Lowcountry charm meets convenience and southern hospitality at Safe Harbor Skull Creek. Amid the sprawling oaks and southern breezes of Hilton Head, the marina is host to a complete lineup of modern amenities, and the area’s sought-after beaches, resorts, golf courses, and shopping are within reach. With ideal access to the open ocean, the port is idyllic for sailors and anglers alike.
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.
Ben and his staff are equal to the best marina crew on the planet, consistently helpful, attending to details, making people feel comfortable about being here.
Ben (Dockmaster), Tucker, Tyler and Hunter were all professional and extremely helpful in getting us squared away with diesel and a great outside T berth
We had an awesome stay here. The staff were super helpful. Nice facilities. We especially enjoyed access to the neighborhood pool. We will be back!
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. Ben answered our radio call and allowed us to tie up and wait it out. He was very cordial and offered the use of the facilities as needed. It was comforting to my passengers and I to get on terra forms after a battle in Port Royal Sound. Thank you Ben, and kudos Safe Harbor Skull Creek!
Great staff. Helped us with all our needs.
Skull Creek was a great facility with a professional staff we had to leave the boat for a week and it was in great hands
We lost an engine 35 miles SE HHI. Once in cell phone range we contacted Safe Harbor Skull Creek for dockage letting them know ETA 5:30-6:00. Not a problem. James met us on the dock to assist with lines. We greatly appreciate the after hours courtesy extended to us. Thank you for being there for us.
Excellent management (Thank you, Ben). Good location. Service level is great. Good value
Very helpful staff. Easy overnight stay on the ICW.
This is a very nice peaceful marina albeit a bit remote from provisioning options. Great dock staff and tidy new floating docks. Restaurant on site (did not go) and very nice neighborhood for walking. Several golf courses within an easy bike ride. Have stayed here before and will again.
Awesome place with great dock staff. Very helpful. Great Restaurant onsite
We love stopping here when traveling to and from the Florida Keys. We promise ourselves in October we will stay here at least a week to explore all the sites & restaurants The staff here is incredible! Great Team! Clean facility and always a warm welcome.
Excellent service from the staff and a nice quaint marina. Fuel price was reasonable. The surrounding neighborhood was beautiful and fun to explore on our bikes. We will be back!
James and everyone else at Skull Creek Marina were great. Came through on a delivery with two vessels during the busiest time of the year, Heritage Golf Tournament and they were more than accommodating for us both. Easy in and out off the ICW and we’ll kept docks.
Very nice marina with on site restaurant. The dockmaster was very helpful and when we had to change plans due to weather, the marina was very flexible. We will definitely stay there again.
Amazing!! Had a great stay. Clean and friendly people ....
I’d live here if I could. Couldn’t be a nicer group so friendly and helpful
A really nice place. The restaurant was great and the service was terrific.
Great location and excellent staff. Dock is exposed to boat wake.
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.
Ben Austin is a great guy. Mark and David too. Can’t express In words how happy we are. Ten stars!
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.
Just Great. We love please . Looking forward to stay with them again.
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
great marina, loved our stay.
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.
Staff was amazing. Friendly and catered to our every need.
Friendly helpful dockhands, nice docks. We enjoyed our stay.
I really appreciated the friendly, professional marina staff. Very easy to work with, responsive to requests, regularly checking on conditions of docks and boats in the marina. The facilities are clean and very secure.
Great marina and staff. Great restaurants within walking distance.
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.
They do a great job at Skull Creek. Clean facility with great staff.
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.
Very nice marina. Facilities were very clean. Very friendly and helpful staff. Special thanks to Jeff.
Great staff. Extremely friendly and helpful. Clean facilities Definitely coming back
Helpful staff. Nice location to Hilton Head shopping and restaurants.
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.
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.
