This is a very nice little marina with good amenities. But the best thing about it is their great Dockmaster. Jay was awesome. He ensures we had a slip and helped us dock in terrible weather.
Jay who manages the marina is a hero and amazing guy. Not only did he save us with a can of gas when we ran out but he also bandaged our sons foot after he removed a splinter. Heritage Plantation is a beautiful marina that is VERY well maintained. I definitely recommended this place!
Heritage Plantation Marina is a great stop. Not much available for shopping. A quiet, comfortable stop. Great for pets. Facilities are excellent. Friendly community. Even though we would not arrive until late, Jay, the dock master had everything laid out for us and would meet us in the morning. Thank you. We will mark this for our return trip.
Returning northward on the ICW some four years after first seeing this Marina, which was not in our Marina book, we had a breakdown. Anchored in the river, we called the dock master, Jay, who immediately came out in a small boat and expertly maneuvered us to the dock where he helped us tie up, noting the currents which can be problematic. What a delightful place and such a friendly and helpful dockmaster! Everything is clean and tidy. The boaters lounge and the deck and crows nest are available for use by transients, but what makes it special is the fact that residents also come down to the Marina and like to get to know the transients - very welcoming. Lovely bathrooms, good showers, laundry facility. Jay is a really helpful fellow, answering any questions and anxious to please. What started out for us as an unfortunate setback has turned into a memorable interlude in a lovely spot.
The Heritage Marina with the million dollar view is a treasure for our community. The well maintained docks, deck, rest rooms and club room are first class. We have enjoyed many sunset views sitting in the Cypress Lounge.
I have been an active/casual observer of Heritage Marina for the past nearly 20 years and have seen it progress from its early basic origins to the excellent 1st class status it enjoys today.
The marina has always been maintained in good condition but in the past two years especially, I have seen it improve significantly with completely new decking throughout, fresh painting of office area, lounge, bathrooms, showers, with other enhancements planned or in progress.
The marina currently continues to be clean, well maintained and managed, with a competent and very commendable Dock Master on site. D.West – Heritage Plantation resident.
Jay, the dock master makes you feel welcome.
Lovely place. Great, clean, air conditioned showers with lots of hot water at high pressure. Free laundry. Free pump-out. Dockmaster Jay is very helpful.
Jay met us at the dock and helped us tie up. He then assisted us in pumping out our holding tank which was quite full. He was professional and compitent, explaining the features of the marina and helping us get guest passes for our friends to pick us up for Thanksgiving.
Everyone we met was friendly. Security was pleasant, they just needed to see our pass. Easy peasy.
Bathroom facilities were clean and more than adequate. Free laundry was a plus.
You must be prepared for wave slaps on the hull, and some boats do not allow up paying the docks so you will get rocked from time to time. This is the case at other marinas as well and Jay alerted is to this. Nothing horrible, just an annoyance.
Wonderful marina with a very competent and helpful Dockmaster, Jay Sheely. The marina provided a complimentary coffee service in a cozy lounge for transients and slip holders. A large deck with complimentary gas grill overlooked the Waccamaw River and there were an abundance of places to catch a beautiful sunset.
We booked a few nights stay here and are so happy we did! We came from Pennsylvania to see the total eclipse and neglected to mention we were towing the boat rather than coming up the ICW. Dockmaster Jay was so nice and helpful. He found us dry storage for our trailer and was very accommodating and informative. It was our first time in South Carolina - it's so beautiful! There are nearby beaches, a lighthouse, swamps, and a wildlife refuge right down the river. We enjoyed the wonderful sunsets and local restaurants. Everything you could want is within a few minute drive up the waterway. The dock itself looks new and has very clean facilities. We would love to return again for the "Southern Charm" and activities on Pawleys Island.
A very nice marina. Jay the Dockmaster is very friendly & helpful. Clean restroom, laundry, lounge, and patio area. The current is fairly strong (3-6Knts) so bet is to dock facing bow southward. You're on the ICW, with floating docks. My son & I came in with engine trouble in a 36ft Carver. Jay met us at the dock and helped pull us in on one engine. Then he helped to make sure we were squared away before going back to working on he marina. My only peeves are: 1. Other boaters on the ICW don't seem to remember about marinas and No Wake Zones. 2. The free WiFi is fast, but not a great signal out on the transient dock. However, a short walk (200ft) gets you into an air conditioned boaters lounge.
I'll be putting this on the places to revisit on the Great Loop route.
Dockmaster Jay is super friendly, knowledgeable and eager to accommodate. The facility offers all the amenities we needed including WiFi and shower.. as well as an incredible sunset.
Dockmaster Jay was very helpful and congenial. View was fantastic. Docking easy. Glad to know they welcome transients. Also, with help of Uber, this location means easy access to the many fine restaurants, beaches, golf and shopping which is available in this upscale area of the Grand Stand. We had a wedding reception to attend at Brookgreen Gardens. No problem.
Very nice overnight stop. Although there are no services, the facility is very nice. Bathrooms are clean and the docks are first class. If you are making tracks on the ICW, this is a great overnight stop.
Memorial Day weekend! Last minute we found this place. Intrepid- space seemed limited but the dock staff made room for us. From the marina to the guard gate everyone welcoming. Great rates! Will come again.
Heritage Plantation is a fantastic marina located directly on the Intracoastal Waterway. The amenities that this marina offers are second to none. The DockMaster was extremely helpful in securing me a slip for a very busy holiday weekend. I would recommend this marina to anyone traveling to the Pawleys area.
My husband and I saw this beautiful Marina headed North. I called in to see if they had room. The Dock Master J. answered right away! What a Nice guy. Very much a people person. He assisted in tying us to the dock. When asked about the area he had all the answers. If you need a UBER he has one on stand by. Everything about this Marina was peaceful, from the view to the home owners. Free laundry WIFI. The current was a little strong due to weather but J. made sure our lines were just right. If you want nice spot to dock I would recommend calling in. I couldn't believe the prices. VERY reasonable.
Had to make an emergency stop here and was greeted by the friendliest people. The Dock-master Adam is very accommodating, the facility is "Southern Comfort" picturesque beautiful. No fuel or ship store but everything else is above and beyond. Short or long term, this is a beautiful marina with a southern quality like no other.
