DolphinShark™ Fishing Charter

Live Oac’s signature DolphinShark™ Fishing Charter combines two of Hilton Head visitors’ favorite things to do: dolphin watching and shark fishing!

Dolphins are here year round, but sharks are primarily a warm water fishery in Hilton Head, so we’re fishing from April to September for these toothy critters. This 4 hour charter gives us plenty of opportunity to see both. If you’re looking for a shorter trip, we do offer our 3 hour Family Shark Adventure™ Charter and even shorter options for Lil’ Anglers Fishing™ Charters. It’s not unusual to see dolphins on those fishing trips, either!

This is an inshore experience, so calmer waters are the norm, and it’s a great outing for just about all ages (5+).

The DolphinShark trip is available on any of our vessels, so we can match you with the best boat and guide for your group. It’s a private charter, so just you, your captain, and the dolphins & sharks!

The “Blacktip Shark” & “Whitetip Shark”

22' SUV Deck Boats
Live Oac pioneered the idea of the Family Shark Adventure™ aboard our SUV Deck Boats. With modified v-hulls for a great ride and comfortable cushioned seats & backrests, this is a real ”sit-back-and-relax" approach to fishing.

The Blacktip and Whitetip run daytime trips during “cooler” months and evenings during the heat of summer for the most enjoyable experience.

Capacity: Max 6 guests, but recommend 4 if “adult sized” for an optimum fishing experience.
We have multiple deck boats to accommodate larger groups, and we can fish together for a cohesive experience.
