For more than 40 years, the red and white striped Harbour Town Lighthouse has welcomed visitors to one of the most unique and beautiful places on earth. Located in the heart of The Sea Pines Resort, and ideally situated on Hilton Head Island's captivating Calibogue Sound, the Harbour Town Yacht Basin is recognized as a premier yachting destination on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. The full-service marina welcomes boaters year-round and offers slip rentals and sales, fuel, marine supplies and apparel, professional yacht sales and brokerage dealer, as well as a friendly, experienced staff.

Developer Charles Fraser, considered the pioneer of Hilton Head Island, led the team that constructed the Harbour Town Yacht Basin in 1969. Inspired by a harbour in Portofino, Italy, Fraser's vision for the basin was to attract mariners to Hilton Head Island, while preserving the island's natural landscape. His unique vision resulted in a design that preserved centuries-old hardwoods, in lieu of additional slips, and included the construction of the island's iconic Harbour Town Lighthouse.

Today, the Harbour Town Yacht Basin offers 100 slips in a world-class resort setting. Visitors have the option to dock for a day, a week, a month, or even a lifetime, and enjoy the marina's facilities and services, as well as convenient access to The Sea Pines Resort's amenities and accommodations.

This is a fantastic marina because of the people helping there. We always received by the dockmaster or any other assistants the best service. We have been staying there for several months. We enjoyed the music bands for the Holidays celebrations. I didn't give a 5* because the Seapines management, not the marina, charges $10 some delivery drivers like Publix to go through security or when we took Lyft (even we had a pass with us in the car). Uber can pass without to pay! Some marinas offer free shuttle. I believe that Seapine management should reconsider their policy.

Beautiful marina surrounded by quaint shops and several excellent restaurants. The area around is a wooded neighbor for great walks and bike rides. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

We found paradise in South Carolina when we pulled into the Harbour Town Yacht Basin. Dock hand Maximilian greeted us at the fuel dock with a bottle of wine in hand. I am uncertain what the promotion was but we plan to return! Good job to the HTYB marketing team. Nancy and Jeff (inside the dock master office) were excellent and facilitated in helping us secure dinner reservations at an oceanside restaurant which was also excellent. Kudos to all at the Yacht basin!

Great staff. Well maintained floating dock. Gave us a bottle of wine and introductory package. Lots of shopping and restaurants on site. Lots of golf nearby.
