Charleston Reel Adventures

Capt. Steven Forbes Mount Pleasant, SC Incorporated Licensed Insured

Charleston Reel Adventures is a laid-back charter services that treats you like a close friend instead of a client. We are here to show you the best time on the water as possible. From inshore sight fishing, shark tooth and shell hunting, or heading to the deep blue sea to catch mahi mahi. We can do anything you want, dependent on the season!

Your crew will fish aboard either the new 25ft Sportsman for inshore trip, or the new 30ft Sportsman for fishing nearshore or offshore with larger groups. Both are equipped with the best navigational electronics and top-rated safety gear. We ask that passengers be older than 3 years old so that we have the appropriate-sized life jackets prepared. Before your trip, please let our Captain & Crew know the age of all children coming aboard.

Captain Steven Forbes guides your group to a great day of Charleston fishing. Your private charter is provided with all tackle, bait, water, fishing licenses, and ice. We also offer filet service for small additional cost. You should bring sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, non-marking shoes, appropriate clothing for the weather conditions (such as light jacket or rain gear), hat, snacks, and a small waterproof bag (such as Ziplock bag) for your personal items. And don’t forget the camera!

Deep Sea Fishing in Charleston is an excursion like no other. We’ll fill your cooler with some of the best tasting fish of the sea. Captain Steven will help you target Snapper, Grouper, Black Seabass, Amberjacks, and Sharks with some bottom fishing. Or, try your hand at trolling to target Sailfish, Wahoo, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Marlin. The offshore trips are aboard the 30ft Center Console and we’ll travel 45-70 miles off the coast. These are great trips during the summer (during winter we stay more inshore).

Charleston Reel Adventures offers a variety of trips, from inshore to offshore, and 4-hour to 10-hour. Full day fishing trips are best for serious anglers. Book a full day inshore trip in the summer or fall to target Redfish. Charleston’s Redfish population is some of the best in the world, with Bull Reds growing as much as 40lbs! Full day offshore trips allows us to really maximize your fishing time, but please call ahead to check weather conditions.

South Carolina is a fantastic place to live and vacation. There’s so much to see and explore. Charleston Reel Adventures services the Charleston and Mount Pleasant areas, ready to show your group exactly where the fish are biting. We’re fishing year ‘round, so reserve your spot today and don’t miss out!
