Reviews for Leland Oil Company
Nice place to visit, 2017-06-21
Captain: , jacksonville, FL (340)

You should stop here. Everybody was friendly, and food at the only restaurant was very good and reasonable. Haskell at the marina was helpfuld and knowledgeable, and the fuel price was lower than I have paid on the entire trip. Dock and power were fine.

Pleasantly surprised, 2017-04-24
Captain: , Mystic, CT (80)

Friendly and helpful. The entrance to Jeremy Creek had been dredged last year and that was not a problem making our way to the floating dock at Leland Oil Company. Unfortunately we were here on a Sunday and Monday and the local popular restaurant is closed. However, we drove (borrowed a car) to the Diner and it was mighty good. Also stopped at the seafood store and got fresh fresh shrimp and crab dip. I would definitely stop here again.

Quaint town, 2017-04-11
Captain: , YORKTOWN, VA (383)

This is a stop for people who want to visit a nice seafood port. Great place to buy seafood. Make sure you visit the old Episcopalian church next to the dock. Nothing fancy here. But everything you need for a comfortable and interesting overnight.

Great stop and beautiful town, 2017-01-17
Captain: , Oriental NC (40)

We stopped for the night in November and were impressed by the beautiful surroundings and wonderfully historic and picturesque town that surrounds the marina. I needed some help with a diesel fuel filter leak and one of the local shrimp boat captains (Jimmy Storey) came aboard and fixed the problem. He not only wouldn't take any money for his help, but he went back to his boat and brought us two bowls of venison stew that he had just prepared for his crew. Southern hospitality just doesn't get any better than that! We'll definitely be back!

Quiet Place to Stop, 2016-12-13
Captain: , Philadelphia, Pa. (201)

We stopped here going south to Fla. Nice floating docks parallel to the current made docking very easy. Paskell the dock master was very good and friendly making you feel welcomed. Only one bathroom but the place is small so it fit.

Simple but workable, 2016-11-26
Captain: , Westport CT (484)

Stopped in at Leland on 11/16...pushing to make miles south...not near anything we called and they went out of their way to make room for us. Came in just after sunset and very helpful dock staff.

Not much here but new dock, power worked and minimalist head. Local seafood resturant was closed (Thurs.-Sat only).

Followed the shrimp boats out before sunrise.

Would stop again.

Great Place, 2016-08-12
Captain: , Sault Sainte Marie, MI (54)

Everyone here is very friendly and helpful. Wifi signal is a little weak on the dock but it works. Did not use the restrooms or showers.
Short walk to town that has a few quaint shops and the seafood restaurant.
One thing not to miss is Carolina Seafoods. Fresh seafood ( the shrimp boats drive right past the dock) that is out of this world. Scallops and shrimp (the jumbo, shell on) were fantastic. Also try their shrimp and crab dip. You will not be sorry.

Good and easy to get to, 2016-07-08
Captain: , San Francisco (155)

They answered the radio call right away. The diesel price was negotiated right on the spot for estimated 150 gals. $2.10 at first, then lowered to $2.05. Will the price be the same for the next guy?
Dock space for $1.50/ft. Lots of fishing boats here, but quiet, no wakes.

Neat Little Town; Marina Needs Work, 2016-05-05
Captain: , Solomons, MD (1025)

McClellanville has a wonderful little "southern seafood" restaurant with great food and excellent service. Surprisingly, it also has a small but very informative museum (open Thursday, Friday, Saturday). Though the dockhands were great, the marina itself needs serious updating, from the docks themselves to the run-down restrooms.

wonderful spot, 2016-04-09
Captain: , Wilmington NC (400)

Rutledge and Paschal are as friendly as can be. Awesome local seafood a few blocks away, cooked or raw. Safe and easy access to ICW.

good fuel stop, 2016-04-04
Captain: , Louisville, KY (347)

channel was dredged recently. 12 feet minimum at half tide. diesel $2.00/gal, non-ethanol gas $2.40 on 4 April. Not much in the area, but an ok overnight place.

Great Place To Stop, 2015-12-28
Captain: , Charleston (20)

We were riding the ICW from Charleston. Stopped for lunch and a potty break. Plenty of sun on a runabout, but no head. The dock hands helped with the lines, took our party to a great local restaurant for lunch, came back and picked us up after we ate, and only charged me $10 for 3.5 hours of dock time. I was glad to tip $10 for the care and consideration they gave us. The restaurant was well beyond the distance my wife could walk. Quiet little town in "Real South Carolina".

local friendly REAL town, 2015-12-17
Captain: , Charleston south carolina (90)

It's a shallow entrance, Normal REAL kind of place, great seafood, we were out of butter and they even grabed some for us , THe docks were well maintained and the staff very helpful, This is a working dock so have to cut them a little slack on the state of the bathrooms and showers.

Meets the need, 2015-12-06
Captain: , Rock Hall, MD (559)

The marina has excellent floating docks. The bathroom/shower is serviceable and clean but a little run down. The entry is a little tricky. We came in about 1.5 hours before high tide. Saw just under 9' at the mouth of Jeremy Creek. Kept to the right just off the docks and consistently had 11'+. Had 10.6' when we tied up. The dokmaster said they will be dredging next month.

Fine stop for a night, 2015-11-24
Captain: , Hingham, MA (1079)

We stopped here for a night because it was easier then anchoring out and having to find a spot to bring the dog (nothing around in swamp country). The dock here is fine, but we chose not to use the bathroom (a bit run-down).
The entrance is very shallow - must be timed with the tides. The locals advised to stay closer to the docks at the entrance, as the center is mud at low tide.
Cute little area - I recommend walking over and getting some fresh-off-the-boat shrimp.

Friendly Marina - Nice area, 2015-10-26
Captain: , Mystic CT (130)

Nothing fancy but well worth a visit

Yep, your in the country..., 2015-08-15
Captain: , Honolulu (712)

Stopped 7/20/15, $60 for a 36' boat. Rustic facility in an old fishing town. The place is a little run down, but quaint at the same time. As mentioned inn other posts, watch your depth and stay close to the docks. Restaurant was closed that night, but the fresh fish market had some great prices on shrimp. An early morning walk around the old town and its majestic oak trees made it worthwhile.

A must stop, 2015-05-12
Captain: , Little River SC (586)

Quiet stop in a small fishing village. Floating aluminum docks. The facilities are adequate. The town area is a gem. The beautiful old oak trees that cnaopy the streets are breattaking. A great restaurant within walking distance with fresh seafood off the docks. Skinny water, stick to within a boat lenght away from docks on the starboard side coming in. The fisherman are great to talk to and enjoy small town USA.

Charming place, 2015-04-21
Captain: , Atlanta (770)

We really enjoy smaller places, so this was great for us. Friendly staff, nice floating docks. Charming town great for walking - beautiful houses. We happened to be in soft-shell crab season, and went to watch the crab processing factory where they had hundreds of crabs in moulting process which they observed on a 24/7 basis until they shed their skins. Amenities were lacking - only one bathroom, far from restaurants, stores, but we were not looking for them, so didn't matter as much.

Friendly Service/ Good Overnight, 2015-04-12
Captain: , Wicomico Creek, MD (494)

Skinny water at low tide. Quiet, floating docks but no pumpout. Dock personnel very helpful.

Good Fuel Stop, 2015-02-20
Captain: , Williamsburg, VA (745)

We touched bottom going into the creek at low tide. (4 foot draft) Once inside pleanty of water. There is quite a large shrimp fleet on the creek. Fuel price was pretty good for the time. Very rustic. Bathrooms definitely a working yard. Basic stop if you need fuel and/or need a safe place to tie up overnight.

A great stop in a small funky fishing village, 2014-11-29
Captain: , Fort Lauderdale (1332)

Although Jeremy Creek is shallow in the approach and alongside, we found our stop at Leland Marine in McClellanville a highlight of our ICW trip this year. The town has only about 400 residents, and they all seem to know one another. There may be 400 dogs too, and in our experience they're all friendly!

This is a family-owned marine fuel business that expanded a few years ago by adding a big floating dock with good power and fast wifi, and it's attracting more and more yachts of moderate draft. The dockhands and locals on the pier are among the friendliest people we've met along the ICW, and we bought wonderful "fresh off the boat" local shrimp at the little seafood market in the village.

There's a single restaurant in town but we didn't try it. Coudn't wait to get into the local shrimp for dinner.

A stop here is definitely no resort experience, but if you enjoy local color and friendly people, it makes a really good stop. You'll be sharing the dock with lots of local fishing boats. And boatyard dogs.

Cute town and Marina, 2014-11-19
Captain: , Rowayton, CT (88)

Fun place to stop. Interesting homes and trees on walk into town. Helpful staff. Decent docks. Laundry facilities a bit run down.

Quiet place., 2014-08-24
Captain: , Pensacola, FL (532)

We were here 5/23/2014 for one stormy night (twisters in area). felt very secure to old docks. Rutledge, marina manager, very helpful and friendly. Gas was $4.25/gal., I was expecting a better price as I passed <$4 on way here. Oh well, price not on pumps, just volume. Number of dogs not on leads, so be careful walking your pooch.

Our Second Visit, 2014-07-20
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (241)

Not for Marina Queens. Shore facilities barely adequate. Good authentic workboat atmosphere. Tie up with shrimp boats & an oyster dredge on nice aluminum floating docks with water & 30/50 Amp power. Dockmaster, Duane, is friendly & helpful - "Glad to have you" is his VHF response to a dockage query.
Were here last May 2-3. Stayed over for their annual Shrimp Festival which included a blessing of the fleet, food and music in the park and arts and crafts with a world class grass basket weaver. We enjoyed walking the town under shade canopies of live oak laden with Spanish moss. They have a 1,000+ year old live oak with 30' circumference in the Park. Main reason we returned was the Pawleys Island Pecan Pie at Graham's
Navigation: we didn't cut corner on entry to channel & stayed mid channel, saw 13 to 10' depths. Tide was at +5.0' MLLW. At the dock we have 6.8' at +1.8' MLLW as I write.
Docking Tip: Prior to docking, have your fenders set at just off water level as bumper strip on docks is wood.
Stop in for a real Low Country experience. See a vestige of the Old South that is quickly disappearing.

Good place to chill, 2014-07-13
Captain: , San Diego (300)

Stopped here on the way north. Right off the ICW 1.50 a foot 3.90 for fuel! Cool little town beautiful homes w moss covered trees. Dollar general about 2 miles away for most groceries. 4 feet underneith at low tide stay to the north on the turn in!

Bypass this little village at your loss., 2014-06-14
Captain: , Beaufort, NC (282)

Leland Oil has a nice floating face dock that is easy in and out right off the ICW. Best of all is the villiage. Nice tree lined canopy streets for walking and/or riding your bikes. These little places will not last forever so catch it while you can. Buy seafood right off the boats.

Works in a pinch, 2014-05-29
Captain: , Bourne, Ma (230)

This is definately working marina meaning many fishing and shrimp boats. It is also the only marina situated between Charleston and Georgetown, about 25 miles South of Georgetown. Easy access as long as you follow entry instructions and stay well to the right. Easy dockage and helpful dock hands. Shower with minimal water spray, it was hot but skimpy. As I said a good stop if you do not want to anchor.

nice village, 2014-04-28
Captain: , Newark DE (110)

The marina prices are reasonable with free laundry, however the washer takes almost two hours to do one load. Friendly and helpful staff. Fresh seafood is readily available at Carolina Seafood Company which is a very short walk from the marina. The village is one of the prettiest we've ever visited. Don't miss eating at TW Graham's. the food is great.

Beautiful Spot, 2014-04-06
Captain: , mcclellanville (15)

Great Atmosphere/ fun to hang with locals under the oak tree! Dog Friendly too

best price on diesel, 2014-03-24
Captain: , Sneeds Ferry NC. (20)

good fuel prices 4.00 gal nice folks

nice locals, incredible hospitality, 2013-12-03
Captain: , Santa Cruz, CA (150)

Facing dock was packet so was a bit difficult to get tied up, but wowing the locals from the dock invited us and other boaters over for Thanksgiving dinner. No joke! Pretty cool

Unique Marina in Shrimping Town, 2013-11-26
Captain: , Vandemere NC (418)

Stopped over 11/21/2013 before heading into Charleston. We read the reviews but like the small unpretentious marinas. We found the Leland Marina to be a unique, friendly and extremely helpful stopover. Said they woul like to have us by vhf, lots of help docking on new face dock. Easy access with some shoaling at entrance but good direction. Staff and other visitors were great, stood around talking for quite awhile. Rene was fun, with lots of stories. Extremely helpful an accomodating staff. McClellansville is a lovely town, and Carolina Seafood a great resource, purchased some great fresh shrimp and oysters. If you stop be sure to have dinner at Graham's. If your looking for new immaculate facility, if you may not like it here. If you want a unique experience a great town to walk around an a friendly marina for a good night stop here.

No frills, but a great little marina in a great little town, 2013-11-25
Captain: , Annapolis (795)

This is a place to dock your boat, maybe re-fuel, and stretch your legs. Not much else here, but it doesn't pretend to offer more. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Picturesque southern town with many shrimp boats. I wholeheartedly recommend it, unless you are looking for something posh or hotel-like.

Dump. Bad choice, 2013-10-19
Captain: , Greenwich Ct. (50)

Horrible at best. Charges whatever he wants. Bug infested with no services and 5 feet at low tide.

A real slice of life, 2013-10-17
Captain: , baltimore md (644)

We called ahead about coming in for a night and their response was we would be glade to have you. I liked that. New aluminum floating docks with good power and water. We were told to stay to starboard on the way in. No depth issues leaving at low tide. Set your fenders low for side tie docking. Don't miss T.W. Grahams restaurant.

Most Rustic on ICW?, 2013-08-22
Captain: , Rochester, NY (493)

I've gotta nominate this place for Most Rustic on the ICW!

Smallest combination head/shower I've ever seen. Pretty sure it hadn't been cleaned in a long long time.

As far as we could see there were no other ammenities whatsoever.

It is what it is. It doesn't really pretend to be a marina and it does have fuel.

If you're headed to Charleston, this is the last fuel for many a mile.

If you have plenty of fuel though, you might want to stop just to be able to say you were there and cast your vote for Most Rustic!

very accommodating , 2013-05-21
Captain: , Wrightsville Beach NC (22)

We arrived late one night after a long ride and the grandson of the founder ( Bainbridge ?)met us at the fuel dock and hooked us up with a full tank. Nice dock, with no traffic, it was honestly the best sleep I had in a week.

Good In-Between Stop, 2013-04-29
Captain: , Kinsale (130)

We arrived very late after trying unsuccessfully to anchor in 5 Fathom Creek. Easy tie up on new floating face dock and quiet night. Don't approach in low tide.

Any OLd Port in a Storm, 2013-04-22
Captain: , Hollywood, MD (271)

Had fuel filter problems after a rough ride across the Charleston Harbor. Leland Oil at McClellanville, SC was there and more than helpful to do whatever we needed. This is a quiet little town with friendly people and a seafood industry that seems to be the center of the economy. There are new docks at the marina and the fuel price isn't bad. Thanks for your help.

Good safe spot, 2013-01-22
Captain: , Palm Coast, Florida (785)

New floating dock. Use fenders. Low water pressure for showers. Laundry took one hour to wash dryer 40 minutes. Wifi at the end of the dock is spotty. Use cell phone to contact marina -- no one around. I stayed January 17th & 18th waiting for a strong cold front to pass. Very safe spot with no alternatives for 25 miles north or south. Nothing around but the seafood restaurant. I was told by the marina to favor the red side of the channel after entering Jeremy Creek. I had no problems with 5 1/2 ft draft. Another sailboat drawing 6 ft found the mud straying too far to the green side but powered out and had no problems on the red side.

Secret great marina, 2012-11-21
Captain: , Herrington Harbour, MD (680)

nov 21st 2012
Long good docks with wood fronts. Easy to stop and deep water.
Did not need the bathrooms, so did not see them. They were near.
Town tiny, but one could buy freash fish at the fish market.
Would stop again. Terrific wifi on your boat.

Lovely Walking Town, Nice Dock, 2012-11-20
Captain: , Falmouth Maine (120)

Leland Oil has a nice, new aluminum dock. Fuel. Bathroom facilities are being updated. We used the bathroom in an apartment over the building at shore. Bring your own TP. McClellanville is a wonderful little fishing village and a great place to walk. Take a right as you leave the marina on foot and go to the park to see a 1000 year old deer oak tree. Take a left as you leave and go to the fish market down by the shrimp boats. This was one of our favorite stops. Quiet and peaceful.

Quiet dockage and beautiful little town., 2012-11-16
Captain: , Ophelia, VA (849)

We have stayed here several times over the last 5 years. This year the owner replaced the old rikety fixed dock with a new floating dock. It is now much safer to get off the boat. This is a great little town and a trip back in time. A good place to get off the boat and explore. Great if you have bicycles on board. You can often purchase shrimp from one of the shrimp boats that dock at the end of the dock at Lelands, or from the seafood vendor, and have a shrimp pig-out! There is a great restaurant in town, T. W. Wrights. Open Thurs. - Sat. Thursday night was Cantina Night with great Mexican food. Look for the 1,000 year old Deerhart Oak Tree on the way there. The small unisex shower and bathroom is undergoing renovation when we were there in Nov. 2012.

Not s Marina yet, 2012-10-30
Captain: , Southport, NC (716)

We arrived with a NW 20-25 kt wind. No shelter was at the dock. A crew of three met us and they were very friendly. The wind pinned us to the dock so hard it made a scratch on our hull. I had the fenders too far aft, so the wind pushed the bow in. Nothing could be done. It wouldnt have been a problem but the new dock doesnt have a rubber protector running down the side, its just a piece of wood with a sharp edge. No bathrooms, no showers and just about nothing else. Basically its a new aluminum dock in the middle of nowhere. The price is way over what the norm would be. The restuarant that we were looking forward to eating at was closed on monday's. We walked to the local seafood market and bought some fresh shrimp and cooked out. Basically Leland is not a marina, but an overpriced dock. Mcclellanville is a beuatiful little town and we wish we could have seen more. I think Leland is in the process of updating things, so it's worth a try maybe later. The internet signal was only just two bars and slow. When you go there just be prepared and dont expect many creature comforts.

Good Shelter with a northerly, 2012-10-29
Captain: , London, UK (339)

We sheltered here for three nights whilst Hurricane Sandy went through. Whilst we had nothing over 40k the marina provided very good shelter and we were very comfortable alongside the new floating dock. Work has started on building new shower/toilet facilities and the laundry is in the process of being upgraded. Large industrial machines get the load done in one hit! Friendly, helpful staff make this a super stay. If going for a walk it's best to be 'Deeted' up to the eyeballs and wear long sleeves and long trousers. The mozzie population is on a permanent feeding frenzy at this location. Dont let this put you off - stopping here is a must. Good restaurant within walking distance, museum, many historic houses and dont forget the 1,000 year old Stag Horn oak tree.

New floating docks , 2012-10-14
Captain: , Epilogue (326)

2012 10 14: visited Leland Marine for first time in 2 years. They have new aluminum floating docks...huge improvement. About $1.25/ft + electricity. Good place to weather a storm. I spoke with Rutledge Leland III and he says they will improve showers and laundry next. Very nice stop...short walk to beautiful, tree shaded, unspoiled village. Good food at TW Graham's.

Reasonable Fuel Stop, 2012-10-10
Captain: , Annapolis (434)

We were running low on fuel so pulled in here. Readily accessible. No problem with depth at Jeremy Creek entrance at half tide. The dock hand was pleasat and helpful and Sullivan, the three legged dock dog, was there to greet us. Nice floating docks. The diesel price started at $4.25 but when I whined they dropped it to $4.15.

Small marina with basic services, 2012-07-20
Captain: , Charleston, SC (422)

Staff were great...offered to take us shopping or to a restaurant. Single unisex bath, not air conditioned. Very low tide, just stay in the middle. Call ahead and staff will meet you. Great seafood market next door.

Small Local Marina, 2012-07-16
Captain: , Little River, SC (443)

Real friendly low country folks in a little marina with helpful staff. The shower/head is marginal but cool after a hot day on the waterway. This is the only marina between Charleston and Georgetown. They have new aluminum floating docks.

Should be a buck a foot at most, 2012-06-19
Captain: , Windy (170)

This is a solid dock to tie up on in a wonder location. That's it. It is not a marina -- there is no bath to speak of (dirty 6' ceiling with no lights or TP). I came in with wind blowing and was happy to tie up. The gentleman manging the place was very pleasant and it was a great place to spend 20 hours while the wind blew itself out. Its just a shame that eveyone on the water is chargin so much these days. This place certainly doesn't justify the $1.50 or so that they are charging. Otherwise it would be a regular stop. The creek is very pretty, dolphins feeding, turtles swimming by, seafood in town, etc.

I wonder if anyone ever anchors along the creek?

Great stop, great service, 2012-06-18
Captain: , Wagram, NC (144)

Stopped overnight and was quiet and comfortable. New long face dock where everything works. Easy in and out of the channel. Bring mosquito repellant.

Will recommend and return on our next trip.

A piece of real America , 2012-06-01
Captain: , Muskegon, MI (778)

We stayed last night and what a great stop. As others have said, Dock and Electricity are great, bathroom and shower are tired but clean, T.W. Graham Seafood is awesome. Real home cooked seafood, the fried oysters were the best I have ever had, the tuna was delicious, the shrimp burrito was great, and the Pawleys Island Pie was phenomenal. The dock master was very helpful and full of helpful information. All around, a great little town with a protected dock, Off the ICW.

Protected creek, 2012-05-29
Captain: , Dunedin, FL (7374)

Very secure up Jeremy Creek, stayed just before Beryl came through. Very competitive fuel price, discount for over 100 gals. and discount for cash/check.

Great stop!, 2012-04-30
Captain: , Clearwater, FL (551)

We came in late on a Sunday morning, tied up and wandered off to find lunch. Wound up at T.W. Graham &Co., where we had a wonderful meal. The best fried oysters I've ever had. The marina docks are new, with reliable 30A & 50A power and water. Didn't go into the marina building but I suspect that the earlier reviewers are correct. But the people were wonderful. We stopped in and looked at the old Episcopal Church (1706) and were invited in for a look by the Vicar. If you are looking for a resort atmosphere, don't bother. But if you want a small friendly town and good fried oysters, this is a must.

Great Dock, 2012-04-20
Captain: , punta gorda, fl (1448)

What a great place to visit. McClellanville is charming. Stately huge old oak trees line the streets. T W Graham Restaurant (seafood) was special. And, you can buy fresh shrimp (and other fresh seafood) next to the shrimp dock.

Leland Oil marina has NEW long floating face dock. Very good place to dock. The other amenities are a bit rustic but overall a great place to visit.

Docks are up Jeremy Creek perhaps a half mile off the ICW. We came in about 2 hours before low tide and had seven and one half feet of water at the entrance to the creek and it was deeper once we were into the creek.

New Upgraded Marina, 2012-04-16
Captain: , Lewes, DE (2521)

We came in 30/28/2012 and spent two nights here. Nice new floating docks with new electrical outlets. There is a town museum within walking distance that depicts the local history of rice plantations and the T W Graham restaurant has outstanding seafood. Future plans are to improve the landscape, improve the building, and rehab the fueling house.

Small and quaint, 2012-04-09
Captain: , Miami (71)

We came in on Easter Sunday so no one yo help us tie up, but no problem for wife and myself with NEW floating aluminum docks. Went for a walk into town and met very friendly locals. On Monday we went to Livingstons Seafood for soft shell crabs, wife is in heaven. Nice stop, nice people, and nice change of pace compared to busy Charleston.

good stop for half-way between Charleston, SC and Georgetown, SC, 2012-03-19

Tied up to the new floating docks, and plugged into the 30 amp service. 50 amp is also available. Basic facility. But friendly staff and a welcome rest before heading north' Free WiFi, Bathroom with shower, is a bit tired, but functional. Overall new dock is over 500 feet long. This is a work in process, but so far looks good.

A convenient overnight stop., 2011-12-17

This is a very basic facility but plans are for new docks next year. We had a quiet night and no disturbing wakes. Would stay here again.

The dock master was very helpful in docking. Docks leave a lot to be desired but, they work. Fresh fish, shrimp available in morning.

a marina n the middle of no where, 2011-11-01

Town is great! largest oak trees I have ever seen! No facilites. Docks are fixed and marginal, and of course, overpriced. Nice fish market, fuel expensive. no shopping, marina is rough and overpriced.

Nice stop depending, 2011-10-22

The people here could not have been nicer. Docks are probably typcial of a working fisherman's dock so don't expect anything nice. We got a ride to the dollar general to get bug spray and then walked the small town of huge oak trees and historic homes.

If you have pets please be aware that the 5+ foot tide swing might make it difficult to get your animals ashore at low tide, but we managed OK. We stayed on the floating dock and there was only space for one boat when we arrived so as the earlier post said call ahead.

The creek has plenty of water as we left at dead low and had no problems getting back out to the ICW. ICW was shallow in spots between here and Charleston.

The people we met made this place special. I would stop here again.

Beautiful town, 2011-06-18
Captain: , San Diego, Ca (50)

Delightful small fishing village. Friendly and accommodating folks. Duane (dockmaster) was able to repair our canvas biminy in a few hours. Local restarant (TW Gramham) great food - open for dinner on Thursday-Saturday. Dockage is very limited - call ahead.

Friendly Quaint Town, 2011-04-26
Captain: , Lancaster VA (393)

Limited facilities. Only room for 1 35-45 foot boat at the floating dock when we arrived. A long term boat and some skiffs take up the rest of the floating face dock. Cannot recommend the fixed part of the dock. Beautiful trees and old homes in town, one restaurant only open for dinner Thur, Friday and Saturday. Everone was friendly. Small library close by.

Fixed peers not for dogs at low tide, 2011-03-05
Captain: , Pinnacle, NC, USA (1422)

Our destination was a fine restaurant in Charleston. But we had put in a good day, called the marina to confirm space and turned up Jeremy Creek to the "Marina's" fuel dock. The floating bits were fully occupied by other transients (3) so we were directed to the decrepit fixed dock and ladder mentioned by others. Not a place to be at low water (5' tides here) while trying to convey dogs ashore up a ladder. We were at eye level with oysters on the old pillings. But we managed.

Loved the town, got a priceless picture of Huck Fin and Tom Sawyer up the great oak in the park. Next time we will put in at the town's floating boat ramp and then decide where to spend the night.

OK but limited everything, 2011-02-20
Captain: , Beaufort, NC (531)

Here you will meet some of the nicest folks on the ICW. The marina itself is primative with fixed wooden docks in what could besy be described as "needing a bit of work". At low tide you will have to climb a steep later to reach the ground. Once you get there it is a short walk to downtown. There is a restayrant, closed the day we were there, that has a good reputation. That is about it.

This place has very limited space, no slips, everyone is tied to the face dock. It is more of a working marina than a tourist stop.

A step back in time and a very pleasent walk into town to eat at local places. Marina manager does good canvas repairs for a good price. Low water in spots at dock is only a little over 4'

Basically a dock to tie up two with power., 2010-06-29
Captain: , Gulf Breeze, Fl (6909)

Just a place to hide from a storm. Dock is run down and some sections shallow. may not be room if occupied by shrimp boats

Step back in time, 2010-04-15
Captain: , Newville (488)

Stopped here for fuel once we found out entrance had been dredged. Got fuel & ice, shrimp, a wlak in town, and a ride from the dockmaster to the grocery store down the road. Great stop

Why 5 stars, 2010-01-20

Because even though their are few amenities, it's a step back in time to another era: A giant oak in the front yard with a rubber tire swing hanging from it. A dockmaster who will most likely greet you like he'd been waiting for you particularly. A beautiful one-street village down the road with a delightful small cafe and a terrific restaurant. There is nothing fancy here, but there's charm galore.

Friendly folks cheap fuel, 2009-05-08
Captain: , Miami, fl (3646)

Note: Jeremy Creek has been dredged early 2009, 10' MLW.

A great place to stay, in an area with few marinas. Fixed docks and mostly shrimp boats but the owners are the most friendly people we met on the whole ICW. What a place to get fresh shrimp and the town is lovely.
