Reviews for Sunset Cay Marina

Great Monthly Rate, 2013-10-16
Captain: , Seabrook, TX (250)

We moved our boat down to Sunset Cay from Charleston Maritime Center to leave it for two months in March 2013. The facility is ok. Floating docks, but only a restroom, no showers. The restaurant and bar upstairs are very cool. The sunsets on their deck are great. Shoaling just off of the Folly River channel was a big problem when we arrived. We almost spent the night on the sandbar. When we came back in May, they were dredging, so our departure was smooth. River current and tides can be very tricky going in and out of the marina.

Big changes going on. Seems to be slipping.



Nice place to relax, 2011-11-14
Captain: , Denver NC (329)

This marina is secluded in a good way. It could use some showers, and the see thru floor in the restrooms are neat/weird. The bar upstairs is cool. The slips are teak? whew they look nice. Watch out for the sand bar just to the west of the marina, it's closer than you think!



Second Visit to Sunset cay, 2011-01-26
Captain: , Blacksburg, sc (10)

Nice facility. Bubba was a great help with everything. Visited on 10-15-2010. No Showers, but the rest of the facility was nice. Diane Clark Manages it and is always willing to help with whatever you need. Hope to be back there soon.
