My sons and I had a great time fishing with Port City Fishing Charters!

Captain Zac is really easy going and an expert in the waters around downtown Charleston. He was patient with the kids and worked hard to make sure our trip was a success! We caught great fish and had a fun time on the boat. We are looking forward to returning to fish with Capt. Zac again.

Capt Zach put us on some nice inshore reds. He knows the water and worked hard to ensure we had a great day. We also picked a couple nice sheepshead for dinner.

Went out with Captain Zach , slow at first but he kept trying different spots , then everything broke loose, lol. He mentioned he had a spot for big ones and big ones were there. We caught 6 red bulls and 1 nice shark in less than a hour and half , best fishing day ever . I like the fact he keeps searching for fish, using spots he knows from his experience. Thank you for another great day , I will be back soon lol and can not spot telling folks and showing my pictures.

I booked a dolphin tour with this company for my family vacation and he did not show up. I received an email confirmation of time and location and emailed him after and thought we were all set. Morning of I emailed multiples times and called 6 times and he did not answer my call and never showed up.

Jty1220, Let me start off by sincerely apologizing for your poor experience with Port City Charters. There was some confusion on what time we had planned to run the harbor cruise for your family. I can assure you that this will never happen again, we send out a confirmation email with loads of information as soon as you book then email you once again 24 hours prior to your trip booked with us. I as the owner of the company invite you and your family up to 6 people out for a 90 minute harbor cruise on the house ($250 value). Please shoot me an email at PortCityCharters@gmail.com or give me a call at (843)560-4714 to set up time and date. I personally as the owner of the company will run the trip myself to insure to you that we can do better than your first experience with us. I cant apologize enough and hope to have you and your family out soon. Capt. Zachary Litchfield Owner/Guide

Captain Zack saved the day for us. Another local charter company we booked with never showed for our prepaid charter. I was scrambling with two little boys trying to keep up my promise to take them shark fishing. He booked us for after his morning charter and extended his work day just to help us out!!!!!!!he was so patient with my kids and came through on the shark promise!!!! We couldn’t be happier!!!!

Once again , great time ! This time we went shark fishing , in about 4 hours we had caught about 20 , all around 3 to 4 feet , which put up a great fight . Already have another trip planned with family next week for the same experience . If you are coming to Charleston or even if you live in the area , you can not go wrong booking a trip with Captain Zach , money well spent for the memories . I have said it before , but will say it again , Thank You !!! Captain Zach

Had a great morning out on the water with family and Captain Zach! He was very professional and knowledgeable! Our son had a huge smile on his face the whole time on the boat and especially reeling in a shark! We highly recommend him if you are looking for a great Captain and charter! Can’t wait to come back for a fall trip!

Zach does such an amazing job with his tours! He made sure we went to the best spots and my husband and I both caught several great fish. While we were waiting on the fish he answered all of our questions about fishing in the area and recommended several places around the city to visit! If you are wanting to catch some big fish and have a great time, this is the charter for you! We will definitely book with Zach the next time we come to Charleston!

I booked a shark fishing charter for my husbands birthday. We took our 13 year old daughter and 6 year old son. We had a great time and caught 4 sharks and 2 stingrays. Captain Zach was great and very knowledgeable about where to fish and the tides. My 6 year old had tons of questions and captain Zach was great about answering them and helping him.
