We typically take a different charter out while at Hilton Head but it was full so we went with Capt Chris. Capt Chris is a great guy who knows his way around these waters and will definitely put you on the bite. Overall we caught more fish with Capt Chris than we have fishing with anyone else. As someone who has fished all over the world I highly recommend Cool Cat fishing as it’s definitely worth it.

Captain Chris (Bubba) was an amazing captain that knew exactly where to go to find what the kids wanted to catch. He was personable, fun, transparent, and the best part...gave the sarcasm and whining right back to my 13 and 10-year-old boys :) We had a blast with Chris and a great day of catching on the water. We will definitely schedule another trip when we're back in HH!

Chris is a great captain. I had gotten a late start booking my fishing charter, so some of the higher ranked charters on tripadvisor were already booked during our vacation. I am really glad that they were, because otherwise we would have never met Chris. He communicates very well. He will respond to your texts and return your calls as soon as he is available (onshore). He is an honest man. We had an 8 hour offshore trip scheduled and had high hopes of catching cobia. Chris was punctual and ready to go at 0730. The weather was looking ominous but we were still optimistic. 45 minutes into our trip, it was clear that we would be unable to travel offshore due to high winds and waves. At this juncture, Chris had a candid talk with us. He was brutally honest that he didn't think we would have a pleasurable experience fishing anywhere that particular day. Instead of attempting to salvage our trip, he gave us the option to come back another day. I greatly appreciated this. He could have made his money attempting to provide an average experience in subpar conditions. He could have easily taken our money and apologized for the bad conditions - because, hey, he can't control the weather. But he didn't do that. And for that reason I will be a lifetime customer. We returned several days later and had an amazing offshore trip. Chris is a workhorse. We had 4-5 lines in the water at all times. He worked tirelessly for us to catch fish. We fought 4-5 cobia (brought three to the boat and kept 2), multiple spades, and redfish. We hooked into several large sharks. Overall, the trip exceeded my expectations. He is full service. When we brought two large cobia back to shore, I asked where we could get them cleaned. He filleted, packaged and put them on ice for us. If you haven't had cobia, then you are missing out. We ate them sashimi style, seared and fried. I highly recommend searing them in butter - you won't be disappointed. Top of the line experience. I highly recommend Chris and plan to call him any time I return to HHI.

Captain Chris was awesome. Very knowledgeable and professional. Not to mention filled with laughs. We caught three large sharks on our morning trip and my fiancé and I loved every minute of it! Two black tips and tough bonnethead. Chris even had some remedies for some mild sea sickness. The sharks are treated humanely and released back to the sea. I highly recommend This particular shark fishing charter and captain.

Chris has been my go to for 3 years now. Me and my buddies or family come down and fish every single year. We have always caught a number of fish and he always accomidates us all. I like to fish for the big sharks so i catch 12ft+ tigers over a 1,000lb while others are catching Kings,AJ and many more. Best part outta all this is a friendship has came from it. If your looking for a trip look no father than Cpt Chris. Below are just a tiny bit of what we have caught.
