Detailed Directions for tours departing from Edisto Marina: The Dolphin Ecotour, Sunset Cruise, ACE and Morgan Ecotours leave from Dock Slip D 2 at the Marina at Edisto Beach, 3706 Docksite Road, Edisto Beach (29438). We are on the water in between Bay Creek Park and Bay Creek Villas near State Rd S-15-683. The park is surrounded by a white, vinyl rail fence. Guests can park for free in the Bay Creek parking lot, then walk through the gate in the white fence leading to the marina. The sign for the marina reads “Edisto Marine Commercial District” and has signs for Edisto Marina, Botany Bay Ecotours and fishing charter businesses. Walk down the 150 yard boardwalk to the last finger dock and Dock Slip D-2.

Crab College/Island Excursions and State Park Ecotours depart from the Environmental Learning Center (ELC) dock at Edisto Beach State Park at Live Oak Landing. The address is Oyster Row Lane. Turn off of Hwy 174 onto Palmetto Rd (not Palmetto Boulevard), follow the signs to Live Oak Landing and turn right to the ELC.


Driving Directions to Slip D2:

  • From US-17/Savannah Hwy, turn onto State Hwy 174.
  • Continue to follow State Hwy 174 to Edisto Beach. Speed limit is 45 mph in construction zones!
  • Once you reach Edisto Beach, Hwy 174 will curve right and parallel the ocean.
  • At the 1700 block, turn right onto Lybrand St.
  • After the 4 way stop, Lybrand curves left and becomes Dock Site Rd.
  • Drive approximately 3/4 of a mile and The Marina at Edisto Beach will be on your right. The sign is small, so look for Bay Creek Park with a white rail fence and Bay Creek Condos.
  • Parking is free and located across the street from the Marina.
  • Walk down the Marina boardwalk (about 150 yards) to Dock Slip D 2.
