“... Went with my 7 year old and my father in law, and Captain Tim went above and beyond to make sure my child enjoyed his time out on the water. We were able to catch a couple sea trout and catch views of a sea turtle and several dolphins. I'm already in the works to try and come back down to fish with Captain Tim! If you are in the area I would suggest you do the same!”
“This was our second trip with Capt Tim and it was even better than last time! From booking to the fishing trip itself is a first class experience. And we just scheduled a trip for Thanksgiving week. We are “hooked” on this company.”
“Had a great time and caught lots of fish, including an 8 pound red. The captain was attentive, engaged and friendly. I recommend this charter service and plan to use them again.”

“My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our fishing trip with Captain Joe @ Castaway Charters! Catching Redfish for the first time was exciting (& delicious!). But hanging with Joe, hearing his story, and listening to some quality jams out on the water was the best part. Thanks for the good times and the tight lines.... And thank you especially for your service CPT Joe!”

“Perfect for all ages! I went with my dad and two boys. 6 and 8. Captain Kevin was fantastic. It was good Friday so we needed some fish for dinner and boy did we get them. We are definitely going to use Cast Away again.”
“Best in the Lowcountry. 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 cannot say enough about what an amazing experience we had! Captain Kevin was the best. He put us at ease right away and was helpful, respectful, patient and fun. We took the “Catch and Cook” trip in conjunction with Fishcamp on 11th Street. We caught plenty for lunch and then some. The experience at Fishcamp was superb and left us impressed and full. We will definitely be back to fish with Cast Away!”
“My son really wanted to catch a shark. We were all nervous since we had never fished in the ocean before but our Captain was amazing! Captain Nations (Nat) put us at complete ease! He was super knowledgeable about the area and about the fish. He has a great personality and was funny too! When he called to set the time of our trip he asked what we wanted to catch. I told him about my son wanting to catch a shark and he truly delivered! My son caught 3 sharks! He was so happy! We had a great time.”
