    Cool Step ashore Vs Come ashore?

    Hello amigos!

    The sailors stepped/came ashore as soon as the ship docked at the harbour.

    Which one fits better in the sample above?

    Thanks,

    Sam

    I would say "came ashore."

    Cool Re: Step ashore Vs Come ashore?

    How can I use "step ashore" then? Could you exemplify for me?

    Thanks,

    Step ashore emphasizes the action, not the destination.

    Meg's boat had such a small draft that we could come within inches of the bank of the stream. It was a simple matter to step ashore - no dock, no skiff - just one simple step.
