About


Palmetto Bay is a special place; a destination tucked away with many stories to tell. Here, visitors and locals are greeted with an exceptional lineup of popular watersports, shopping, and waterside dining. Not to mention, one of Hilton Head's oldest working marinas; still in operation today.

We are proud to announce that we are under new ownership and management. This brings new excitement and immediate changes to our Hilton Head marina. Along with updating the current facilities, we’re undergoing a massive dock expansion! We have the newest marine fueling system on the island and enough slips for 144 boats. Don’t miss out - Add yourself to our dock waiting list and be the first to know!

The marina was very clean and the staff were helpful. The food at the blue marlin was great and the bartender Josh was excellent! The downside is there is no shower or boater reserved restrooms. The worst part was the electrical. You cannot run two 30 amps on the same pole and the GFIs were only 30 amps and extremely sensitive. That is they continually flipped. If this were fixed I would have given it 5 stars.

Marina Response:
Hi Craig we’re sorry you felt that way. On the bright side we have a beautiful new barge coming with brand new showers, restrooms and laundry facilities! It’s enroute so should be here any time now. As far as the electric is concerned there’s no problem at the pole running two 30amp outlets, all of our pedestals are brand new and have the proper ground fault protection. We typically have an electrician available to track down any issue you might be having so you can have the problem rectified for all the newer / updated marinas you choose to stay at. Let us know next time you’re in town and we’ll help you get it fixed.

Docks looked brand new and the staff was great. It’s a bit of a trek to groceries or laundry since Uber/Lyft and taxis are in short supply right now. The current can get pretty strong so take that into account when you’re approaching the dock.

The management and staff are very helpful here. I brought our boat in for a week and needed to extend my stay and they accommodated me with not issues. Docks and services are new, due to rebuilding from a hurricane a few years ago. Additional docks to be built later 2021 with new amenities .

Patrick and his team are absolutely wonderful. We had a mechanical issue during our stay and Patrick personally did everything possible to help us get it addressed in a timely manner. He always took a personal interest in anything that would help our visit be more pleasant.

They are still rebuilding after being wiped out by Hurricane Matthew in 2018. No showers until 2021. Otherwise, 5 stars. Dockhands did an excellent job helping me tie up and took care of all my needs (diesel and a pump out). Multiple restaurants on the property. Publix supermarket is a little over a mile away, but not too far to walk. Looking forward to when they're back to fully operational status. Would definitely stay here again.

We have been EXTREMELY happy with our stays at this marina! We have had a need to be very sporadic with our stays throughout the month and the staff has been more than accomodating especially as they are very busy. They have always made room for us and have been exceptionally friendly and helpful. The marina itself is very very nice. We LOVE this marina and will continue to stay here in the future as we are in Hilton Head all the time.

Great place and friendly people. Clean, well equipped location Launching ramp is right next door Making it super easy and fast to launch a boat and bring it to the marina. Great restaurants are located there as well. I would highly recommend this location. Deep water access as well.
