    Nice marina in relaxed location. You have 4 restaurants a short dinghy ride away and one short walking distance. There is one washer/dryer. $1.50 each. Bathrooms/showers relatively clean. Very small. There is a boat rental place here so quite a few small boats in and out. It is a no wake zone. About 80% of boats follow the no wake. Docks are new floating ones and fuel dock is nice. Marina staff helpful. We’ve also anchored in skull creek area which is great too. Easy stop if you want a marina for laundry/power/water.

    Our boat was here on a T-dock for the fall out of Hurricane Dorian, and survived unscathed. However, Skull Creek sees a LOT of traffic and a LOT of tidal current. There is also considerable wind exposure north and south, so if you're not in the core of the marina you will get jostled around considerably.

    The staff were decent, but the marina changed hands recently and much has changed that we were not exposed to.

    There is not much to do in the immediate vicinity without typical HHI memberships which are not included in this marina's fees.

    Wifi out at our T-dock was on the fringe of coverage.

    It is reasonably priced.

    Wonderful marina with deep water and easy access off the ICW. Floating docks and friendly helpful staff. Courtesy car was a god send. Able to go to grocery, drug, and West Marine stores. Great restaurants ( Hudson’s, Boathouse, and Dockside). a close dinghy ride away. Bathrooms clean, washer and dryer, fuel on site. Recommend.

    Stopped for fuel on the late afternoon because we were not going to make it to Beaufort, SC before their fuel dock closed. Skull Creek has beautiful brand new concrete floating docks. The fuel dock is the second most northerly dock with an easy approach. There was a lot of current parallel to the face clock. Attentive and reasonably competent dock attendant helped with lines and diesel hose but not with rubbish or water hose. My only complaint was the exhorbitant $3.79 per gallon for diesel. Thunderbolt to the south and Beaufort to the north undercut that by as much as 70 cents per gallon. Do plan your fuel stops more efficiently than I did today.
