Boating is one of the most popular outdoor activities to partake of on Hilton Head Island (other than leisure biking). Here’s a list of places to dock your boat while cruising around the island.
The 8 Public Marinas on Hilton Head Island
Harbour Town Yacht Basin
The Harbour Town Yacht Basin is widely recognized as a leading docking destination on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. With the Sea Pines resort, restaurants, and attractions, it’s easy to see why this is a popular location. The red and white striped lighthouse has been a distinct welcomer to boaters for over 40 years. Dock your boat for the day, week, month, year, or a lifetime. Request dockage here.
Safe Harbor Skull Creek
Skull Creek is a modern marina with easy access to gasoline, ice, and other amenities. The concrete floating docks accommodate vessels up to 200 feet in length. With 24-hour privacy and protection, your boat will be taken care of. The dock is conveniently located off the Intracoastal Waterway with deepwater access to Port Royal Sound and nearby Atlantic Ocean.
Palmetto Bay Marina
Palmetto Bay Marina is a small dock with a boat ramp into the Broad Creek Marina – Freeport Marina. There is no gate fee and ample parking for your vehicle. With three restaurants voted as “local favorites,” two bars, and a fuel fill-up station, this is your one-stop place for a fun time.
