    Absolutely Fantastic!! Captain Tim was a great Guide!!! Put us right on the fish and helped every step of the way. We caught so many we were getting exhausted just reeling them in!! Went past Fort Sumter and saw it from a totally new perspective. Great guy, great boat and fantastic experience! Marshview Fishing Charters Rock!!!

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Tim was great all through, from early communication/coordination to execution of our 4 hour charter for 4 guys. He showed us how he netted baitfish, then we set up on bull redfish. We were into them quickly and everyone in our party boated fish. Then we relocated because we wanted to try for shark and once again we got on them quickly, and again we all boated fish. Bargain plan, one good size ray was also caught. Highly recommend you try booking Captain Tim.
