SC Marinas?

Hey y'all,
Relatively new to sailing, I currently have a Seaward 23 small lake sailing in Ohio and plan to move to an IP 38 in the next 5-8 years in South Carolina.

I'm brand new to the forum and am excited to dig into the wealth of information here. However, I happen to be on vacation in SC (Myrtle Beach area) and would like to check out some marinas. Anyone have an opinion on where start? (Please don't say Ft Lauderdale ;P)

Cheers!

Active Captain is your best bet for finding local marinas. Just download the App.

Re: SC Marinas?

The ICW is super inland around Myrtle Beach, so not really the best place to keep
a boat unless you like motoring in straight lines. Georgetown and then Charleston would probably be the areas to check out.

A lot can happen to a marina in 5 years. It may make more sense to find an area that you like, then research marinas when the time comes.

Yes, ICW is inland... so options for faster offshore access "near" Myrtle Beach might be the Little River area to the north (MBYC, for example) and Georgetown and Charleston to the south.

Osprey Marina is on the ICW, actually nearer to Socastee than Myrtle Beach. The Barefoot Marina isn't too far north of MB on the ICW.

Found a nice one at the Little River inlet. No bridges to contend with and 10 minutes to open water.
Thanks all for the welcome and input. ��
