Woods Memorial Bridge - Beaufort, SC

Welcome! ICW Free Docks is a guide for complementary and almost free dock offerings from towns and communities along the Atlantic IntraCoastal Waterway. Free Docks are offered by many communities to attract cruisers to their town knowing that you will spend money with their local merchants.


Free Docks are a win-win for boaters who are traveling the ICW as well as the communities. In exchange for a free place to dock our boats overnight or a couple days we reward the community with our shopping dollars. We all have to buy groceries, fuel, and other necessities of life somewhere! Why not do this in a community that appreciates our business?

Enjoy the free guide to ICW Free Docks and let the local communities you visit know that you visited their town because you learned about them on ICW Free Docks.

The guide ICW Free Docks is FREE to all users and is provided at no charge to the town or community offering the Free Docks.

The following affiliated manufacturers recognize the growing group of boaters who are following ICW Free Docks and are offering exclusive promotional discounts for their products.

Cruising is not just a hobby or even a lifestyle. It is a life! The equipment that supports this “Life at Sea” must be reliable, efficient and affordable.

We lived that life for 12 years. We logged over 70,000 Nautical Miles from Newfoundland to the Caribbean and through the Great Lakes. We met thousands of fellow cruisers and have researched hundreds of products, many of which were recommended by others. We have tested them in the real world and refined, re-designed or merely distribute the ones that we found worked best for us. Every product that we sell has been personally tested and approved and you can call us for directions, advice or even if you have found something that works better. 

ICW Free Docks is self-funded and by small commissions received for product purchases made with affiliated manufacturers listed on this web site. Any and all contributions are appreciated. Just click on the "Donate" button below to process a secure contribution through PayPal.
