CHRM has been great at helping us settle into life in Charleston. After spending many years out cruising the world we are happy to stop at this marina. Jacque Leto office manager has been a great help.
THANKS S/Y HALFMOON

We stayed 24-25OCT2014. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had no problems with our transient dockage fee (it was charged by the boat foot not dock foot). They even provided us with discount coupons for the Yorktown exhibit. Our interent access worked great. The shower facilities are a bit tight, but workable. We arrived very early from an offshore passage, and it was definitely convenient that this marina is open 24hrs.

We decided to stop here because it was easy access to get off and on the ICW. Free trolley to Charleston and hotel amenities available to transients (pool, whirlpool, bar etc. ). Great hospitality with the Marina staff, in particular Jacque in the office and Michael Santelli on the docks. We were met with three dock hands as we approached. Gas discounts for BoatUS members.
Captain: Vanclisg, Merritt Island Florida (110)
Jacque in the office went out of her way to help us get a slip for the weekend, and Todd and Michael did a great job helping us get into our slip fighting a strong current pushing us crosswise. Showers and bathroooms are very clean and floating concrete floating docks are great.
Captain: Kevin Nosbisch, Minneapolis, MN (10)
Stopped by for gas, shower and lunch. Received very friendly and helpful service from staff. Michael Santelli took great care of us. We will always stop here on or trips. Thanks Michael.

2014: Back in the spring and then again in the fall – it’s one of our favorite stops. Charleston is such a terrific city and this is a great location to stay while visiting. The staff is definitely trained in customer service. Dockhand Alex was expert at helping us pull in, Butch let us know he was keeping a watch over us each night, Jacque was always friendly and helpful in the office, Harlan delivered our mail to the boat, and Todd checked in to make sure we were happy. It feels like coming home! Thanks, Kelley for running such a great team.

Stayed here for 4 nights to ride out some stormy cold weather. Great staff, clean facilities, and good floating docks. Free shuttle stops within 4 blocks of a Harris Teeter in Charlseton.
Captain: Dale H+, Grand Island, NE (240)
We pulled in for a couple day layover – chose Charleston Harbor with AC recomendation. Dock hands were professional and courteous – the current ‘matters’ and we appreciated the assistance. We were ahead of ‘season’ so water taxi not operating – however appreciated the resort shuttle to groceries and regular round trips to Charleston City. On-Premise FishHouse restaurant and bar good – however, Charleston is noted for exceptional eateries so has tough competition. Restrooms & Showers were clean – however the 4 shower rooms are minimal for marina this size. All staff were friendly – really appreciate the dockside pumpout. We will definitely stop if passing thru here again.

On our first visit, We left the boat here for almost a month while traveling in Europe.The staff kept a close eye on the boat while we were gone and even arranged to have our bottom cleaned by a diver before we got back.It is exposed and you can get some very strong winds and seas here. However the marina itself is well protected.

While in route off shore from Miami to Newport we were looking for a place in Charleston to ride out a cold front for a day or two……however, all the marinas where we had friends give us recommendations were booked due to the Art Festival. Charleston Harbor Marina had one spot remaining and we grabbed it thinking it was a little out of the way, but it was a safe spot. Unexpectedly, downtown Charleston turned out to be a quick ferry ride (or an Uber ride) away. It was a quick and easy commute. The ferry drops you off in the middle of downtown…..which was super convenient. The marina was safe, well attended, and super focused on customer service. We loved that it was part of a resort, off the beaten track, yet close to all of the activity of downtown Charleston. The current was ripping, as it is at every marina in Charleston; however, as long as you are aware, adjustments can be made. Overall, this was a place I’d highly recommend and we will definitely return. In fact, instead of it being the alternative choice, it will now be the preferred choice.
Captain: B Carey+, Lakeland (627)
We stayed here for a month to visit friends in the Charleston area and get a little boat work done. (Luther marine is highly recommeded! He did excellent work, on time, at excellent prices). The Charleston North Sails people were very unreliable however. But…. back to the marina. The staff was super helpful and accomodating. We were at first on a side tie to an outside dock which was subject to a lot of wake. We requested an inner slip and after several days were moved in. The facilites are excellent. Great pool! Great free shuttle into downtown Charleston. Also, nice to have the water taxi stop right at the marina. We were quite happy here.
