek (great places to eat) or the major shopping center.

        The marina is close to many marina services for any type repairs.

        We plan to return and winter here.

        On May 10, 2011, “Hemisphere Dancer” stopped at Charleston Harbor Marina at Patriots Point. Harbormaster, Capt. Stan Jones, was happy to receive us, assign us a convenient slip to the showers/head, and provide us with information regarding this Charleston Resort. The breakwater surrounding the marina provided smooth, comfortable slips during my two-day stay, which included an early morning thunderstorm (no charge). The floating docks have water & electricity and free wi-fi. The showers and bathrooms are tiled, laundry next to baths, ice is available on the main dock, and the “Ollie the Trolley” shuttle van operates on the hour, free of charge, to downtown Charleston or Sullivan’s Island (i.e.Ft.Moultrie) from 10 am to 10 pm. Boaters have permission to use the Resort’s pool, spa, and restaurant for some very comfortable living. The restaurant features a private display of vintage, handcrafted, big game, fishing reels, two big TV’s to catch up on the latest weather or game, and free wi-fi. Attached to the Marina is Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum where for a small fee one may explore the USS Yorktown (CV-10), the submarine USS Clamagore (SS-343), a Destroyer USS Laffey (away in the yards), a Vietnam Support Base, Memorials, Gift Shop, and several movies documenting parts of WWII. Whew! I spent two days immersed in History! When I considered all of the services, luxuries, and activities available, I thought the marina transient fee of $2.00/foot was a bargain, and after receiving a Boat U.S. discount of 5%, I definitely plan to return.

        I sure hope they’re better! We stopped here for a night right before we offshored to Beaufort, NC and while docking we found a 3/4″ bolt protruding about 2″ from their dock. It ended up gouging a hole down to the fiberglass (literally the day after we spent 2 weeks in 100+ degree weather every day compounding, polishing and waxing our hull) about 6 inches long. After MUCH complaining, they finally had us fill out a report and said they would “consider” paying for having it fixed after we got an estimate. We got the estimate, sent it to them and they never even would return our calls. We ended up eating the $600 bill ourselves. Decent place, but we’ll never go there again and we’ll never recommend them to anyone due to their attitudes both during and after the event.

        Stopped by to refuel and I was impressed with the facility. The “attitude” of the entire marina seemed better than last fall and prior to that with the marina crew seeming to be happy to help with anything needed. I’m not sure what the change was, but the entire facility was more “user friendly” and I’ll definitely stop by again. Food was good and the “Reel Bar” is a blast. Customer service has definitely become “first class”.

        Charleston Harbour Marina is a first class facility as can be seen by “Millionaires Row” – though expensive to dock. You can dinghy in for a limited time. Virtually all the marinas in Charleston are expensive compared to marinas north above Georgetown – $4 a foot for overnight, $13 per ft a month plus power is typical……. You can moor out opposite the City Dock in the Ashley River – but a strong current and a reputation for nightime stealing . Go further up the Wando or Wapoo Cut for more restful and secure locations.

        Our final destination on our cruise south was the Charleston Harbor Resort Marina. We arrived with heavy winds, rough water on an incoming tide. Our call earlier to announce our arrival for both fuel and our assigned slip; we were greeted with a positive response that we will watch for your arrival and assist at the fuel dock with 3 dock hands. Once we made the starboard turn at marker 34 and then starboard into the entrance through the breaker wall, our concerns were brushed aside. We were assisted at the fuel dock as stated, and assisted with docking at our slip which was wonderful as we looked out to the huge Yorktown as it was directly in front of us. We spent 3 nights at this marina and the only down side was that the laundry room only had one washer working as the other was coin jammed and there was a long line to use the other. It was repaired the following day.
        Be well and cruise safe,

        Charleston, SC — The South Carolina Clean Marina Committee has granted Clean Marina certification to Cooper River Marina (CRM), located in North Charleston, SC and administered by the Charleston County Park & Recreation Commission.
        A flag and certificate were awarded to the marina managers at the South Carolina Marine Association Summer Marine Education Conference. SCMA administers the SC Clean Marina Program in cooperation with the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control and the SC Department of Natural Resources. Although a voluntary program, it challenges SC marinas and boatyards to manage facility operations as responsible stewards of the environment.
        Matt Cooper, General Manager of CRM, said they made over a span of three years improvements“upon existing policies and procedures to conform to the standards. These included maintaining a clean and operational pump out boat, proper storage of hazardous materials, providing boater education and signage on environmentally friendly practices, recycling and proper disposal of materials, selling and encouraging the use of environmentally friendly products, as well as fabrication of spill response and emergency action procedure documents, among others.”

        Currents in the Cooper River at this marina can run in the vicinity of 3 knots with storm run off on a spring tide ebb. We had no trouble dealing with them with a single screw sailboat. Just come in just before slack before ebb and leave the same way.
        The current issue here is that wind against tide can set up quite a chop. Pick the downwind side of the face dock or find another place.
        Yes it is remote, and yes the neighborhood is not so hot, but the staff is excellent, the facilities are well maintained. For an overnight stay is is a very good deal compared to the marinas for people with deep, deep pockets on the other rivers which also have their share of current and wind issues.

        I have been familiar with the Cooper River Marina since it was new after Huricane Hugo wiped out the old US Navy sailing facility. It was originally built as a US Navy military marina. When the Base closed the Charleston County Parks took over. It is a very nice facility and the employees and manager Matt Driscole are the best. However the county parks has never recognized the military men and women who paid for the marina through non-appropriated funds through the use of commissarys and exchanges. Its just a hard spot with me, but I feel the County should honor the military with a military rate for long term dockage. After all the sailors and airmen paid for it.

        We stayed at Cooper River for a month in November and would go back again. Didn’t see any dust from loading ships. Staff there was most accommodating and offered us rides if we needed, including all the way to the airport. Like the fact that it’s next to a Navy base. Felt very secure leaving the boat there. Also, nice docks and good facilities.

        The Cooper River Marina is run by Charleston, County bit more reasonable but remote in a North Charleston Industrial area. Need a car and I d believe they are still unloading concrete ships up there and lots of nice concrete dust to wash off your boat from time to time.

        Two years ago we left Morning Star at Cooper River Marina, in Charleston. The facility is just fine but it is out away from town. I wouldn’t want to use it for a brief “tourist” stay but for short term storage its just fine. It is owned/operated by either the City or the County (I don’t remember which), has fairly new docks and they operate a courtesy shuttle. I got a ride to the auto parts store and also back from the airport when I returned my rental car. They will take you into town to do your sightseeing but you need to hop a cab back. I’d do it again.

        We left Morning Star at Cooper River Marina for almost a month last fall while we returned home for Thanksgiving. Actually, we paid for a month but left the boat there for approx. two weeks. It was an OK storage facility but not vry good for enjoying the city. Having said that, its WAY cheaper than the City Marina. We considered leaving the boat at Ladies Island at Beaufort but we couldn’t put a one-way car rental together from there.

        In the past 5 years CAVALIER has spent over 15 nights at the Charleston City Marina. A great marina as long as you follow a few simple rules:
        1. Do not tie up on the outside of the outside pier unless you gross over 100 tons. It is pretty rocky.
        2. Do not tie up close where the outside pier is connected to the stationery pier with a ribbed, non-slip steel ramp. The security cart that runs across that ramp all night long will make for a sleepless night.
        3. Do be careful with the current – docking should be done into the current and slowly and carefully. When departing, plan your get-away carefully so that you have a safe basin to turn around, if necessary.

        We spent the winter this year at the Charleston City Marina (Megadock) and were very pleased with it. I would not go in to the Maritime Center on the Cooper River or the City Marina on the Ashley side at other than slack tide if I didn’t have to. The current can be quite swift in either. Lots of folks love the Maritime Center for its proximity to the Harris Teeter, the hardware store, and the dog park. It is also a shorter walk to the main part of town. We like the City Marina much better for a variety of reasons – the docks and the bath facilities, the friendly and helpful staff, the van which takes people downtown every hour on the hour and to West Marine (and an adjacent Harris Teeter) every day at 11:30 AM. The pumpout boat come to your boat pretty much on demand for $5. The dockage prices aren’t
        > that much higher than the Maritime Center, but the fuel prices aren’t cheap by any means. If you make a reservation ask to be on M dock near the bath house if possible. This shortens the walk to the parking lot. If you get at the end of the Megadock your shoes will get lots of wear during your stay. I would suggest you read the reviews of both places in Active Captain. Good luck!

The marina is extremely competent, has all the services you could want, provides shuttle service from the marina to downtown, and is very professionally managed. There is a great restaurant at the entrance to the marina, called The Variety Store. They serve excellent southern style food, breakfast/lunch/dinner, with an unexpected gourmet flair to the menu.

        We spent several days here in spring 2008 and fall 2009. Great facilities, staff and experiences. A shuttle takes you just about anywhere in the downtown area. Lots of shops, historic sites and restaurants.
        A pumpout boat will visit you dockside. The showers are private and well maintained. There only two downsides…the long walks ashore and how hard it is to cast off the lines and leave.

        Shuttle makes trips to the down town area on a regular schededule at no charge. Really a great city to spend a few days.

        I second the City Marina. I live in Charleston and keep my boat at the sister marina. The person to contact is McKenzie who is the delightful and lovely dock master. She knows the marina like the back of her hand. They have a shuttle that will take you to a limited number of places. I don’t have the marina number handy but you can get it at I think.

        We’ve stayed there several times. After several negative experiences at the anchorage just off the marina (including being dragged for a half mile by our anchor chain when a trawler grabbed a hold of it) we usually end up staying there. Most often, transients get put on the 1/4 mile long Megadock. I would suggest that you ask to be put on the inside of the Megadock if you go to this marina for the reasons Tim mentioned – higher winds can make the outside pretty rolly. The good of the marina – private individual shower rooms, free courtesy shuttle to anywhere in town that you want to go, nice people, fuel at your “slip”, cable, etc. They also run a special – stay 6 nights and get your seventh free. The bad – very expensive, LONG 1/3 mile walk down the Megadock (did I mention long?) to shore (so 2/3 mile round trip to your boat if at the end of the Megadock, which is where we often get put).

        Charleston City Marina is a great facility that has everything needed for a night or a permanet slip.Docking on the outside of the Mega Dock in winds above 20 knots can get rough & there are strong currents. Good power, clean rest rooms, fair fuel prices, great staff & management that helped revise the Charleston boat tax time limit from 60 to 180 days per year.

        We spent the weekend at the Charleston City (Megadock) Marina a few weeks ago, and it is really good (as usual). The service is great, and the van that takes you downtown is handy. It was pretty busy the weekend we were there, because a large yacht had come in from the Bahamas, and they were stocking up on groceries, etc., so the marina personnel were busy for most of Saturday helping with that. The yacht took on 20,000 gallons of diesel, so there are a lot of really big yachts that stop there. The Variety Store restaurant still has very good food, especially breakfast, and it is an easy walk from the marina.
        The best thing is that the gasoline operation has been moved over to the Ashley Marina, so there is not a lot of boat traffic in the area of the bath and showers. That used to be very congested when gas was being sold there. It is now a good place to dock, because it is very convenient to the bathrooms and showers.

        No change from what it used to be. Plenty of face dock available for fuel. Just be mindful of the current. Dock hands are helpful as always.

        We stayed a couple of days at the City Marina in Charleston and found it to be very well run and enjoyable.

        We stayed at the city Marina in Charleston and found the facilities to be terrific and very hospitable. The free transportation is great to get around town. There are so many great restaurants our favorites were Justines kitchen and Sticky fingers for ribs. Anchoring off the marina is tricky because of the fast and reversing current. The anchorage near the coast guard station is too small and shallow space is taken up by what looks like more permanent residents.

        Charleston City Marina – in 2005, I stayed in a 38-foot sailboat on the outside of the “mega dock” and found the wakes to be untenable. The boat was surging violently into the dock. I requested a space along the inside of the dock and was assigned a spot, but advised to wait unil slack tide. Because I feared for my boat, I moved right away, and had a near disaster with the current. All ended up well, however. I’d advise anyone with a sailboat or other “small” (i.e., less than mega proportions) to avoid the outside of the mega dock and, if the boat is lightly powered such as a sailboat, wait until slack tide to try for the inside of the mega dock. I haven’t had these problems in previous visits when assigned to a regular slip at the west end of the marina. I haven’t tried the part that’s now at the Ashley Marina, west of the bridge.

        I stayed 2 weeks in May and liked it. This is a great place for large boats, and they cater to them. My 40’ trawler was small. Bathrooms and showers were excellent and always clean. WIFI works well. Being close to downtown is a plus. Courtesy van is very accommodating.

        Charleston City Marina is run very professionally. Easy fueling on the Mega Dock. If you want to stay on that dock, tell them you want to refuel, and that is where they put you. Beware of tidal flow if they put you on the inside.
        Captain John Cashen

        I keep my boat at City Marina and have had repairs/maintenance work done at Ross Marine for several years. I have found both of these facilities to be excellent. David Rogers is the dockmaster at City Marina and is always looking for ways to improve! The personnel are always friendly and helpful, the fuel is always fresh, the food at the Marina Variety restaurant is inexpensive and good. The shuttle service runs every hour and once per day goes to West Marine. I would recommend a slip inside of the mega dock since there is frequent traffice in the harbor and if you are on the outside of the mega dock you will have frequent “wakes”.
        Good Luck!

        We spend a very pleasant couple of days there this March, staying on the face dock of the original Charleston City Marina (not the Ashley Marina facilities). We had no trouble coming in against the current, and found all the dockhands we met to be very pleasant and helpful. We filled up with diesel right at our slip, as the fuel hoses there are quite long. The shower facilities at the marina were not too wonderful, however — cramped and not all that well ventilated. Otherwise, it was a great visit.
        Best regards, Bob and Janet Schwerzel

        We stopped at City Marina this year and were put on the mega yacht dock. The day we were leaving, the current and wind were pushing on the dock. We were a single with a bow thruster. The staff didn’t have a clue how to get us off the dock. Thankfully, the captain did and got us off without a hitch. Other than that, the stay was great.

        Very nice, clean facility. Friendly and helpful staff. Convenient location. Grocery, drug stores and restaurants close by with courtesy car provided. Current can be tricky when tide is running,, but staff will assist with lines when docking. Will stop here again and recommend it highly to others.

        We spent two nights at St. John’s for our Charleston visit. It was Race Week and all our normal venues were taken. This was our second visit and things are still excellent. The best change is that they now have a modern courtesy car for local shopping trips. Normally we rent a car from this marina to visit the city and surrounding areas. Enterprise has several offices that will pick you up. We were able to use the courtesy car the first evening to see a music performance at the Circular Congregational Church, which saved us a days car
        After 9 years of doing tourist parts of Charleston, it is a nice change to tour the outskirts. BTW it was too cold for the pool but last year it was a refreshing stop. We did not use the lounge.
        Great service and modern facilities.

        We stayed here on January 12 2010 on oue way south. It is a great place. Everyone is friendly and helpful. It is so late in the year that the store is closed, however they did offer to open it if we needed something. The laundry and bathrooms are first class, they look brand new and were spotless. You will need food on the boat as the restaurant is still under construction. They also have a pool, that needless to say was closed this time of year. One thing, the diesel pump is VERY SLOW. IT too me around half an hour to pump 220 gallons. However, the word is that this will be fixed in the near future.
        The bottom line, if you are in the area you can’t go wrong with this place.

        This is a beautiful yacht harbor. Everything at this marina is brand new and definitely a first class stay. There is a pool that is open to transients, laundry, wifi, cable, georgeous showers, a ship store that offers a wide range of amenities. This is one of the best places to stay on the ICW in Charleston, SC. I make sure to stop by this marina every year when I travel from florida to maine. Currently, they offer non-ethanol gas for 2.99 as well as diesel for 1.99. Yes, it is 1.99! Overall, this is just a wonderful place to stay and very friendly employees that will help you dock and leave. There currently is not a restaurant, but I was told it is coming in the future. Definitely, check this place out the next time you are in the area.

        A brief update: Showers and Laundry are brand new and open; they are very very nice. There is also a pool but I’m unsure what the policy is for transients. Fuel dock is now open and has gasoline and diesel. The small ships store usually has something fixed for lunch, has ice, beer, and soda. The pumpout boat is very convenient.
        Overall this is a very nice marina. As previously mentioned, there is shopping nearby and Phil or someone will probably run you over there; ask around when you get here, don’t be shy. We have stayed here since last November and have enjoyed our stay very much.

        St John’s (old Buzzards Roost) ($1.75 a foot) Stono river just before Elliot Cut.
        Undergoing reconstruction of the Restaurant and soon the Shower building. Not sure when the shower building will be done but the Restaurant looks as if it still needs a month or more until completion. Current showers are clean and nice. Small store with minimal snacks in the office. Face docks are good condition with cable and wifi. The strong current that runs through the marina slips helps put you on face dock when docking. If no wind is expected this is a great place to wait until morning to go through Elliot cut. Leave dock at 0810 and hit the Wappoo Creek bridge
        for it’s 0900 opening. If the weather is windy just be advised that the strong current also amplifies swells in a southerly blow over 15 knots. Long fetch up Stono river combined with an outgoing tide will result in very uncomfortable bouncing and hobby horsing at the dock. Phil (Dock Master) lives in Marina and is a great guy. He usually offers to drive you to closest store if you want. Just remember that gas costs money if you ask him to drive you somewhere. They also advertise a shuttle to downtown but I forgot to ask about that.

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.

        I like the Beaufort Downtown Marina. They are right downtown with several restaurants very close by. Blackstones is best for breakfast. They have a loaner car for grocery shopping. If you want to anchor or take a mooring ball, you can tie up to the park wall during the day, but not overnight. Tides are pretty swift in that area.

        “Becoming a Clean Marina involves using best management in all phases of the marina’s operations, SCMA President Iggy del Valle said in congratulating the recipients. “It isn’t an easy process and, in some cases, involves added expenses.” The marinas go beyond normal regulatory requirements in managing potential pollutants, keeping their facilities as “green” as possible and educating their customers on better environmental actions to keep our waterways clean.

        We enjoyed two nights at the Beaufort Town Marina in June of 2011. A great location with nice people and they even offer you a “courtesy car” for grocery shopping. The docks get a little rocky when the wind is out of the S or SW – we were on an outside tie-up. The shore power on our dock kept tripping – we were at the end of the dock and it was totally full – not enough power to handle the load. Don’t miss taking a guided tour of the town – great history.

They are working on installing mooring balls in the near future. The current can be quick and tricky at times, the staff will always have you come in against the current.

        Bermudiana has stayed at the Town Docks many times. We love it as we can walk down the street and see everything of interest. Lots of excellent restaurants .
        People at the marina are very nice to the boaters.
        The ramp up from the dock is SUPER STEEP at high tide !!!!
        The marsh otters were coming aboard at night to sit on the back swim area of the power boats..they do their thing all over the boat…but..the marina is trying hard to stop them !
        The current on the outside is fast. The docks are easy to get into and out of and the passengers will have no problems getting on and off the boat .
        The marina car is great and you can go about a mile or so up the street to the grocery store and get anything you need.
        The showers are clean and are great .
        We can not say enough good things about this marina.

The current is fast here, but they got us in without hitting another boat. This was November 2012. The chocolate shop in town is great as is a shop selling locally made products. Very friendly city.

        This stop is a must-stop for us. We love the town and the people. We took advantage of the marina’s courtesy car which has a keychain with a Bi-Lo grocery store discount card on it. There is also a K-Mart near the Bi-Lo.

        Like many other boaters, we had issues backing out of our slip against the current. If I had understood the arrangement of my assigned slip and the current prediction for the following morning, I would have gone stern-in. Luckily, the slip on the pier next to my boat was empty so we managed to spring our boat against the current and around into the neighboring slip so we could power out into the current.

        If your boat has limited power or maneuverability, ask for and alongside tie-up on the main pier.

        I encountered almost the same situation [current] at the Beaufort, South Carolina municipal marina, and on trying to back out against the current with ample on shore help was in fact caught and turned sideways against the main dock. It was quite a feat getting the bow turned back into the current and finally out. For power boaters this is not much of a problem, but for sailboats with single screw auxiliary diesels it is a big challenge.

Lots of beautiful old homes and you can get alot more out or what you see if you take a walking tour or horse drawn cart with guide. Plum’s and Saltus are two outstanding resturants.

        Spent the last two nights here becuase of cold temps and high winds. We were placed on the outside close to the fuel pumps. Aside from a very strong current and water slapping the boat a bit at night, we had no problems. Dock hands and office staff are top motch. We used the courtesy car to get groceries and a few sundries. The laundry room was clean and the machines in great shape. Restaurants and shopping is right next door to the marina, within 100 yards of the docks.

        Spent 2 days there in September and found the marina to be very convenient to all of the downtown attractions. The restaurants were great but you will need to use the courtesy car if you need provisions or a drug store. The dockmaster was very friendly but was working alone and slammed late afternoon when the transients rolled in. No problems with the shorepower. We did have a pretty good blow on the 2nd day and it got a little bouncy even on the inside of the face dock until a 60′ Hatt tied up on the outside of us. I would definitely advise against the outside of the face dock for small cruisers.

        I arrived a day ahead of the remnants of Hurricane Ida, along with 20 other boats. Sat through five days of rain. Marina staff were terrific. Ships store excellent. Showers. heads were kept clean in spite of the crowd. Just steps away from great restaurants, coffee shops, bookstores. You have to plan ahead when you leave, though, and most boats on the inside slips needed to be “warped around” by had during slack tide so that they would be stern to the dock, bow out. Backing with or against the current is not an option. Marina staff are excellent at this job.

        Beaufort City Marina. Great Marina and as the name says, it is right down town. Great to walk around. We have been there a number of times and ate in a lot of places and have generally good meals. Can’t think of any names. Also, a little known feature is that they let you use the dinghy dock for free when you anchor out. I never asked, but I always put my trash in their containers.

        Downtown Marina of Beaufort. What can you say about this marina but good things. Just be prepared for the roaring current and follow the very experienced dock hands instructions and you are OK. If you get stuck in an inside corner–as we have twice–best make friends with all your neighbors and let the dock hands get you out!! Tell them your departure plans and they will “spin” your boat around for you so that your bow will be into the current when you leave!!

        We docked at the Downtown Marina of Beaufort late Nov 2008. The personel were pleasant and helpful. True to its name it is right downtown. The only negative was the shorepower, it wouldn’t run a single 50 amp cord and we had to run our genset all night.

        Downtown Marina Beaufort has done a nice job of bringing back a great tradition. The town and rest. Have become very tourist oriented. We stayed there for a week in July with the Power Squardron meetings and enjoyed our stay.

        Easy in and out. Get in early so you don’t get the outside of the dock. That could be a little rough. Hard to get bikes up the ramp at extreme low tide, but worth having them to ride through town. Great place to explore by bike.

        We stayed one night at Downtown Marina – nice, but the current will keep you on your toes. I docked into the current – no problem. When the current reversed in the middle of the night I was reminded why you should lock the wheel.
