What if we are having fun and want to stay out?

If there is not another reservation directly after your scheduled booking, we will be glad to extend your trip. All you have to do is ask your captain!

Charleston is second to none when it comes to offshore fishing. The area is known for its incredible sailfish fishery, but kingfish, dolphin, wahoo, and sharks are also caught on a regular basis.

Our captains are true professionals with over 15 years experience. We believe that you will see and feel their shared passion to provide all our guests with the opportunity to land "THE BIG ONE" every time our boat leaves the dock!
