We had a wonderful one night stay at St. John's. Adam was very helpful when we called to see if they had a slip available. He gave us clear instructions as to where to dock and was there to catch our lines. He checked us in quickly and gave us a tour of the facilities. We borrowed the courtesy car to do a provision run. The bathrooms are the best we've seen so far (great showers) and a laundry room complete with 2 ironing board & irons. The pool area is just lovely with a bbq AB's fire pit. We loved our stay here. Highly recommend it.

I just spent 10 days at St. John's Yacht Harbor while my husband flew home for business obligations. When we were researching available marinas (based on boater's reviews) near the Charleston airport which were safe, clean and convenient, SJYH was an easy choice. It is hands down one of the best marina we have stayed in out of the hundreds we have visited over the years.

The marina facilities are top notch. There are wide stable floating docks which are well lit after dark. The restrooms are professionally maintained with five private toilets and five private spacious showers with great water pressure in the ladies room. The laundry has four washers, four dryers, two irons and ironing boards and a long table to fold your clothes. The ship's store is well stocked with ready made sandwiches, snacks, drinks including, wine, beer, slushies, and cold brew on tap. The pool area is lovely and the water is the perfect temperature. There is a pump out boat that comes quickly to your slip. The marina is very dog friendly with E's two gentle goldens greeting you when they are there. And while the marina is not within walking distance of much, the is a loner car available which had only four thousand miles on it and was available often during my stay.

The community of boaters were wonderful! Offers to drive me for provisioning or to join them for a cocktail were plentiful.

Yet, it is the staff, led by the very capable Dockmaster, E, that are the best part. They are all professional, personable and helpful in every way. They are always walking the docks and available for any task, large or small. They also have a staff member overseeing the marina at night. We had a major storm come through one night and Steve, the night time staff member, came to check on me before it got really fierce (with rain, hail, thunder, lightening, 60+ winds) and offered me his cell phone number with the promise that I would call him, no matter the time, if I needed anything. E was also always readily available by phone and text for instant communication.

Thank you E, Daniel, Steve and the rest of the fabulous crew at SJYH! You've set the bar high as a world class marina.

This place isn't cheap but wow what a facility and staff. (By not cheap, I mean I bought 2 ice cream sandwiches and was surprised when it came to $12!) Somehow the Snag a Slip reservation wasn't conveyed to the dock staff (manager was out for the day). Luckily I phoned when we were 45 minutes out. The staff bent over backwards to get us on a dock (the fuel dock).

The bathrooms belong in a yacht club! Laundry superb but $6 a load. There is a pool, grill, and outdoor picnic area. There is also a courtesy car. All top notch. Beware the tide but we thought St John was great.

It appeared on our arrival. They had no idea who we were. No paperwork filled out, completely overlooked the fact that we had a reservation and had no real plans on where to put us, ended up putting us on the slip that was too small for our boat. Even when I went to check in the young lady, working up at the office, still had no idea who I was or why I was there. The location of this Marina, along with his other businesses, such as small boat rental make this one of the worst waked marinas we have ever been in..I even had to ask two staff members to slow down in the fair ways… so leave this place to the boat renter types and look elsewhere for a peaceful night.

A Note from the Marina:

Snag-A-Slip reached out to the marina manager for further comment but did not hear back regarding this review.

I mirror the sentiments of the previous poster regarding the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. They were extremely helpful with docking and leaving and I would be remiss to not inform you there is a pretty significant current which will make docking and leaving a bit of a challenge. The facility is maintained well and the courtesy car can get you to area grocery stores for an re-provisioning needed. There isn't anything walking distance from the marina so if you're looking for a quiet place for the night with helpful staff, this is your place but again be advised about the current.

Absolutely top notch marina and staff. We had an extended stay to tend to some maintenance and upgrades and we were actually a little sad to leave when the time came! The docks are in great shape, and were getting redecked during our stay. The heads and showers were clean and well kept. Probably one of the better showers I've had anywhere on the ICW, plenty of hot water and pressure. The laundry room is spacious, with a folding counter and ironing boards. The dockmaster's office/ships store is small, but has a great selection of drinks and snacks. Even has a coffee bar with cold brew on tap!

And the staff? You couldn't put together a better crew if you tried. E, Stan, Bailey, Austin, Mitch, Bobby and the rest of the crew made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and they went well above and beyond to help us. Their generous hospitality was remarkable. I won't stay anywhere else when I'm in the area.

This marina has the cleanest bathrooms, showers and laundry room that we have ever seen. It is about 5 miles away from Charleston and a loaner car is available.

We broke down on way to Beaufort and had to be towed from North Edisto River. No other marinas wanted to take us since we were not under own power. Tow Boat US recommended them and they welcomed us even though after hours. Steve came out to help us in and get set up. They provided a free courtesy car for 3 hours so we could provision. Recommended a great restaurant Wild Olive and entire staff very helpful including the repair parts that came they brought right to our boat. The marina is great now and they are doing additional upgrades. Can't wait to see it in the spring on way back up North. Would plan a couple days to try other restaurants, breweries and distillery an Uber away.

Very nice Marina a little bit outside charleston. We chose it for the affordability and the comfort. Did get some waking there from small boats traveling the Stono River, but nothing unmanageable. The staff, Steve particularly, we're extremely helpful and hospitable. Has a loaner car which is a super plus. Will stay there again. There's also a lovely pool area that you can enjoy as well. Only reason it didn't get five stars was because of the conditions of the docks, they were good floating docks, would some of the screws were coming out and it made it a little more difficult for the pets to walk. The bath house is probably the finest I've seen. Clean, large and well air conditioned.

Current runs swift so pay attention to the dockmaster's advice. Our one week stay was easily extended to enable us to continue to visit with our daughter. Courtesy car used during our stay that allowed us to resupply food and to pickup parts at a local marine supply. Had several maintenance issues to address while there. Local knowledge of good service people to assist was appreciated. Pump out boat arrived every Monday to empty our tank. Again, the dockmaster and staff are on the top of their game.

Ditto the review below - would give 6 stars if I could! Wonderful staff - Stan, Steve and E went above and beyond to help us and had great recommendations for the area, and are truly friendly people - and the bathrooms/showers were so nice I could’ve slept there lol. Same care with laundry room ($1 machines)! Free pump outs either at the fuel dock or served by the pump out boat. There’s a nice pool, and post Covid I’m sure the other gathering spaces will be lively. The night time lighting was comfortable and not glaring.
The location was fairly low on boat traffic, so not a lot of rocking, had such easy boating access to waterways, anchorages, islands, beaches and creeks that we will go back for more exploration. A walk from the marina between the only two nearby neighborhoods passes a bird filled marsh and was a nice way to start my day.
Courtesy car, easy access to shopping (Muddy Waters Coffee and Normandy Bakery; both two thumbs up!), and of course all the attractions of the Charleston area are a bonus.
