There is so much fun to be had at this mid-island hub that the owners have decided to call this marina “Broad Creek Marina Adventures.” You can spend the whole day in this one spot.
Start off with an adrenaline tour through the trees on eight interconnected ziplines. You can mix it up with a tree-top aerial adventure that features six challenge courses for all abilities, all geared for the whole family as young as five. If you need more in-the-air adventure, don’t miss a soaring parasail ride over Calibogue Sound. Talk about Lowcountry highs!
Now you can relax on a 90-minute guided dolphin watching boat tour aboard two delightful boats, the “Island Queen” and the “SS Pelican”. Live music is available on the “Island Queen” Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m. during the summer and fall.
For the afternoon, charter a fishing boat or rent a boat to explore the waterways around Hilton Head. You can also try one of Hilton Head’s newest adventures with Island Skiff Adventure Tours – a CraigCat©, a two seat, down-low compact power catamaran that reaches speeds up to 30 miles an hour!
It is also here that you will find the public passenger ferry service to Daufuskie Island aboard Daufuskie Difference’s “Delta Lady”, a replica of an authentic 1850s paddle wheeler. Daufuskie is the magical place where you can experience the mystique of a remote Sea Island Gullah culture, including guided history tours, golf cart rentals, and an interpretive plantation at the Bloody Point Lighthouse. Daufuskie Difference also runs the 35-passenger “Silver Dew” for fast ferry service to Savannah’s Historic District for a day of shopping and sightseeing.
In the evening, you can book a sunset cocktail cruise. During the summer, get an upfront seat for the Island’s Tuesday night fireworks spectacle from the marina’s dock, its various boat cruises, or the treetop towers on its zipline course.
In addition to two restaurants, the marina itself features 46 in-water slips as well as covered dry storage. It offers the full range of marina services, including a maintenance and repair shop, fuel and pump out services, electricity, Wi-Fi as well as laundry and shower facilities.
The marina is located on Broad Creek mid-Island off Marshland Road at 18 Simmons Road, between Mathews Drive and the Cross Island Parkway. There is ample parking and no gate fees. For more information about the marina, call the Dock Master at (843) 681-3625.
