Keen Eye Charters welcomes you to Seabrook Island, South Carolina. Embark on an enjoyable inshore or nearshore 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.

You’ll be fishing from a 24’ Pathfinder bay boat. It can carry up to 6 anglers and runs on a 250 HP Yamaha engine with a maximum cruising speed of 48 knots. The navigation technology it uses is comprised of modern GPS, fishfinder, and radio systems, so you’ll have no trouble locating the fish. There is also a livewell to supply you with live bait.

You and your team can chase King Mackerel, Tarpon, Hammerhead Shark, Cobia, Gag Grouper, and many other species. You’ll catch them in many different ways, both on light and heavy tackle. The techniques include bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, and even kite fishing.

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

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