Second stay here - - once again, wonderful communication from start to finish. Didn't have to guess where my slip was, nor how to set fenders or lines - all explained ahead of time. Helpful, friendly, and professional service at the dock by Aaron. Great location to bike into historic district from. Wind kept pump out boat from service on Saturday, Tom came in early Sunday (on Mother's Day!) to assure we were taken care of and then checked on everyone else at the dock.

Everything was great. The purpose for our visits as to bring our dog to a veterinarian for a problem. The owner loaned his personal vehicle to bring him to the vet. Thanks, Captain Mike

Great marina with a loaner truck, bikes and free washers! The owner is super helpful.
by katekotz on Apr 11, 2022
Wow! What a great marina!! Everyone working the marina was amazing and so incredibly helpful. We had a great exploring the area. We will definitely be back! Thank you Ladies Marina!

Great restaurant only 15 min wait excellent food. Worth a several day stay to see history and beautiful Beaufort, SC
by dkrohn321 on Dec 29, 2021
Great service and walking distance to two restaurants.
by wvjohnmay on Dec 28, 2021
Aaron was extremely helpful. He met me at the dock when I came in. He provided information in advance as the best time to arrive and gave useful navigation tips the day before I arrived. The marina has an on-site restaurant that is excellent and there are other options within easy walking distance.
by fosterkane on Dec 05, 2021
Dock master Aaron made docking and check-in easy. We made use of the courtesy car to visit historic Beaufort on a still, sunny, Sunday morning. So glad we did. A nice Publix Supermarket is close to the marina for provisioning. Individual showers and toilets always appreciated. Laundry and boaters lounge too. Bikes can be borrowed. Great stay! Thanks Aaron.
by svcueto on Nov 18, 2021
This was a great stop for us on SV Scrimshaw. Everything is so centralized. Tom and Aaron are both amazing. I left my boat at this marina and knew I had no worries. I highly recommend this marina to anyone.
by oneeyedogcrew on Nov 02, 2021
Wonderful place with a great vibe and terrific people!
They have a courtesy car which is a real treat these days and they are super Dog friendly!
We will stay here again and avoid the hustle and bustle of the downtown Beaufort docks. This is convenient enough to dinghy over to Beaufort or use the courtesy car!
by rwm993 on Oct 19, 2021
Outstanding Marina - one of the nicest we've stayed at along the ICW. Very friendly and generous staff, clean and modern docks & facilities. Highly recommended.
by instantkarma on Oct 12, 2021
A small marina providing impeccable service. Tom was there to welcome us and help us dock. He was always available to accomadate our every need, and was on hand to assist us when we left. A gem of a marina!
by bugmantoo on Oct 11, 2021
Lots of places to shop within walking distance. Restaurants near by. They also provide a courtesy car. Very nice restrooms and showers. Great laundry room. Nice people.
by boatclimber on Oct 04, 2021
The people were great, the facilities were wonderful, in a great location with some really good restaurants and bars. The only thing that could have made it better would be to have somebody vacuum the vents in the shower rooms. As you can tell I'm really nit picking here. The free pump out was a real pleasant surprise.
by chuckh on Sep 23, 2021
Had to spend a few extra days here undergoing repairs. Tom and the entire staff could not have been more helpful. Clean facilities, nice captains lounge, even a courtesy car. We will definitely be back when we are in the area!
Thank you so much for the review. We hope to see you and Donna again. Fair winds and following seas my friend!
by mikehedlund on Sep 16, 2021
We stayed here during August 2021. This is the nicest, friendliest, cleanest marina we have ever stayed at. It is not too big (75 slips?) and is on a very calm lowcountry "creek" in a "no wake" zone. The management (Tom) and staff (Matthew, Aaron) are the friendliest we've encountered in our travels and will go out of their way to assist with anything. The use of bicycles and even a loaner car to make grocery runs is a great plus!! There are nearby groceries, hardware, fast food, cafe's and restaurants. A stay at this great marina combined with the allure of the Beaufort SC lowcountry charm is a winning combination. We will definitely return and recommend to everyone. Mike/Friend Ship
Mike - Thank you so much for the kind words. We enjoyed having you stay with us and look forward to seeing you again. Hope the Keys are treating you well. Take care, friend!
by nailedit on Sep 05, 2021
Great place and very friendly staff. Tucked away nicely.
by danbuffington on Aug 15, 2021
Staff were extremely helpful, facilities were very clean. Marina was quite and peaceful, not a lot of wake action. Can't wait to go back!!!

Easy, no issues, dockhand was helpful
by sharonlmiracle on Jul 19, 2021
Great marina. Very clean bathrooms and showers. Well maintained. Owner is great. My only wish is that it was a little bit cooler/better ventilated in the shower rooms. Even after taking a lukewarm shower it was difficult to get dressed.
Would definitely stay there again.
by sailutopia on Jul 11, 2021
Tom and Matthew met us we arrived to the dock to give us a hand, show us around and made sure we were set for the night. Very CLEAN shower facilities and amazing food at the restaurant at the marina. We would highly recommend Lady's Island marina for the perfect stay in Beaufort!
by bkotz1 on Jun 28, 2021
Great stay! Tom was amazing, met us at dock with a smile after hours, allowed us to use the loaner car to go into town for dinner. I can’t say enough about the service here.
Thanks for being great boaters and people. Come back!
by owensned on Jun 25, 2021
The owner, Tom Daniels, couldn’t have been more helpful. An extremely nice individual. The Marina has the cleanest bathrooms and showers of any Marina we have been in. No rust or corrosion on the fixtures like other marinas. Great lounge/kitchen area for boaters to use. Washers were free to use, you just had to pay for the dryers. Will definitely stay here again. Water was also very calm and a protected from wake on the intercoastal.
by rdkngjck on Jun 12, 2021
Very nice place. Older but clean. Nice people. Small boat store, excellent restaurant. Great hardware store nearby.

What makes a vacation?
People, Places and Things
Our stay at Lady’s Island Marina has exceeded our expectations in all three categories. We trailered our Ranger Tug R21EC “RedBird” here from Athens, GA and kept her in a slip at the marina while staying at the B&B for a week.
The facilities (Things) here are excellent. Tom has done an outstanding job of outfitting this B&B with quality furnishings that are tasteful and well maintained. The view out the windows is to die for. The same level of care is evident in the rest of the Marina facilities.
The location of the Marina (Place) is perfect. A short distance to shopping for necessities and convenient to downtown Beaufort for tourist shopping. And, on the water side the marina is protected from the weather out on the river but so close it’s an easy trip to Beaufort, Port Royal and other interesting stops. We also found the Marina Gift shop fun with Diana being a wealth of information about the area. And we took advantage of the salon and got our first haircuts since COVID lockdown forced do it your self approaches.
And finally the very best part of the experience has been the People. Everyone in the marina has been extremely friendly and helpful. However, the person who has really made our trip so wonderful is Tom Daniels! Tom as been such a great host. He was encouraging to us when planning the trip and continued to be such a great resource all thru the week we stayed here. Somehow he always appears at just the right moment when we were in need. Either when we had a question or when we needed a hand in coming into the slip with our boat when the wind was picking up. He is truly an amazing person with such a positive attitude. The Place and the Things here would not be the same without this Person (Tom).
Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity to experience Low Country hospitality. We will definitely return and tell others about Lady’s Island Marina.
Very Best Wishes to Tom, his family and Lady’s Island Marina.
Harry and Brenda Hayes
by freiroy on Jun 07, 2021
We loved it here. Even though we could have used the complimentary bikes or car, we chose to zip over to town in the dinghy and then took a trip up the Ashley River just for fun . So easy. Glad we chose to stay here in the calm water instead of getting rocked at the city marina. Will definitely be back on our return trip in the fall.
by rhhedrick on Jun 01, 2021
Really like this marina. Great dock hands to get you in and out. Walking distance to stores and restaurants. Pump out boat on site if needed Loaner truck if needed. Only draw back is they don’t open until 9am.
by southernbedells on May 21, 2021
Great marina. People are helpful. Courtesy car an assest. Easy reprovisioning, stores right across the street. Journey Canvas is on premises and does outstanding work. We will be back!
by abgagne on May 05, 2021
Lovely small marina tucked in a beautiful spot. Extremely nice owner/operator, incredibly helpful. Will absolutely stay there again.
by kgaddis1970 on May 04, 2021
Tom and his crew took great care of us. We made a same day reservation and arrived later than planned after they were closed. Tom made sure we had help with the dock lines and personally greeted us after we arrived.
by hutch on Apr 18, 2021
We enjoyed the staff and near by restaurant but the walk over the bridge to Beaufort is a definite Uber.
by ldicenzo on Apr 11, 2021
Tom the dock master/owner runs a great marina, once there he gave us information on the area. They also have a courtesy car so we could pick up some groceries. There is a great ship's store, clean bathrooms and shower, and laundry. It is an easy in and out from the ICW. Thanks Tom, we always enjoy our stay, we will be back!
Great boaters make it easy work. Thank you for the kind words. Look forward to your return! Tom
by longtimeboater on Apr 08, 2021
Great customer service, used loaner car and bikes. Great location to shop and visit Beaufort.
by pjadams on Feb 02, 2021
Enjoyed our stay - only one night tho' as we're on the move right now. Received a very warm welcome from the marina owner, Tom, and a nice tour of the marina's facilities. All very well taken care of! A great restaurant right on property - Lady's Island Dockside. Super delish & the price was really reasonable. Lots of good eating options nearby without having to go into downtown Beaufort. The Lady's Island Marina giftshop was amazing and the ladies running the show fabulous! I never buy gift shop items but 90% of their goods are made by local artisans - from foods to decor - all lovely and worth the visit! Next time we will stay longer as the Beaufort and it's surrounding areas are full of wonderful things to explore.
by mzimet73 on Jan 22, 2021
What a great find! First, we were met at the dock by a smiling Tom, new owner. He handled the lines professionally and introduced us to all the amenities at the marina. A special delight was the dinner at Dock Side restaurant right up the ramp from the marina. I would give the six stars if I could.
by jkmacleod on Jan 21, 2021
Love this place. They have everything you need or it’s nearby. Owner and staff couldn’t be nicer. Hate to share this but they deserve to be recognized for excellence
by vlmwdjlx2cuglxeaaazy on Nov 28, 2020
Nice facilities, friendly professional service. Appreciate the courtesy car and loaner bikes. This is a well thought out, well executed, customer focused marina.
Super kind of you to take the time and write this review. It means a lot. Glad you enjoyed your stay and we were able to meet your needs. Tom
by belliswood2 on Nov 24, 2020
Nice amenaties. Bathrooms/ showers clean. Nice gloating docks. Lounge with kitchen you can cook. Massage therapest and salon on premisis. Also canvas shop for DIY people. Very Nice owners ho out of their way to help out. 2 Loaner vehicles. Very nice protected inlet. Will be back.
Appreciate the kind words. Look forward to your return. Safe boating!
by gardeningone on Nov 16, 2020
DockmasterTom was very helpful. Nice, friendly, clean marina.
You must have caught me on a good day, lol. Truly appreciate you taking the time to post a review. See you next time! Tom
by cdrrivera on Nov 15, 2020
It was a really good stay. Tom was very personable a helpful. The floating docks are great. The showers and restrooms were clean. There are two restaurants within walking distance but we got there too late for our one night stay on our way south.
Just one night, yet you took the time to write us a positive review! Thank you and Happy Holidays! Tom
by belleofthewest on Nov 11, 2020
Great small marina. The staff was really helpful. They have a loaner car for store trips and the great restaurant next door. Definitely worth a return trip.
Thank you the writeup. We try hard and are very thankful when boaters, like you, take the time to acknowledge us. See you again, I hope. Tom
by g91xhia8nuvkmutxacsj on Nov 08, 2020
Thanks to the owner Tom and staff for going above and beyond in accommodating us. We will definitely stop there again.
I wish I recognized your log in so I could offer a direct thank you. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Tom
by jdrank on Oct 26, 2020
Can’t say enough nice things about this place. Wish we could have stayed longer but were on a time schedule to head to St Augustine. Dock master, Tom, came back to the marina to help us dock as we arrived after closing. Great amenities, facility, very clean and great location with several restaurants in walking distance. Looking forward to coming back and staying longer!
It was easy to return and ensure a safe arrival. Thank you for your kind words. Look forward to your return. Tom
by lexspinal on Oct 19, 2020
The marina owner and staff are very accommodating, and quick to assist with any need you may have. The facility is immaculate, and obviously very well maintained. The location is convenient to great restaurants, convenience stores, and open water. There is even a vehicle for marina guests who need a lift. We will definitely dock and stay again.
Come back! Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Glad you had a positive experience. Tom
by mjones823 on Oct 14, 2020
Update: the marina is still wonderful as ever!!! Clean quiet and can’t say enough nice things about Tom (the owner). If I could give the marina 10 stars I certainly would. This is a regular stop in our travels.
So quiet, clean has many wonderful things on site (marina store, canvas shop, YOGA?!) We ate at the restaurant Dockside, it was very very good. Can't wait to travel back in the fall to spend more time here! thank you Mary!!
Thanks so much, Southern Latitude - we'll see you next time! FYI, Mary left us back in June for Safe Harbor up in Solomon's - happy for her. Our Yoga has been replaced with a super awesome hair salon, One Salon. Pay a visit next time you're here and thanks again for the kind words
by jwhite3269 on Sep 13, 2020
Great location and convenient marina for trip to Beaufort, courtesy car was nice to get us to our AirBNB. Friendly staff, wish we could have stayed at the rental onsite, looked amazing!
Thanks for the kind words. We're adding a second airbnb unit with downtown views to help meet demand. Should be in before the end of year. Hope to see you again. Tom
by pachis on Aug 31, 2020
New owner [Tom] as of 1 yr. New dockmaster [Matthew] as of 1 month [Aug2020]. Both trying very hard to please. A pleasure to stay where personal attentiveness is foremost. NOT a 'corporate' facility ......
You two were awesome. Next time we've got to dock you a little closer! Tom
by bsession3 on Aug 31, 2020
Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Docks are in very good shape and found it easy to park. Had a great stay and plan to go again. Thanks guys!!!!
We are so lucky to have such great boaters. We're working hard to maintain our little spot while also adding some updates to it as we are able. Hopefully it'll keep getting better! Tom
by dchambless on Jul 27, 2020
Very nice and everyone was very friendly.
Great people on a lovely boat. Thanks for staying at Lady's Island Marina! Tom
by tmullen on Jun 30, 2020
Super friendly. Great restaurant. Walk to several amenities. No problem getting in and out with 5 ft draft.
Tom, thank you for the review. Glad you enjoyed your stay at Lady's Island Marina, as well as visiting our restaurant, Dockside. Truly enjoyed meeting you. Tom
by chanceraehn on Jun 22, 2020
Wonderful experience. It’s off the main river and out of the way of the traffic. Facilities are great and there are several restaurants within walking distance to choose from. Tom, the owner was extremely helpful and courteous. We definitely look forward to coming back soon. Thanks Tom!
Thank you, Chance. You and your wife were wonderful to have at the marina and I look forward to your return.
by hhipaula on Jun 14, 2020
Awesome experience. Everyone at the marina was welcoming and very helpful. The Dockside restaurant onsite is a must do! Restroom and showers were very clean. Peaceful and quiet at night. Off the beaten path. Fully recommend!
by chriskraska on Jun 11, 2020
Great night at this marina. Tom, the owner is very accommodating and friendly. Great clean modern facilities with everything you need. Restaurants on premises and nearby. Will be back.
That was so kind of you to take the time to review the marina. Truly look forward to your return. Tom
by steadfast1997 on Nov 06, 2019
This is one of our favorite stops on the ICW. Follow Mary's directions and the approach is straightforward, depths more than ample. She and resident boaters are friendly and helpful; facilities clean and well-maintained. The restaurant next door is excellent; provisions and liquor are a short walk up the road. Downtown is just across the bridge. This is less expensive, less exposed to winds and much more pleasant than the downtown pier.
Thanks so much, Steadfast - it was great to see you!
by bluewatersail on Nov 01, 2019
Super friendly, very helpful, felt at home comfortable. Clean and well kept up. Lady’s Island is definitely the place to stop visit coming & going on your water travels.
by odissea on Jun 12, 2019
Simply the best experience in Beaufort if your looking for a simple nights rest or a long term berth. A bohemian village of charming helpful caring folks that will probably hold you hostage well beyond you’re planned departure date. Great facility at a very competitive price. Located on Factory Creek, the ultimate hurricane hole!
by trawlerbound on Jun 12, 2019
Up and down the east coast ...... this is one of my home away from home spots. Dockmaster Mary will take great care of you. If you need canvas work, Journey Marine is the one you want doing your work. Need to get some "do it yourself" work done, the marina shop on site is the place.
Love the vibe of this marina.
by gjmcc1015 on Jun 12, 2019
We love Lady's Island Marina. Great facility and even better community of people. Mary, the dockmaster, is the best! Everything you might need, grocery, hardware, propane, banks, restaurants are close by. What more could you ask for?
by jgutten on Apr 12, 2019
Lady's was a great stay for us. Mary greeted us and helped us into the dock with a smile. We eat at the restaurant on site. Great! Love this place and will be back.
by wendibailey on Mar 13, 2019
Stayed 3 nights. Enjoyed dinner at the Dockside Restaurant right behind the marina. Our dog enjoyed the play area and meeting tge dock master’s dog SweMo. We checked out the courtesy car for provisioning. Bonus! Very clean and super friendly. PS: it’s on a marsh so expect and respect the dreaded noseeums and bring your Skin So Soft!
by starchaser on Aug 06, 2017
My son & I were on a trip from Tampa to Baltimore & stayed here for 3 nights. Quiet, Calm, Mary is very friendly. Rates are a tad high, but offset by other amenities, like a loaner car!
by aeromarine on Dec 06, 2012
Moorage rates are a bit high for this area, but I liked the people we met. We would stay there again, when passing thur.
by cruise_pilot on Jul 25, 2010
Have stayed at many Marina's on the Intercoastal Waterway. This is the BEST. We just left Hilton Head and will stay here for the long term.
Has the best & cleanest showers, and restrooms, and they are all private units.
The marina rates are very resonable.
Short walking distance to many restaurants & shopping.
ACE Hardware 1 1/2 blocks away has a large store and great marine selection.
Great restaurant at the Marina.
Just over the bridge, then your downtown.
Close to all marina services.
Enterprise Car Rental will pick up & drop off.
Same for cabs.
Operated by a Super dock manager. (Ted & his wife)
Safe and secure place to leave your boat. Best place to be during a storm.
Pump out, but no fuel.
Free cable TV with lots of channels.
WIFI has just been upgraded.
