I have been going on different charters on the Island and the best experience I ever had is Black Skimmer and Captain Steve.
It always have been fun, Captain Steve is a veteran of the area and knows all the tricks and spots to always get what you are looking for. I can’t wait to go back again.
I only can recommend Black Skimmer if you want a real great authentic experience
In fishing.

Wouldn't book another trip. 4 hr charter after you catch the bait and 45 min ride to and from the only fishing spot we tried you one fish or should I say watch 6 poles that they throw out for you and catch the fish for you then hand you the pole. We did catch a couple tiny sharks and 2 very big stingrays but not a trip for somebody who actually likes to fish maybe okay for kids. The deck hand was good!

Our family of 6 (4 kids ages 17-23) booked a 5 hour fishing charter with Captain Steve and loved it. My kids were hoping to catch sharks and we caught lots of them, ranging in size from 12” to over 3 ft. Captain Steve was both friendly and funny. He has over 40 years of experience and very obviously loves what he does. We had a great time with Marco, the first mate, as well. Marco was incredibly patient with us non-fisherman, taught us a lot, and was just fun to spend the afternoon with. We highly recommend.

Captain Steve and his mate were good hosts, and although the mackerel weren't on the bite, they made sure we got some action shark fishing.

This is a relatively new outfit, but one that deserves to be at or near the top of the fishing tours available on Hilton Head.

Captain Steve is knowledgable about fishing, as well as local history and the flora and fauna, all of which makes the trip all the more enjoyable. On our trip, the first mate was his wife Patte, who is also knows her way around a boat and the island. A great team

I would suggest that you take advantage of the food offerings that Steve is able to bring along from the Hilton Head Social Bakery. An authentic French bakery on the Island. Yummy.

Fabulous food, great people, wonderful boat. Even some good fishing! What more could you ask.

You cannot miss this experience

Hi OldRocker - So happy to hear that your experience on Black Skimmer's inaugural trip! Thanks for posting your review. As you know, Capt. Steve has been charter fishing the local waterways for many moons and is looking forward to running trips on his new boat. Please join us on another fishing adventure next time you are on the island!
