You will not find friendlier or more accommodating folks anywhere on the ICW than Darien. For clarification there are two independently operated sets of docks in Darien. Below or east of the bridge the docks are operated by the McIntosh County Industrial Development Authority. Above or west of the bridge the dock is owned by the City of Darien.
The first docks approached as arriving in Darien will be the McInstosh County Industrial Development Authority Docks. Although these docks were free with complementary water and electricity for a number of years, they now cost $1.00 per foot per night and that includes water and electricity. There is now a dockmaster available for most times of the day. Just contact Teresa at the Authority office M-F at 912-437-6659 or Capt Wynn Gale at 912-223-6821 after hours or weekends. Capt Gale is a local shrimper and can answer any question about local services as well as navigational advice.
The Highway 17 fixed bridge (31' vertical clearance) adjacent to and west of the McIntosh County Industrial Authority Docks. On the other side of the bridge is the City of Darien Dock that is still a free dock with a 6 hour limit of use. This dock is unattended and does not offer water or electricity. Contact The City of Darien at (912) 437-6686 for additional information.
A park, restaurants, marine hardware store, bank, post office, fuel and convenience store are located within an easy walk of both docks. A grocery store is located 1.26 miles from the docks. Since Darien is the shrimping capitol of Georgia Capt Wynn can advise you where to purchase fresh shrimp if they are in season.
