Book your trip with Captain Kurt of Aqua Excursions, and enjoy! Debating the cost? I did, and yet is was worth every dollar. Grandfather on a fixed income here, and it was the most satisfying money I have spent in a very long time. We, three generations (Father, son, and Grandson together) are going out again tomorrow Saturday. Thanks again, Captain Kurt. Trust me, you and yours will have a lot of fun together.

If you expect rough waters take bonine ahead of time. We had a thunderstorm rolling in and two of my kids that didn't take it got pretty seasick as the waters were rough. The ones that took it were fine and had no issues.

This was my first time ocean fishing so I don't have a good reference point. If you have a flexible schedule you my want to check with the captain to see when/if the fishing is good and schedule accordingly. I was limited with a two day window. A wind kicked up on first day that didn't allow us to get out on the ocean and the second day was supposed to be worse. We fished in the sound and did not have much luck, 2 small sharks.

Went fishing with Black Dog Fishing Charters on Julio 22, 2019
We booked with Black Dog Fishing Charter in Hilton Head with Captain Jon. I highly recommend this trip to anyone that wants a great day out on the water catching fish. Captain Jon was very knowledgeable on where to go so that we were successful in catching fish. Everything was supplied for us so there was no stress involved. A great experience for a family or individuals! The trip is well worth the money!

We had ad a great time! It was a successful day of catching fish that were in season. Do your research before planning your trip. I knew when I booked that it wasn't the right season for catching sharks or bigger fish. If that is your goal, plan your trip accordingly. The captain and the experience get 5 stars - the fishing in March gets 4 because it is off-season.

While Spring and Fall are probably better seasons for fishing, if you are taking your kids for the first time, and want a learning experience, there is nothing better than a trip off HHI - will always get Shark...

Don't expect anything other than being somewhere other than work, we caught 1 fish in the first 2 1/2 hours, when we moved to the final spot we had a fantastic time, everyone caught multiple sharks of substantial size.

Do a great deal of homework and be very clear of the trips expectations before leaving the dock. The captain explained to us the fish move and everything changes in April. Fishing can be terrible and we spent a lot of money for nothing.

I recommend offshore trips for more action.. Too many croakers but water temps may have been too high for larger fish. Dolphins must be cleaning out tidal creek.

There are a lot of sharks out there and catching fish you can eat can be very hit or miss. The good thing, is that you usually get something, even though it may not be exactly what you want.

Ask captains when is the best time to of year and time to go out fishing. Book your trip at the time he suggested for the best experience.

Plan ahead, be early, take long sleeve or rain jacket, plenty of water and a snack. Take a cooler full of beer so you can catch a buzz if you aren't catching fish! ?

Book way in advance if you intend on fishing during your time in Hilton Head. If you wait you will have very limited options.

Good experience. With it raining we didn't get to catch as many fish as expected.
