About


Sitting on a quiet stretch of the Ashley River neighboring Charleston’s historic district, Safe Harbor Bristol bestows boaters with easy access to open water and the rich culture of one of the top cities in the country. Take your boat out for a day of wakeboarding, then come home to a meal in the heart of Charleston. Cap your evening with one of the regular fireworks displays at the Riverdogs baseball game.

Great location and the staff was excellent.

My wife and I were transiting the ICW coming North. We had some mechanical issues and needed to leave the boat for a week. Maritn, the manager at Bristol was extremely helpful. He helped us into our space on a busy Memorial Day weekend, got us in touch with a mechanic and made sure we had everything we needed. While Bristol's "big sister" marina was just down river, I'll stay at Bristol anytime I'm in Charleston. Thanks Martin.

Martin was wonderful in helping us reserve our transient slip. He was thoughtful, knowledgeable and efficient. The marina is well kept, clean and beautiful. This was our first trip to Bristol and I am confident that it will not be our last!! Thanks again Martin!

Martin was absolutely fabulous and helped all 3 of our boats tremendously. We invited him to eat dinner with us after his work hours and he joined us. Russell and Branwell took great care of our ice and gas needs. Great crew working for the marina. We will visit again.

We docked our boat at Brisol Marina for one night and we had no issues at all! Martin was great to work with, and he even tied our boat up for us upon arrival. We forgot to ask for the gate code to access our boat early in the morning, and he responded to our message within 10 mins. We will stay again!

Out of all of the marinas we have chosen, we will not go anywhere else now. These people clearly know how to operate an organized and secure operation. We did a one night stay and were very pleased. Thanks you all so much.
