Come fishing for inshore and nearshore species, such as Red Drum, Cobia, Sharks, Trout, Black Sea Bass, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Tarpon and Bluefish.

Dolphin tours, island hopping, and Charleston Harbor cruises are also an option. Did we mention it’s your trip, so we’ll tailor it to your interests!

You’ll be fishing aboard a 17’ Mako Center Console that can take up to four anglers. Your fishing gear will be waiting for you, and if your trip requires it, the captain will also provide live bait.

The Charleston Harbor is a flourishing fishery, and you’ll find plenty of fun wherever you go. During your trip, you’ll fish inshore waters or up to 15 miles off the beach to fish artificial reefs and wrecks.

Captain Chris has USCG 50 Ton Masters license and is fully insured. He knows these waters well, and has been fishing them for nearly 30 years. He loves having kids onboard, and often goes fishing with his 11-year-old son who’s pretty soon going to be a first mate!

Captain Chris is flexible, and to suit your schedule, tides or weather, departure times may vary. If you have any questions about your trip, Captain Chris will gladly answer. If you want to give your kids a day to remember, just let Captain know their age and size so that he could prepare life jackets in right size.

All you need to bring is your friends, sunscreen, and favorite snacks + plenty of beverages! We take care of the rest. All licenses, tackle, bait, and ice/cooler/water are provided. Come experience Charleston from the water with Keel N Time Fishing!

My kids had a great first time salt water fishing trip with Captain Chris Keel. We caught reds, sea trout, sea bass, a grunt, a blow fish, and a few others. My kids had a blast!  Check out some of the pictures of our trip at the contacts tab at wwwgalileefishing.com. They will be posted on 8-1-17.

Had a great charter with Keel N Time. Caught 65 fish! Chris the guide was very knowledgeable, personable, and worked very hard to get us directly on top of structure. Would highly recommend!
