South Creek Upper Anchorage (off the AICW)

South Creek Upper Anchorage
Lat/Lon: 32 34.160 North/080 12.514 West
Location: South Creek makes into the North Edisto’s southwestern banks, south of Bohicket Creek’s southern mouth; this anchorage will be found immediately upstream of the “sy” notation on chart 11522
Minimum Depth: 6 to 13 feet (SEE SPECIAL NOTE BELOW)
Swing Room: sufficient room for vessels as large as 36 feet
Foul Weather Shelter: Good in all but strong easterly winds
Special Note: the eastern mouth of South Creek is surrounded by unmarked shoals, which can quickly result in a grounding; slightly favor the southern side of the entrance for best depths, but please understand that South Creek should ONLY be entered by skippers with special local knowledge, or those willing to take a risk!
Also, an UNCHARTED oyster bank lies just upstream (west) of this anchorage. Further upstream exploration is a BAD idea!

    I have anchored here before and even went around the next turn to the right. Stay close to south shore. I found good bottom and plenty of swing room. Several fishing boats went by, slow with no wake and there is a mild current. You could hear the ocean at night.

    WARNING – the north side of the entrance is very shallow, hug the south shore and try picking a rising tide. I had 8′ at MLW.
