Can anyone recommend a good/secure place to rent a slip for a Montauk around Garden City, SC? I have contacted Capt. Dick's Marina, but would be interested in hearing from anyone with first hand information. Also, if anyone is willing to discuss local knowledge (fishing, waterfront restaurants, good cruising areas, etc.) for an upcoming trip, please drop me an email. Thanks in advance.

We go to Garden City almost every year. We rent a house that has a dock. But there is a nice marina there, Marlin Quay. We have tied up there for dinner. The dockmaster is very knowledgable about the local area and what is biting what. The web site is

goosedog,
I live in the area. Capt. Dick's has just finished dredging new slips. I don't think they will be open again until march 1. There is a public boat ramp next to Capt. Dick's. it is 1st class. You may not need to keep your boat in the water at all. You should also put into the ICWW. It makes for a nice day with the family. You can put your boat in at the end of Wachasaw Rd. in Murrells Inlet. There is a nice beach at Sandy Island to the south. The ICWW is fresh H2O so its good for skiing,& swimming.

There is good fishing in the inlet for flounder,red rum, good crabing too. Good fishing off shore if you want to charter. Lots of Golf around. Go to Lee's Inlet Apothocary and get an inlet fishing map. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE TIDES. You can get stuck in the mud 1&1/2 hours either side of low tide in Murrells inlet.

Restaurants abound in the area. Gulf Stream Cafe at Marlin's Quay. Devine's, Capt. Dave's Dockside, Hot Fish Club, Lee's Inlet Kitchen, and Creekrats are some I like in Murrells Inlet.

We use to eat at One-Eye Jack's in Murles Inlet. Good offshore fishing is 60-70 miles out. I've fished on Capt. Dick's charters, but man, you spend most of the time riding.
