The Marina at Edisto Beach

     If you haven’t gotten a chance to swing by the Marina yet this summer, you are missing out!  The Marina at Edisto Beach has taken on new ownership and made some wonderful new changes.   This year you can look forward to a newly remolded ship store fully stocked with bait, tackle, apparel, marine supplies and any refreshments needed for a full day on the water.    The Marina now offers inshore and offshore fishing charters, boat tours, sunset cruises and kayak excursions. There will be several fishing tournaments held throughout the year.  The Marina at Edisto Beach has also teamed up Pressleys Restaurant with live music out on the deck Thursday – Saturday.  Locals and visitors alike can enjoy live music while enjoying a refreshing drink, tasty dinner, all while taking in the sunset over Big Bay Creek! 

Be sure to stop by and check them out at 3702 Docksite Road on Edisto Beach or you can go to their website at .  You can call them at (843) 631-5055 to get a fishing tournament schedule or any other information.  When you visit please pet Milton (their unofficially mascot) on the head for us!

Beach Safety

Now that summer time is in full swing, here are a few things to keep in mind so your family makes the most of vacation while staying safe!

  • Bring plenty of water and snacks to help keep you hydrated and fueled up.
  • Know how to swim and never swim alone. 
  • Protect your skin from the harmful rays from the sun.  Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen and have a good source of shade (umbrellas, hat or clothing).
  • If you get stung by a jellyfish, rinse the sting with seawater.  Deactivate stinger by rinsing the sting with vinegar for 30 seconds.  Relieve pain by soaking the sting in hot water for at least 20 minutes.
  • If you see a current of choppy, off-colored water extending from the shore, steer clear. If you do get caught in a rip current, stay calm, save your energy (let the current carry you for a while), and keep breathing. Don’t try to swim against the current! Gain your composure and start swimming horizontal to the shore until you’re out of the current. Then turn and swim diagonally towards the shore. If you can’t make it to the shore, wave your arms and make noise so someone can see or hear you and get help.
  • Avoid swimming at night time or during twilight hours when sharks are most active
  • The jetties (rock groins) are dangerous, be sure to stay off of them.  Sudden waves can knock you off your balance.  The rocks are slippery due to constant sea spray.
