Hail Mary Power 45 ft 3.0 ft

This year, as you transit south, make some time to visit Hilton Head. There are closer options on the ICW, but NONE compare to the experience at Shelter Cove. The journey up Broad Creek is worth it, the views, the dolphins and ultimately the tranquility of Shelter Cove will be worth it. Surround yourself with a top notch marina and staff while stocking up at the area locations all a bike ride away ( and you get loaner bikes!!)

Shelter Cove Marina has been a family favorite destination since long before we owned our own boat. So as you could imagine, it was truly a dream come true to dock our boat here for a week! It was everything we hoped it would be, and more!

The marina itself is very well maintained. The entire staff is kind, helpful and very customer focused. There are security guards that walk around 24/7 and we felt extremely safe. There are amenities in the marina (bathrooms, free laundry, free bikes) as well as many restaurants. There is also a large grocery store (Kroger) that is a quick walk away. Plus some great shops!

Shelter Cove does have beach access. It's a long bike ride though to get to the beach.

The only negative about this marina is the proximity of some of the docks to the facilities. Hauling laundry to and from the laundry room was not easy. If you plan to use the laundry room a lot during your stay, you may want to mention that as you make your reservation and ask for the closest possible spot.

Overall, we absolutely loved our stay at Shelter Cove!

Don't bring your dinghy. We came in for lunch, and found out that they charge $20 PER HOUR if you tie up -- even if you're eating at one of their on-site restaurants. Parking in midtown Manhattan is cheaper! But it does look like a lovely marina.

M/V Hail Mary Power 45 ft 3.5 ft

This is a return visit to Shelter Cove Marina for the M/V Hail Mary in 2019. The quality, cleanliness and amenities of this marina make it a clear choice for travelers. The warm and friendly staff ensure that any need is considered and attended to, quickly. If you have travel plans on the ICW in the coming weeks, you must stop here to view the decorations and enjoy the Christmas Spirit. Definitely call quickly as they are filling up!

Hilton Head has several marinas to select from when planning your stay. My wife and I reviewed the location and amenities of all options and nothing stood out as well as Shelter Cove. I spent about a week of our first month here with only my boat and bicycle and found everything in the immediate area, shops, grocery, happy hours, and nice riding paths.

Having spent time in marinas from western Florida to North Carolina, I can assure anyone that the People make Shelter Cove the success we feel it is. Jason Wheeler and his staff are the most accommodating people I have come across at a marina. Shawn and Clayton work tirelessly to ensure that any need is tended to immediately, which is such a joy when living aboard.

Of course the amenities at the marina, including restaurants, boat side pump-out (offered twice per week!) and plenty of new (and free) laundry are the icing for this 5-star marina.

Very nice marina with excellent staff. Jason the dockmaster goes above and beyond to make your stay very pleasant. Very clean and nice restaurant just steps away.
