KICA is pleased to announce a restructured process and fee schedule for our members who enjoy boating. Effective immediately, the cost for boat launch access, which provides access decals for the Rhett’s Bluff and Eagle Point boat launches, will be reduced from $300 per year to a one-time fee of $100.
Property owners will no longer need to renew annually and need only renew if they purchase a new boat. This is similar to how vehicle decal renewals work. The contractual process, and requirements to post decals, remains unchanged.
Current launch contract holders will receive a letter explaining the change, along with a $200 refund if already renewed for 2016. If you are an existing contract holder and have not yet paid, you may submit the $100 fee, either by check payable to KICA, 23 Beachwalker Drive, Kiawah Island, SC 29455, or online. Be sure to reference your Kiawah property and boat information. If you would like to secure launch access, you may download the 2016 application and return.
Those who boat infrequently may purchase daily launch tickets at the Sandcastle for $15 each.
