Compass Rose Adventures

Center Street
Folly Beach SC, United States

Set a course with Compass Rose Adventures and experience some of the most fun fishing that the Lowcountry has to offer. Captain Asheton targets all types of inshore and nearshore species, and specializes in nearshore reef trips when the weather permits.

The fishing vessel is a spacious 21 ft Sea Pro bay boat. With plenty of seating, a large T-Top for shade, and high sides with a safety rail, this is a comfortable and secure vessel for anglers of all ages. The boat is very versatile: its shallow draft allows it to access the narrow creeks of the backcountry, while it is also a comfortable boat for nearshore cruising. There is a large ice box on board for you to keep your drinks cool throughout your trip.

Compass Rose Adventures give you the opportunity to choose between fishing inshore and nearshore aboard the Sea Pro. Inshore, you can expect to catch Redfish, Sheepshead, Trout, Flounder, Black Drum, and many types of Sharks, as well as the occasional Tarpon. At the nearshore reefs, the action is always hot: you can expect to catch all of the inshore species as well as King and Spanish Mackerel, Black Sea Bass, Triggerfish, Jacks, Spadefish, Cobia, larger Sharks and Bull Redfish.

All the rods, reels, and tackle you will need during your trip are provided, although you are welcome to bring your own gear if you prefer. Fishing licenses are also provided by the company. Compass Rose Adventures advise you bring your own drinks and snacks, as well as an icebox you can keep in your car so you can take your catch home with you at the end of the trip.

We went out with Asheton with Compass Rose Adventures in a group of four. The 5 hour AM trip on Sunday morning was the perfect opportunity for us to catch multiple species of fish. The boat and all of the equipment provided were above standard and well maintained. Captain Adams was very knowledgeable and passionate about the fishing and environment and he was very laid back and friendly while remaining productive and professional. I would recommend booking Compass Rose for a small group of family or friends of any age. I am confident if you book with them you will become a repeat customer.

Super nice relaxing time on the water. Captain Mike was super professional and knowledgeable about the area and the boat. I got to see the old lighthouse and stories about it’s history. Lots of birds and other wildlife along the cruise. Enjoyable evening. Looking forward to next time longer cruise.
