Tidal Waters Guide Service is owned and operated by Captain Conner Bryant, a Carolina native. With an obsession for fishing since he was a young boy, he couldn't get enough of fishing local saltwater marshes, flats, creeks, as well as the open ocean. Only a few years later, he began working as a mate on local charter fishing boats, gaining more experience with both inshore and offshore fishing. He later enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard serving as a boatswain's mate. Beyond his Coast Guard career, Captain Conner also worked as a Marine Conservation Officer and continues to serve in the U.S. Coast Guard Reserves. The captain is passionate about salt water fishing and tries to help everyone experience it for themselves. Practicing what he preaches, his firm belief is that the only way to keep SC fisheries amazing is to introduce as many new anglers as possible to this incredible world.
