Highly Recommend!!! This trip was even better than we imagined!! We definitely won’t ever go to anyone except Captain Shey. He was fun, very professional, and we absolutely loved this experience!

There was a communication gap between fish booker and Captain Shay.  His boat was down and if I had not called him a day before he said he would not have shown up as he never confirmed with fishbooker.  I received a confirmation from fishbooker so somewhere there was a disconnect.  I’m just glad it worked out as that would have been awful if the trip did not go as planned and the kids didnt get a chance to go fishing.

Some people you just can’t make happy no matter how hard you try. Yes the boat was down but I had access to a boat that was lent to me by a fellow captain. I was completely honest with my client about my situation and informed him that I had access to a larger boat and we would be able to run tip as he scheduled. All the client had to do was accept the fact that there was some communication breakdown and more that likely it was on my part but is wan’t anything that we couldn’t move past. It really wasn’t a big deal and we could have ran the trip on the scheduled day and time slot. Once I spoke to my client I had made arrangements to run the trip and all the client had to do was show up. He made the choice to cancel the trip and not to go fishing. If his kids didn’t go fishing on this vacation that is totally on him. We are only one of many options for a charter on Hilton Head. Fish Booker is just a very small portion of the trips I or most captains run. My recommendation for anyone booking a trip is to immediately have a conversation with your captain to understand all the variables involved with your fishing experience. Also when you book your trip well in advance call to confirm that everything is on schedule a day or 2 before your trip. You never know what the weather or conditions will be when you book your trip weeks or months in advance. I look out for my people and do everything I can to bring value to the experience.

Even though the weather was less than ideal with wind warnings posted Capt Shay got us out to a protected area where we were able to at least catch a few.  His area knowledge was invaluable in these rough conditions

We come down to Hilton Head frequently but have never done a fishing charter. The experience was great. Our captain made it a great time for our gang ages 11 to 74!

An Amazing Trip!!  We had a party of 6, some with experience and a couple who had never been on a charter before.  The Captain asked what type of fishing we wanted to do, and after explaining to him the experience level of the group and that I left it to his judgement, he did his best to ensure a great time.  He made sure that everyone caught fish and that there was little down time between catches.  Trip started at 8 A.M. and we were catching by 8:30. Very well mannered and professional.  As far as I am concerned, whenever I am in the area, Captain Shay will get my business.

To those of you who don’t have much experience with fishing , but would like to try going out and catching your own dinner or just for the sport of it, you need to call Captain Shay .  He is very knowledgeable , friendly, and most of all patient ,he has a clean, efficient boat for 4 to 6 people. I was the most experienced fisherman in our group ( which is not saying a lot )  LOL, but I wanted my wife and my cousin and his wife to experience inshore fishing for big Reds, Sea Trout , and anything else we could catch for dinner. Captain Shay put us right on them within 15 minutes of leaving the dock. Obviously I caught the first one in our group while the patient Captain Shay was showing my wife and company how to use their reel and bait their hooks. We caught a mess of fish , many of which we couldn’t keep because of size limits , but brought enough bigger ones back to have a great tasty fish fry last night over great wine and conversation about our experience. Thank you Captain Shay for a good fishing excursion
for non -fishermen . After 30 years of marriage , my wife now wants to go fishing again with me. I actually got a video of her cuddling the Black Drum she caught before releasing it. We come to Hilton Head once a year and now I have two new fishing buddies, my wife and Captain Shay of Island and Tides Charters

This was my first experience with Charter fishing. I took my twelve year old son and we caught fish the entire time. Captain Shay went out of his way to make this a fun and exciting trip from start to finish. I would definitely book another charter!
