Location: Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
Welcome to Freedom Boat Club of Hilton Head Island:
Exclusive, convenient and ideal.
Low country marshes along the barrier islands of South Carolina and Georgia, replete with vibrant wildlife and abundant open space, will trigger a sense of calm as you depart our dock and leave behind the big city hustle and bustle.
Nearby boating destinations feature a variety of dining choices as well as beautiful spots for fishing, swimming, water sporting, or simply enjoying the beach. Located within Hilton Head Plantation (at the Skull Creek Marina on the intracoastal waterway between markers 9A and 11), our club is convenient to the entire island and a short drive from both Bluffton and Beaufort (just over the Highway 278 Bridge). Classic Savannah is merely an hour’s boat ride away.
Luxurious resorts and golf courses are found on Daufuskie Island. But visitors must take a boat or private ferry, as there are no bridges. On the May River in Bluffton, Palmetto Bluff is another ultra-exclusive residential community in development, boasting a waterside village with shopping and restaurants.
