Great location and easy in and out access from the river. Plenty of depth for our 5.5 draft. Jay, the dockmaster, is readily available and helpful with any questions you may have. I highly recommend Heritage Plantation Marina for either short or longer stays.

Heritage Plantation Marina is an excellent choice. I have my 46 foot sailboat docked here for several months. The dockmaster, Jay, is quick to respond to any inquiries and is readily available during business hours. He knows a lot about the local area and contractors. Heritage Plantation is a beautiful location with shopping, restaurants and beaches within nearby driving distance. I would highly recommend this marina.

This is an outstanding marina along the ICW. Even though it is not a destination marina (has restaurant, shops, close to things to do), it is well run, reasonable and not that far (about 2 miles) from good places if you have a car, uber or a bike. This is a great place to be if you have a dog (pet). the walking is great and safe being that it is a private subdivision. The monitor traffic going by better then any marina I'm aware of. With their docking special pricing, you can't beat it. Include the great rest rooms and free laundry (stacked washer/dryer) it is our new stop transiting north or south.

Having kept my 53’ boat at this marina for a year now I feel qualified to give it an excellent rating. The dock master is very responsive to any requests and can be counted on to do whatever he tells you he will do. The setting is beautiful, security is good, and the attenuating dock works well! I highly recommend this facility.

This marina is great. Conveniently located just north of the cool on-water villa of Georgetown it offers deep water docks, a nice indoor captains lounge (with coffee and a Keurig), clean baths and showers and a nice outdoor deck. Dockmaster Jay will quickly earn your trust and appreciation for being courteous and very helpful.

We came to this marina in need of medical help last month. We were on our way to Florida when my husband began experiencing severe pain. We called the dock master on our way in and by the time we arrived, Jay (the dockmaster) had called an ambulance and it was on its way. He could not have been more kind and helpful. While we were at the emergency room, Jay looked into several possible accommodations for our little dog, Lolita, in case we could not get back to the boat that night. He called a couple of vets and also called his girlfriend to see if he could bring her home with him. She agreed immediately not even needing to hear the circumstances. We were there for three days (by the way after staying for two days, the third day is free), and he checked in with us regularly and offered any help we might need. I had rented a car which I thought needed to be returned to the rental office. I didn't know how I would return to the marina. When I mentioned this to Jay he told me he would arrange to have it picked up at the marina. This is a beautiful marina with an exceptional dock master - we look forward to our next visit and recommend all boaters spend a couple of days there! Deb, Bruce and "Lolita" Weaver

We have been by here many times, but this was the first time we stopped. What a gem. Unless there is some compelling reason to go to Georgetown, this is a much better overnight stop. Right on the ICW and easy in and out. Deep water. Nice floating docks and excellent wifi. The down side is that there are only houses and a golf course within walking distance, and only a few power pedestals have 50A.

Marina Response:
Thanks for the great review! Glad you finally decided to try us out. We added a couple of extra 50amps last Spring and are looking to do more and more each season. Thanks again. Hope to see you on the turn around! -Jay

Jay, the dock master was extremely helpful. We made a last minute reservation on line and he responded very quickly via dockwa plus called to make sure we were all set. He helped us tie up and then gave us a tour of the marina and showed us where everything was. Clean facilities, tv to see the weather channel and even free laundry. We will definitely stop again when we are passing through.

Marina Response:
Thanks for the great review! Enjoyed having you. Hope to see you on the turn around! -Jay

This review is not for staying at Heritage, because in the end we did not, but with how wonderful Heritage was with the handling of our reservation. Heritage Plantation had some damage due to the storms this fall and only had 30amp available when we accepted our Dockwa request. Thinking we had 30 amp connector on board (normally we use 50) we confirmed the reservation. We searched our boat to only find we did not so we looked at our charts and decided we could make it to Georgetown. Being a Sunday late afternoon And knowing no one would be at Heritage to dock us we contacted the marina through Dockwa to let them know we wouldn’t be stopping. Much to our surprise we received a credit for our reservation and really appreciated that gesture. Thank you Heritage. We hope to try you at a later time.

We can’t say enough about how wonderful this marina is and especially their dockmaster, Jay! He takes special care of each boat here and treats everyone like family. He is very dedicated and did an amazing job dealing with the difficulties and hazards posed by Hurricane Florence and the resulting flooding. Thank you Jay!

Heritage Plantation Marina is a great stop. Not much available for shopping. A quiet, comfortable stop. Great for pets. Facilities are excellent. Friendly community. Even though we would not arrive until late, Jay, the dock master had everything laid out for us and would meet us in the morning. Thank you. We will mark this for our return trip.

Returning northward on the ICW some four years after first seeing this Marina, which was not in our Marina book, we had a breakdown. Anchored in the river, we called the dock master, Jay, who immediately came out in a small boat and expertly maneuvered us to the dock where he helped us tie up, noting the currents which can be problematic. What a delightful place and such a friendly and helpful dockmaster! Everything is clean and tidy. The boaters lounge and the deck and crows nest are available for use by transients, but what makes it special is the fact that residents also come down to the Marina and like to get to know the transients - very welcoming. Lovely bathrooms, good showers, laundry facility. Jay is a really helpful fellow, answering any questions and anxious to please. What started out for us as an unfortunate setback has turned into a memorable interlude in a lovely spot.

I have been an active/casual observer of Heritage Marina for the past nearly 20 years and have seen it progress from its early basic origins to the excellent 1st class status it enjoys today. The marina has always been maintained in good condition but in the past two years especially, I have seen it improve significantly with completely new decking throughout, fresh painting of office area, lounge, bathrooms, showers, with other enhancements planned or in progress. The marina currently continues to be clean, well maintained and managed, with a competent and very commendable Dock Master on site. D.West – Heritage Plantation resident.

Jay met us at the dock and helped us tie up. He then assisted us in pumping out our holding tank which was quite full. He was professional and compitent, explaining the features of the marina and helping us get guest passes for our friends to pick us up for Thanksgiving. Everyone we met was friendly. Security was pleasant, they just needed to see our pass. Easy peasy. Bathroom facilities were clean and more than adequate. Free laundry was a plus. You must be prepared for wave slaps on the hull, and some boats do not allow up paying the docks so you will get rocked from time to time. This is the case at other marinas as well and Jay alerted is to this. Nothing horrible, just an annoyance.

Wonderful marina with a very competent and helpful Dockmaster, Jay Sheely. The marina provided a complimentary coffee service in a cozy lounge for transients and slip holders. A large deck with complimentary gas grill overlooked the Waccamaw River and there were an abundance of places to catch a beautiful sunset.

We booked a few nights stay here and are so happy we did! We came from Pennsylvania to see the total eclipse and neglected to mention we were towing the boat rather than coming up the ICW. Dockmaster Jay was so nice and helpful. He found us dry storage for our trailer and was very accommodating and informative. It was our first time in South Carolina - it's so beautiful! There are nearby beaches, a lighthouse, swamps, and a wildlife refuge right down the river. We enjoyed the wonderful sunsets and local restaurants. Everything you could want is within a few minute drive up the waterway. The dock itself looks new and has very clean facilities. We would love to return again for the "Southern Charm" and activities on Pawleys Island.

A very nice marina. Jay the Dockmaster is very friendly & helpful. Clean restroom, laundry, lounge, and patio area. The current is fairly strong (3-6Knts) so bet is to dock facing bow southward. You're on the ICW, with floating docks. My son & I came in with engine trouble in a 36ft Carver. Jay met us at the dock and helped pull us in on one engine. Then he helped to make sure we were squared away before going back to working on he marina. My only peeves are: 1. Other boaters on the ICW don't seem to remember about marinas and No Wake Zones. 2. The free WiFi is fast, but not a great signal out on the transient dock. However, a short walk (200ft) gets you into an air conditioned boaters lounge. I'll be putting this on the places to revisit on the Great Loop route.

We docked here after deciding the weather would not be fun at a near by anchorage. The current in the Waccamaw was moving pretty quick. Jay the dockmaster was very helpful in getting us docked on an inside facedock. Later he helped us turn the boat downstream to make our departure easier the next day. The floating docks are very nice and deep water. There is not fuel or a restaurant on-site.

Dockmaster Jay was very helpful and congenial. View was fantastic. Docking easy. Glad to know they welcome transients. Also, with help of Uber, this location means easy access to the many fine restaurants, beaches, golf and shopping which is available in this upscale area of the Grand Stand.

My husband and I saw this beautiful Marina headed North. I called in to see if they had room. The Dock Master J. answered right away! What a Nice guy. Very much a people person. He assisted in tying us to the dock. When asked about the area he had all the answers. If you need a UBER he has one on stand by. Everything about this Marina was peaceful, from the view to the home owners. Free laundry WIFI. The current was a little strong due to weather but J. made sure our lines were just right. If you want nice spot to dock I would recommend calling in. I couldn't believe the prices. VERY reasonable.

No fuel or ship store but everything else is above and beyond. Short or long term, this is a beautiful marina with a southern quality like no other.
