This little cove is a blend of specialty shops, restaurants, marina, lighthouse/museum and boat tours.
A definite must do is a visit to the lighthouse. Benches and rockers offer idyllic locations to sit and watch the world go by. This is a great place to go on a day when clouds may deter a visit to a beach. The area is not large so planning a few hours and including a meal at a restaurant is a good idea. There is a playground and public restrooms. A nominal per car cash entrance fee is charged as you enter the property as it is a gated community.

The Tuesday night Harborfest activities for children were good but a bit overpriced for bouncy houses and shaved ice. The musical guest was entertaining for kids under the age of 11, but my older kids were bored waiting for the fireworks. The fireworks were kind of blah compared to local shows we have seen before. I'd definitely return to this area for dinner and strolling, but I probably won't stay for the fireworks show.

Expert instruction for the fundamentals of stand up paddle boarding in the 90 minute lesson. In no time she had us hopping up and down off the board and padding up and down the waterway.Would highly recommend this activity to anyone with a beginning yearn to paddle board.

Our afternoon on our rented pontoon boat was great fun. We had five adults and 6 children and each of us took away a lasting memory. The boat was in great shape, we had no issues with its operation, and the three hour trip came off flawlessly. I had to change the booking date twice due to concerning weather forecasts but, the person with whom I interacted was very kind and open to the idea of the date changes. There was no additional charge and no hassle with the request. I would highly recommend this marina for any boat rental.

The beauty of Shelter Cove is unfortunately ruined by the Shannon Tanner musical chair kiddie shows 4 nites a week. Who is in charge of using this low level high decibel disaster entertainment? This venue is exclusively designed for children but not adults. He needs to transfer his show across the pond to the disney resort across the marina. Better to have no music than to hear that voice. I can't believe the Shelter Cove residents and shop/restaurant/boat owners allow this type of noise pollution.

Really nice area to walk around and look at nice boats or rent boats, jet skis, and etc. There were retail stores and restaurants, and nice clean public bathrooms. Great place to relax and enjoy the view. The Sunday we were there not far away was a Latin festival with live music and salsa dancing. The weather was a perfect 80 degrees.

This picturesque deep-water marina is surrounded by residential/lodging units and a variety of shopping and dining opportunities. We stopped in for a pleasant stroll on the boardwalk around the marina. The centerpiece of Shelter Cove: a 12-foot bronze statue of Neptune with his trident. It is said to be the world’s largest figurative sundial. Free parking; no gate fees.

Booked a fishing trip with Captain Jason aboard the Phantom. Caught many sharks, pinfish, sea bass, Croaker's, and then slammed two hammer kingfish! My 9yr. Old had a blast on his first ever saltwater fishing trip. Captain Jason showed us one for the books! The Captain worked hard for us and put us on the fish! We'll be back!

Paddle boarding at the Shelter Cove Marina with Pippi was awesome! She gives a quick, yet thorough explanation of the equipment and maneuvers involved in Stand-Up Paddle boarding. With her tips, we felt extremely comfortable riding the water and enjoying the sights. We absolutely loved the experience and highly recommend it as a vacation activity, or just something fun to do if you live on the Island.

Jason Wheeler was awesome!! He took great care of myself and 4 high school boys who wanted to get on the water. The pontoon boat was perfect, and the boys had a blast boating around HHI.

Highly recommend Shelter Cove if you want to get on the water - ask for Jason!
