How to reach:
To reach the tidal bench marks from the intersection of U.S. Highway 17 bypass and S-22-62 in Murrells Inlet, proceed west on S-22-62 for 4.0 km (2.5 mi) to Wachesaw Landing on the Waccamaw River. Continue by boat, north on Waccamaw River (Intracoastal Waterway) about 5 km (3 statute mi) to the split in the river, take the left fork (Bull Creek) and travel west for about 5 km (3 mi) to the north shore of Sandy Island. The bench marks are located on Sandy Island, along the dirt road. The tide gage and staff were located on a platform constructed close to Sandy Island.
