Experience Kayak Fishing

Kayaks allow you to get to places that boats simply cannot, and very quietly as well. Our guides are not only skilled in the sport, they are passionate about it. Let them share their kayak fishing knowledge and experience with you. Outside Hilton Head Kayak Fishing excursions are limited to three guests and an interpretive naturalist guide.

Your three-hour fishing trip begins when you meet your guide. They  first introduce you to your vessel for the trip – a Hobie Mirage Pedal Drive Kayak. These kayaks use a unique pedaling system that allows you to move the boat while keeping your hands free to fish. Once you are comfortable on your Hobie, your guide leads you out on the water to the best fishing spot of the day. From there, the guide explains techniques for effectively fishing from the kayak. They help you cast off of your boat, target fish, and reel them in!

From Hilton Head, this trip is conducted in salt water marsh areas of the Broad Creek wildlife area and primarily targets Redfish.

From Palmetto Bluff, this trip is offered in the Inland Waterway Trails. Large Mouth Bass is the targeted species.

This relaxing day on the water is a great experience for new kayak anglers looking to get into the sport, or seasoned fisherman looking for new techniques and perspectives. Outside kayak fishing excursions include your guide, bait, tackle, and kayak rental

Additional Information

From Hilton Head: Target species on kayak fishing trips vary depending on the time of year. The primary salt-water target year-round is the redfish, also known as spot-tail bass, red drum, puppy drum, red bass, channel bass, and tropical sea bass. Spring and summer targets also include flounder, small sharks, trout and ladyfish. In fall and winter popular catches also include sheepshead and whiting. Guests over age 16 are asked to obtain a South Carolina Saltwater Fishing License prior to the trip. Our Hilton Head Kayak Fishing trips are scheduled daily around optimal tides and limited to three guests.
