Family Tradition Charters - Inshore

95 Ripley Point Drive
Charleston SC, United States

Family Tradition Charters welcomes you aboard for an inshore fishing adventure. Explore the waterways and marshes around Charleston on a relaxing cruise or exciting fishing adventure: whatever you want to achieve on your trip, Captain Adam and the rest of the team will work hard to make it happen.

Take in the sights of the Holy City aboard a spacious custom built center console boat. This 23’ vessel was made in Morehead City, North Carolina, specifically for fishing the warm inshore waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine, the boat can reach cruising speeds of up to 33 knots. This will give you plenty of time in the best fishing spots so you won’t waste a minute of your trip!

The boat is ideal for families - it can accommodate groups of up to six people and features a T-Top for shade from the sun. There is plenty of comfortable seating on board and the boat comes with dry storage for your belongings, as well as built-in coolers and a live well for your bait. It is also packed with features that will allow even the most experienced of anglers to get the most out of their trip: tournament grade Penn and Shimano reels and Star and Shimano rods are available for you to use on every trip.

Your inshore trip will take you fishing for a variety of fun and challenging local species. Stalk Redfish in shallow water, fight with a Shark on heavy tackle, hook up on a Speckled Trout, or catch a Sheepshead, Black Drum, Tarpon, or Black Seabass… there is a world of possibilities out there and Family Tradition Charters will make sure your day is full of excitement, whatever your skill level.

All the tackle, bait and fishing licenses you will need will be provided by the charter company. And while a 20% tip is customary, the crew will gladly accept whatever compensation you believe matches your experience.
