The Reel Deal Charters
The team of fellow certified captains share their fishing knowledge and intimacy of local waterways with guests of The Reel Deal Charters. Carefully following the seasonal eco-system to make sure customers have access to biting fish, their expeditions whisk passengers away on inshore hunts for red drum and sunken pirate ships. Fleets also cruise the water banks and oyster beds at low tides.Fiberglass replicas of caught fish are also available, leaving the fish unharmed in the process.
The Reel Deal's captains also organize trips to search for blue crabs and fish for sharks during warmer months, and explore local beaches and marshes. They also narrate sightseeing tours that pass by Fort Sumter and the USS Yorktown or natural sights such as feasting pelicans and ospreys soaring overhead. All excursions take place aboard fleet of boats that each accommodates up to six passengers with licenses, tackle, and a variety of both live and artificial bait.
