Exceptional. Beautiful location. Clean marina. Trent is the dock master and we can’t say enough about him. He is beyond helpful, personable and really enjoys his job. We hope the owner of this marina knows just how dedicated Trent is. A real Southern gentlemen who is always ready to help at a real Southern gem of a marina. Many thanks Trent we hope to see you again soon!

Marina located in a Beautiful Gated Community, with amazing views of the Waccamaw River. Dockmaster Trent is great. Only reason for 4 stars is that Docks need a little TLC and WiFi not great

Quiet, not fancy, strong currents but easy in out along face dock, great scenery but lacks amenities. Trent the Dockmaster is awesome. He has good local knowledge and makes your transient stay very welcoming. The 2-seater swing atop the roof of the dockmaster’s office is great.

The Marina is somewhat isolated but that is the location so no surprise. Tied up on inside of king dock in 20kt NE winds with help of other boaters - staffing is limited hours, but good communication. Nice facilities at Mariana, with a great patio to enjoy in nice weather. Single washer/dryer that was free and nice boaters lounge. Would stay again as nice stop on way to Charleston.
by Frank L. - Verified user on Apr 11, 2023
Wonderful warm welcome by a very competent dock master. We can’t say enough good about Mr. Trent’s excellent boat handling skills, knowledge of his waters, and kindness in recommending the highlights of the area. The Marina itself is delightful, cleanest restroom and shower rooms we’ve ever seen in a marina!! The docks are floating which was a bonus in the super high tide from just past full moon plus storm flooding. We walked around the adjacent 500 home gated community and revelled in the gorgeous landscaping, abundant wildlife, and the hospitality of every person we met. Then we enjoyed our happy hour sitting on the porch swing high up in the crow’s nest overlooking the beauty of the marina and river. Such a peaceful place! We will definitely stop here any time we are close by!! We think it’s the best kept secret in all of the East coast marinas! But check it out!!

A fine place to stay. A little run-down seeming for the price. They didn’t let the gate guard know my son was coming, so there was a little rodeo with him getting in to the marina by car. But, friendly people.
by Vicki E. on Nov 16, 2022
We stayed one night at Heritage, it was a good stop for trip down the ICW. We were able to get groceries delivered, no fuel, no pump out, but the showers and restrooms were great. Laundry is available. We were new to the fast currents so they asked a couple already there to assist us with ropes.
by Joshua B. on Nov 16, 2022
We stayed at Heritage Plantation Marina for 5 nights waiting out the weather associated with Hurricane Nicole. Our 46’ sailboat did very well on the great floating docks. The marina is just lovely, great attention by the dock master and great
facility. We will definitely stay here again! Great discovery!

Marina is just 6nm N of Georgetown SC on the ICW / Waccamaw River. Part of a gated community and golf course, it's just a couple of miles from groceries, shopping and restaurants. Pleasant walks with beautiful views of the river, marshes and course. Uber readily available. Marina staff is great – Trent (dock-master) welcomed us and assisted as needed. Facilities are clean and well maintained. Water, electrical, wifi and pump-out. Friendly folks and beautiful area! Enjoyed our stay.

It is a very nice marina. Trent is very helpful in all ways possible. The lounge is comfortable and clean. The bathrooms top notch. The laundry machine is handy. We had a rental car so we were able to travel out of the neighborhood, otherwise this is a one night stop. The main dock tilts and some of the cleets are not very secure so that is the reason for only 4 stars. But, the management team is focused on fixing it so I look forward to stopping here again on my way south this fall.

Trent, the Harbormaster was excellent. Being relatively new boaters, the wind and current we’re challenging (for me 😉). Trent was very patient through my multiple attempts to dock. The marina itself was wonderful. Good power, floating docks and great Wi-Fi. The restrooms were immaculate. A great value and we will visit again!

Our stay at the Heritage Plantation Marina on March 26, 2022 was terrible…worst experience at a marina ever. Prior to arriving, the marina did not answer the phone nor return any voicemail messages. The only responses were cryptic messages on Dockwa. Upon arriving, I hailed the marina several times and finally received a response from someone that said "no one worked there". We pulled up to the dock during operating hours only to be greeted by a homeowner that just happened to be on the dock. The face dock was in disrepair with no rub rails, therefore causing significant damage to our boat's gel coat. The marina appears to be owned by the Heritage Plantation HOA with no management or dock staff. We sent emails to the president of the HOA and the management company, along with photos of the damage to our boat. No response in two weeks. Obviously this HOA should not be listed as a commercial marina or advertised on Dockwa.
by Brandon H. on Mar 18, 2022
Five stars isn't enough for not only this marina but for their Dock master. Greeted upon arrival by Jay. He tied me up and informed me on the area. He is very knowledgeable. Since I just purchased my boat my car was 36 miles from the marina. I told Jay how I couldn't find an Uber could he help. I found out he lives a hour and fifteen minutes away from the marina and a hour away from my car. This should tell you the type of guy he is. I needed to drive home for the night and an unexpected storm came through. My boat lines snapped I was afraid I would loose my home, only to find out jay came on his day off to make sure every boat at the marina was safe. He sent me pictures of before and after as I raced back to my boat. This man goes over and beyond for his boaters. With speaking with him I found out this marina will be loosing a great asset, for he has turned in his notice and will be
working closer to home. I can't thank Heritage enough for having such a great guy working for them. He helped untie me. I feel not only was I taken care of but I have a new life long friend.
Thank you for the 5-Star Review!

My daughter and I were kayaking the Waccamaw River from the start of the river to Georgetown. We needed a place to stay near the Heritage Marina the night before our final day. I called Jay the Dock Master and problem solved. We had never met and he still bent over backwards to find us a place to stay/camp overnight. There was no place to stay at Heritage but he found us another place. Jay was a life saver for us. I'm sure that he will be as helpful to you if needed.

Pros; Great dock master, good toilets & facilities. Free laundry, gated community, Brookgreen Gardens nearby.
Cons; Dock extends out into river so high current and bad boat wakes.
Face dock is sloped at 10 degrees, so beware.

After a beautiful day of traveling the ICW we decided to drop anchor in the Wakamaw River. Unfortunately our anchor failed. It was after 8 pm and we needed to find an emergency marina. I called the marina and it was closed. However there was a phone for the dock master. I called and left a message. Jay called me back. I explained my situation and he reassured me that everything would be fine. We docked for the night. His hospitality and genuine caring for our situation made our unexpected stay beyond beautiful! If I could leave a thousand star review I would!!!! My next trip down the ICW in October I will absolutely make sure to stay here again!! If you find yourself In the ICW please stop here for the night!

We were bringing our boat to the Marina, I contacted Jay the dock master and he was very informative and helpful. We we arrived he walked us thru docking, his knowledge of the Marina and its tides made it a very easy to dock. He was very helpful in getting lines right. Once docked he came back at least three times to make sure everything was ok and lines were proper. He is a great asset to this Marina.

We were displaced by the 2020 hurricane that destroyed our marina in Southport, NC. Finally released from the rubble we travelled south looking for a place to stay since our dock was destroyed and we had been without water or electric for nearly 2 weeks. Our good fortune found us at this beautiful and accommodating location. Jay, the marina manager was delighted to provide us with a hearty welcome and made us feel as if we had come home. If you pass by this lonely stretch of the river be sure to stay awhile to enjoy a most incredible sunset. Super clean restrooms and facilities with a most gracious host.

Great marina in a beautiful quiet location. Docks in good condition, good clean facilities, and free washer/dryer access.
Ideal for leaving your boat for extended periods as the marina is in a gated community (you get a pass when you arrive) and therefore very safe.
Dock on the inside of the main dock to avoid the occasional wake.
Jay -Dockmaster- is very friendly and knowledgeable. He helped us out many times with advice and local knowledge. Everyone else we met in the marina was also extremely friendly.
Good restaurants, hardware stores, and a West Marine all within 20 min drive.
In conclusion, great place to stop for a night or a month!

I am a homeowner in Heritage, hence an "owner" of the Heritage Plantation Marina. My home overlooks the marina with a great westerly view of sunsets. Our Dockmaster, "Jay", in my opinion, is doing a fine job. We expect him to enforce the rules that are quite fair. The place is pretty much immaculate with clean restrooms and a really nice visitor area where one can sit, get a free cup of Keurig coffee, and watch the migration of boats south this time of the year on the Intra Coastal Waterway. I've noticed some high end transient power yachts and sailboats using our marina, probably more than in the past. Uber service is available into the Pawleys Island shopping area which has most stores and amenities anyone would need. Of course our own owners keep their boats here and the marina serves as a walking destination for many, having a marvelous observation tower to further enhance the fabulous view up and down the Waccamaw River all the way into Winyah Bay at Georgetown. Georgetown goes back to the Colonial era and is a can't miss visit!

Great location and easy in and out access from the river. Plenty of depth for our 5.5 draft. Jay, the dockmaster, is readily available and helpful with any questions you may have. I highly recommend Heritage Plantation Marina for either short or longer stays.

Heritage Plantation Marina is an excellent choice. I have my 46 foot sailboat docked here for several months. The dockmaster, Jay, is quick to respond to any inquiries and is readily available during business hours. He knows a lot about the local area and contractors. Heritage Plantation is a beautiful location with shopping, restaurants and beaches within nearby driving distance. I would highly recommend this marina.

This is an outstanding marina along the ICW. Even though it is not a destination marina (has restaurant, shops, close to things to do), it is well run, reasonable and not that far (about 2 miles) from good places if you have a car, uber or a bike. This is a great place to be if you have a dog (pet). the walking is great and safe being that it is a private subdivision. The monitor traffic going by better then any marina I'm aware of. With their docking special pricing, you can't beat it. Include the great rest rooms and free laundry (stacked washer/dryer) it is our new stop transiting north or south.

Having kept my 53’ boat at this marina for a year now I feel qualified to give it an excellent rating. The dock master is very responsive to any requests and can be counted on to do whatever he tells you he will do. The setting is beautiful, security is good, and the attenuating dock works well! I highly recommend this facility.

Dockmaster Jay goes out of his way to ensure you have a pleasant experience at the marina and on your boat.

We’ve used Heritage to dock our boat for 3 years in row.
Jay is the best! He helped us get out of a precarious situation with a smile on his face! Facilities are always beautiful and clean. Heritage and Jay will always be our 1st choice.

We were stuck in a bad storm and Jay was very welcoming to our family. He was very nice and offered us several things to make sure we felt safe and all the kids were calm. He gave us the remote and said make yourself at home.

Very accommodating deep water marina! Quiet spot to stop for the night.
We would stay here again.

This marina is great. Conveniently located just north of the cool on-water villa of Georgetown it offers deep water docks, a nice indoor captains lounge (with coffee and a Keurig), clean baths and showers and a nice outdoor deck. Dockmaster Jay will quickly earn your trust and appreciation for being courteous and very helpful.

We came to this marina in need of medical help last month. We were on our way to Florida when my husband began experiencing severe pain. We called the dock master on our way in and by the time we arrived, Jay (the dockmaster) had called an ambulance and it was on its way. He could not have been more kind and helpful. While we were at the emergency room, Jay looked into several possible accommodations for our little dog, Lolita, in case we could not get back to the boat that night. He called a couple of vets and also called his girlfriend to see if he could bring her home with him. She agreed immediately not even needing to hear the circumstances. We were there for three days (by the way after staying for two days, the third day is free), and he checked in with us regularly and offered any help we might need. I had rented a car which I thought needed to be returned to the rental office. I didn't know how I would return to the marina. When I mentioned this to Jay he told me he would arrange to have it picked up at the marina. This is a beautiful marina with an exceptional dock master - we look forward to our next visit and recommend all boaters spend a couple of days there! Deb, Bruce and "Lolita" Weaver

We have been by here many times, but this was the first time we stopped. What a gem. Unless there is some compelling reason to go to Georgetown, this is a much better overnight stop. Right on the ICW and easy in and out. Deep water. Nice floating docks and excellent wifi. The down side is that there are only houses and a golf course within walking distance, and only a few power pedestals have 50A.
Thanks for the great review! Glad you finally decided to try us out. We added a couple of extra 50amps last Spring and are looking to do more and more each season. Thanks again. Hope to see you on the turn around!
by Betsy G. on Nov 02, 2018
Jay, the dock master was extremely helpful. We made a last minute reservation on line and he responded very quickly via dockwa plus called to make sure we were all set. He helped us tie up and then gave us a tour of the marina and showed us where everything was. Clean facilities, tv to see the weather channel and even free laundry. We will definitely stop again when we are passing through.
Thanks for the great review! Enjoyed having you. Hope to see you on the turn around!

This review is not for staying at Heritage, because in the end we did not, but with how wonderful Heritage was with the handling of our reservation. Heritage Plantation had some damage due to the storms this fall and only had 30amp available when we accepted our Dockwa request. Thinking we had 30 amp connector on board (normally we use 50) we confirmed the reservation. We searched our boat to only find we did not so we looked at our charts and decided we could make it to Georgetown. Being a Sunday late afternoon And knowing no one would be at Heritage to dock us we contacted the marina through Dockwa to let them know we wouldn’t be stopping. Much to our surprise we received a credit for our reservation and really appreciated that gesture. Thank you Heritage. We hope to try you at a later time.

Great stop. Dockmaster was very helpful

We can’t say enough about how wonderful this marina is and especially their dockmaster, Jay! He takes special care of each boat here and treats everyone like family. He is very dedicated and did an amazing job dealing with the difficulties and hazards posed by Hurricane Florence and the resulting flooding. Thank you Jay!

Jay Sheely helped my grandchildren go fishing by creatively putting together twine, a nail, and a hook to make a
pole. He talked to them about being a Eagle Scout and took the time to positively engage with them. It was great experience for all.

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!
by Charles R. on Jun 16, 2018
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.

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.
by Tod H. - Verified user on Nov 26, 2017
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.
by John L. on Aug 06, 2017
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.

This is a great marina with clean and top knotch facilities along with a beautiful view on the ICW. The dockmaster, Jay, was very friendly and even went out of his way to make the kids feel welcome while we got a pump out! Also convenient to excellent restaurants and local bars in Pawleys Island which can be reached in 5 mins via Uber. We will definitely be visiting Heritage marina again!

We docked here after deciding the weather would not be fun at a near by anchorage. The current in the Waccamaw was moving pretty quick. Jay the dockmaster was very helpful in getting us docked on an inside facedock. Later he helped us turn the boat downstream to make our departure easier the next day. The floating docks are very nice and deep water. There is not fuel or a restaurant on-site.

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.

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.
