    We had a great time with Adam! He was very knowledgeable about fishing in the area. It was a very tough day for fishing but we really enjoyed being on the river.

    Captain Darius gave us a fishing trip that far exceeded our expectations. We had a great fun filled outing. We are already talking about our next fishing trip and without a doubt he will be our Captain.

    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!!

    Our two boat trip was absolutely electric. First off, Capt. Chris' boat was perfect. For the price point, you'd be hard pressed to find a better fishing charter deal out of Charleston. The second boat in our group was equally as nice. Both boats were super comfortable, we just sat in the back on beanbags and drank beer as we raced out about 40 miles offshore. The guides gave us an in depth safety talk before taking off and took every safety precaution available, they definitely found a happy medium between fun and safety though. They were also very well informed about what was in/out of season, and the parameters for keeper fish. On first drop, we had 2 really nice red snapper hookups. Once that bite ran cold, we wasted no time, hopping around to multiple different locations, filling the cooler up with vermillion and other good eating fish. Even got a few 5+ foot sharks for the young'n that was with us. He was so stoked! We ran into a bit of weather but that didn't phase the guides, they had contingency plans to keep us busy. We elected to run deeper to avoid the thunderstorm that formed between us and the land, which meant we got a few extra hours of fishing (no complaints). The highlight of the trip was chumming up a cobia feeding frenzy right on the surface before we booked it back to the marina. Any time you can topwater fish for cobia, you're in for a treat. We almost landed a trophy cobia before a 8+ foot shark breached the surface and completely annihilated it about 20 feet off the back of the boat. It was so primal, none of us cared that we lost the trophy. I recommend these guys to anyone, beginners or lifetime anglers. Will definitely be using them again!

    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!

    The trip was excellent. Captain Griffin was a great guide and engaging. Shared a lot about fishing and the Charleston area. Absolutely looking forward to doing it again.
