Join the family.
Family Tradition Charter provide high quality offshore and inshore fishing trips from Charleston, South Carolina. Whatever you are looking for, be it a luxury cruise or an action-packed offshore fishing adventure, their boat the Family Tradition is the one for you.
The Family Tradition is a 54 ft custom built Carolina Forbes that is powered by twin 1600 HP Caterpillar engines that were completely rebuilt in December 2014 and give the boat the speed and reliability you need for a successful offshore trip. The boat cruises at 30 mph, making it one of the fastest charter boats in the area, so you will be able to spend maximum time fishing. Equipped with 38 ft outriggers, a 130 pound class fighting chair and the highest quality marine electronics, it will give you a sport fishing experience to remember.
The boat’s interior is equally impressive. It has a built in mezzanine for your comfort, and sleeps four persons comfortably in its dual air conditioned cabin. The galley includes a microwave, refrigerator, and an on board ice machine, while there is a full sized head (marine bathroom) with a shower, and there are multiple entertainment options including a flat screen TV and stereo.
You will be fishing with top of the range Penn International reels for the most sought after game fish the east coast has to offer. Longer trips give you the opportunity to troll in waters up to 1200 ft deep for fish such as Blue and White Marlins, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi, while even short trips can be productive as you bottom fish in waters between 90 and 120 ft for Triggerfish, Red Snapper, King Mackerel, Grouper, and Amberjack, depending on the season.
All the necessary licenses and permits are supplied by the charter company so all you need to think about is bringing food and beverages for you and your group and suitable clothing for the conditions.

Went fishing on July 25, 2016
Breakfast that was advertised was not provided. Told by Captain 2 days prior that a 20% tip is expected-$400. 8 hour fishing trip was booked and paid for, turned out to be only 4 1/2 hours of fishing for $2400. Have been deep sea fishing for over 30 years with many different boats, always brought home enough fish to make the trip worth while, this time we were lucky to have 100#, and it was all sea bass and vermillon snapper. Crew cleaning fish (for that tip money) only fileted one side, scales and all left on other side. Would not recommend this company.
