Hilton Head Fishing Charters - Lots of Choices!

The waters surrounding Hilton Head are full of life. Strong tides flush water in and out of the sounds, rivers, and creeks. This constant motion replenishes the food supply in the form of microscopic plankton, bait fish like mullet and menhaden, and a variety of crustaceans such as shrimp and crabs. These feed a multitude of species that we fish for on a daily basis, year round. Live Oac's goal is to match you to the ideal fishing experience. We have options for all ages, experience levels, and interests. Explore some of the many fishing charters we offer, or call us for advice on what might fit you or your group best.

Since the time of the earliest known inhabitants of the Lowcountry, people have traveled here for the abundant fishing. We offer a variety of fishing opportunities that can be either a portion or the entire focus of your outing with Live Oac. From the serious angler wanting to sight cast to redfish, to the family seeking some fun on the water, we offer the best guided fishing in the Lowcountry.

Consider trying your hand at some castnetting during your dolphin tour. Turn a nature cruise into a nature experience by learning about crabbing in the Intracoastal Waterway. Such things are offered as part of our all-inclusive opportunity approach of custom adventures.

Looking for a fun family fishing experience that will create lifetime memories? Try some shark fishing for an amazing adventure of fun. Our shark fishing is family oriented (not "monster shark" oriented) and is intended to be as much an educational moment as it is an exciting journey.

Throughout most of the year, there are more “serious” inshore sport fishing options available. Some of the most popular targets include redfish, flounder, speckled trout, and even larger species like tarpon, cobia, jacks and more. Call us for details, and ask to speak to a fishing specialist who will be glad to match you with the appropriate type charter. Our guides are the best at what they do, and we're dedicated to showing you what makes the Hilton Head Island Lowcountry so special to us.
