The Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) is a navigational route for boaters who are traveling along the eastern seaboard and spans about 3,000 miles from the gulf coast town of Brownsville, Texas up to the unofficial terminus in Manasquan River in NJ. In South Carolina, the waterway is a popular route, not only because it is somewhat safer than the open water, but because the marsh views and the abundance of wildlife along the way make for a much nicer experience. For boaters traveling from the New York area down to Key West, Florida, Charleston is an ideal place to dock. Whether they drop anchor in the river, or tie up at one of the marinas, boaters enjoy stopping over in Charleston to play a round of golf, go sightseeing, or have a nice evening out on the town.
In Charleston, one of the nicest stretches of the Intracoastal Waterway runs about nine miles from the Charleston Harbor between the marshes of Mount Pleasant and Sullivan’s Island, up past Goldbug Island, Isle of Palms and Dewees Island. Homeowners along this part of the ICW enjoy life on the natural and protected beauty of the inland waterway, exploring the various tidal creeks and barrier islands, and the simple convenience of boating from their properties to other parts of town.
