“I've fished with Captain Tim for several years. Always a great experience. Captain Tim works hard to get you on the fish, he knows his waters, and is a great host. We will be fishing with him twice more this year.”

— Trey Young, Facebook

“We fished two half days with Captain Kevin & had a great time! He is a super knowledgeable & outgoing guide. This area is an amazing ecosystem with a lot to offer. We caught eight different species of fish! Mrs. Capt. Tim gives excellent customer service! She is quick to respond to questions, & she even greeted us at the Fishcamp on 11th street to arrange for our fresh catch to be prepared for lunch."

— Jennifer A., TripAdvisor

“Capt Mears was AWESOME!! We caught a bunch of fish and he was great with my 10 year old son!! My son said it was the best day of the beach trip. We will be back to make more memories with Capt Mears and Cast Away Fishing Charter!!”

— Hank H., Tripadvisor

“Best charter we have ever had. Caught lots of fish. Capt. Tom Buskirk was extremely helpful and patient with our 10 year old twins. Would highly recommend this charter!”

— Myra L, Tripadvisor

“We had a fantastic inshore charter … the entire experience was wonderful from the booking to having the fish fileted for us to take home and serve for dinner. Cast Away Fishing was a pleasure to work with, the communication was very responsive and professional. We would definitely book with CAFC again and request Captain Kevin."

What to expect from Beaufort SC fly fishing trip:

Flood Tide Fishing

A flood tide is a larger than normal tide, pushing water onto short spartina grass flats, which normally gets water only during certain higher than normal tides.

Amazing Views of the Lowcountry Habitat

A flood tide creates an amazing habitat for an assortment of bait, particularly the mostly targeted Fiddler crab. In the Lowcountry, these flood tides provide an amazing opportunity for our fly fishing clients to experience the Lowcountry “on the fly”!

Cast Away’s fly fishing trips are relaxing. You don’t need to worry about a thing. Cast Away takes care of everything from fishing licenses, bait and equipment and even a cooler of ice with snacks and drinks. Want to cook what you catch? We’ll clean your fish for you.

“From my first contact with Mrs Captain Tim to saying good bye to our guide Kevin at the dock, Cast Away made for an excellent customer experience. They are truly easy to do business with…. show up and catch fish… they have it all covered. Kevin has a tremendous amount of knowledge about the local fishing and put my son and I onto our first redfish. A memorable day and we will definitely be back to fish with Cast Away again soon!”



“Great trip. Left early morning and found a few spots. Amazing scenery and great knowledge of local area. Fish were biting early. Cap’t Tim was relentless in searching for good areas.

Tom H.


We had a fun filled trip with Capt. Tim while visiting Hunting Island for spring break. We took our 11 and 8 year old boys out fishing. We saw many dolphins and eagles. The low country is truly beautiful. Capt. Tim put us on some redfish and the boys caught our dinner! So much fun and great memories were made!”

I would highly recommend Cast Away Charters if you’re in the Beaufort or Port Royal area. The day started out under marginal conditions at best with high winds, rough water and a tide that was higher than normal. Capt. Kevin Mears with his experience and knowledge was able to put us in the right spot and on the fish immediately. This was definitely the best charter service I’ve had in the last few years and I will book with them again when I’m in the area. A first class operation.”
