The staff and facilities at Skull Creek we’re excellent! Went above and beyond for our needs for the weekend. We highly recommend and definitely will be using them for future dock services.

Great stay. Trailered our 24' Chaparral from Smith Mtn Lake VA to Hilton Head for a two week stay & rented a transient slip at Skull Creek Marina. Nice folks, good rates, excellent facilities and close to where we were staying with family on the island. Only down-side is having to find a local self storage option to keep the boat trailer for a couple weeks... but that worked out. Would definitely go there again.

Very nice marina with on site restaurant. There are even bicycles that you can borrow. The dockmaster was very helpful.

The dock master, Ben, met us at the slip and was masterful at securing what was not a typical “landing” but all ended well due to Ben’s efforts. Everything was well kept and staff very polite. It was an excellent experience and will be visiting again soon. Thank you - We have visited multiple times since, including last weekend and it was a great visit ! Still highly recommend!

The marina and staff are stellar and quite friendly. A shout out to Ben, the dock master. He’s an example of what all dock-masters could be. Our only issue was the rolling we experienced while pretty far in on the face dock. I’d say it was our boat but ALL of them rocked quite a bit unless you are on the inside face dock next to land. However, this seems to be taken up with long term ? We would stay here again but the powers that be might want to look into wave attenuation, enforcement of a slow speed zone, etc. Thank you Ben! You made it worthwhile! April

Easy docking with very nice people that even helped us with pumps to blow up rafts. No shore power issues. Fuel was easy to get to. Nice restaurants close by. Close to Beaufort as well.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Safe Harbour Skull Creek Marina in Hilton Head, so much so that we planned to stay for a week and ended up staying for 5 weeks! Ben and his team made us feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. The facilities are great with a laundry on site and good WiFi. We will definitely be back and make Skull Creek a regular winter destination. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant. Dean & Alka Bromiley

Always have been more than pleased with our stops at Skull Creek over the years. Only issue this year was the lack of golf carts. In the past they had been available for boat owner use. Apparently they have been disallowed since Covid. Very long walk from parking lot up ramp to docks. However, staff exceptionally accommodating &, when called, would pick you up at bottom of ramp.

Second visit to Skull Creek and it only getting better. Dockmaster Ben and manager Mark do a great job. The current can be strong but they are there to help you get in for fuel or your berth.

Super friendly and very accommodating for a late arrival and early am departure. We rented bikes from Mike’s bikes, and they delivered to the Marina. 3 excellent restaurants a short bike ride or long walk away. We’ll be back again.

Very clean and great facilities (would be nice to have more than one washer/dryer). Staff very helpful, especially when coming in with the tricky currents and winds they were a tremendous help. Lovely area for taking the dog for a walk.

Great stop. The staff was super friendly, easy in and out, and the location is nice and quiet. It is a bit far if you’re trying to get elsewhere on the island, but worth a stop.

Great, clean marina, very convenient as it is right next to ICW. Super clean bathrooms and friendly (especially John) staff. Even marina tenants are very friendly giving you local advice, warnings, etc. You do have to watch out for strong currents and tides. Will stay there again.

Great brand new floating docks, all hardware an equipment in excellent shape. The best about this marina is the team running it. They go out of the way to make sure that the guest's needs are met. I was arriving with one engine disabled and Benjamin, the docmaster, proactively contacted me with all the tide and current info and waited at the dock to assist allowing me to dock safely with restricted manouverability. I saw him staying past the working hours to help other boaters. Not something you see often. The docks are on the river so make sure to account for currents and wind when planning your arrival. Some wake when windy so place your fenders properly. Overall, great marina.

Really nice folks at this marina. We had exceptional service. The docks look brand new. Easy UBER ride to provisions and nice neighborhood to walk the dog. We really enjoyed the stay here. Watch the current - best to come and go at a slack current.

Marina Response:
Thank you for the Excellent review. We certainly enjoyed having you stay with us and we hope that you will come back and visit us again in the near future.

This marina is one of my favorites. You feel welcome from the moment you made the reservation. Very friendly and professional dock hands and great all around service makes this marina a top one on my list. And if that is not enough is on a beautiful location, you have to stay a couple of days and leave the marina. Shops, restaurants are all close by. For those with bikes is a very well marked bike trail that takes you from the plantation to around the town on this beautiful route.
