Location, Location, Location

  • Direct access to Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge waters from our dock at Hilton Head Harbor.
  • Our local dolphin population is unparalleled in the Lowcountry, with amazing dolphin activity year round.
  • Due to the excellent tree-protected waterways of the refuge, we seldom need to cancel trips due to wind & waves. We focus on inshore waters where you'll be most comfortable.
  • Easy access, with free parking and no gate fees. We're off Highway 278 near the mainland bridge.

First-Class Boats

  • Charter fishing boats vary according to the trip type. Each is specifically suited for the type of program it is selected for. From our shallow water skiffs to our 25’ Sportfish, we have something for you.
