Search Charleston South Carolina

The Charleston Maritime Center was completed in October 1997. Located near the new South Carolina Aquarium, the Charleston Maritime Center is part of a plan to redevelop the historic waterfront and provide waters-edge access to its residents and visitors.

The Charleston Maritime Center is conveniently located near the historic district in downtown, and provides free parking for marina tenants and special events guests. The center is also within easy walking distance of the historic market, several hotels, the King Street shopping district, and waterfront park.

The Charleston Maritime Center has both a deep-water, full-service marina and premiere special events facilities. The marina can accommodate boats up to 180' in length, and offers dockage without the restriction of any overpasses or bridges. The special events facilities at the Maritime Center can house events from 20 to 5000 people. The center is open daily from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

Location: 10 Wharfside Street, Charleston South Carolina 29401 Telephone 843-853-3625
