“My two boys and I had a great fishing experience with Captain Tommy! Captain Tommy was so patient and kind with all of us. We caught several fish and a great time was had by all!”

— Beshears Crew, TripAdvisor

“My family did this as one last outing with our son before he left for college. What an amazing experience! Capt. Kevin Mears is outstanding! We were on fish nearly all day! We caught many Black Drum and even got a Tarpon! The Captain is supremely knowledgeable and just an all around great guy! I simply cannot express enough how much my family enjoyed this except to say, our trip wasn't even done and my wife and I were already planning the next trip! See you guys and Capt. Mears again for Cobia!”

— Waylon G, TripAdvisor

“Captain Tim is one of the best fishing guides I have ever met. He goes above and beyond to make certain you have a wonderful trip. I highly recommend his services when you are in the Beaufort South Carolina area.”

— George G, TripAdvisor

“My family and I went on an excursion the day after Thanksgiving with Captain Tommy. He was a real pleasure to share the day with and his knowledge of the area was without a doubt top notch. Within seconds of our first cast I caught two redfish and my Dad caught one of his own thanks to Captain Tommy's guidance and experience! We had a fantastic day and we owe it all to him. Highly recommend the experience to anyone looking to have a memorable day on the water.”

“Booked Castaway Charters while down for my sons Marine graduation. Hunter was our captain and I can’t begin to thank him for the day we had on the water. He put us on fish all day long and baited every hook without missing a beat. His advice and knowledge of the water was fantastic and we were beyond impressed. My younger son said he’ll remember this trip for the rest of his life and to me that is priceless. Thanks again to Hunter and Castaway for an amazing trip.”

“From booking to getting off the fishing charter nothing but great service and people! Everyone was professional and friendly. My 2 teens had a great time with Captain Mears! He was kind enough to offer up his extra jackets to them and I was comfortable knowing they were out on the water with a true professional! They caught 23 fish! Thank you we will be booking this experience again next time we are in town!”

“First time in Beaufort and we had a great time on the water, inshore fishing! Hunter was very knowledgeable and knew where the fish would be biting. My ten year old daughter loved the experience too- caught the biggest fish! After the trip, Hunter cleaned and cut the fish for us. Would highly recommend this group- especially Hunter!”

“Captain Tim and the guys at castaway fishing charters have an abundance of local knowledge and it shows. You’ll get to fish in spots that other companies won’t take you or just plain don’t know about. You’ll get a chance to learn about the area and environment that you’re fishing in and why they are using the equipment in methods that they use … We will be booking with castaway twice a year from here forth.

How do you accommodate larger parties?
Don’t miss our “Cast Away Fishin’ Tourney” — which includes multiple boats and camera-worthy moments with a certificate and prize to the winning team (not to mention bragging rights).
What species of fish should we expect?
Since our 24-foot vessels can maneuver in shallow flats of Beaufort SC, fishing charter hauls can include Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Tarpon, Cobia and other nearshore and inshore species. No matter the fishing experience, you can expect to reel in some amazing trophy fish!
Do we need to get a fishing license before we book?
No. The only thing you need to bring is yourself!

In addition to supplying the fishing license and all of the legally required gear, Cast Away Fishing Charter has all of the required insurance and licensure — including USCG Captain’s license and commercial marine insurance to protect you and your family while on the water.

What is your policy on cancellations?

If the weather is bad on the day of your scheduled Beaufort SC fishing trip, we will let you know if it’s too dangerous to be on the water. The entire Cast Away crew keeps their eyes on the weather. Our Beaufort SC fishing trips are focused on delivering the best fishing experience for you and your crew. 

We will accommodate your schedule for a relaxing and fun day on the water. If you have to reschedule, that’s no problem. We can move your reservation dates. However, we enforce a strict cancellation policy because we are a small business with a high demand for our Beaufort SC fishing charters.
