Fins Up Adventure Charters

Looking to embark on an exciting, family-friendly angling adventure? Make sure that a trip with Fins Up Adventure Charters is at the top of your “To-do” list. With laid-back and friendly Captain Herb Rosenberg at the helm, you’ll be treated to an unforgettable trip to some of the area’s hottest fishing spots, as well as plenty of local tips and tricks. Come discover what the Lowcountry has to offer!

Capt. Herb developed his passion for fishing as a child, and his main motivation for running his own charter is driven by his love for the sport. He specializes in offering trips that are suitable for a wide variety of anglers, especially families and children. He loves seeing little ones hook their very first fish, and fall in love with angling just like he did! He’s also happy to show budding anglers of any age the ropes, and will have you reeling ‘em in like a pro in no time.

You’ll be casting off from Capt. Herb’s 22’ SeaPro center console, built to cruise a variety of fishing grounds. She can comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests, and you’ll usually have 4–5 lines in the water at the same time. On board, you’ll find top-quality navigational and safety gear, including life jackets in a variety of sizes. There’s a cooler for your catch, and additional storage for any snacks and drinks you’d like to bring – fishing is hungry work, after all!

Capt. Herb specializes in targeting that world-famous fish, the Shark – and you’ll find Blacktip, Bonnethead, and Bull varieties all on offer here. Although you’ll mainly be focusing on these notorious sea creatures, you’ll also have plenty of opportunity to hook tasty table fare such as Spanish Mackerel, Redfish, Flounder, Spotted Seatrout, and more. Capt. Herb prefers that you release Shark species, but you can keep the rest, and he’ll clean and bag them for you.

Your fishing equipment and license will be provided for you, so all that’s left is to come aboard Fins Up Adventure Charters for an unforgettable day on the water!

"I had enjoyed fishing all my life. Going on fishing charters as a child made me want to own and run my own charter fishing business one day, to share the experience with others." Captain Herb Rosenberg may only have decided to run his own charter in 2018, but thanks to his childhood love for fishing, he has plenty of angling experience under his belt! Before running his own charter, he also spent over a decade working as a captain for other charter operators, as well as ferry boats. One of his favorite parts of running his own charter is welcoming new anglers and little ones on board – Capt. Herb loves seeing kids hook their first catch and fall in love with fishing just like he did! As well as this, he's also a great lover of the outdoors, and loves introducing visitors to the beauty of South Carolina's Lowcountry.
