Off Duty Charters

Capt. Richard Martinez Hilton Head Island, SC Incorporated Licensed Insured

At Off Duty Charters our goal is to make sure all guests have a great time on the water.  Captain Richard Martinez strives to ensure every angler has a fun-filled day of fishing on the waters surrounding beautiful Hilton Head Island.

Captain Richard began fishing as a young boy growing up in Miami, Florida.  Some of his fondest memories are of learning how to tie fishing knots with his dad while his friends were out riding their bikes.  He brings this passion for fishing to every trip.  He takes a lot of pride in what he does and strives to make sure every guest is satisfied with their fishing adventure.

Your Off Duty Charters fishing excursion will take place aboard a 24 foot Sea Fox center console boat with plenty of room for up to six anglers to fish comfortably.  It comes equipped with a Suzuki 200HP engine along with modern electronics, safety gear, and an array of rods, reel and tackle.  You have a choice of techniques depending on the species you are targeting. Captain Richard’s preferred technique is live bait on the bottom with light to medium tackle.  He also uses spinning and lures.

Captain Richard and Off Duty Charters specialize in Nearshore and Inshore fishing trips in Port Royal and Calibogue Sound.  They also offer action-packed shark fishing trips for those wishing to test their might against these majestic creatures.  While on your fishing adventure you will be targeting species such as Redfish, Sheepshead, Cobia, King Mackerel, Flounder, Bluefish and various shark species such as Black Tip and Bonnethead, among others.  All trips include rods, reels, tackle, lures, fresh or live bait, and your fishing license.  Captain Richard also provides a cooler and ice.  All you need to bring are your camera, snacks, drinks and your excitement for a great day on the water.  Please note that all Shark trips are catch and release only.

At Off Duty Charters anglers of all ages and experience levels are welcome! Join Captain Richard today and start making memories to last a lifetime.
