Heads were clean and the dockmaster helped us get on and off the dock, given the strong current the help was needed.

Dock staff was great. Washrooms were out of order. Breaker in dock pedestal was a little worn. tripped once so we reset and used less power. This facility will need some maintenance to keep it worthy of its great location in a wonderful city. s

I was pleased with the stay but I do have one small issue. A friend of mine had to dock his boat in the same slip I was and I was charged $92 extra for him to dock with us. Is this a common practice to charge extra for using the same slip?

I was really impressed with the security, but disappointed in my dock slip:( The other boat in our group was fine. In the future, I know to make sure that I confirm we have an entire slip. I was not even negotiating pricing, I didn't care. I wasn't looking for a bargain, I wanted my boat taken care of. Oh, we were given a credit, a whopping $11.50 each! That isn't what we wanted or was even asking for. For convenience and safety it was awesome, but I now know what questions to be sure and ask when booking because in the beginning I was led to believe I had a slip for "each boat".

Marina Response:
Carter Family- We appreciate the kind words as safety and convenience is our number one priority. Just a reminder that marinas are able to book according to demand (busy holidays) as long as it is safe and convenient for boat transients and guests. During your next stay, please don't hesitate to utilize our seasoned dockhands to assist with getting in and out during business hours. If you are ever not sure on docking and launching within the marina, we are always glad to help. We look forward to you staying with us again soon!

I was at this marina for three nights. It needs a makeover and needs to set minimum expectations for the boats who use it. There were a lot of boats with decks covered with junk, boats that clearly are never moved from the docks and boats so dirty on the outside that the inside must be a health hazard. Every cement piling was covered with chipped and peeling paint. Slips are not clearly numbered. With numerous marinas in Charleston, I will be trying somewhere else on my next trip through.

Recommend limiting the number of ice bags a boater can get. 2 days in a row marina was out of ice as a commercial fisher bought all the bags in the cooler leaving none for anyone else docked there.

The slip was conveniently located for our purposes. The ice was a bit expensive but I guess you pay for convenience.

Location is really the primary strength of this marina. It did allow us to explore Charleston by bicycle very well, and that was what we wanted to do. There is also a new Publix (grocery) that is within pretty easy walking distance. The docks were floating, but just in OK condition. The showers were messy enough we chose not to use them and we are NOT that picky. The internet was hit or miss. We had the necessities (power, water, and a dock) in a good location for Charleston, but I would say that was about it. The dock workers were nice and considerate, which is always appreciated. The marina just needs some updating/attention. Bike racks were overloaded with old, rusty relics with flat tires. I would stay there again, but just expect the basic essentials. The location makes it worth it.

I really like this Marina. Much smaller scale than the City Marina. Dockhands are helpful. Easy pump out. I know they recently installed a new WiFi system, but it still isn’t great.

Marina Response:
Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry our wifi system did not meet your expectations. We pay to make sure it reaches every vessel. Please contact our dock office if you have any issues. 843-722-1996.

We had several 20 - 25’ boats on a one night stay. We all paid for slips however we ended up stacking 2 boats in one slip. I would have expected to have a reserved spot for each boat.

Marina Response:
We’re sorry our marina did not meet your expectations. We do offer smaller vessels to share finger slips at a discounted rate when occupancy is tight. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at 843-722-1996.

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.
