“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, the captain cleaned and cut the fish for us!”

— Christina Griffith, Google Review

“We make it a point to fish with Capt Tim every time we are in Beaufort, and he never lets us down. He is great company, always kind with instructions and guidance on how to cast, reel-in, etc., and he works so hard to get us to good spots where we get fish on the line. We’ve caught red drum, whiting, and sea trout with him over the years, always leaving with enough for dinner that night and specific instructions from him on how to cook! Highly recommend.”

— Catlan McCurdy, Google Review

“My son and I booked a trip to celebrate his birthday. Absolutely one of the best memories we will have for years to come. Capt Tim put us on fish and we had a blast. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a beautiful day on the water with a great Captain!”

“If you want to go “fishing” there’s lots of options. If you want to go “catching,” Cast Away is the answer. Captain Tim had a plan based on the weather and conditions. He told us if the plan works, will be tired of catching fish. Captain Tim delivered. We caught between 60 and 70 fish — a few of which were absolute whoppers. Captain Tim taught us about the area and environment we were fishing in and why we were using the equipment and methods … We will be booking again and are likely to make it twice a year.”

“We went out with Captain Kevin again for another wonderful time of fishing and stories. This trip was a Father’s Day gift from our son and sons in law, a perfect selection for my husband. Kevin is always a great guide. This was our fourth trip with him. We have always caught fish with Kevin and had a great time.”

“We went to Beaufort, SC to celebrate our 50th anniversary and decided to do a fishing trip with Cast Away Fishing Charter. We were met at the boat by Captain Tim and, as she calls herself, Mrs Captain Tim. We were so surprised that they greeted us with a beautiful anniversary card and sign on the boat welcoming us, it was so thoughtful of them. That started off a great day of fishing, we caught fish at every spot we visited and Captain Tim knows the waters ver well. Some of the fun was spotting bird and other marine life including ever present dolphin a d sea turtles. Thank you Captain Tim for a great day on the water, we will be back for more.”

“We were SO excited to travel back to one of our favorite family destinations, Beaufort, South Carolina. And of course one of the highlights is booking a family fishing charter with Cast Away … We spent a wonderful time with Captain Nat and we loved how attentive he was with the kids as well as taking care of us Bigger Kids going for the “big kahunas”. All in all the day was fantastic. We loved the boat, awesome fishing equipment and Captain Nate’s fun personality. Our entire family thanks you all again for making such long lasting memories. Until next year our friends…..God Bless!”
