Affinity Charters is proud to call Charleston, South Carolina home. Our guides have fished these waters for many years and look forward to guiding your group to the fish. Affinity Charters is owned and operated by Charleston, SC native Captain John Ward, Jr. He’s a full-time fishing guide who holds a 100-ton Masters License from the USCG, and has two current IGFA world records while fishing with customers. Captain John makes it his goal to provide a safe, productive, and memory-filled adventure on every single charter.

Charleston is surrounded by water, offering anglers a variety of hot spots to drop your lines. Affinity Charters can take your group of six to the backwaters, flats, rivers, harbors, bays, or nearby reefs. All trips are aboard vessels that are fishing machines, equipped with all of the latest equipment for successful saltwater fishing trips. Casting platforms and Poling platforms aboard the skiffs allow for great sight fishing. And all safety equipment is of course certified and registered with the United States Coast Guard; our guests’ safety is our top priority.

Captain John provides the newest and best rods and reels available for your fishing adventure. All tackle, bait, ice, fishing licenses, and photography are provided. You will want to pack snacks for the day, plenty of water, sunscreen, and hat. A light jacket or rain gear may also be required, depending on the weather.

Your Charleston fishing charter will have us targeting a variety of species including, but not limited to, Flounder, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Tripletail, Cobia, Black Drum, Black Seabass, and much more! If you have a specific catch in mind, just let your guide know before the trip, and we will work hard to customize your trip to your specification (depending on the season).

Captain John and Affinity Charters are dedicated to your complete satisfaction on your guided fishing trip in South Carolina. The area is great for fishing with tons of species and the waterways in which they live. Let us guide you to them… book today!
