“Kevin was very personable, passionate about his responsibilities as captain and guide to make this trip safe, memorable and successful half day charter! My son and I spent 5 hours fishing from my own boat and caught zero fish. Today we caught in excess of 30. My wife expected pictures but we didn't think of taking any because we were so busy talking with our captain learning everything we could. He's been fishing these water since he was a kid and knows where to go under a variety of conditions. I highly recommend booking a trip with him!”

“Got to go out with my father in law and have the best time ever, we saw so much wildlife and the captain was incredibly knowledgeable and a wonderful professional. Would recommend to everyone.”

— Robert Pugaczewski, Google

“This was our second (and third) trips with Cast Away Fishing Charters. As expected, they were amazing. Both captains did everything they could to make sure we were having a great time. Capt. Kevin was great, so much fun and worked so hard to help us find fish. We had an unexpected emergency during one trip and Capt. Tim was amazing! He called to check on us ~ just like family. Don't waste your time on other charter services. We won't!!”

“We absolutely loved working with Captain and Mrs. Tim. The boat was our favorite part of our trip in Beaufort. They were incredibly accommodating and discrete while working with a high profile client. On top of that, they were knowledgeable about the area and offered endless insight into the best places to go and see. Captain Tim was even able to have the boat surrounded by a school of dolphins before the day was over. You won't regret booking with this wonderful company. We are so grateful we found them!”

“Our captain was incredible on our charter today. These guys truly care about customer service and satisfaction and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time from the moment we called. They cater to your every need throughout the booking process and charter! Very helpful, put us right on each fish and shared in the excitement with each catch. If we ever return to the area, no doubt these are the guys we will be fishing with!”

“Went out on a chillier day in February, this trip exceeded expectations. From preparing a cooler for us, to getting us in the best spots to catch some fish-it was just exceptional . Would highly recommend. Captain Kevin was knowledgeable, professional and extremely friendly. Mrs captain Tim got back to us immediately. Customer service was top notch. If we make it back to Beaufort, we will be sure to book again.”
— Rippin Lips, TripAdvisor

“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., Tripadvisor

“Captain Tim had us catching fish at our very first spot. He taught me some invaluable tips and tricks that I will be able to definitely use in the future. We caught over five different types of fish throughout the day, simply said, I had a blast!!”
— David, 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!”
