Cooper River is an excellent marina with staff that care about the marina and its guests. The location can seem a bit remote, but its also one of the few places one can watch the activities of a busy port. The floating docks are excellent, and while the outside of the transient dock can be a bit rolly from boat and ship traffic, it is a good and economical place for cruisers to stop on their way north or south with the season.
Cooper River Marina was great. The staff is friendly and atmosphere is relaxing, We will definitely be back in the fall. They even offer marina carts for free and the store has a good selection of craft beers.
Great personnel and the price is right.
A very clean and well run Marina, with friendly, knowledgeable and courteous staff. What is more, James went above and beyond to secure us a slip, even though the Marina was full. We don't know Charleston, so would not have known where to go, as there was no room at any other Marinas. Thank you James and Staff! We truly appreciate it.
Great guys there. Bill in maintenance was extremely helpful
Nice people and facilities are in good shape. Nothing else is nearby, so you’ll need transportation if you are a transient. We were able to leave the boat unattended for and extended period with comfort and the office recommended a dinner for some work who did a great job.
Marina staff is always friendly and helpful. The location isn't great if you don't have transportation, but was safe and secure and the price is right. Can get some wake from passing boats and ships and some ambient noise from the port next door, but we like watching all of the maritime activity. It's pretty cool. We have stayed before and will again on our passage through Charleston.
Friendly staff help us dock and have us helpful tips for visiting Charleston
Staff was very friendly and helpful checking in and informing of how things worked. Environment was clean, quiet, and easy access for uber to get into town.
Another great stay at Cooper River Marina. With the use of Dockwa, I was able to stay at the marina completely contactless. The marina contacted me via email to let me know they were able to put me in the slip that worked perfectly last time. Great place to put your boat!
New manager started a couple years ago knows little about boats or running a marina obviously since it is very run down with broken docks, lounge and baths rarely cleaned, and grumpy workers. He bullies visitors and lies about availability to keep boats out so they don't have to work (it's a county parks dept. marina, not privately owned.) Marina is located in the middle of a dirty industrial area with no provisioning or restaurants close by. No fuel here either. Avoid like the plague.
