Salty Tide Charters LLC is a fishing guide service with over 13 years of experience, specializing in nearshore and offshore fishing off the coast of Charleston, SC. Salty Tide Charters is a business dedicated to providing great hospitality, excellent service, and sharing their passion for fishing with others. Captain TJ Deveaux will take good care of you and he’ll help you make some life-long memories on the water.

The boat you’ll be fishing from is “Just Right” - a 26’ center console Mako from 2008. This battlewagon designed for hardcore offshore fishing can accommodate groups of 6 anglers per trip. It is fitted with a twin Suzuki V6 3.6 that can reach top speeds of up to 46 knots Just Right offers various fishing amenities for your optimal fishing experience, like outriggers, downriggers, and fishfinding equipment.

This charter specializes in nearshore and offshore areas which include wreck and reef locations. If you want to stock up your fridge with delicious fish you can target a few different species from Grouper to Mahi Mahi, and Blackfin Tuna. More adventurous anglers can test their skills against Wahoo and Blue Marlin. You can go after these beauties using light and heavy tackle.

Families with children are welcome. The charter covers your South Carolina fishing license, and also all the fishing gear, lures, and baits will are provided. The crew offers drinks for refreshment and you can use the onboard bathroom. In case you need additional help a first mate is available and they would appreciate a tip. It’s up to you whether you keep your catch or release it, and the crew will help you clean it. A small fee might be in order.

Growing up in Goose Creek, I am a Stratford alumnus c/o 2015. I played 3 sports and traveled the country for one of them. Sports kept me busy, but I always made sure to make plenty of time for fishing and hunting. My dad took me fishing at a young age and when I hooked my first fish, it hooked me into a new found passion.
