The Dreher Shoals Dam [commonly known as the Lake Murray Dam] is the structure that created Lake Murray. Built between 1927 and 1930, the dam is now host to a new walking pathway, directly across the top of the dam along S.C. Highway 6. The pathway is 1.7 miles each way, for a total walk of 3.4 miles full of beautiful views of the lake and of the downtown Columbia skyline 11 miles off!

Bomb Island is 12 acres of land in the middle of Lake Murray that serves as North America’s first purple martin [a species of swallow] sanctuary and its largest roosting site. Formerly known as Doolittle Island, the land mass was renamed thanks to WWII pilots’ use of it and surrounding islands for bombing practice. Today, Bomb Island is known for being “bombed” by close to a million purple martins that migrate there almost every summer; watching the birds return to their roosts every evening following a full day of foraging is quite an awe-inspiring sight!

Superior Reviews

"We've been members of the club now for about 2 years and just love it. We have always had our own boat. But when it came time to place a newer boat, we decided to give the club a try. We just love Tony and the crew that makes boating so easy. I call it valet boating. We just show up and the boat is ready to go. And after we are finished, Tony and the crew take care of all the maintenance. No work at all for us. I had worried that we couldn't get a boat when we wanted it. But that's not been a problem. We may not get our first choice boat, but we always get a nice boat that runs well. Because it's less work for us, our family goes out on the lake a good bit more than we used to when we had our own boat. Because it's no work for us, we might go out for just a couple of hours or the whole day...depending on what's going on. I highly recommend our club. Great boats, lake access, and great people!"

"I have owned a boat all my life. I sold my old flat bottom fishing boat to buy a more deep V boat with my wife in mind. We looked at $40,000 - $60,000 new boats, $20,000 trucks to pull them and $3,000/yr to store it. (Not to mention maintenance.) Then we thought about the time it takes. We have to get the boat ready, hook it to a truck, drive it to the “special gas” stations, then drive to water. Somehow back a 20+ foot boat into the water at a CRAZY public boat launch. Then, tie off the boat and find a place to park. When you finished boating, do all of that over again! (If you hurry and sweat, at least 2 hours wasted.) Oh, I forgot to mention while your hot and exhausted, cleaning the boat when your done. "

"I have had an awesome experience with Nautical Boat Club. As a long-time boat owner, I have experienced the frustration and cost of boat ownership first hand. This is a way better deal! All of the boats are brand-new (or nearly brand new) and are always spotless. I have been a member for about 5 months, and I have always been able to take a boat out whenever I want! I would highly recommend to anyone interested in boating but not willing to deal with the headache of owning a boat!"

"These guys are great - very attentive and friendly... and very knowledgeable about the local waters and the boats. We are novice boaters so this makes us very comfortable. The boats are beautiful and so well maintained. Reservations are easy to make, and they are always there ready for your arrival. We love this club!"
