The Outdoorsman’s Guide to Charleston

The picturesque Lowcountry offers visitors to Charleston an opportunity to explore one of the world’s most complex eco-systems. From the Atlantic Ocean with its abundant estuaries to the surrounding low-lying marshlands, Charleston is home to one of the most diverse and naturally beautiful landscapes in the country.

Get On the Water
Charleston offers arguably the best ocean, tidal and freshwater fishing of any kind. Spend an afternoon of inshore fishing on the plentiful shallow waters and coastal estuaries of the Lowcountry, teeming with a variety of game fish including redfish, flounder, black drum and even sharks. Or set out for a full-day of deep sea fishing. Providing a challenging adventure even for experienced anglers, catch marlin, tuna, sailfish, mahi-mahi, wahoo and many other species. Charters can be arranged for year-round fishing.
