About


For more than 50 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, 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.

Southern Charmed! Very knowledgeable and friendly marina staff that provided great navigation info on the southern approach from Bloody Point Range. We had a wonderful 3 day stay at the marina. "Danny" and the rest of the staff provided fast, friendly service! Only regret is that our e-bikes were not allowed within the Sea Pines resort.

Thank you to all of the staff at Harbourtown Yacht Basin! We stayed over the busy Easter Holiday (just prior to the Heritage Golf tournament), and we couldn't have asked for better service. From the friendly dock hands to the help and recommendations of the dock master regarding wind forecast on the Port Royal Sound which ultimately extended our stay, our time on HH was wonderful! Thank you so much!

This is one of our very favorite marinas that we have visited. The location is protected and therefore easy to maneuver in. There are lots of restaurants and shops to walk to. And you feel like a rock star while there. Some people might not like tourists admiring their boat while docked but we thought that was fun, as if we drove up in a Lamborghini. They even give you a bottle of wine sourced from the Mondavi vineyards. Grey Poupon anyone?

Great stop! Little or no current within the marina. April caught our lines at the fuel dock then handed us a welcome packet and a bottle of wine. Watch sunset from the top of the lighthouse or on the grass opposite the marina entrance. There are shops and a restaurant on site. We rode our bikes to the beach. Wonderful. Showers temporarily located in the Club House are a bit of a walk but worth it. Up there in our top 5 stops on the great loop. Thank you Harbour Town Yacht Basin! Scott and Tris GREEN EYES

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.

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.

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.

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.
