It is always a pleasure to stay at Lady's Island Marina. Tom and Aaron are great. Nice facilities and docks. Shopping and dining options are good and are close by. 11/27/23 - Just finished another great stay. Once again everything was great. Thanks Tom and Aaron. See you next time.

We will definitely be back. This family owned marina pays attention to details and were a pleasure to work with. The location could not be better if you need to go to Publix, the hardware store, or just out to eat.

We had a wonderful stay at Lady's Island Marina. Aaron was very helpful and accommodating in getting us a berth for a week and was there to help us tie up when we arrived. Tom, the owner, was also incredibly friendly and a wealth of knowledge about the area. The marina is close to so many things. It is a short walk to a very good hardware store, a pharmacy, and multiple options for groceries. The marina has a loaner vehicle for short periods as well as bicycles to use. The restrooms/showers/laundry were very clean. It is a nice walk or bike ride over the bridge to access all that Beaufort has to offer - plenty of restaurants and shops to choose from. We cannot say enough good things about our visit here and will certainly return!

Aaron communicated quickly and clearly. Was of great assistance securing vessel in strong current. Could not ask for more.

What a gem! Lady’s Island and Beaufort are wonderful to explore with rich history and beautiful lowlands and historical buildings. The marina has well kept floating docks, clean restrooms, free washers & $2.50 dryers, free bicycles, a loaner car, and great staff. There’s a canvas shop on site, kayak/outfitting store with rentals, restaurant, and others. Within walking distance you have hardware, marine, groceries, dollar store, etc. Lady’s Island checks off all the boxes. We will be back again.

Fine marina 1/2 mile from downtown Beaufort. Aaron took good care of us. Filling station fun bar nearby

Good place to stay and good restaurant right by the marina. Little disappointed that the captains lounge is no longer there, but they are renovating it into something else.

Excellent experience. Aaron and Tom go the extra mile. You’ll be glad you’re there.

by Jeff H. - Verified user on Sep 17, 2023
Very helpful. Great communication on day of - weather, slip number, tie up side etc. They will give you a lift to the hotels in downtown Beaufort if it’s during open hours. 👍. The view is great and the vibe of the whole area around the marina is pretty chill. 10/10 will be back.

by Debbie C. on Sep 12, 2023
I would give more than 5 stars if I could. I can't say enough good things about them. Fabulous restaurant on premises, convenient to shopping, loner vehicle... Tom and all his staff were accommodating even when we changed our plans several times (as can happen while cruising). Highly recommend stopping there.

Absolutely fabulous location. Dinner at dockside Hass to be experienced. Staff at Lady’s Island Marina or Five Star. I will be back!

The stay was great. Everyone was very accomodating. The only drawback was that there was no gas at the marina.

by Rosemary B. - Verified user on Aug 20, 2023
We had booked a hotel in downtown Beaufort and the downtown marina was fully booked. We booked and stayed at Lady's Island. Tom, the owner, came down with a cart and helped us unload our boat. Then he loaded our belongings into his truck and drove us over to our motel. He then, picked us up the next morning and drove us back to the marina. Above and beyond exceptional service!!! They also, moved us to a more desirable slip. Very accommodating!!!!

The staff was very cordial and accommodating. They even provided transportation to the Beaufort downtown area.

great crew! Right there at the dock and waiting for me!

by Sally M. - Verified user on Jun 25, 2023
Wonderful small marina. They have bikes and a courtesy car. Aaron and Jack were very helpful getting us docked. Aaron went above and beyond when our dinghy stalled out in the ICW during a day trip to downtown Beaufort. He came out in the pumpout boat & towed us back to the marina. Then he helped us diagnose & fix the problem. Super nice guy! We love this Marina!

Great marina for quick visit to Beaufort. Good Wi-Fi on our dock, clean bathhouse/laundry facility, $2.50 to dry- free to wash, courtesy car for quick trip to Publix with use of sign up sheet, bikes are in good condition and very helpful marina staff/owner. Was nice to have restaurant within walking distance. There is a day dock for dinghy’s just across the bridge that we noticed while riding our bikes in town.

by Michael B. - Verified user on Jun 18, 2023
This is one of the very best marinas we have ever stayed at. Great welcoming email before arrival providing arrival instructions, tides/currents and exact slip assignment. Aaron and Jack were exceptional dockhands assisting us upon arrival. Excellent shower and restroom facilities. Dockside Restaurant (next door) was excellent and convenient (Aaron offered to make us a reservation). We took advantage of the pump out boat that came to us slipside. Marina is located in good water just 1/2 mile off the ICW in a very quiet no wake zone. Easy dinghy ride to shopping and bars/restaurants in downtown Beaufort.

by Elton K. - Verified user on Jun 11, 2023
Very comfortable stay. Was a little concerned about the current and depth in a small creek, but turned out to be a non issue (I carry 4.5’ draft). The docks are floating and are well maintained. The bathrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. There is a courtesy pick-up available, and many stores around to do shopping … even went to the West Marine, but hard pressed to make it back in the allotted 1 hour. The walk into town was about 30-40minutes, so not an issue. Lots of shops and restaurants there. Aaron, the dock master, was very helpful and provided lots of great tips and information.

by Michael K. - Verified user on Jun 05, 2023
Great stay, just the type of marina we look for.

Quiet, quaint marina with great amenities including courtesy car and bikes, clean laundry and shower, pump out boat comes to your slip, and great wi-fi. Restaurant, canvas shop, and salon on site. Close to everything. Dock master very helpful. Planned for 3 nights, stayed for 9, and hated to leave.

Quiet place. Nice people. Loaner car is a real bonus. Great neighborhood for taking walks. 2 bathrooms/showers can get full.

by Karen H. - Verified user on May 02, 2023
Our stay was great. We made reservations for and paid for 2 nights due to the forecast not being favorable. We woke up the next morning and the forecast had changed, so we were able to leave. We asked for a refund of our second night and the dock hand and manager said the owner wouldn’t allow that but he would give us a credit for our next stay. That is unacceptable for boaters. Boaters travel with favorable weather. We’ve always enjoyed our stays here and would have given them a better rating if this had not happened.
Marina Response:
I think I mentioned this before but for one thing you could've talked about the dinner reservations we made for you, on short notice - getting you seated at a very busy place. You might also understand that when you book a reservation, you're taking space from a fellow boater - someone we've had to decline. Marina's are very similar to hotels - we rely upon our clients to honor their reservations. We are very lenient when it comes to a failure to appear when it comes to extremely foul weather or motor problems. We've also extended more boats than we can count, who limped into our marina and needed to get repairs - added to that, we go out of our way to find mechanics, electricians, etc., to aide in that effort. So next time you want to leave because suddenly the weather is better than you expected, consider the above. We're in the business of serving people but we are in a "business".

Fantastic! AAron was extemely helpful and considerate, I would definately use this marina again

by Hal G. - Verified user on Apr 02, 2023
Aaron the dockmaster could not have been more accomodating! The resturant was great! Courtesy car! Marine supply store accross the street. Heads/showers clean. Canvas shop on premises. A little shallow at low tide getting down the canal but all you need to do is pay attention. Great protection from the wind. Right off the ICW.

by Lorin L. - Verified user on Mar 25, 2023
One of the best experiences at any Marina. Once we were approaching, Aaron texted very detailed instructions concerning wind, tides, slip location and which side to tie up with. Made it very easy.

by Scott H. - Verified user on Feb 01, 2023
This Marina is incredible, it not only reminds me of the islands but is well run and absolute a pleasure to do business with. This is one of our favorite places to stay. Tom the owner is fantastic and surrounds himself with great workers.

by Roland F. - Verified user on Dec 13, 2022
Great marina, Tom is the owner super guy. Easy in and easy out. Nice facilities and great floating docks.

by Dennis P. - Verified user on Dec 02, 2022
We stopped here on the way down the East Coast. Tom and the staff here really worked to accommodate us and make our stay comfortable. We arrived early and Tom called a few slip owners to find an open spot. The laundry, bathroom and showers facilities are well kept and convenient. The use of a courtesy car is an absolute positive for cruising boaters. Beaufort is a short cab ride away and is a very friendly and enjoyable town. We would definitely come back.

by Pam G. - Verified user on Nov 29, 2022
Great location for provisioning! Easy walk to gas station, a bit further to a dollar store and grocery. 2 washers and 2 dryers, 3 showers, other boaters quite friendly.

by Paul M. - Verified user on Nov 28, 2022
Stopped in for one night and decided to stay for a few weeks. Nice marina just off the ICW so has few wakes and those that do come by are smaller boats. Met many who have become firm longer term dockers after their firs experience.

Best marina on the icw. Professional and competent crew, outstanding support services nearby and a free loaner car, and protected from the weather. A must stop !

by April S. - Verified user on Oct 31, 2022
Wonderful place with a great vibe and terrific people!\n\nThey have a courtesy car which is a real treat these days and they are super Dog friendly! \n\nWe 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 Janet S. - Verified user on Oct 27, 2022
Awesome stop - will return! Aaron the dock master welcomed us with detailed instructions and professional tie up. We loved the climate controlled laundry and sparkling clean showers. The marina made us VIP reservations at a great restaurant next door “Dockside”. The fish (swordfish and salmon) was exceptional as were the fresh steamed green beans and carrots, and low country corn bread served with herb butter with the meal. We used the loaner car for 45 min to provision at Publix (.5 mi). All was exceptional. Looking forward to returning soon! This marina is run as if the owners were there themselves! MV Obsession

We had a fabulous stay at Lady’s Island Marina. The docks are clean and neat, the restaurant at the top of the docks was great, and Tom is the most personable and knowledgeable person you will ever meet. We walked over the swing bridge into town and it is completely charming. We will definitely be staying here again.

Highly recommend it. Very helpful staff & great location. Use loaner bikes or your dinghy to go downtown Beaufort - no parking problems. There is a courtesy car - Publix, Walmart & West Marine are close. Stay for a while, you will get hooked on the magnificent sunsets

Great marina and better dock master! He help us find repair mechanic, reached out in advance with slip assignment, very helpful with lines and reached out to us as we left.

by Tanya D. - Verified user on Jun 06, 2022
We signed up for a week but stayed an extra day. We found the marina nice and quaint, the owner (Tom) and his staff (Aaron & Jack) delightful. One of the reasons we picked this marina is because they provide a loaner vehicle (though we borrowed it only once). We will be back. Thank you.

by CJ H. - Verified user on May 12, 2022
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.

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 Teresa S. - Verified user 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.

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 Chuck H. 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 Michael H. 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

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 Mike H. - Verified user 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!

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.

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 Athens, GA

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.

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 Mike Z. - Verified user 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.

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.
Marina Response:
Just one night, yet you took the time to write us a positive review! Thank you and Happy Holidays! Tom

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.

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!
Marina Response:
It was easy to return and ensure a safe arrival. Thank you for your kind words. Look forward to your return. Tom

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.
Marina Response:
Come back! Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Glad you had a positive experience. Tom

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!!
Marina Response:
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

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 ......
Marina Response:
You two were awesome. Next time we've got to dock you a little closer! Tom

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!
Marina Response:
Thank you, Chance. You and your wife were wonderful to have at the marina and I look forward to your return.

by Paula H. - Verified user 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!

Marina Response:
That was so kind of you to take the time to review the marina. Truly look forward to your return. Tom

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.
Marina Response:
Thanks so much, Steadfast - it was great to see you!

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.

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!

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 Geoff & Jenni M. 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 Jeffrey G. - Verified user 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.

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 John L. 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 bob l. 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 Larry M. 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. This marina.............. 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. "flight Deck "
