The dockhand, DANIEL, was great! Very accommodating, and very efficient. Friendly, friendly guy, and very helpful with information. Only one working at the marina and was running between Boats and Theo and the ship store to accommodate everyone. Did a great job, highly recommend the Marina. Plus, a great tiki bar on site!

Our visit from start to finish was great. Daniel and Chase were both helpful with our lines, and when our engine suddenly decided not to start when we were about to leave, Bob from the service department got us going with a new solenoid and some rewiring within three hours. Terrific service all around.

We have a fantastic multi-day stay here waiting out seas. Dockhands are very courteous and professional, great help coming in with high wind. Stay port as you pass under the bridge as shoaling is in the middle between the two marinas. They let us use a curtesy car at no charge and we were able to get provisions a few miles away. Restaurant and bar on site was wonderful, closed on Sunday/Monday. We will be back for sure!

We were transients with electronics and diesel heater problems. Service manager Steve immediately helped us with both in house expertise Allen and Gordon, and connecting us to an outside electronics expert. Extremely responsive and thoroughly nice people. Got us on our way with only one day stay. Chase on the dock and the rest of crew made this extremely well kept marina one of the best stops we had all the way from Maine. Thank you all.

Beautiful Marina, super friendly and accommodating staff. I real pleasure. The only negative is the approach is shallow and confusing. It appears that the channel markets flipped to ICW and there is a new preferred channel marker that adds to the confusion. Call and get instructions if you are in doubt, once you figure out what’s going on you are good. Also the overhead power line is 85 feet so large masts are ok despite the listed limitations of 65 feet

Marina Response:
Thanks for the informative review! The approach to the marina can be a little confusing as the red can be hard to see on the bottom of the G/R "TC" (which marks the junction between Gallants Channel and Town Creek Channel). The Coast Guard just repainted it but it doesn't seem to have improved the visibility too much. On approach to the marina, boaters should keep ALL markers to starboard (the "TC" and R2, and all the smaller markers on approach from the south). We suggest boaters call us on VHF 16 or 08 on approach so we can provide guidance, or go to our website for detailed instructions and a helpful map -- towncreekmarina.com. And yes, the overhead power lines on approach from the south have 85' clearance. The Gallants Channel fixed bridge on approach from the north has 65' clearance. Safe travels and we hope to see you again soon!

A nice marina. We've stayed here before. A pretty easy entrance. Can be a bit slappy and hard to get on the outer face docks on days with North winds, but the excellent Marina staff will assist you onto the dock. A bit far from town if you don't get the courtesy car or have bikes (a little over a mile) but other than that a great marina and good value.

This is a great marina in all respects, and we plan to stop here again. The docks are in great condition and the staff are very helpful. The laundry and bathrooms are clean, as is the laundry. There’s a well-stocked ships store and an excellent full-service repair facility on site with certified and competent mechanics. We’ve stayed at all of the local marinas in Beaufort and Town Creek is head and shoulders above the others.

Awesome marina with amazing customer service. They attended to all our needs, especially given that the first mate has a foot injury (they brought us steps to get off the boat instead of our ladder). They have a courtesy car that we used to drive around Beaufort and get groceries. There's a tiki bar and restaurant on site (closed Sunday and Mondays). The place is very well maintained. A definite 5 star! Thank you!!!

The Marina and staff are excellent! The rating would be a 5 star except for the upcharge. We made the reservation via our membership with Dockwa that has all our information. The reservation price of $179. was not the price once the reservation was accepted. There was an upcharge of $30.00 to $209. Since all our information was available including our 24‘ beam when the reservation was made we do not really understand the increase, but again, it was a wonderful place to stay with a great staff.

We arrived very late in the day but Chase stayed for over an hour to help us dock in the pouring rain. He went above and beyond and was so pleasant, even while getting drenched. I would highly recommend this marina. I would give it more stars if I could. The ipe docks were incredibly maintained and the facilities were clean and well maintained as well. The in slip fueling was a first for us and very convenient. All in all it was an incredible experience and again, I would highly recommend this marina.

Thank you for the personal service while there. We really appreciate the ride when the courtesy car was out for an extended time. We needed to do a short errand in order to be able to be leave in a timely manner the next morning, so a very kind woman in in the marina office offered to take us in her personal car. Family was accommodating, good fuel prices and fills at slip, good restaurant on site, close to town.

We stayed for one night at Town Creek Marina. Chase and the other staff are courteous, friendly and efficient. The facilities (bathroom/showers, laundry and ships store) are nice and clean. They also have fuel at the dock. Unfortunately, the on site restaurant is closed on Sundays and Mondays so we didn't have a chance to check it out. We used the courtesy car to drive to the local Food Lion and tour downtown. It's really cute. Next time we'll need to stay longer.
