As always, a great place to stay. Great Fireworks show. Good marina staff.

Mariners should be informed a pump out for a 40 gal waste tank takes 40 min. That would be the courteous thing to do

by Russell W. - Verified user on Jun 19, 2023

Great set-up! Helpful staff!

by Chuck S. - Verified user on May 28, 2023
We thoroughly enjoyed our 1 week stay at Harbour Town Yacht Basin! It is truly a special place, with so much to offer - really nice Shops and Restaurants, great Bike trails, and relaxing on the Adirondack chairs, by the 18th hole of the Golf course. Only complaint is that the WiFi is “spotty”

by Denise P. - Verified user on May 22, 2023
Very protected harbor. Beautiful setting and thoroughly enjoyed the restaurants and the bike paths! Would definitely return!

Lovely spot, very central

by Mary S. on Apr 17, 2023
Thank you to all of the staff at Harbourtown Yacht Basin! We stayed over the busy Easter Holiday (just prior to the Heritage Golf tournament), and we couldn't have asked for better service. From the friendly dock hands to the help and recommendations of the dock master regarding wind forecast on the Port Royal Sound which ultimately extended our stay, our time on HH was wonderful! Thank you so much!

by Denise S. - Verified user on Apr 08, 2023
This is one of our very favorite marinas that we have visited. The location is protected and therefore easy to maneuver in. There are lots of restaurants and shops to walk to. And you feel like a rock star while there. Some people might not like tourists admiring their boat while docked but we thought that was fun, as if we drove up in a Lamborghini. They even give you a bottle of wine sourced from the Mondavi vineyards. Grey Poupon anyone?

by curt s. - Verified user on Apr 08, 2023
Great resort easy docking with a nice welcome and good golf

by Tom G. - Verified user on Apr 04, 2023
Great friendly place

by Mark S. - Verified user on Mar 03, 2023
Would be a 5 star but there was a dredge operating ALL NIGHT LONG right there in the basin, which was very noisy and made it difficult to sleep.

by Tom G. - Verified user on Jan 07, 2023
Harbor Town Yacht Basin is wonderful. We had a great stop over and delicious meal at the Quarterdeck. The fried chicken dinner was amazing!

by Mike S. - Verified user on Jan 02, 2023
Harbour Town is like a home away from home for me. The docks and stafe are amazing, not to mention the restaurants and shops within walking distance.

by Karen C. on Dec 01, 2022
First time visiting and we had a great time. Good food, great location, will definitely stop again if the opportunity arises!

One of our favorite stops! The dockhands are very knowledgeable and helpful, docks are in excellent condition, and they have a mobile pumpout. Great location to shops & restaurants, and laundry is great & on the honor system. We highly recommend this marina!

Very quiet slip. Everything you could want within walking distance. Warren watches and directs you in if needed. Dock hand was helpful. Dinner at the Quarterdeck bar was good and we walked up and got a bar stool on Saturday evening. We will definitely be back.

by Robert H. - Verified user on Jun 14, 2022
Great marina! Booked four nights but stayed six. We really like this marina, great shopping, restaurants, beach, and more. Even a free trolley to help you get around. We'll be back for sure!

by Jean C. - Verified user on Jun 08, 2022
Beautiful marina but this is our second stay in 2 years with 2 different boats and we couldn't get power. Had to run the generator all night both times. Not happy and won't return.

Great facilities. We've been coming to Hilton Head for over 40 years by land or by air. It was pretty special to come by sea and stay in a special place.

by Bill S. - Verified user on Dec 24, 2021
What a great place to stay for a couple nights! All the conveniences are close by, and with our bikes we had a lovely time exploring Sea Pines Resort. The marina is quiet and peaceful too.

by Teresa S. - Verified user on Dec 06, 2021
Great stop! Little or no current within the marina. April caught our lines at the fuel dock then handed us a welcome packet and a bottle of wine. Watch sunset from the top of the lighthouse or on the grass opposite the marina entrance. There are shops and a restaurant on site. We rode our bikes to the beach. Wonderful. Showers temporarily located in the Club House are a bit of a walk but worth it. Up there in our top 5 stops on the great loop. Thank you Harbour Town Yacht Basin! Scott and Tris GREEN EYES

by Steven L. - Verified user on Nov 30, 2021
The staff was amazing! The marina surrounding shops really felt like a place to vacation. I would definitely stay again, either on the boat or land. Really enjoyable place to relax.

by Joe C. - Verified user on Nov 15, 2021
The staff was amazing from the minute we arrived. They helped with the lines and power and gave us helpful info about the area and facilities. Nice wide, clean docks. A large area for dogs and lots of opportunities for walking. Dinner at CQ'S was great and I will plan to stay a little longer next time.

by James D. - Verified user on Nov 01, 2021

Great location a lot of things to do here. Great staff!

by Scott B. - Verified user on Aug 02, 2021
Wonderful facilities, great staff, only downside is a slight smell of sewerage along the back bulkhead (we presume this is from stagnant waters opposite the harbor entry).

by Scott M. - Verified user on Jul 18, 2021
One of our favorite marinas! Staff is helpful. Facilities are great and current renovations will make us even better. We were told renovations should be completed by April 2021. Highly recommend a stop here.

by Robert B. - Verified user on Jun 28, 2021
Received a bottle of red wine at check in. Harbor masters were great help! 2 bits of info that could be important: 1- the marina showers are currently located in the swanky golf club just outside the marina, (but a short walk from slip 58). It felt "odd" walking past folks dressed to "club code" in my bathing suit and sweaty t-shirt while carrying a beer... 2- shore power connections are located between slips and not on the side docks. The location is designed to be shared by larger yachts docking "Stern to" the main dock walkway. Not easy to reach with a smaller boat docking bow in unless you have at least 75' of power cord.

by Ron P. - Verified user on Jun 22, 2021
Great staff and pristine marina. We wish we could have stayed longer.

by Rick A. - Verified user on May 28, 2021

Dock electricity is under repair. Building housing marina office, restaurant and marina showers/restrooms going to be demolished soon. Don’t know when all will be fixed. Dockwa should make boaters aware of these current conditions.

by Paula A. - Verified user on Feb 08, 2021
A really nice marina stay! The basin is lovely; the marina crew very friendly and helpful; and the restaurants good! We did not use a lot of the resort's amenities as we had other plans for Hilton Head while we were there. The bike paths are absolutely lovely! My favorite part!

by Timothy M. on Dec 07, 2020
If you want to spend time at Hilton Head, this is the place to be. Lots to do within walking distance of the marina. The marina is absolutely first rate. Slips are a little tight for a novice but the lack of appreciable current and being largely sheltered from the wind, made it a piece of cake.

by Nancy H. - Verified user on Dec 06, 2020
Absolutely amazing. Beautiful Marina w/shops and restaurants. Go to Crazy Crab and request server Pat. Bike trails thru pine trees golf course and neighborhoods was outstanding.

by Gilles F. on Jan 07, 2020
This is a fantastic marina because of the people helping there. We always received by the dockmaster or any other assistants the best service. We have been staying there for several months. We enjoyed the music bands for the Holidays celebrations. I didn't give a 5* because the Seapines management, not the marina, charges $10 some delivery drivers like Publix to go through security or when we took Lyft (even we had a pass with us in the car). Uber can pass without to pay! Some marinas offer free shuttle. I believe that Seapine management should reconsider their policy.

We found paradise in South Carolina when we pulled into the Harbour Town Yacht Basin. Dock hand Maximilian greeted us at the fuel dock with a bottle of wine in hand. I am uncertain what the promotion was but we plan to return! Good job to the HTYB marketing team. Nancy and Jeff (inside the dock master office) were excellent and facilitated in helping us secure dinner reservations at an oceanside restaurant which was also excellent. Kudos to all at the Yacht basin!

by Jeffrey S. - Verified user on Apr 29, 2019
Great staff. Well maintained floating dock. Gave us a bottle of wine and introductory package. Lots of shopping and restaurants on site. Lots of golf nearby.

About Harbour Town Yacht Basin

For more than 50 years, the red and white striped Harbour Town Lighthouse has welcomed visitors to one of the most unique and beautiful places on earth. Located in the heart of The Sea Pines Resort, and ideally situated on Hilton Head Island's captivating Calibogue Sound, the Harbour Town Yacht Basin is recognized as a premier yachting destination on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. The full-service marina welcomes boaters year-round and offers slip rentals and sales, fuel, professional yacht sales and brokerage dealer, as well as a friendly, experienced staff.

Developer Charles Fraser, considered the pioneer of Hilton Head Island, led the team that constructed the Harbour Town Yacht Basin in 1969. Inspired by a harbour in Portofino, Italy, Fraser's vision for the basin was to attract mariners to Hilton Head Island, while preserving the island's natural landscape. His unique vision resulted in a design that preserved centuries-old hardwoods, in lieu of additional slips, and included the construction of the island's iconic Harbour Town Lighthouse.

Today, the Harbour Town Yacht Basin offers 100 slips in a world-class resort setting. Visitors have the option to dock for a day, a week, a month, or even a lifetime, and enjoy the marina's facilities and services, as well as convenient access to The Sea Pines Resort's amenities and accommodations.
