    We went from Beaufort SC to a beautiful anchorage called Steamboat Creek about 43 miles from Beaufort.

    Anchored there [Steamboat Creek] 4 times in the last 2 years near the gazebo marking the landing. This is a private farm and I got run off by the caretaker while taking my dog for a walk.
    Depths run 20 to 25 ft. near the dock. Last time I had to anchor near the eastern shore of the creek to try to get in the lee of the trees. Saw two bald eagles. The caretaker said there was a big nest nearby.
    The creek runs some 3 miles long and there are several homes on up in it. There is a public dock/ ramp just south of the Steamboat gazebo and you can go ashore to walk your dogs. Good anchorage, plenty of water and swing room.

    Another beautiful and excellent anchors. Depths runs as much as 50’ when entering the creek and average 20’ or more up to the steamboat house. There is quite a bit of small boat traffic in the creek which can be aggravating but the beauty of the area outweighs the disturbance from the small boats.

    We anchored opposite the “Steamboat House” and found it to be a very good anchorage except that it is pretty exposed to the west north and east. I would recommend it.
