Inshore Fishing in Hilton Head

Most of our Hilton Head fishing charters are inshore fishing trips. The inshore waters include the salt marsh tidal creeks, rivers, sounds (“bays”). These are generally calmer waters, always within sight of land, and where most of the action happens.

These are the areas accessible to us within a shorter trip of 4 hours or less, and we also do longer excursions that stay within the inshore waters.
