Seafarer Charters of Charleston Trips

The waters in and surrounding Charleston Harbor provide the perfect habitat for targeting all kinds of inshore game species on light tackle, like Redfish, Black Drum, Flounder, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, and a variety of shark species. On this inshore trip with Captain Brent, you will fish the historic Charleston Harbor and its waterways all within a short and comfortable boat ride from one of Captain Brent's convenient pickup locations. Protected from the winds and waves generally associated with offshore fishing trips, these inshore fishing charters are perfect for those who are new to boating and fishing. You’ll be fishing aboard Captain Brent's 27-foot Pathfinder center console. She can accommodate up to 6 anglers on the spacious and comfortable deck. Captain Brent will provide rods, reels, tackle, licenses, bait, ice, cooler, and bottled water. Feel free to bring your own equipment as well as any food and drinks of your choice. Don’t forget sunscreen and a hat. Read More

Hop aboard with Captain Brent for a fun-filled day of fishing, where you'll create memories that last a lifetime! The day will start early at the boat landing, where you'll get acquainted, then briefly go over some safety instruction and boat familiarization before getting on the water. After loading up and departing from the dock, you'll make your way out through the Charleston Harbor, where you'll see many historic landmarks including the Charleston Battery, Ft. Moultrie, and Ft. Sumter, to name just a few! Pushing out from the harbor, you'll head 10-20 miles into the Atlantic. Feel free to connect via Bluetooth to the onboard JL Audio sound system, queue up your favorite playlist, and settle in for an hour ride out to the fishing grounds. For nearshore trips, we will do some bottom fishing/reef fishing, targeting the likes of Snapper, Grouper, Cobia, Amberjack, King Mackerel, Barracuda, and more! You are welcome to get as involved as you would like, whether you'd rather lounge until the reel starts screaming, or keep your hand on the rod the whole time. Captain Brent can make it happen! Beyond superior service and luxurious amenities, Captain Brent also provides the best rods, reels, tackle, and bait you could possibly need for a successful day out on the water. Bottled water is provided as well as plenty of ice to keep your catch, food, and beverages cold. It is recommended that you bring a cooler to take fish home after the trip is over, but please leave it in your vehicle as the boat has sufficient onboard coolers and fish box storage. All you need to bring onboard is your favorite lunch, snacks, drinks, sun protection (NO SPRAY/AEROSOL SUNSCREEN PLEASE!), a towel, a camera, and good vibes! Otherwise, Captain Brent will take care of the rest to make the most of your Charleston nearshore adventure! Read More

Perfect. Great weather and Brent took advantage of it. Took us to multiple spots to try to find the fish until he found one that was successful. Brent worked very well with our kids...11 and 13 year old boys. He was good at teaching them tips and was eager and fun when action was happening!! He fit right in with our family and was a great guide and leader! The boat rides were fun and he went out of his way to show my son's the jellyball and anything else outside of standard fishing that came up. Loved it!!

Captain Brent did an awesome job on our charter! Captain Brent is all around good people and he went above and beyond to put us on some fish! At the end of the day not only did we have a blast but we left feeling like we had made a friend for life. We will 100 percent be coming back in the future. In our opinion there’s no one better than Captain Brent out there! Booking a trip with him was the best decision we could’ve made!
