Hilton Head Deep Sea Fishing with Live Oac

Deep Sea Fishing in Hilton Head Island

The term “Deep Sea” Fishing means different things to different people. The Inshore & Coastal waters around Hilton Head offer several relatively “deep” fishing spots (up to 70+ feet!), accessible within shorter half day trips. Offshore, there are reefs within the 20 mile range with similar depths (50-100 ft) and more diversity during certain seasons. These spots take more travel time but can often be worth the ride if you’re up for it!

If you’re wondering— We caught most of the the fish pictured here in less than 25 feet of water, near shore!

If you’re looking for distant offshore fishing, far out in the ocean and away from land, check out our Near Coastal and Offshore Fishing Charter information.

Live Oac offers many fishing opportunities. We promise to guide you in the right direction, and match the best fishing approach, boat & guide to fit your group. We’re serious about fishing, and serious about showing you a great time on the water.
