to the Waterways

A first-in-class marina, a member’s only fleet, parties, happy hours, and year-round family fun. Wilson Landing is here for whatever floats your boat.

Slip into Wilson Landing

Easy access to the rippling waterways that circuit Palmetto Bluff comes courtesy of the Wilson Landing marina. Originally conceived as a dry storage facility to benefit Palmetto Bluff members with private vessels, the impressive facility has greatly expanded its offerings since opening in 2006. Along with adding kayak and paddleboard storage for members, the marina has become a social hub, hosting monthly themed happy hours, seasonal parties, and two much anticipated annual events: The Start of Season Boat Show and the End of Season Party for Wilson Landing Boat Club members. Monthly boat excursions across the Lowcountry have become a favorite for the boating community, where trips to places like Beaufort, Savannah, and the Port Royal Maritime Museum include lunch, happy hour, and a hearty camaraderie between boating buddies.

A word from

Stephan Szymanski, Marina Director at Wilson Landing

“It’s so gratifying to see new Palmetto Bluff Club relationships blossom at the Wilson Marina. Through our shared happy hours, boating excursions and seasonal parties, there’s a real camaraderie between them–forged by a mutual love of time spent on the water.”

Meet the Fleet

The Wilson Landing Boat Club, created in 2015, was designed for boat enthusiasts without vessels of their own to experience the breathtaking waterways of the Bluff and surrounding areas. Currently, 250+ Boat Club members have access to 18 salt- and six fresh-water vessels including a Carolina Skiff, Electric Duffy, and an Electric Cruiser. The fleet allows members and their families a full menu of adventure from sunset cruising to adrenaline-charged tubing to afternoon fishing beneath a cyan blue sky. And for those who’ve not quite gained their sea legs yet, the Boat Club gifts new members with 6 hours of confidence-boosting training on operating vessels, water safety, and navigating the region’s waterways.

A Trio of Rolling Rivers

As a community surrounded by rivers on three sides, Palmetto Bluff offers a lifestyle as inspiring on the water as it is on the land. The May River to the north and northeast, the Cooper River to the east and southeast, and the New River to the south and southwest invite days of exploration and adventure. The shimmering ribbons of waterway circuiting the Bluff welcome families and friends on kayaks and canoes, Duffy boats and paddleboards. Sandy shores set the stage for noonday picnics, or wine and cheese beneath the pastel pinks of sunset. And both the Catch-of-the-Day (and the one-that-got-away) anticipate fishermen eager for an afternoon of solitude on the water.
