Carolina Fishing Adventures offers ½, ¾ and full day fishing charters targeting a variety of species depending on the season. We can accommodate anyone from beginners to seasoned anglers, young children to the young at heart. Our trips are primarily in the Broad River, but we’ll venture to the Hilton Head area if conditions are better there. We generally pick up at one of the two ramps listed below, but can trailer anywhere if it fits your schedule or fishing conditions better. Fish cleaning is available, but limited to just a couple for a celebration dinner after your trip. We as guides can’t keep a limit of fish everyday without stressing the population for future trips. While “no fish” days are rare, it does occasionally happen. Rest assured we’ll work as hard as possible to make sure you get some bites and even stay out beyond your scheduled time at no charge to try and make it happen. We want everyone to have a great time and enjoy all our coastal waters have to offer.
Carolina Fishing Charters is based right in between Beaufort and Hilton Head in South Carolina. Owned and operated by Capt. Shannon O’Quinn, We specialize in guided fishing trips, including the surrounding waters of Port Royal Sound, the Broad River, Beaufort, Fripp Island, and Hilton Head. Fishing is inshore and nearshore, the salt water rivers and marshes.
During marsh hen season in the fall we offer a cast and blast! Fish for a couple hours and when the tide gets high, pole the flats for a limit of marsh hen. Guns and ammo are not supplied and you will have to get a temporary hunting license from SCDNR. This can be worked into ½, 3/4 or full day trips. This one is not for beginners, bird hunting experience is required for safety.
For a truly unique and memorable fishing charter try our “Tailing Tide Trip”, it’s Shannon’s favorite. Here we wade the high tide flats surrounding Hilton Head, spotting the redfish as their tails break the water while they eat fiddler crabs in the marsh grass. We need a minimum of a 7.7” tide for this trip. Shannon can look up the tides and let you know when to schedule.
Our concentration is on Redfish and trout year round. Spring is a great time for a Hilton Head fishing charter, as Cobia are plentiful. During a summertime charter you’re likely to catch Tarpon and Jack Crevalle, and we can catch sharks any time! A fishing charter can be a day with the guys or a family outing. Any age or experience level is fine. We can work with your skill level: fly fish, walk the flats, use artificials or live bait. Even if you’ve never held a fishing rod, you can enjoy the thrill of reeling in a big one! Within DNR regulations, we can even clean some of your fish and package them for you to take home for your own fish fry!
If you’d rather enjoy the waters surrounding Hilton Head without fishing, we can take you on a dolphin tour or a sunset cruise. Bring your own wine or champagne and toast the setting sun. Disappearing island cruises are even available. You can book a private trip for your family, even the family dog, to enjoy a low tide sand bar trip. Bring a leash, just in case, but usually private space is available for running, swimming, and playing catch.

4 hour ½ day $400
6 hour ¾ day $475
8 hour full day $550
Private Dolphin or Sunset Cruise about 2 hrs for $200

Anglers should wear shoes with non marking soles and comfortable clothing appropriate for the weather. If you are booked for a “Tailing Tide Trip,” walking the high tide flats for redfish, bring water appropriate light weight shoes that can get muddy, such as Crocs. Keep in mind that showers can pop up quickly, so a hat and rain gear can be helpful. A jacket or sweatshirt may also be helpful, especially if you are on an early or late trip when the breeze on the water can be chilly. Polarized sunglasses are ideal, especially when sight fishing. We recommend sunscreen, but not in spray form as the aerosol marks the boat. We will provide water and ice, but you are welcome to bring beer (21 and over please), soft drinks, food, and whatever else you want (no illegal substances of course). You are welcome to use our cooler or bring your own, but remember the more you bring, the less room there is for fishing! Of course don’t forget your camera to record your adventures.
