Deep Sea Fishing

Live Oac • 843-384-1414
One of the top rated things to do in Hilton Head is Deep Sea Fishing, and a highly regarded charter company is Live Oac. They offer deep sea fishing charters aboard a Freeman 29 high performance sport fishing boat called A Live One. Led by Live Oac founder Captain Blair Willis, a nearshore or offshore deep sea fishing trip can target a variety of fish species.

The vessel A Live One is equipped with the latest technology including gps, autopilot and radar, as well as high end fishing tackle from SEiGLER, Shimano, and Live Wire Tackle. You'll have the unique opportunity to ride on Hilton Head's only charter fishing Freeman, and one of only a handful in the world that are available for public charter. (Learn more about the few Freeman fishing charter boats available anywhere.)

A big advantage of A Live One is it's speed and comfortable ride. This boat travels so fast and so well you won't believe how quick you can get where you're going, but how easy the ride is. Freeman Boatworks has definitely earned its reputation for creating a "Magic Carpet Ride".

Another advantage of the boat's ride is it's ability to fish more distant locations with less travel time. Deep Sea Fishing trips are available from 3 hours to full day trips and everything in between.

Deep Sea Fishing aboard A Live One is offered exclusively by Live Oac • 843-384-1414 • www.LiveOac.com

Other Adventurous Things To Do in Hilton Head:

Visit Pinckney Island

Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge sits at the gateway to Hilton Head Island. Nestled between the mainland and HHI, this nature preserve consists of not only Pinckney Island, but also over a dozen other islands.

This combination of rich tidal wetlands and maritime forest provide a relatively untouched home for lots of wildlife.

Visitors by land may access only the main island (Pinckney), where a parking area allows access to nature trails where you can create your own adventure, exploring Pinckney Island by foot or by bicycle on your own.

The remaining islands of the Wildlife Refuge are off limits to humans, at least on the islands themselves. The best way to view these secluded areas is by boat.

Live Oac Outdoor Adventure Company offers boat excursions departing just across the creek from Pinckney on Hilton Head, that explore the waters in and around the Refuge. It's a great adventure "off the beaten path" and sure to hold some spectacular views of wildlife.

Boat Tours of Pinckney Island are offered by Live Oac • 843-384–1414

Take The Family Fishing

There are lots of options for inshore fishing in Hilton Head that make a great adventure for kids.

One of the most popular family fishing charters in Hilton Head is shark fishing for our abundant warm-water sharks. Small and mid-sized coastal shark species like Bonnetheads and Atlantic Sharpnose can be found inshore, causing the creeks in search of small bait fish like mullet. Most of these inshore sharks are in the 1 to 4 foot range, and can put up an exciting battle on light tackle in the hands of a young fisherman.

Adults can find it an equally exciting adventure, so if you're looking for things to do in Hilton Head for the whole family, a shark fishing charter is a great bet for a fun adventure.

Shark Fishing Charters are available from Live Oac • 843-384-1414

Dolphin Watching

An amazing thing about Hilton Head is that we have a population of local dolphins all year long. At least 200 or so Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin call Hilton Head Island home, and they're drawn to the area's perfect features: Relatively warm water year-round, plentiful baitfish and other food, and small protected waterways that are perfect for starting dolphin families.

There are dozens of places to get boat charter for dolphin watching, but one of our favorites is Live Oac Outdoor Adventure Company on Hilton Head Island. Located near the bridge that connects Hilton Head to the mainland, Live Oac's location offers easy access to some key locations for dolphin watching. They often see dolphin within a few minutes of leaving the dock and seldom have to journey far to encounter them.

Customize a dolphin watching trip with Live Oac, where you can mix and match activities like water sports or fishing charters with dolphin watching.
