Sea Island Adventures

Sea Island Adventures is located in Port Royal and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters. Join aboard and spend a lovely day exploring Lowcountry waters.

Capt. Tommy is a Beaufort native with over 20 years of fishing experience. He will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. This involves 3 to 6-hour trips, mainly fishing for Sheepshead, Black Drum, Cobia, Whiting, Shark, Tarpon, Spotted Seatrout, and more, depending on the season and conditions on the day. On these trips, you can expect to use techniques such as light tackle, bottom fishing, fly fishing, and spinning.

Your fishing adventure starts on a 22’ Pathfinder bay boat that can safely take up to 5 anglers. It is powered by a quiet 200 HP Suzuki outboard and comes with a wireless trolling motor.

Quality Star rods, Penn fishing reels,  and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing. Your trip will include all the necessary fishing licenses for the day. The crew will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home at the end of the trip.

Guiding fishing trips grew from the captain's passion for fishing. When he started, he was teaching at elementary school and fishing every chance he had. He loves exploring the area's Lowcountry waters and the pure spontaneity of nature; you never know what will happen. The captain's favorite species of fish to chase is Redfish; he finds it an amazing, beautiful, and powerful fish that you can target year-round in the Lowcountry.
