Although it is a little out of the way, the marina is great. Gas price very favorable. Helpful and pleasant staff and lots of restaurants, shops, activities nearby. We rented a condo for two nights walking distance from the docks; rented bicycles; and took a 2-hour kayak tour right there from the docks. Great place!

Excellent location and amenities.

by Allen E. - Verified user on Nov 24, 2023
It is a great location with restaurants and even a bakery within easy walking distance. A resort atmosphere and great spaces to take walks with the dogs which we enjoyed. We would highly recommend this marina. We wish to extend our thanks to Mason Lemon, the Harbourmaster, who handled a difficult situation proactively and professionally. The Marina is well served by Mason's leadership and standards of excellence. Moon River

I sailed south from CT to shelter Cove Marina during Covid, I had never been to Hilton Head prior but saw this was a protected marina on charts. I’m heading further south, and going to miss Shelter Cove. This is one of the best run marina facilities on the east coast. The staff at Shelter Cove is likely the most friendly and the most competent marina staff I’ve ever experienced. (It doesn’t suck that there are 6x restaurants and bars at the end of dock!) Shelter cove gets a AAA rating!

What a beautiful spot to spend a day, week or month. The Marina is in a beautiful sheltered location, impeccably clean and the staff were super friendly and helpful. Walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Can’t wait to return for a longer visit.

Fantastic Marina. Very nice and well kept. Very cool restaurants and bars and great vibe around the marina for sure. Staff was VERY friendly and helpful. Easy fuel dock and great marina store. Only thing to be aware of... NOT on the marina at all.... there is a very long no wake zone getting there... so add about 30-40 mins to your expected travel time. I would say worth it though.

Shelter Cove is an outstanding Marina! Located in a protected basin, off of Broad Creek, in Hilton Head. Docks are in excellent condition, the Staff is great, and facilities are top notch. There is a boardwalk that runs along the Marina, with numerous shops and Restaurants. There is also a large Shopping Center, with a Kroger Supermarket, just a short bike ride away. Make sure to to The French Bakery for a great Breakfast

So happy with our choice to dock at Shelter Cove. We arrived with our new boat during COVID and just loved ALL the amenities Shelter Cove had to offer. Clean facilities and friendly staff! Lots of great restaurants and shopping just steps away! We can’t wait to finish The Great Loop so we can return!

Was unable to get a good enough WiFi signal on ANY of the Onspot wifi's to be able to use it for anything significant. That was dissapointing for such an otherwise nice place. Other than that, Great

LOVE THIS MARINA! If you can dock there (outside of late - June to August - HOT) then do it! Awesome staff headed up by Capt. Shawn. Cannot be more friendly & helpful Well equipped, great cafes and restaurants within walking along the waterfront. We'll be back.

Always professional and great location

by Patrick M. - Verified user on Jun 12, 2023
They called as I was coming in to make sure I was doing good and call as I was leaving. They were waiting at the dock to show me where to go and helped me dock. It was the best experience I have had yet.

Great stop! Reasonable price, clean restrooms, loaner bikes, restaurants & groceries nearby. A bit in off Broad creek, but worth the cruise up past lovely homes.

Very nice and protected marina. Great, friendly staff. Many restaurants and shops around the marina with additional shops (grocery store, etc) nearby (easy bike ride). We didn't use the showers or bathrooms, but free laundry was a welcomed plus! The liveaboard next to us said they have been there for 2+ years and love it.
