Price Creek near St mile 450

Price Creek, AICW st mile 450 (approximate)

Anyone been here? I want to anchor here in a few days but I want to get as close to the beach as I can since I have two dogs. Don't want too much of a dinghy ride for the last pee of the night. The charts make it look like Schooner Creek near the inlet might be a good place.

I can't remember the name of the creek that we anchored in several years ago, but it was near McClellansville. Didn't go to the beach, but could hear the ocean at night.

We always used Dewee's Creek and it's branches, such as Long Creek northwest of the ICW, at 455. Lots of options, very good holding, pretty Low Country surroundings. We don't have dogs, but the banks are mud/dirt, same as the area around Price's. I would suspect less current than Price's.

I think that's five fathom creek. I might stop in McClellanville but probably go to Leland Oil. Right now I have no dink motor so anchoring is out. Dogs need regular shore breaks.

OK, no dink pretty much rules it out. One thing about the Dewee's Creek anchorages there are some places where you can get the big boat pretty snug to the shore. Do you trust your dogs to swim over and back? Oars on the dinghy?

Call and check the depth going into Leland. If you get in there say hi to Dwayne and have the BEST Low Country supper anywhere at TW Grahams!

Looks OK from the charts if you want to pick your way down to the sandy parts near the inlet.

If stopping near McClellanville...I sometimes shoot for a late arrival, tie to or drop my crew off with the dog at the boat ramp dock and then again in the early morning. I do the same with daytime only city docks. Just a thought if trying to anchor out with a dog and the dingy isn't a great option.

You bet! Been to Leland and so I think it should be OK. I'm told they have new floating docks. I'm due in Georgetown on Monday so hopefully I can find a competent mechanic to fix my outboard. Then Price Creek is still an option. We do have oars, but only for emergencies. I've seen current in some of these places that would send you out to sea! In those situations I normally carry a good anchor and 100' of rode in case the motor craps out. No chance to beat a good current with oars, although waiting for slack tide can be an option.

If I make it up in there where I want to be I'll post here and also add an anchorage on ActiveCaptain. It looks deep all the way to the inlet bar, but I like hearing local knowledge. Gonna call for it as I'm approaching to hear what Sea Tow says.

We've anchored at Awendaw Creek, around mile 336, just below McClellanville. Hang a right at marker R48. Good holding. The breeze should keep the bugs away.
We’ve anchored off the North Santee, in Big Duck Creek also.

If you’re going to be in the North Myrtle Beach area next week (May 3), we’re having a pig roast in our marina and you’re more than welcome to stop by and be my guest. We’re just under 40 miles north of Georgetown. KJ

With the tides there no dink motor I hope doesn't mean no dink because the mother ship isn't going near those banks unless you want to stay a while. Five Fathoms is a magical place on a moonlit night!

Wait a minute... sounds like you are heading south ? Just assumed this time of year it would north. Whhoops!

Again , if you are concerned about currents and your dink, it's less of an issue on the northerly sides of the ICW. You might want to call one of the marinas, such as Georgetown Landing (really nice people) which has a lot of outboard boats, about finding a good outboard guy ahead of time.

Have fun!

By the way here is a link to the last survey of Jeremy Creek, in October,which prompted my comment about calling ahead to Leland about getting in there. Not sure if it has been dredged since, otherwise, have to play the tides a bit or inch along carefully if you draw more than four feet.

Oh, and this recent article too.

That's a place I've been meaning to visit but never have. Friends rave about it. One of the islands has restrictions against dogs. The other does not. Find out which is which before you take your dogs ashore.

Rowing against the current could be very difficult. That's most anywhere around here.

You read my mind. Yes we are heading South and as usual we are going the wrong way! Must have passed 20 boats today going the other way.

Georgetown Landing is where we will leave our boat until the Hurricane Season, and yes, we did call ahead and they will have a mechanic ready. If they can get our outboard fixed we will head on further South. I know the area well and there is no way I'll get in my dink after dark with two dogs and two oars and a 4HP two stroke with no lower unit. 'Tis OK, we ain't trying to get anywhere, just moving our boat to escape from the Tax Man.

Yes, ActiveCaptain stated where not to take the dogs. Current for us is a normal thing. Our CQR setup has never let us down. I will report back what we find here and also on ActiveCaptain what we find out.

Thanks again for the friendly replies. It is good to be back on the water.

Barefoot? We were just there. Great showers and good for dogs which is why we always stop. Hate to miss the pig roast because we've met many of the locals and they are fun people. We are moving slowly South and I guess we are non-conformists.

Good plan all around!

Not sure I understand the Tax Man comment (?)

Haven't got a bill from NC. If I get one I'll give them proof it is located in SC. Gotta be there for six months to get a bill from SC but by then I'll be somewhere else.

I am not a cheap skate, but in some counties they really turn the screws to you. Horry County (Myrtle Beach) is one of them I'm told. Here at this marina they told me a guy takes his expensive boat to different marinas for six month periods just to avoid the tax bill. The thing is, I think each County valuates things differently... The way I see it, I'm registered with the CG and not a state, so tax me on a federal level. Otherwise I'm going to try and skirt it.

If you really want to be safe about this, don't take the word of "some guy at a marina", talk with a tax advisor. The penalties for tax avoidance can be pretty severe.

Tax avoidance-----no problem. Tax evasion-----big problem.

Somehow my earlier post didn't get posted, but you hit the nail on the head. 'nuff said. I pay a guy good money to minimize my tax burden. It is all legal.
