Monday Paddle

Over the past several weeks, I have been seeing several manatees cruising through Broad Creek. Manatees will often visit marinas in search of a drink of fresh water. While this can be a cool experience, giving the manatees fresh water is discouraged as they will be more inclined to visit marinas for their next drink. These large and slow-moving marine mammals have few natural predators due to their size, but boat and/or propeller strikes can result in serious injury Manatees Our neighbors at Palmetto Bay Marina offer complimentary docking for patrons visiting their restaurants for breakfast, lunch, dinner and/or drinks. This is a perfect way to cap off a day on the water before returning to Long Cove Club. Restaurants include Carolina Crab Company, Black Marlin, Palmetto Bay Sunrise Cafe and Hurricane Bar. Dock and Dine I am pleased to announce that optional services are now available for our boaters. Services include engine flushing, basic cleaning, absentee services and boater training to include coastal navigation, tide information, docking practice and more. A full list of voluntary services are available on the Marina page of Member Central or give me a call to discuss. Services must be scheduled directly with me in advance by calling or texting (843) 295-7557. or even death. It is best to give these marine mammals their space, especially if you encounter one while onboard a powered vessel. I am excited to announce the addition of "Monday Paddle" at the Marina. I will lead a group of LCC members on a one- hour paddle on Broad Creek. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about our local waters or those who simply want a quick Monday morning workout. Please sign-up in advance by texting or call Mark Finger at (843) 295-7557 so we can ensure we have enough kayaks. Depending on popularity, additional sessions may be scheduled.
