        Kindred Spirit III enjoyed a delightful evening at Port Royal Marina. We’ve been to Beaufort, SC, many time but never to PRM. It isn’t convenient to downtown Beaufort but there is a loaner vehicle, of which we and another couple, took advantage. The town is cycling distance and the marina has loaner bikes. A Doc in a Box and CVS are [within] walking distance. The staff was absolutely wonderful, kind, and genuinely caring. If you’re a paying customer, 2 nights gets you one free. The restaurant adjacent to the marina has GREAT burgers. The marina has wifi, book exchange, captain’s lounge and ship’s store.

        Bill’s is indeed a great liquor, wine, beer store. Here’s another local tip if you are a microbrew connoisseur. If you spend the night or two at Port Royal Landing Marina, just south of the Beaufort swing bridge, there is an amazing selection of about 20 microbrews on draught at, of all places, the PIGGLY WIGGLY, about a half mile around the corner from the marina. Growlers are available in a couple sizes. There is also a larger selection available in bottles. PLUS, the small shopping center where “THE PIG” as it is known, is located also has a Sears Hardware, a West Marine, and a hard liquor store as well. Marina staff can give you complete directions. They can also have a loaner car you can use if you really want to load up on groceries and growlers.

        Port Royal Landing marina is great place. It’s a friendly, family operated facility. They take care of their customers! The Back Porch Grill is the on-site restaurant; the marina has gasoline, diesel, and a ships store, and a courtesy car (pickup truck) is available. If you stay two nights, the third night is free. AND… the local live-aboards host a pot-luck cookout on the marina deck every Friday. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

        Port Royal Landing is a truly premier operation. Tom Wilson and his staff are really wonderful! A class act! It’s a long walk from the dock to the marina/restaurant, but they’ll come and get ya in a golf cart if you have mobility problems.

        I stayed at the Port Royal Landing Marina on April 18th. Even though the current was rather swift I was able to turn my 32’ Grand Banks around and dock on the inside of the face dock into the current. The dock helpers were great! The marina manager was a young man who was full of southern hospitality and made me feel very welcome. We were given a little goodie bag with several interesting items. While my wife borrowed the courtesy truck and ran errands around town, I borrowed one of the courtesy bikes and rode over the bridge to Lady’s Island. Had a few cold beers and shrimp basket at the local restaurant. Everything was delicious. Will definitely make this a stop on my return trip through this area.

        Spent 6 days there last fall going south. Great marina, excellent people, transient car, decent marine store, OK restaurant. The crew smoked six turkeys for Thanksgiving dinner for the live-aboards and transients. A bit open to north and south winds. Would stop there again.

        Oct 12 Port Royal Landings Marina, one of the most friendly marinas we have been in, great place to provision via their courtesy vehicle, Publix is the place to go, also downtown Beaufort is a short ride away. We would highly recommend this marina, also pay for 2 nights get 3 for free, nice since weather has us holed up here.

        First visit to Port Royal Landing Marina on Jun 5, 2011 was such a wonderful surprise. As we approach for our docking there are two staff members with smiling faces on the dock ready to assist. And they knew just what they were doing with the our lines. Once the boat was secured there were handshakes and introductions and a very warm welcome. All the facilities and the grounds were very clean and well maintained.
        The marina has city water, portable pump-out system, Ship’s Store, 30/50 amp, cable TV, gas & diesel fuel, wireless Internet, floating docks, restrooms/showers/laundromat and a small restaurant/bar offering a 10% discount for overnight boaters. Other restaurants are nearby. Two courtesy vehicles are available. A Piggy-Wiggly grocery and a West Marine are about two miles away.
        [The marina features a] comfortable boater’s lounge – well stocked book exchange and coffee and TV and a nice view of the water.

        We contacted Port Royal Marina and made arrangements to tie up to the outside dock as we were arriving after the marina closed for the day. We managed a easy unassisted tie up despite the wind and current. It’s amazing how you can do that when there is no one around to watch you mess up.
        With the wind blowing straight up the river, the outside dock proved to be a less than desirable location, but we were in for the night with electricity, water and a dock that wasn’t going anywhere.
        We found several of our cruising friends there the next day so we decided to take advantage of the marina’s 3 for 2 deal (pay for 2 nights, get 3rd free). The staff and facilities were great. We used the marina’s courtesy car, drove to downtown Beaufort for lunch and some groceries.
        A great place to stop.

        Port Royal Landing Marina is a well run marina with kindly management and a great store, we stayed there last year, and as a result are taking the Yacht Club of Hilton Head Island on an outing there on Septenber 12. It is the only marina that I have stayed at that sent a card to thank you for your business. a really nice touch. I was there last Monday to finalize arrangements and the place looks a good as ever, The deck outside the office/store is really great.

        Our ‘home marina’ is Port Royal Landing Marina. It is hard to find a nicer marina. It is modern, clean, private and friendly. I say private because there are few tourists compared to downtown Beaufort marina which is wonderful too, but ‘busy’ with tourists walking the docks.
        PRLM has a nice live aboard and boat owners group who like to get together on weekends and BBQ on the new,covered boaters deck. There is also a pretty good burger place right there…..good burgers and bar, though smokey…….one of only two bars in Beaufort County which allow smoking still. Unfortunate because its a cute bar. The marina store has a good selection of things in the marina store and I hear they will start catering more to fishing folk in the near future. Showers,restrooms, and laundry sparkling clean and modern. Also there is a wash and fold laundry mat a few blocks away who will wash dry and fold your laundry for a few bucks more than it would cost you to do it yourself and they can usually turn it around in 24 hours.
        At least one REALLY good diesel repair guy is nearby and a good honest semi-retired repairman.
        They have a courtesy car and there are several grocery stores nearby, a West Marine and more restaurants than you can shake a stick at! Also a CVS within walking distance. Pump out at the face dock or in slip.
        There is usually quite a current running there and 7-9 ft tides but all docks are floating. I strongly recommend waiting for slack tide before trying to move into an inside slip. We have seen professional captains try to attempt docking inside with disastrous and loud results. Also they are beginning construction on the second phase of the 65ft bridge already in place so there will be noise from that to a certain extent weekdays.
        We will be heading back south this Friday and will be able to put our two cents in on a lot of the other items on the list as well!!

        We spent a week over July 4th at Port Royal Landing Marina. From the moment we got there we were made to feel at home. We used the courtesy car a few times for errands, and got around Beaufort easily with the staff’s directions. Had a great time visiting Beaufort. I recommend Hemingway’s for a light lunch along the riverwalk. Prices were reasonable, and staff was friendly. The current at PRL can be quite a challenge, but the staff helped us turn the boat around so we could exit easily from inside the T-head the next morning. We even got a follow-up post card after our stay. I would stay here again any time we are in the area.

        Port Royal Landing is a great place for cruisers. My wife and I stopped here for a one night transient stay last fall, on our way south to Florida for the winter. We liked the marina and the people so much, we changed our plans and signed up for a year’s dockage! What makes the difference is “the people”. The marina is a family run facility, where the owners are on-site and take a personal interest in customer satisfaction. Plus, there’s a friendly, active group of live-aboards at Port Royal Landing. “BIll the Pirate” ( a local cruiser ) runs the grill for Friday and Saturday evening get togethers on the covered deck overlooking the docks. Any cruiser or transient in port is automatically invited and eagerly welcomed by the group! My wife and I have cruised the ICW from the Florida Keys to Chesapeake Bay, and this is the “friendliest” marina we’ve found!
        More details; The facilities are modern and well maintained, with floating docks, cable TV, Wi-Fi, and 30-amp and 50-amp hookups. Gas, diesel, water, and pumpouts are available. There’s a coin operated laundry, and clean showers. There’s a well stocked ships store on-site, and the “Back Porch Grill” restaurant has the best cheeseburger in town. If you need to re-supply, you can sign out the marina’s courtesy car.
        Our one year stay here is almost up, and we plan to resume cruising next month. But, we’ve revised our plans now to do six months cruising, and six months at the dock… at Port Royal Landing!

        I’d be remiss if I didn’t also put in a plug for port Royal Landing Marina, just on the north side of the high bridge over the Beaufort River about 3 miles or so south of Beaufort. We haven’t stayed there (we keep our boat at Lady’s Island Marina in Beaufort), but we frequently buy our fuel here, and we’ve always been pleased with the quality of the fuel, the prices, and the helpful dockhands.

        Great Marina! Family owned and very helpful. Free wi-fi and clean showers.
        The first day, rather than call a taxi, they offered to drive us to Beaufort (SC) for the touring thing. When we called back to find the tel for the taxi, the owners daughter, Lee, came to pick us up in her personal car. They have a courtesy car and if no one else is asking for it, you can use it for 2-3 hours. We took it to the lighthouse at Hunting Island and just called back every hour to make sure that no one else needed it.
        We had blowing winds the first day and wanted to get the big red round ball fenders. They did not have the right size and called their supplier while we waited. We had them by the next day. They want to make sure that the transients have the same amenities as the downtown marina. They did a great job!

        Cruising News: Port Royal Landing Marina, S.C. below Beaufort S.C.. Just spent three days there and it was a great experiance all around. They said they’re a Salty Southeast Cruiser’s facility and that was good to hear. We found the staff extremely responsive, helpful and professional. The slip fees and fuel prices were lower than we had seen since leaving Stuart Fl.. Boat U.S. members rec. discounts, and getting 100gal of fuel gets you a discount. They have a courtesy car, 2hr limit, and shopping and medical facilities are very near by. If you want to go into Beaufort, they will drop you off and pick you up. It’s quiet and relaxing at Port Royal Marina. Also, there is a restaurant on the premises. They serve among other items, a great hamburger and shrimp gumbo. We highly recommend Port Royal Marina.

I havn’t had a WalMart fix since we left Wilmington, N.C. The staff is extremely courteous and most willing to help. We would highly recommend this marina.

        Stayed at Skull Creek Marina for 2 nights. Decent depths, don’t remember the exact #’s but we draw 6′ and didn’t have any problems. Bit of an older facility, could use a facelift but everything was clean. Only one washer and dryer and the washer wasn’t working while we were there. Riding our bikes to the nearest shopping/dining area was about a 10-12 mile round trip thru a very pretty gated community. Had lunch at a steakhouse called Frankie Bones. Couple of other restaurants in the shopping area along with a Harris Teeter grocery store. Heard there was a nice restaurant somewhere with-in dinking distance but never did find it.

        Hey all I stopped for 3 days due to sickness and Jack and Bourbon were both friendly and they checked in on me regularly. If your looking for good food and a good nights sleep give them a try. The restaurant was pricey but the food is great and the ladies will go the extra mile. I was so sick and the restaurant gave me a big bowl of soup and would not take a penny. If you stop make sure you have a biscuit for Bourbon, Jack’s Labrador and give him a hug from me. Before you leave don’t forget to top off your tanks as the fuel is the lowest price around.

        We usually stay at Hilton Head’s Harbortown Marina, but decided to check out the more northerly facilities on the other end of Callibogue Sound. Hilton Head Harbor Marina was this year’s experiment and we confess a lack of information had us curious.
        Perhaps the reason for so little information is that there is transient dockage only at the fuel dock. The dockmaster said it was 120 feet on the outside and 80 on the inside. Do your math and that’s not many boats if there’s a fat catamaran there — and there were two our visit.
        The inside protected marina, we heard, has serious shoaling problems as in zero feet of water at the bottom of the considerable tide.
        If you are one of the half dozen transients, you get access to a small swimming pool, tennis courts, adequate showers and laundry.
        A big bonus, it seems from reviews we have read, is the on-site Sunset Grille restaurant. It’s reported to be one of the best restaurants on Hilton Head. Google it and you’ll find that it is a destination for foodies.
        With a Boat US or SeaTow card, dockage is $1.60 a foot an electric $4 for 30 amp hook up, likely one of the lowest dockage rates in the area.
        It was impressively gnatty the early spring night we spent there. I’m not sure if that’s seasonal or a feature of its location on the waterway as opposed to a dredged harbor with less natural surroundings.
        Excellent sunrise and sunset views from the fuel dock and low rates are a fair trade for the occasional wake of a passing fast boat. We spent a comfortable night there — superb compared with our rock and
        roll night at The City Marina in Charleston, which you will read about in our next report. Stay tuned!

        Just wanted to comment on the staff and marina facilities at Windmill Harbour . We kept our 43′ motor yacht there over this past winter (2015-16) and believe there is no better choice in the Hilton Head area. Very professional marina staff and pleasant location. The marina is in a gated community so it is safe and secure, and the marina is protected by a lock system which keeps the water depth constant in the marina. It is home to the South Carolina Yacht Club so many nice boats and activities. They welcome transient boaters as well as those for longer stays. One thing to be aware of is that access to stores and restaurants will require transportation as it is a residential area.

        We too are in Windmill Harbour and really do enjoy the marina. We’ve been there over 4 years and are going to use it as our home base when we begin cursing full time 3 years from now. It is the most weather protected marina I’ve ever been in. Good clean fuel, easy in and out, and 5+’ at low tide in the approach.

        We are docked in Windmill Harbour Marina.
        This is a great hurricane spot with a lock so no tides or currents, and homes all around the marina for wind protection, but the marina association discourages full time liveaboards for more than 14 days a month.
        Stay safe,

        Claiborne –
        We just departed our favorite Hilton Head Island stop – Palmetto Bay marina. This is the best marina to access the central section of Hilton Head. Most stores, supplies and restaurants are within biking distance on the bike trail or just off the trail. Cruisers will find all their regular stores nearby: Publix, Starbucks, Panera, Fresh Market, etc. AND – the great Jazz Corner, one of the few small jazz clubs left in the country, serving excellent music and food every night.
        Palmetto Bay is less “upscale” than the other marinas on HH, and that’s what we like. Dockhands are friendly, great Sunrise Café for breakfast (6 am!) and lunch. Bathrooms and shower are shared with other marina and restaurant clientele, so shower timing is important.
        The very friendly Yacht Club of Hilton Head is on this property (no docks), and we have joined in their Friday dinner activities on previous stops here. These YC members are very proud that their club staffed the Olympics sailing races several years ago when the Savannah YC turned down the opportunity.

        Everything about this marina has changed. All new inexperienced staff. Captain Woody’s has relocated, but the Black Marlin is as good as ever. Docks are being populated by “Derelict boats” being brought in by the management and rented to a non-boating clientele as housing. Used this marina for years, unfortunately it’s become necessary to bypass it for Shelter Cove Marina a mile beyond.

        If you’re willing to go a few miles off the ICW, you can visit Palmetto Bay marina on Broad Creek. If you have a deep draft vessel, DO NOT try to cut across the sandbar at G29A. Local power boats do this, but it’s strictly “local knowledge”. The safe passage is go around Green 1 marking Calibogue shoal and enter the mouth of Broad Creek. This will lead you upstream to Palmetto Bay marina on the starboard side, just before you reach the bridge.
        The attraction for traveling cruisers isn’t the marina ( although yes, it’s nice ) but that it’s co-located with a local shopping center. There are multiple restaurants and shops, making for a pleasant stop over and a night out.

        Stayed here for three months (Dec 2012 – Mar 2013). Inside docks are comfortable and location is fairly protected in three directions. Dockmaster is friendly and attentive. Laundry faciities (one washer and dryer) & shower (1) is located in restaurant area (fairly private early in am).

        Had an excellent experience getting routine mechanical maintenance (adjusting Yanmar 3JH3E valves , adjusting idle speed, and checking hoses/belts) with Palmetto Bay Yacht Services. They are on site & efficiently performed requested work without looking for additional tasks. I would recommend their service.

        We spend a month or two right before and after hurricane season in Hilton Head. We love it. We keep a car in storage there. All the marinas are nice but we stay in Palmetto Bay Marina and love the marina and the surrounding area. A word of caution, boaters share the heads with several bars and restaurants. We use the facilities on our boat so we are OK with that arrangement. At the foot of the docks is Woody’s Bar and Grill, the Black Marlin and the Tiki Bar. And of course Glitzy’s for carry out food and beverage. The Sunrise Cafe may have the best breakfast we have had anywhere. All that in the complex at the foot of the marina. No car is needed.

        If you want some nightlife, stay at Palmetto Bay Marina on the way up the creek. There is a good restaurant there, Black Marlin, a decent outdoor tiki bar, and a more typical restaurant with lots of fried food along with other tourist delights. Docks are newer, but not the best. Parallel parking, no slips. People are friendly though and they have fuel.

        Broad Creek Marina–Hilton Head We stayed there in April. It seems they have limited dockage and their hours are limited as well. No complaints but not a great facility or experience overall. We did not find an onsite restaurant. Their is a facility onsite but was not available to us. A restaurant in a club across the street was available–but it was more than casual and the menu very pricey.

        Spent 4 nights here this past month. This is a beautiful and very well run marina. It is large and slips can be either close to the “action” or close to the marina office/store and showers. Regardless, one of the dock boys will show up in a golf cart to deliver you to your destination. Within walking distance there are several very nice restaurants and other shops. Transportation is also provided to the supermarket, or to the beach. Location is several miles off the ICW, up Broad Creek, and, as the name implies, it is very sheltered. Look forward to a return trip.

        Great location, pricing, food and entertainment within easy walking distance. Free Shuttle will take you to all locations within Palmetto Dunes. There is a great Kroger on the shuttle route. Marina staff is very friendly. Check your tide table. Always easier to come and go on a mid to high tide.

        I like Shelter Cove on Hilton Head. It is about a 25 minute run up Broad Creek, but worth it. 7 or 8 restaurants surrounding the harbor plus more within walking distance. A supermarket is also within walking distance. Palmetto Bay Marina is on the way to and from. Captain Woody’s restaurant there is good.

        Shelter Cove Marina is a well maintained Disney property. It sits in the middle of a large condo, townhouse and boutique complex. There are a number of restaurants there mixed in with higher end boutique stores. Food is ok, nothing special. There is one major downside to some…all businesses and restaurants are closed by 9pm, even the tiki bar. Some docks are accessed from the far side of the creek from the commercial area, which can be a very long walk for some. Depths up the creek are 10′ or greater with no less than 7′ in the marina.

        I have been at Shelter Cove Marina for the last four months. In my opinion, this is one of the finest marinas on the East Coast. I will probably there another few months and this is my second visit there. I like the friendly and helpful staff, the marina location, the quality of the facilities, the closeness of the shopping and the closeness of several nice restaurants right there at the marina. I highly recommend Scott’s Restaurant for seafood, the happy hour at Kingfisher with $2.50 wine, $1.50 beer and shrimp and oyster specials. There is live music during dinner during most of the week at Kingfisher. Parrot Cove Cafe for sandwiches, and there are several other good restaurants. Giuseppe’s Pizza has two locations, one only a short distance away and the food there is very good. I understand it was “voted Hilton head’s best pizza 7 straight years”. Lots of activities at the marina on Tuesday nights including fireworks after dark. There is free “Dune Buggy” transportation to take you to the Palmetto Dunes Plantation resort which is on the ocean front. Main disadvantage to the marina is that if you end up on the side of the Disney Vacation Club, you can have a much further walk to the restaurants, shopping and the marina store. If you have a car, parking on the Disney side is limited to 20 minutes to load and unload. Call ahead for reservations as marina slips are often full and in tight supply. Fuel is reasonable and a pump-out is available. I have not had any problem with depth in Broad Creek. Just stay in the channel and don’t take short cuts without local knowledge.

        We’ve made this trip several times, and in fact Shelter Cove is one of our favorite marinas, period. It’s a long, slow no-wake cruise up Broad Creek to get there (figure on 45 minutes to an hour from Calibogue Sound), but it’s worth the trip. The marina is indeed well sheltered by condos and shops on all sides, and there are a wide variety of shops and restaurants to choose from. The marina offers fuel, pump-out, a Ship’s Store, cable TV, wi-fi, and helpful and friendly dockhands. The entrance channel to the marina can be a bit scary, as it’s pretty narrow and there are shoals on
        both sides. However, as long as you stay to the center of the channel, between the private markers, you should find anywhere from 5 to 7 feet of water at low tide (on our last visit there a couple of months ago, we had to get an early start back to Beaufort to meet other commitments, and left Shelter Cove at low tide in pitch darkness about 5 a.m. — but still made it through the channel with no problems other than white knuckles!
        Hope this will be helpful! Happy cruising!
        Best regards, Bob and Janet Schwerzel

        Shelter Cove was our home marina. It is by far one of best kept, prettiest marinas in all our cruising. The biggest disadvantage is if you are put over on the Disney side. It is a long walk to bathrooms and showers from Docks I, J, K and L. Docks A through H are close to all the facilities. But the other ammenities are great. Lots of good restaurants on the marina or a short bike ride. Several restaurants will have entertainment and there are fireworks every Tues. night at 9 PM from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Fresh Market grocery store, West Marina 1 mile south. Mall, banks and Piggly Wiggly within a mile north. And the bike paths make riding or walking easy.

        Harbour Town is a great stop lots to do, easy access to all needs, Only problem is at low tide there are some real depth problem.

        Last visited in April. Great dockmaster thoughtfully gave us a slip that would protect us from forecast high winds during the night. Easy in and out. Great shopping and food. Great people watching in beautiful surroundings.
        Favorite stop.

        Harbourtown Yacht Basin – Hilton Head, SC, ICW mm 565. This is one of the finest marinas on the East Coast. We love this stop because it is a beautiful marina with excellent personnel, services, restaurants, shopping, golf, etc.. It is very convenient to the Atlantic Ocean and is directly on the ICW. It is our favorite launching point for going outside to Fernandina Beach, Florida. Or, if necessary, staying on the ICW is also a very workable option from this location.

        Subject: More on Harbour Town Yacht Basin
        Cruising News: We spent a very pleasant night at Harbour Town Yacht basin this past weekend, and we can enthusiastically second all the positive comments that have been posted here before — beautiful place, friendly and professional staff, great service. And that complementary bottle of Chardonnay was a welcome and unexpected treat! Cruisers should be aware, though, that the water in the entrance channel is a bit skinny, and becomes even more so just inside the marina basin. We arrived about 45 minutes or so before dead low tide and, with our draft of 4 feet, found about 3 feet of water under our keel in the entrance channel. This dropped to less than 2 feet of water clearance just inside the marina, roughly alongside the marina office, and then improved again to over four feet throughout the rest of the marina. Cruisers whose boats draw more than 5 feet or so may want to time their passages in and out of the marina for mid-to high tide.

        Stay here often. Great resturants, great bars, great shopping, great service and fairly pricey. This marina is at the top of my list. They just do it right!

        This marina is a fun place to stay. During warm wether there is music outside with different guys placing. Makes it nice to sit on the boat deck to listen. There are lots of boats >100′ that stop there, so great to watch. With the restuarants, shops, nice shower area, and helpful marina staff it is a great place to stop. My inexperienced boating companions sure needed the help docking and the gift bottle of wine helped them relax after their 1st boating trip.

        As far as entrance to Harbor Town – never had problem – was still low tide. Harbor Town is a favorite stop for us.
        Would love some local knowledge on exiting Harbor Town via eastbound Calibogue sound to Tybee to ocean. Have done it once.
        Appreciate your website and info.
        Best,
