    You'll be fishing the creeks and inlets looking for Redfish, Trout, Flounder, and sharks for starters. If the time of year is right, you'll find Tarpon and many other seasonal species. If your looking to catch “dinner” you need to book a offshore bottom fishing charter. I highly recommend keep you group size to 4 people or less.

    Nearshore fishing takes you a few miles offshore where you fish reefs, wrecks, and live bottom areas. You'll have the opportunity to catch a few of the same species of fish found inshore but you get a much greater variety of species out in the ocean. Most of the species are smaller reef fish. Sharks, Trout, Flounder and Seabass just to name a few. If your looking the catch “dinner” you need to book a offshore bottom fishing charter. I highly recommend keeping your group size to 4 people or less.

    You want dinner, you want bigger fish then this or the 8hr option is the trip. Good consistent action, if you want to catch/keep a lot of fish with the most variety. Fish live bottom areas in 60’-90’. I highly recommend keeping your group size to 4 people or less. Please talk to the captain regarding motion sickness if your concerned. You will be in a larger center console boat so there is always the possibility of some spray if the wind pick up, dress accordingly.

Keen Eye Charters welcomes you to Seabrook Island, South Carolina. Embark on an enjoyable inshore, nearshore or offshore fishing charter or a custom tour of your choice. Other than fishing, you can enjoy watching dolphins, do some shelling and crabbing, or engage in other fun activities. The subtropical climate offers certain fish species year-round but there are also many seasonal species that visit the waters depending on the season. Captain Chris Keen will advise you on what to target in accordance with the time of year, weather, and tides. Come catch some fish, have some laughs, and enjoy all that the Low Country has to offer on the water.

Inshore/Nearshore you’ll be fishing from a 24’ Pathfinder bay boat. The navigation technology it uses is comprised of modern GPS, fishfinder, so you’ll have no trouble locating the fish. There is also a livewell to supply you with live bait. Common species include sharks, redfish, sea trout, flounder, and more. Some species are seasonal. Two-hour charters for perfect for younger children. We can do some easy kid fishing, shark fishing, crab fishing plus you will see plenty of dolphins. If you select the late trip you get the added bonus of our beautiful sunsets.

Offshore you’ll be fishing from a 31’ Contender center console. The boat is equipped with twin 300hp Yamaha’s, radio systems, epib, and sonar systems. Common species include grouper, snapper, cobia, mahi, tuna, sailfish, marlin, and many more! Some species are seasonal.

Captain Chris will take care of all the fishing gear and licenses, so you should just bring your favorite food and drinks.

We get a lot of questions regarding the number of people we are allowed to take on the boat. Per the US Coast Guard regulation we are licensed to take up to 6 people (captain not included). For an optimal experience we highly
recommend groups of 4 anglers or less.

Come aboard and have a great experience on the water with Keen Eye Charters!
