We were late to reserve so we got the spot almost under the bridge. The staff is great, but the boat got dirt from the bridge so I do not think it is right to give a higher rating this time. Hope that is fair to all.

This is our second year of comimg to this marina which is clean and beautiful however this year the staff was not very friendly and did not make you feel very welcomed but that comes with any job and will not prevent us from comimg back next year.

We told the Dockmaster we. We're inexperienced with currents when he gave us instructions for coming into the Marina and had advised there were strong currents. He proceeded to direct us to a slip and sent a young man to the dock to meet us. The current grabbed us and pushed us into two other boats causing damage to our boat. I begged the dockhand to help us or to find someone who could and he responded there wasn't anyone who could help. Apparently, he was only there, waiting to catch a line. Two. Others came over and advised us to stop and wait for slack tide and then move the boat. We hired a resident boater to move our boat to a face dock. Hmm. If a face dock had been offered in the beginning this whole thing would have been avoided! Later heard this Marina has a reputation of being called "Crash"! The resident boater said he helps others 2-3 times a week who have the same experience. Good to know--too late!

Marina Response:
We’re sorry the marina did not meet your expectations. As you explained, we try to advise all arriving vessels of the present conditions of the river. It is no secret that the Ashley River and Charleston Harbor are capable of having strong currents, and it sounds as if the marina did its job in advising appropriately. We try our best to assign slips based on the conditions to make it as easy as possible for vessels, but sometimes space is limited. We rely on the vessel’s captain to communicate any hesitations when giving slip locations. We utilize our facedock for larger vessels that cannot fit into slips. Depending on the vessel size and duration of their stay, a facedock assignment is rarely offered.
