On the Water

The Fripp Island marina offers every convenience imaginable for boat owners and resort guests. Just a few miles from the Intracoastal Waterway, the marina offers offshore charters and inshore fishing with experienced guides. The Marina Store, located on Old House Creek, is fully stocked with everything needed for a great day on the water. The marina has 65 convenient wet slips and 120 dry slips for long-term storage. The marina is owned and operated by the Fripp Island Golf and Beach Resort.

  • In-out ramp service

Choose offshore or inshore fishing accompanied by experienced charter guides. Offshore in the Gulf Stream, chances are good you’ll catch sailfish, mahi-mahi, barracuda, kingfish, marlin, wahoo, grouper or snapper. Inshore, the South Carolina coast has plentiful trout, flounder, red drum, cobia, tarpon and Spanish mackerel.
