Hilton Head Fishing Charter Boats

Live Oac's Fishing Charter Boats:

We offer a number of different Hilton Head fishing boats appropriate for different trips, from our comfortable SUV Deck Boats, to our shallow water skiffs, a classic 25' sport fishing boat or our flagship Freeman 29.

The best thing to do is ask us for advice on choosing the best fishing boat to match your group for the best fishing trip. Our fishing targets and techniques vary throughout the year and we want to provide the ideal experience for you.
  All Live Oac fishing charters are led by experienced professional fishing guides who are USCG licensed captains and include boat, fuel, bait, tackle, and space in an iced YETI cooler. No experience is necessary. Most fishing trips are private charters, but limited shared trips (split charters) are available. Pricing and max capacity varies by boat and trip type. We’re just a phone call away for advice and reservations.

“A Live One”

Freeman 29 Catamaran
Guided by Capt. Blair Willis
Experience one of Hilton Head’s fastest and softest riding charter fishing boats: A Live One™. This Freeman 29 has a huge 10’ beam with lots of space, more like you would expect on a 34’ deep-vee in comparison, thanks to this great catamaran design. Find out why there is a multi-year wait list to build a new boat from Freeman Boatworks…The ride is unbelievable!

A Live One™ is equipped with the latest gear and technology: Garmin sonar, radar, and autopilot, with Sirius XM satellite radio & offshore weather service.

The oversized t-top provides plenty of shade, and a “chaise lounge” style seat extends through the fore deck, along with console and aft seating. Plenty of comfortable space for the whole group.

She fishes anywhere from inshore to offshore and in between. Bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, she's ready to tackle just about anything.

A Live One™ is outfitted with high-end reels from SEiGLER, Shimano and Penn. Rods include Made-In-USA custom rods from Barrett Rods, Connley Fishing and Crafty One Customs.

*Full Day offshore trips on A Live One are our only fishing charters that are priced as a flat rate plus fuel. This allows for a greater variety of experiences to match angler’s needs and expectations. For example, high speed trolling for wahoo consumes significantly more fuel than bottom dropping at idle. Call Capt. Blair for more info on options for a full day offshore adventure.

25' Sport Fish Express
Guided by Capts. Travis Meissner & John Werner
This classic South Florida style charter fishing vessel offers plenty of shade and lots of room. The “Hammerhead” runs inshore and nearshore trips for up to 6 people.

Retro style meets modern technology as she’s been custom fit with a Yamaha F250 four stroke outboard clearing up the aft deck for plenty of fishing area, even when doubled up on fish.

We’ve updated her with a large live well so it’s perfect for live bait bottom fishing and trolling. For bottom fishing, we target sharks, red drum, black sea bass, whiting and more depending on the season. She’s also setup great for trolling and we target species like bluefish, spanish mackerel, kings, and more at different times of year.

Yellowfin 17 Skiff
