Hilton Head Island boasts some of the best inshore and offshore fishing in the nation and was recently named as the top destination for family fishing in South Carolina by FishingBooker. Whether you are an experienced angler or are new to sport fishing, a fishing charter with Captain Hook is one of the best ways to explore Hilton Head Islands waterways with guidance from experienced captains sure to show you a fishing trip that you will be talking about for years to come!

Captain Hook Party Fishing Boat is the largest and most comfortable party fishing boat on Hilton Head Island. At 70 ft.-long and 21 ft.-wide, it allows for larger parties that most other charters in the area cannot accommodate, making it great for the whole family or crew. In season, two trips are offered a day, an Offshore Fishing trip at 9 AM and Inshore Shark Fishing in the evenings at 5 PM.

And don’t worry about what to pack, Captain Hook fishing charters provides everything you need for the trip, including a galley on board serving hot and cold food and drink.

Hilton Head Island Capt. Hook Party Fishing Boat Crew Members

Captain Hook is family-owned and operated, serving over 150,000 Hilton Head Island visitors since 1996. Captain Brian Gale was born in Miami and raised in the keys, so fishing is in his blood. He had a fishing pole in his hands as soon as he could walk and once he knew how to steer, he was driving a boat. He has lived in Hilton Head since 1996 and has been a captain for 17 years with a 100 ton master license. His favorite fish to catch is a Blue Marlin but his favorite local fish to catch is a Black Drum. And with a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and an abundance of 5 star reviews, it shows that this is Captain Brian’s passion!

“Staff and captain were great! Captain Brian, Jason, Jay, and Shane were all very helpful, knowledgeable, and pleasant to be around. We had a great time on the outing and really enjoyed that we were able to stop and see a dolphin on our way back from fishing. Also, equipment was in good condition and the boat was in good shape. I would recommend that if you have the time that you should go out on the boat. Got to catch and cook some outstanding fish. Thanks for the great day guys!!!”- Nathan Richard, June 2018
