Dockhand helping us tie up with a stern in slip was fantastic. Beautiful docks all gated. The restaurant, Skull Creek Boathouse, has a great bar and food was excellent. However, it was a 20-25 minute walk to get there, we took an Uber back. We had a great one night stay.

We had a great stay at Skull Creek. We stayed 4 nights. Got fuel and a pump out. Marina staff were very helpful. Only thing I would recommend is getting women’s bathroom door fixed so that it auto closes when people exit. The bathroom/showers are not within the gated marina. The bathroom door does have a keypad to enter but door needs to be pulled shut when someone exits. It is never pulled shut by the previous person. It is a little creepy going in at night when the door is left ajar. You feel like you need to check the stall and behind the shower curtain to ensure no one is lurking in there.

Marina Response:
Thanks for coming back Ken! The women’s door is something on our radar and will hopefully be fixed for your next visit. There’s no need to worry about it being gated because the whole marina is in a gated community so only a select group of people has access. Also, security makes rounds around the community during the day and night. We look forward to your next stay!

One of Safe Harbor's best marinas. We have stayed here multiple times and we always look forward to returning. James and Amanda are very helpful and kind. Amanda helped us tie up, fuel up and get settled in for our stay. Current can be strong but runs parallel to the face docks.

We loved staying at the Safe Harbor Skull Creek on our way north this spring. Amanda did a great job communicating with us via email, phone and VHF as we planned our trip and as we arrived at the marina. She was very professional in helping us tie up too. We hope to be back again soon!

We had a rest filled stay at Skull Creek Marina. A quiet place, perhaps because of time of yr? Being tied up to a floating dock was comfortable as we experienced big tides there. Hot showers are always a wonderful welcome and this proved true here also. As was a clean laundry room to get a load of wash done. Dock hands were helpful and accommodating when we arrived and fueled up as well as being able to accommodate us when we requested an addition 2 nights due to incoming weather. The people we met there were friendly, including meeting a Marine Service engineer by the name of Mad Max. He is a wealth of information that comes from a lifetime of experience. With no restaurant on site, we were able to get a ride to an Irish Pub a bit of a drive from the Marina called “Kelly’s Tavern”. Food was delicious and was a comfortable place to sit and gab for however long you wanted. Would definitely return to this Marina in the future. Thank you all :)

It was a very nice marina. Although there was no restaurants near by without an expensive Uber ride. It is located in a gated community and we were hassled everytime we came back through to get to the marina. Even though we were registered as guest. The wakes from the local boaters were bad. It is a no wake zone, no one cared. The marina staff was excellent.

Marina Response:
Sorry for those inconveniences John. We are currently working on getting bikes for our transients to use to avoid having to pay for ubers and deal with the security gate. Unfortunately, we cannot do anything about the wake. We have asked to have "no wake" buoys out in the channel but to no avail. Although I am glad the staff was able to make up for the inconvenience. Safe travels!

Recently bought a 47 Atlantic in Charleston SC and drive it down the ICW to Fort Myers Fla . Stopped at many Marinas along the way .

Positives : The Dockhand met us at the T dock to help us tie up and was very informative. The facility is in good clean condition with clean rest rooms.The transient dock is a T-dock which is easy in and out. Over all a nice marina. The negatives: T dock is in an area that is exposed to wakes. It is not in a No Wake posted area. We arrived on a Sunday and there was a lot of boating activity. We rocked and rolled at arrival late afternoon and into the night. Even late evening as a few sport fish passed leaving large wakes. The marina is in a gated community. Very nice but not close to anything. No transportation or bikes provided by the marina. If you want to go anywhere it requires Uber. We could have used the dingy to go to a restaurant on the water about two miles away. We planned a two day stay at Skull Creek to spend time on Hilton Head. After a night of rocking and rolling in a marina we decided to leave early and anchor instead. I spoke with the Harbor master about our experience. He offered to give us an inside slip where it would be calmer or refund us for the day we did not use. He was understanding to our experience. We chose to leave. If you have scheduled transportation and don't mind a little rocking and rolling while tied in a Marina this is a 5 star marina. We don't mind rocking and rolling from weather at a marina but wakes we do. We anchor for free and except wakes!

Everything about the facility was great, however there needs to be a no wake zone for the marina as we have encountered everywhere else on the ICW. Lots of bouncing about from the wakes of passing boats. Can’t imagine what it would be like in the busy season. A very easy fix to get 5 stars from me.

Delivering yachts south and north along the East Coast, it is always comforting to know where to find consistently great service, fuel, dockage, and friendly faces. The staff is always great in welcoming us in, providing convenient transient dockage, setting us up with fuel, water, and electric, and providing information for my clients. Ben Austin and his crew have always provided the highest level of service to me and my clients, all of whom have always commented positively of the visit to Skull Creek and Hilton Head Island. Most recently (Jan 2023) my clients were very pleased with the hot showers and clean rest rooms after a very cold delivery south from Beaufort NC! Very welcome! Skull Creek standardly provides the highest level of service, one that you can count on when your travels bring you to Hilton Head.

I highly recommend Safe Harbor Skull Creek. We have had a slip there since 2020 and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff was very helpful in providing information and answering questions before we committed to getting a slip there and the friendly, high level of service has been continuously provided through the years. Whether it is just answering a question or getting fuel, the team has been a pleasure to deal with. The property, including the restrooms has always been clean and well maintained. A big thanks to Ben who we have dealt with the most!

After telling James we would there after closing, he emailed all the essential info a transient needs (gate codes,etc). Slip was next to dock house/bathrooms/showers. And showers were among the nicest we’ve used. Slip has very large cleats and wide dock surfaces. \nOnly small issue was the restaurant at the Marina was closed for a private party. \nOtherwise, I highly recommend staying here when on the ICW.

The staff were really great. Tyler and Ben specifically were just absolutely wonderful. Ben, the dock master didn't hesitate to let us arrive a little early to come during slack tide and Tyler is a great dock hand with a great attitude. The rest of the stay was a bit disappointing and not on par with their rates. There is an extensive amount of construction going on, docks falling apart, no water at the slip, power outage, wifi out/extremely slow during the week we were there. Cell service is spotty up there so we had spells without wifi where we couldn't communicate with our family who were staying on the beach side of town. A large portion of the boats docked here look as if they have been there a while and are at the end of their lives. The location is beautiful but pretty far from most places if you don't have a car. This was the only marina on the island that had a slip available but it was apparent why they had the open slips. In the future, this could be a great place to stay but it just isn't there yet. The restaurant on site is nice and has a great coffee bar and "convenient store." There is also a pool that is a mile away, open to marina guests after getting a day pass. Facilities are minimal and ok. No captains lounge. Fuel dock is in a great spot for easy access but we didn't need any. I wouldn't stay here again and couldn't really recommend this place in it's current state and cost but they are definitely working hard to improve the place.

Marina Response:
Hey Felicia, thank you for staying with us and we apologize for the inconveniences. As you know, we are currently undergoing dock repairs to enhance customer experience and safety. Unfortunately, the electric outage was an unplanned emergency which directly affected the Wi-Fi and water connections are available to share if yours was plugged for construction. We are working towards expanding the marina in the near future to include larger facilities for marina guests. I hope you know we are constantly working to accommodate and improve conditions whilst under construction. Please consider staying with us in the future! Safe travels! Thanks - Ben

While transiting Hilton Head on our way to Savannah from Charleston, we requested assistance with temporary dockage to wait out storms that were passing through the area.

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.

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.
