True Grits (Big, Bathroom & Shade)

(4) Going fast!
1 Shelter Cove Lane
Hilton Head Island SC, United State…

We are a 3 boat company.  True Grits, Gullah Gal and Honey B are all 35’ boats with the most comfort and room on the Island.

Bring the whole gang.  Mom, the kids, grandpa, all are welcome on our boat.  Hilton Head Island is a very family friendly island destination.  All our boats have lots of shade and clean restrooms.  At 35’, we are the second largest charter fishing boat on Hilton Head Island.  So there’s plenty of comfort.

All of our charters are private and we can accommodate from 1 to 6 people.  The US Coast Guard limits all private charters to 6 passengers unless the boat is specially equipped.

We can handle your bachelor party or Marine Deployment Party as well. (Paris Island is right next door). 

Please call Captain Jeff with any questions.

    This is our best trip in the summer. While many people choose the 4 hour trip, the extra hour that we get on this trip really makes a difference in the variety of fishing. We can troll for Mackerel and fish for sharks and have plenty of time to get the best of both worlds. You get a very good ocean eperience for the least amount of money.

Over 50 father of 2 daughters. Originally from Philadelphia and the Jersey Shore, I have lived on Hilton Head Island for 20 years. While not a native to HHI, I've been fishing salt water since I was in diapers. I'm a college educated guy who runs a runs a tight professional ship. I am a former corporate guy who worked with Merrill Lynch, CoreStates Bank (now Wachovia) and Commerce Bank (now TD Bank). We like families the best and often get three generations on the same trip. But we are ready to take out a bachelor party or group of Marine Drill Sergeants from Paris Island (which is right next door) as well. There is no age limit on our boats. They are three of the largest and most comfortable charter boats on Hilton Head Island. .

Very enjoyable experience with Captain Matt. It was a great experience all around.  He is extremely knowledgeable. Caught a lot of sharks and some fish. Would highly recommend True Grit.

Thank you, Sean.  We had a slow bite with difficult weather that day.  Your boys were troopers.

We did a 6 hour charter with Captain Jeff and his mate John and had a blast. We had our 10 year old grandson on the boat and they were really great with him. They are both very knowledgeable about the area and the fishing here. Made for an awesome day on the water. Highly recommend!!!
