Eco-Activities

Where else can you enjoy activities on both salt water and fresh water within 3 miles of each other?

If salt water is for you…perhaps you’d like to catch your own dinner as you feel the ocean spray tickle your face on a half or full day fishing charter from one of our inlet marinas. You can also explore the salt marsh on an ecology tour or get your adrenaline pumping with a parasail ride, a jet ski, kayak canoe, eco, dolphin or adventure tour.

If you prefer the fresh water of the Waccamaw River, for nearly 60 years, Wacca Wache Marina has been a popular stopover point for weary waterway travelers as well as a place for local boaters, fishermen, and hunters to launch their craft.

Wacca Wache is a freshwater marina conveniently located at ICW Marker #57 on the Waccamaw River in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. The Waccamaw River is one of the most scenic stretches of the Intracoastal Waterway. Tall cypress and oak trees draped in Spanish moss and grass-covered picnic areas have made the marina a popular recreation area.

Many boaters making the annual voyage up and down the waterway frequently stop over at Wacca Wache to tour nearby Brookgreen Gardens or to take advantage of the area’s many golf courses and restaurants.

Brookgreen Gardens

Brookgreen Gardens

Perhaps a relaxing stroll under the twisting, mossy live oaks of Brookgreen Gardens is more your scene. The historic site is the largest outdoor sculpture garden in the world and a perfect spot for a picnic. Huntington Beach State Park, home to an undeveloped beach, hiking trails, campsites, a nature center, marshland, and a real stone castle, is just down the street from Brookgreen Gardens.

If you’re a golfer, chances are that you know of the fabulous selection of almost 100 championship courses located along South Carolina’s Grand Strand, many of them located in  Murrells Inlet.
