Had a great trip!
Tyler M. with Johnston M. of Charleston, South Carolina
Five stars for sure! Tim was great from start to finish, had everything we needed, put us on the fish and went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our time catching fish. Would highly recommend, and one of the unusual things about Tim is, he is a Charleston native. Joe
Joe M. with Tim M. of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina
Very nice guy great fishing really knows what he’s doing put me on sharks right away great to find some one you can actually talk to and hold a conversation
Ryan F. with Dustin S. of Folly Beach, South Carolina
Adrian was just awesome! He kept us up to date on weather and was flexible with date/time to make sure we went out at the best time. He got there early to make sure we were all set with plenty of bait and extra rods and reels ready to go. He even had an extra hat and sunglasses for our 16 yo who forgot his. He knew the best fishing spots and locations at each spot. He could cast within inches of his intended target, was very knowledgeable about the fish, and helped us release the sting ray and gar we accidentally caught. Very pleasant, hard working and very experienced! You can’t go wrong with Adrian!
Cynthia B. with Adrian J. of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina
Captain Bentley and Patrick were awesome. They made the experience memorable, and we plan to make this a tradition. Great boat and great crew!!

hong T. with Bob U. of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina
We had a great time. Captain Adrian was knowledgeable and interactive. One of our best trips.
John A. with Adrian J. of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina
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!!
Carissa S. with Brent R. of Charleston, South Carolina
We had an incredible day fishing with Captain Adrian! He was awesome lining up the best time of day to fish ahead of time thru great communication. While we didn't expect to catch a bunch since we were early in the season, we caught a BUNCH of fish - completely lost count it was such a good day - all catch and release. Adrian did a great job keeping our lines in the water from baiting hooks to fixing a few snags to getting fish off the hooks. Adrian was awesome! Highly recommend!! What a great day...
Ben F. with Adrian J. of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina
Dustin was great! Not the most ideal day for fishing but he made it his goal for us to enjoy ourselves and catch fish. Is extremely knowledgeable about fishing. Would highly recommend.
Caroline N. with Dustin S. of Folly Beach, South Carolina
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!
