Welcome to Grandpa’s Charters where everyone’s fishing dreams come true!
We offer a wide variety of fishing, shrimping, crabbing, dolphin watching and clamming charters. See how local seafood is caught! On our Shrimp and Crab Charters, the captain pulls a small commercial-type shrimp or crab net behind the boat. Passengers get to sort the catch and examine the shrimp, fish and crabs that are harvested and they get to take home anything that’s of legal size.  This is a fantastic, hands-on experience for all ages and a great way to learn about life in the sea. Grandpa’s also offers inshore fishing, spear fishing, ocean wreck/bottom hole fishing, cobia fishing and clam digging charters.  On our clam digging trips, prepare to get wet! You will be jumping overboard in shallow water for this trip. The big boat stays at the dock and we will take a ride in a skiff to get to us where we need to go to do some good ole fashion clam diggin.  F/V Grandpa is also handicapped accessible.  All ages are welcomed and guaranteed to have a great time!
