Island Time Charters

Murrells Inlet SC, United States - Show map

Island Time Charters invites you for an unforgettable offshore adventure in the deep blue waters out of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. The offshore waters in this area offer a huge variety of fish species: from huge bottom dwellers to the beautiful pelagics, all you have to do is take your pick!

Captain Bryan Atkinson operates the charter and is more than happy to make your fishing dreams come true! He specializes in trolling for pelagic species like Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Blackfin Tuna, as well as bottom dropping for Grouper, Snapper, Black Seabass, Triggerfish, and more.

To target the fish, Captain Bryan will provide you rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial baits, a fishing license, and you will have a first mate on board, too. Together with the mate and the captain, your group will ride out comfortably, and enjoy a day on the open ocean.

The vessel you will fish from is a 44-foot Buddy Davis Carolina-style boat originally built in 1994 with a capacity for 6 guests. It is powered by twin 660 HP Caterpillar engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 26 knots. This big and comfortable vessel has a bed, a toilet, a kitchen with a fridge, air-conditioning, and a multimedia system with a TV all available for your enjoyment.

You will find the onboard fighting chair of great use when tackling the big game fish like Tuna; you’ll use the livewell for the bait, and the icebox for your catch. The boat also has outriggers used to maximize the catch when trolling, a GPS and a fishfinder for locating the fish, and all the safety equipment you might need.

Island Time Charters offers half and full day trips. They provide a friendly and courteous service while you enjoy a day catching your species of choice. Pack your lunch and some sunscreen and enjoy the sportfishing experience!

About the Captain

Bryan Atkinson
Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, United States
Member since May 2016
I spent most of my adult life on the ocean while serving in the Navy. When I wasn't repairing radar's and communications equipment, I qualified Master Helmsman. It was then I developed a passion for boating and being on the ocean. I have brought that Destroyer in and out of too many ports to name. After my sea duty was up, I realized I missed being on the ocean. I started fishing recreationally 7-8 years ago. I started participating in some local tournaments and found out that I was pretty good or lucky. I took my military training, countless days at sea, and I was able to obtain my 100 ton master credential. I have not looked back.

We met at the dock at 5am and Captain Bryan helped everyone load their gear on to the boat and started the morning off with a safety huddle and his expectations for the trip.  The plan was to spend the morning trolling around the Georgetown Hole for mahi, tuna and wahoo.  Man, did we find the wahoo.  Before lunch we had 4 wahoo in the boat with one fish going well north of 50lbs and made the call to try our luck with the bottom bite.  We managed to catch some vermilion snapper, scamp grouper and enough black sea bass to call it day and head back to the house.  This was a great trip with a professional crew.  The boat is a custom Buddy Davis express that had all of the creature comforts you could ask for out on the ocean, ran great and was an extremely comfortable platform to fish.  I would recommend these guys 5x over. Great trip and look forward to getting back out there soon!

We had a blast with Island time charters! Went after Mahi-mahi, wahoo and blackfin tuna. The captain had us on them all day. We were able to catch all 3 species. The crew was very helpful and easy to get along with. I’ve had the opportunity to fish on this boat a few times. One of which was hands down the best bottom fishing of my life. Boat is very comfortable and roomy. The tackle and equipment are always in perfect condition.  Kitchen and bathroom were very clean. If you want to go offshore with up to five of your friend, Island time charters is the way to go. These guys will put you on fish!!!
