D&S Charters

1880 Andell Bluff Boulevard
Seabrook Island SC, United States

D & S Charters is designed to make your fishing dreams come true in the beautiful and species-rich waters of Seabrook and Kiawah Islands in South Carolina. The charter is run by a passionate fisherman, Captain Derrell Crabtree who has fished the world over but has realized that the best fishing is done right here, in his home waters. He loves taking guests out, no matter if you are an individual or a group, he will welcome you as a friend and put you on fish.

His boat is a 21 foot Triton center console, which was originally built in 2013 and can accommodate up to 6 guests. It is powered by a 200 HP Yamaha Four Stroke engine with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots. This is a steady and fast vessel which is bound to get you to the best fishing spots easily. You will locate them using an onboard fishfinder and a GPS system. The boat also has a VHF radio and a radar, as well as all the safety equipment such as life jackets, fire extinguishers, flares, a first aid kit, and a CPR trained crew.

D & S Charters will take you fishing in the salt marshes and estuaries in the Kiawah and Seabrook Islands, which are located just 20 miles from Charleston, famous for its Caribbean and African influence in cuisine including all sorts of locally sourced fish species. Targeted species will include Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, Black Drum, Cobia, King Mackerel, Ladyfish, Black Seabass, Spanish Mackerel, Spadefish, Tarpon and Blacktip Shark. Captain Derrell will provide you with brand new rods, reels, and tackle - all purchased in 2016. You will also have live and artificial baits, and a Fishing License, as well as cleaning and filleting of your catch at the end of your trip. Captain will also be able to recommend a good restaurant that will prepare your catch as a local delicacy.

About the Captain

I grew up fishing in the bay's and rivers sourounding Charleston, SC. I have spent my entire life fishing for fun, competition and as a job. I have fished in many exotic locations but by far my favorite place to fish is right here in the South Carolina low country. I love showing my guest what our waters around Kiawah and Seabrook islands have to offer.
