Boating & Fishing
The Fripp Island deep-water marina lies just two miles from the Atlantic and offers convenient access to hundreds of square miles of Low Country marsh and creeks. Marine services include a boat ramp, dockage, boat storage, and repair. Additionally, gasoline and oil are offered for boats and automobiles. Fishing, crabbing, and shrimping are superb in the inlets and waters that surround Fripp Island and are allowed in all saltwater areas. These maritime activities do not require a permit or license as long as what you catch is used for personal consumption only. However, you are required to have a permit or license when any of the activities listed above are conducted from a boat. The Fripp Island Marina can provide complete information on licensing, regulations, and minimum sizes for catches. They can also inform you when and where to go digging for oysters or clamming. Additionally, the Marina Store offers launch services, fishing licenses, and bait and tackle. The Fripp Island Marina is also home to Island Excursions, a convenient location for boat and watercraft rentals. Go to our Rental Items Page for more information.
