TowBoatUS operator adds South Carolina location

Capt. Steve Little, owner of TowBoatUS Charleston (S.C.), opened a new port on Bohicket Creek on Seabrook Island.

The new TowBoatUS port is about 40 water miles south of Charleston, where Little has operated a port for five years.

“We serviced the area before,” he said in a statement, “but the average run time to get there from Charleston was two hours by water and we wanted to provide faster service.”

Bohicket Creek is an active boating area about halfway between Charleston and Beaufort, five miles from the Atlantic Ocean and seven miles from the ICW. The region is a popular stopping point for cruisers headed north or south and is busy with local boaters.

Little has seven boats in Charleston and a 25-foot C-Hawk on Bohicket Creek that cruises at 20 knots and tops out at about 30.
