Legacy Charters

Legacy Charters is a family-owned business, first started by Captain Mike Masiero and his father. Capt. Mike has passed the torch onto his two sons, Capt. Kyle and Capt. Mike Jr.

Their boat is “The Kraken,” a 28’ Bertram that’s powered by twin 260 HP Ford engines and completely restored in 2018.
NO DIESEL SMELL or FUMES to bother you on this boat!
This is a spacious vessel, sporting a full walk-in cabin with a bathroom. Having enough room for no less than 6 anglers, she’s a great choice if you’re looking to bring the whole family along for the ride.

Little River is unlike any other port out of the Grand Strand. It offers a wide variety of fish species both inshore and offshore, making it perfect for both longer and shorter trips out. No matter if you’re looking to land some delicious bottom feeders or chase after huge sharks, you’ll have a great time of it! Offshore waters are home to a variety of gamefish like Mahi Mahi, and Sailfish too.

The price of any given trip includes all the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for the day. Not only that but whatever you catch will be cleaned and bagged after the trip at no extra charge. The crew will work hard to make sure you have a memorable time on the water, and 15-20% gratuity is very much appreciated.

Hop aboard The Kraken and get ready for an unforgettable fishing adventure. Don’t be surprised if you get hooked for life!

I started fishing as a kid with my father, I grew up in New Jersey fishing the Jersey Shore. We ran our charter business out of Barnegat Inlet for 20 years from there we did a number of vessel deliveries up and down the East Coast and overseas. We moved our business to South Carolina 2010. I have passed on my fishing legacy to my two sons Capt Mike Jr and Capt Kyle who both like myself are 100ton USCG Licensed Captains.
