Aqua Excursions

Experience the best fishing the Lowcountry has to offer as you cruise through the beautiful waters of Hilton Head Island. Conveniently based near all the Resorts, Aqua Excursions, and Captain Kurt Jeter, a Veteran United States Marine and Master Captain will ensure you have an enjoyable and productive day on the water.

Your fishing vessel for the day will be a 17’ Bulls Bay flats boat, affectionately known as the “Aquadisiac.” Powered by a 90 HP Yamaha outboard, the Aquadisiac has a max cruising speed of 30 knots, so you can rest assured you won’t be wasting any time getting to your fishing spot. Fully equipped with navigation, communication, and fish-finding electronics, along with all required safety equipment, the Aquadisiac has every feature you will need for a safe and bountiful day of fishing.

Captain Kurt specializes in a variety of styles of saltwater fishing and welcomes anglers of all skill levels. From the beginner to the pro angler, your Captain is committed to adapting to every client’s needs and goals. He uses only the best tackle, gear, and equipment, and cuts no corners to ensure you get your money’s worth.

Thanks to the diversity of fish that Hilton Head has to offer, you’ll have an opportunity to land numerous species including Hilton Head’s signature catch, the mighty Redfish. Fish the backwaters for big Reds, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Sheepshead, and Flounder, or ease into the nearshore waters and test your skill with the King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, the seasonal Cobia or Tarpon, or even a Shark.

Along with your fishing tackle, also included with each of these trips is your fishing license, plenty of live bait, bottled water, and drinks, and if you like, the crew will even clean your catch. All you’ll need to bring along is any food you desire, some sunscreen, and your sunglasses, and you’ll be ready for an experience you’ll never forget!

Let Aqua Excursions take you on an unforgettable journey!

Aqua Excursions is a dream-come-true for two brothers--Captain Kurt and Kevin Jeter. Born and raised on the beautiful Emerald Coast of Panama City Beach, Florida, the brothers learned to fish at an extremely early age. With year-round seasons and little or no bag limits "way back when," Kurt and Kevin gained their invaluable fishing experience on multitudes of offshore fish such as enormous Gag Grouper, Scamp, and Red Snapper, as well as inshore species like Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Redfish. Now, after over two decades of working in their professional occupations, fishing the Carolina Low Country and other areas only when work would allow, the brothers have finally come to understand the old saying, "choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." Come join us as we enjoy fishing the pristine waters in and around Hilton Head Island. We guarantee you won't regret it!
