Don't let them put you on docks on the 'Disney' side of the harbor. Access from land to those docks is severely restricted. Some of them (K and L in particular) are accessible by foot or bike, but are a long walk from the restaurants and shops on the other side.

Shelter Cove Marina has been a family favorite destination since long before we owned our own boat. So as you could imagine, it was truly a dream come true to dock our boat here for a week! It was everything we hoped it would be, and more! The marina itself is very well maintained. The entire staff is kind, helpful and very customer focused. There are security guards that walk around 24/7 and we felt extremely safe. There are amenities in the marina (bathrooms, free laundry, free bikes) as well as many restaurants. There is also a large grocery store (Kroger) that is a quick walk away. Plus some great shops! Shelter Cove does have beach access. It's a long bike ride though to get to the beach. The only negative about this marina is the proximity of some of the docks to the facilities. Hauling laundry to and from the laundry room was not easy. If you plan to use the laundry room a lot during your stay, you may want to mention that as you make your reservation and ask for the closest possible spot. Overall, we absolutely loved our stay at Shelter Cove! Definitely a Top pick as far as marinas go!

Awesome staff, facilities and location. Could stay here for weeks! Very protected harbor as well. At low tide, saw no less than 6.5 total water.

This is a return visit to Shelter Cove Marina for the M/V Hail Mary in 2019. The quality, cleanliness and amenities of this Marina make it a clear choice for travelers. The warm and friendly staff ensure that any need is considered and attended to, quickly. If you have travel plans on the ICW in the coming weeks, you must stop here to view the decorations and enjoy the Christmas Spirit. Definitely call quickly as they are filling up!

Rented a slip through Dockwa at Hilton Head Island, the entire process was simple and fast. The Shelter Cove slip was perfect and the people friendly and helpful. Will do this again!

Excellent marina! The yacht basin is deep and very well protected. The amenities are great! Restaurants, shopping and entertainment all within walking distance. The docks are new with a full service fuel dock. The staff is awesome! Thanks Jason and Preston!

Great marina. At least 3 or 4 restaurants, live music almost nightly at an outdoor bar overlooking the marina. The staff was helpful, attentive, and great to deal with.

Beautiful facility with shopping nearby. Friendly marina staff. A must stop

Excellent marina in every major category! I recently kept my boat there for 22 consecutive months and I can say nothing but good things about the Dockmaster (Jason Wheeler), his staff, the condition of the marina, the atmosphere, location and amenities. I only left to spend some months on the Florida coast but will be sure to return in the early Summer. I highly recommend this marina.
