    The Dataw Island Yacht Club (DIYC) is so grateful to have our full service marina back in business. The new staff has been great in getting our dry stack boat owners in and out of the water particularly in support of our many cruises, as well as getting our boats fueled and cleaned as requested. The staff has also been great in coordinating our wet slip users and supporting arrivals and departures. The new full service maintenance organization is in place and working on our boats as well as many visiting boats from small outboards to large live-aboard vessels. They have haul out capacity up to 50 tons and 9 foot draft. The onsite restaurant, Morgan River Grill, looking out over the marina, is great for lunch, dinner or just drinks on the porch.

    The marina has some transient dockage space. Transients can access the private facilities at Dataw, including two 18 hole golf courses, multiple tennis courts, pickle ball courts, swimming pools and restaurant facilities. Access to the Dataw facilities is coordinated through the DIYC, so contact us on your next stay at our marina.

    Looking for a full service marina between Charleston and Hilton Head SC? Make your way to the Dataw Island Marina. This deep water marina has almost everything you could ask for; just off the ICW, haul out service up to 50 tons, mechanical repairs of all kinds, a “Best of Beaufort” chef serving meals from the on-site restaurant that are out of this world and just a 15 minute ride to Historic Beaufort. The marina is on the Morgan River and well protected. Fuel includes both diesel and Ethanol free gas. The marina also has clean restrooms, showers and laundry facilities available. Whether you are just passing through or spending the night you’ll be hard pressed to find a better spot to stop.

    This is a great marina and a perfect stop north of Beaufort just off the ICW. Great restaurant on site, floating docks and a great marina staff. It is very well protected and quiet. This marina has just been rebuilt and a fantastic place to visit. **CAUTION** You may end up wanting to buy a home here after you visit this wonderful island!

    We love the Dataw Marina! It’s a gorgeous spot with a fabulous restaurant and the nicest people! The dolphins are always jumping on Morgan River. Great place to get fuel and grab a bite to eat!!

    I live on Dataw Island and have my boat in the Dataw Marina dry stack which is tremendously convenient as my boat can be put in the water in a matter of minutes, fueled and ready to go. With the on-site Morgan River Grill (MRG) restaurant, great food and drink is readily available after a day on the water.

    I live on Dataw Island and this is my home port. After being closed since 2016 due to Hurricane Matthew, we were so excited to reopen phase one of our marina in 2019. The location on the Morgan River provides a truly picturesque setting to watch beautiful sunsets. Staff is very friendly and accommodating and eager to please. There is a great restaurant onsite and a service yard to meet most of your needs. Both diesel and gas are available. Showers are well maintained. Bicycles are available for a leisurely ride around the island. Located about halfway between Charleston and Savannah, this is a great stop for a relaxing evening, weekend, or longer.

    This is a beautiful marina on a beautiful gated island. There's a nice restaurant and you can rent a golf cart and tour the island. The showers and restrooms are nice and clean.

    Unfortunately, Hurricane Mathew pretty much destroyed the marina and as of this date (April, 2017) it is not back in service yet so you can't go there. They do (did) have diesel fuel and I suspect gasoline.

    The five stars are from before the storm and I expect they will be as good once they reopen.
