Barrier Island Guide Service

Join Barrier Island Guide Service and Captain Steve Roff for a memorable angling adventure out of Georgetown, SC. Anglers of all skill levels and ages are welcome to come aboard and try their hand against a variety of inshore and nearshore species. Captain Steve will do his best to provide you with a trip that’s tailored to your particular fishing tastes.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 22’ Nautic Star bay boat, which is powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine. She comes with a full array of navigation electronics, as well as a livewell for storing bait in. With enough room for up to 6 anglers, feel free to take the whole family along for the ride.

Captain Steve specializes in fishing inshore and nearshore for Giant Tarpon, Bull Redfish, Seatrout, Sharks and many other species in a pristine 40,000 acre Marine Preserve. If you’ve never been on a Tarpon trip, it’s definitely something every angler should try at least once.

The price of any given trip will include rods, reels, and terminal tackle, as well as fish cleaning services after the trip. The fishing licenses are also included, so all you really need to do is bring a pair of polarized sunglasses, along with drinks or snacks if you’re so inclined. Come on down and don’t miss out on the fishing trip of a lifetime.
