On the Intra-Coastal Waterway, we ask that you stay within the limits of the two bridges. Don't go past the Georgetown Bridge (Unless you are going to the restaurants in Georgetown to eat) and Don't go past the Socastee Swing Bridge.
In the Inlet, you must stay inside the jetties inside the Inlet. You may not go out into the ocean.
Where do I park?
For Wacca Wache waterway reservation we ask that you text your last name to 843-882-5210 as you are approaching the marina. Turn right just past the grey storage building and wait at the
electric gate for someone to let you in to park. Do NOT go all the way down to the restaurant. You've gone too far. We will meet you at the electric gate to swipe you into the parking area.
If you are at our Inlet Location, please park across the street from Dead Dog Saloon and take the pathway that goes between the Dead Dog Saloon and the Claw House to the Marshwalk then go left and look for our boats down on the dock.
Is there a place to eat around your location?
Yes! Deck 383 is located right at Wacca Wache Marina. They have great lunch and dinner options ( closed on Mondays) It is a great place to go after your boat rental as they have a new gorgeous outdoor seating area under a moss-laden oak tree. Sit and enjoy your meal as you watch the boats cruise along the Waccamaw River. Their sunsets are to die for!
At our Inlet location, we highly recommend Dead Dog Saloon and The Claw House Restaurants located on The Marshwalk.
