Fish Call Charters offers charters ranging from 3 to 8 hours. Additional anglers can be added for an extra $75 per person. We also offer Harbor Tours for $100 per hour for up to 4 people (2hr minimum). The cheapest trip is what I call a "short trip". This is mostly for bonnethead sharks (older kids 6-96) or for pan-sized fish (younger kids 3-8). This is a great trip for kids. All the client needs to bring is whatever they want to eat and drink as well as a good attitude for an enjoyable day on the water. I also recommend polarized sunglasses, a hat, non-aerosol sunscreen, and rain gear. The Captain is normally tipped 15-20% of the charter cost if the clients have enjoyed themselves.

Deposit & Cancellation Policy

Reservations require a credit card or a $100 deposit to hold the date. Please email or call with credit card number, expiration date, security code, and billing zip code to reserve with credit card. Credit cards will not be charged unless a cancellation occurs. To reserve a date with a $100 deposit, please pay through PayPal below.

There is no charge for cancellation more than a week before trip. 50% charge for cancellation 7days to 24hrs before trip, and 100% charge for cancellation of 24hrs or less.

Other Policies

Not too many other polices but here they go> Number 1 Rule > HAVE FUN!!! Number 2 Rule > NO aerosol sunscreen. This stuff stains the fiberglass and cushions even if you apply before getting on the boat. Please ONLY use lotion type sunscreen, thank you. We ask that you not bring bottles on the boat unless you are super careful. Please wear shoes with none marking soles (white soles are best). Many of today's running shoes will scuff up the boat. Kids of all ages are welcome, but they count as an additional person no matter the age. You may keep a fish or two for dinner, but you must clean your own catch. I will help out the "fish cleaning impaired." I am a strong proponent of catch & release fishing, but I also enjoy eating fresh fish so my policy is CCC, "You Catch It, You Clean It, You Cook It." Of course, any fish kept must within State and Federal limits. Currently our redfish numbers are low so redfish will be catch and release only. Seatrout, flounder, sheepshead, black drum, spanish mackerel, and a few others can be kept for dinner.


The "FISH CALL" is kept on a jetdock at the Isle of Palms Marina, and unless we specify otherwise, all charters will leave from the Isle of Palms Marina. The Marina is located at 50 41st Ave, Isle of Palms, SC 29451. Try MapQuest below for driving directions. My slip is on the left next to the Fuel Dock. When you pull into the Marina, there will be a convience store (Marina Market) in front of you. Pull to the right of the store and park in the 15 minute parking. Your car will now be facing my boat. Just walk down on the dock to meet me under the American flag., and I'll give you a parking pass and show you where to park. Your parking fee is included in the charter costs so please wait for me to give you a pass. Please arrive about 10 minutes before our arranged charter time. The Marina Market is a fully stocked convience store with any food or drink you might need for our trip.
