Whether you are cruising into the harbor after a day at sea or just watching the birds flying and dolphins frolicking from the docks, there is beauty in every moment at the Charleston Harbor Marina. Our tenant amenities package provides pool access, free trolley transportation downtown, high-speed fuel, 24-hour security, on-site shower and laundry facilities, and ample dining options around the resort. With 17,000 linear feet of floating dock space, more than 450 boats of up to 200 feet can be accommodated here at our certified clean marina.

Berth Capacity

Linear Docks:12000 Feet


Approach via Charleston Harbor, turning into marina about midway between R34 and R36. The current can be strong through the marina so it's recommended to enter the marina during slack tide, 30 minutes before and after the high or low tide.

Great Location! Professional, friendly and very helpful dock staff. Admire & appreciate COVID Precautions staff are using for fuel dock and marina facilities. Once again, I look forward to returning when we can enjoy some leisure time at pool and get to explore Charleston!

Great marina and resort! Everything is clean, updated and the resort has beautiful pools and services. I love the view from marina too. Lots of commercial action in harbor. Very exciting area if you like to watch big and small ships! People are helpful at docks when coming in late at night. Highly recommend this marina. Close to downtown too!

Charged me FULL PRICE but no showers and no shuttle and gas at $3.50/gallon. When I brought this to their attention they said 'Have a nice day'.

Marina Response:
We are planning on opening the bathrooms today, we had to make sure we had the proper equipment and staff training for COVID. I apologize for the inconvenience but please know that we are simply trying to provide a safe environment for our guests and associates. The water taxi is available to shuttle folks downtown till it is safe to operate the shuttle van. Travel Safe!

Dockmaster declared no electricity available however marina charged for electricity. No help was provided to secure boat to dock and no protective gear on marina dockside which caused unnecessary damage to boat. Shower facilities were greatest advertising appeal however marina informed no showers available after requiring registration with Dockwa. Overall an unpleasant experience. Bill will be disputed in entirety if Manager Rand Pratt does not reimburse electricity charge.

Disappointing to say the least. Being on the face dock made the walk to land very dog ‘unfriendly’.But that was a minor issue. I have followed closely Covid-19 updates via the Waterway Guide & other sources. There was no indication that ALL facilities other than take out/outside dining were unavailable. When I made our reservations on Sunday I was NOT informed that restrooms & showers were closed & locked. Also, the ‘resort’ fee was unconscionably added to the bill. We are Loopers & will be sure to post our shabby treatment on the AGLCA Forum so others will not have a similar experience.

Marina Response:
Very sorry about your unsatisfactory stay with us, however, I do have to thank you for bringing to our attention that our COVID Status should have been updated. These are strange times, and I admit we should have been more diligent in our updates. Travel Safe! Hopefully, we will all be back to business as usual in short order.

Awesome facility. Very friendly and professional staff. Only suggestion is to cover the parking protocol on the listing. One will need to have a gate card to come and go from the marina. Anxious to go back and stay at the hotel. It looks awesome.

Marina Response:
Constant improvement through customer interaction. Thank you for pointing out the Parking Protocol. It is being added to the dialog and confirmation notes! We hope to welcome you back on your way back through!

This marina is just fine!! Being on the Thead made the walks a little excessive, but, I said I would walk more this winter so that is OK. I would suggest a simpler check in rocedure so that those that do not wish to walk all the way to the office do not have to. We find Ipads with the Dockwa connection works well, and makes the customers experience a quality one. Just from observation I would enlarge fuel dock capacity. The resort pass is a little much this time of year as the TIKI bar was closed and the weather not great for swimming. Most boaters don't care about those things, and the rest of the amentities should be included for the premium price we are asked to pay. The Reel Bar is great, the patriots point museum is special and should be visited by everyone. All in all a good spot!!

Marina Response:
We really appreciate it when folks take the time to send their reviews, it helps make sure we keep improving! We are actually redoing our fuel dock into a check-in this winter and looking at some new software implementations. Thank you for pointing out the amenities, they truly make us stand out in the market. Our heated pools, hot tub, spa, 24hr. Gym, Downtown Shuttle, Children's Program, Bocce, Laundry Service, Yoga, Etc... help ensure that our guests have plenty to do!

Helpful staff, friendly boat neighbors, solid floating docks. Can get a little rocky from boat wakes.

My only complaint would be the "resort pass". We needed the pass to get out of the gated parking lot, but it would not work. We even had them reset the pass and it still didn't work. It was on our last day when we were informed the pass only works on the marina gate not the main gate we were trying to use.

Marina Response:
Greetings Capt! Our new parking system has not been without its challenges for that I do apologize, we solved that opportunity this morning :). We are very appreciative of the 5 Star review and I will be sure to pass it on to our crew. Hope to see you on the way back through. Safe Travels!

A good marina if you cannot get in over on the Ashley. The only thing that makes the Ashley location better is location; it offers much more 'off boat' entertainment and in easy walking distance, as it is located downtown. Other than that, the view here is actually better, the facilities are nice, staff was competent and friendly, there is a resort on site with dining etc... Not much more that you could ask for, really. Be sure to check the current when entering or leaving as there is a bit of a dogleg into/out of the marina.

We upgraded to include the resort amenities and were able to enjoy the beautiful pools with poolside lunch service and yummy beverages. Next time I will bring my workout gear so I can use the gym and enjoy the beach yoga!
