 All charters depart from the North End Charter Fleet Dock behind the Chart House Restaurant into fast access deep waters of Port Royal Sound, providing more time for fishing & less time riding. Our location is only 15 minutes from inshore and nearshore fishing in Port Royal Sound and the Broad River.

Redfish, tarpon, sharks, cobia, trout, sheepshead and mackerals are available in these pristine waters at different times of the year.  This estuary is protected by state and federal laws and the Port Royal Sound Foundation.   These waters and marshes are among the cleanest and most productive in the world.  Oysters, clams and shrimp abound.

Large schools of baitfish arrive in early spring and the hungry predators show up with them.  Fifteen to twenty species of shark arrive in May.  These include tiger, hammerhead, bull, lemon and blacktip just to name a few.  Port Royal Sound and the Broad River are the best places on the east coast to catch Cobia, Tarpon and Big Redfish. Get ready for plenty of great fishing excitement.
