We told the Dockmaster we. We're inexperienced with currents when he gave us instructions for coming into the Marina and had advised there were strong currents. He proceeded to direct us to a slip and sent a young man to the dock to meet us. The current grabbed us and pushed us into two other boats causing damage to our boat. I begged the dockhand to help us or to find someone who could and he responded there wasn't anyone who could help. Apparently, he was only there, waiting to catch a line. Two. Others came over and advised us to stop and wait for slack tide and then move the boat. We hired a resident boater to move our boat to a face dock. Hmm. If a face dock had been offered in the beginning this whole thing would have been avoided! Later heard this Marina has a reputation of being called "Crash"! The resident boater said he helps others 2-3 times a week who have the same experience. Good to know--too late!
Nice place good people, bathrooms cleaned daily, laundry could have hot water (that would make it better). Overall , very good.

The Harborage at Ashley Marina is a large, professionally managed marina capable of accommodating vessels up to 150 feet in length. The marina consists of approximately 230 wet slips and is located in historic downtown Charleston. Among Ashley Marina's amenities is a courtesy shuttle to take transients to and from many of downtown Charleston's most popular attractions.
Since being converted, the marina has gone through many positive changes. All of the docks have been renovated with Ipe, electrical service has been upgraded to provide both 30 & 50 amp service to all slips in the marina, and the transient dock has 100 amp single and three phase electric available. The dock house has been completely rebuilt and is now a beautiful building for owners and tenants to enjoy while also serving as a headquarters for the dockmaster and dockhands. Our courtesy shuttle operates on demand within normal business hours, and runs anywhere within the downtown Charleston peninsula and hotels on the Ashley River. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance and groceries within 2 miles. Our offseason hours are from 8:00 AM through 6:00 PM and peak season from 8:00 AM through 8:00 PM.
