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.
The staff was amazing! The marina surrounding shops really felt like a place to vacation. I would definitely stay again, either on the boat or land. Really enjoyable place to relax.
Super friendly team, lovely spot.
Certainly one of our favorite ports of call. And a first class Marina in all ways ... And very much looking forward to the new changes by next spring ...
The staff was amazing from the minute we arrived. They helped with the lines and power and gave us helpful info about the area and facilities. Nice wide, clean docks. A large area for dogs and lots of opportunities for walking. Dinner at CQ'S was great and I will plan to stay a little longer next time.
This is a beautiful place and we're very glad we returned. We were afraid the construction noise or dust might be an issue but it was quiet and clean the whole time. The marina is beautiful, the staff is great and the floating docks are nice, and the whole area and island is a great place to visit.
Great stop, always appreciate the fine folks at Harbour Town. Unfortunately to fuel prices are on the high side.
Very clean, great staff, great location. Great place to stay, highly recommend
Great location. Protected. Dining and shopping available
Very nice Marina to stay at. First class floating docks, helpful dockmaster and nice house & grounds. Easy entry from the ICW. Highly recommended.
Warren the Dockmaster was extremely helpful as we arrived late and he had everything setup for our arrival as well as a free bottle of wine! It’s a beautiful marina with very helpful staff. Will always stay here if we’re in the area!
Great location a lot of things to do here. Great staff!
Wonderful facilities, great staff, only downside is a slight smell of sewerage along the back bulkhead (we presume this is from stagnant waters opposite the harbor entry).
One of our favorite marinas! Staff is helpful. Facilities are great and current renovations will make us even better. We were told renovations should be completed by April 2021. Highly recommend a stop here.
Received a bottle of red wine at check in. Harbor masters were great help! 2 bits of info that could be important: 1- the marina showers are currently located in the swanky golf club just outside the marina, (but a short walk from slip 58). It felt "odd" walking past folks dressed to "club code" in my bathing suit and sweaty t-shirt while carrying a beer... 2- shore power connections are located between slips and not on the side docks. The location is designed to be shared by larger yachts docking "Stern to" the main dock walkway. Not easy to reach with a smaller boat docking bow in unless you have at least 75' of power cord.
Great staff and pristine marina. We wish we could have stayed longer.
Great marina! Stayed three nights and will definitely be back for a longer stay next time.
Outstanding facility in spite of on-going construction. And, an outstanding staff that wrote the book on "customer service"!
Wonderful marina staff and the best peel ur own shrimp at the Bar at the Pines !
Love the Marina, staff and facilities- will be even more fantastic when construction is completed.
This is one of the best places to stay on Hilton Head!
Under construction, so dockmaster office, the Quarterdeck were not open. The Staff was very attentive and helpful.
Always a special place to stay. Great staff and lots of good restaurants to enjoy!
The best Marina we have ever stayed in. Loved all of the amenities and the staff was awesome. We will definitely be back!
Totally professional, helpful and pleasant from first contact. Made our stay very fun & relaxing.
Best marina! Accommodating to all our needs! Great staff! Shopping And good restaurants. We love it here!
Dock electricity is under repair. Building housing marina office, restaurant and marina showers/restrooms going to be demolished soon. Don’t know when all will be fixed. Dockwa should make boaters aware of these current conditions.
A really nice marina stay! The basin is lovely; the marina crew very friendly and helpful; and the restaurants good! We did not use a lot of the resort's amenities as we had other plans for Hilton Head while we were there. The bike paths are absolutely lovely! My favorite part!
Great location, facility and great service!
If you want to spend time at Hilton Head, this is the place to be. Lots to do within walking distance of the marina. The marina is absolutely first rate. Slips are a little tight for a novice but the lack of appreciable current and being largely sheltered from the wind, made it a piece of cake.
Absolutely amazing. Beautiful Marina w/shops and restaurants. Go to Crazy Crab and request server Pat. Bike trails thru pine trees golf course and neighborhoods was outstanding.
Awesome people here. Very attentive and always a smiling face.
Great location and great amenities!
Harbour Town always great! People, setting can’t be beat. Also great the protected docking.
Lovely setting and facilities, very friendly and helpful customer service.
Great dock staff, clean, modern and very close to shopping. A little overpriced considering pandemic time and very limited ability to safely use the communal facilities
Top shelf facility and staff.. A real pleasure to have stayed with Harbor Town
Amazing place , even better staff
Excellent marina. The people are super nice and helpful too!! Great location and amenities!. Recommend to all.
Friendly, helpful, clean. A beautiful place!
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.
Super nice place, very welcoming, a great stop indeed!
Wonderful people and place!
Good marina, great staff, area is pretty touristy, but is a great location, park for the kids, everywhere has gluten free options for food.
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.
We were greeted and helped by Chad who was awesome and surprised us with a bottle of wine as a welcoming gift. We had a very good stay. The facilities are exceptional and everyone was very friendly and helpful.
