Marine Industry in Horry County

With easy access to the ICWW and ultimately to the entire eastern seaboard, any business needing waterway access or use will not only find a perfect location but a talented and dedicated workforce. Additionally, our workforce development and education partners are committed to assisting businesses in development training programs to meet the needs of each individual industry. The Bucksport Marine Park is a partnership among Grand Strand Water and sewer Authority, Santee Cooper, Horry County Government, and the Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corporation. One of the greatest assets of this site is its direct access to the Intracoastal Waterway (ICWW). It is constructed on a 100-acre site adjacent to the historic Bucksport Marina located approximately thirty nautical miles from Winyah Bay and thirty nautical miles from Little River inlet.
