“Great time for second year in a row!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We did this last year for the first time. So we deceided to go back. The Trip Advisor ratings were still very high.
We once again were not disappointed. We rented 2 boats for 2 hours each. One family went with Tucker and said only great things about him. We went with Travis for the second year in a row and he was great. He was always smiling and making sure everybody was having a good time. We saw tons of dolphins, tubed, and water skied.
The price is fair and despite a previous post, we didn't have any trouble locating it.
Don't miss this one.

“They're ranked high for good reason!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Our family, with 4 teenagers, had another great experience with Live Oac last week. Our first experience with them was a few years ago and we still talk about the fun we had on that trip.

This time we caught a couple 4 ft. sharks and several smaller ones in the first hour of an inshore fishing trip before bad weather cut our charter short. Captain Travis was a fun host and got us fish on the line very quickly. He also showed good judgement when the weather threatened and got us back to the dock before the storm arrived.

Live Oac was very accommodating in arranging a make up and let us choose from several options. There will definitely be a third time for us with Live Oac!

“Shark fishing with Live Oac”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We booked a shark fishing trip on 6/20/13 for 5:30 PM that night. When we arrived we were greated in a way that made me feel very welcome. There were 6 of us an our Captain (John) learned are names before we even boarded his boat. He made us feel very comfortable and explained alot about the area and what we could expect. He made the trip a blast and was very patient with a few of us non experienced fishermen. We had alot of success on our 3 hour trip and even had 2 really good size sharks get away. John, made this trip one of the high points of our first trip to Hilton Head. My family would highly reccomend the shark fishing with Live Oac, very professional and really alot of fun.

“Fun in the sun! What a personalized experience for our boys!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

A few years ago we did another boat ride with our boys (9 and 6) with Live Oac and it was great. This year was awesome because they were old enough to go tubing!! We called on a Thursday to book a Friday ride and they were very accommodating, as we had to change our time at the last minute on Friday. Josh was waiting for us in the parking lot when we arrived, which was a nice touch (maybe he could have Pina Coladas on a tray for us next time!). We booked a 2 hour boat ride and it was the perfect amount of time. An hour would have been too short. We started out by looking for dolphins and other creatures which was very educational and we saw a bunch of dolphins. The last hour we tubed and water-skied and it was GREAT! Scott was a friendly and informative captain. He knew all of the good areas to check out for dolphin, tubing, etc. He was very patient and kind to our boys (who are VERY active and talkative!). The boat was clean and well-equipped. They had cold water for us and juice boxes for the kids, which was appreciated. We felt safe on the boat and both Josh and Scott were very professional and courteous. We can't wait to come back!
