Your trip to Charleston is not complete without a day on the water! Let Captain Mike be your guide to fish and fun while cruising the harbor and those skinny waters. Operating year round, some of the fish you can expect to hook include redfish, flounder, black drum, bluefish, speckled sea trout, ladyfish, sheepshead, and of course, sharks! Captain Mike is experienced in working with anglers of all ages and skill levels. From the avid angler to the total novice, we've got you covered. 

Captain Mike will meet you at the Charleston City Marina and show you to our vessel, a custom 18ft inshore flats boat. From there you will cruise the beautiful historic low country. All the necessary gear will be stocked and ready to go for your charter, including high quality and well maintained equipment, bait and artificials, fishing licenses, ice, bottled water and storage for any other beverages you should choose to bring. We strongly recommend you bring sunscreen, a hat and a lightweight long sleeved shirt for sun protection. 

To ensure the best fishing experience possible, all our departure times are tide dependent. You will be contacted within 24 hours of booking your charter via email to inform you of your departure time.

Charleston Boat Charters
We know about the amazing connection that can occur when man and fish collide in an epic battle of wills. Let us guide you in that memorable fight while catching every battle in HD with our GoPro!

The combination of warm gulf stream currents, low country fresh water drainage and mild winters create one of the most spectacular saltwater estuaries in the world, just outside of Charleston on James Island. The estuary in turn gives rise to huge populations of shrimp, crab and mullet, made vulnerable to larger prey by huge tidal swings. The result is one of the great inshore fisheries in North America. Redfish, speckled trout and flounder abound. The scenery is spectacular, the boat is comfortable, the guides are great and the fishing will provide a wonderful memory.
