Guided Fishing

Whitewater offers several types of guided fishing in the low country region including inshore, nearshore, offshore, fly fishing, and shark fishing. Explore the various waterways and discover the innumerable species that make the Santee River Basis a world-class angling destination with the help of Whitewater guides.

Inshore Fishing

The local inshore waters are teeming with game fish. The shallow mudflats, grass beds, and creeks provide a unique angling experience. The redfish, black drum, speckled sea trout, flounder, and sheepshead are abundant in the coastal waters between Charleston and Georgetown. Beginners and seasoned anglers are invited to explore the estuaries of this area. Inshore fishing offers big fish but minimizes the large waves and wind associated with offshore. These trips are great family trips as they also offer incredible scenery, and the occasional dolphin, manatee, turtles, and otter.

Nearshore Fishing

With shipwrecks, artificial reefs, and other geological structures littered just off the coast, trophy fish are plentiful. Charters are searching for Spanish mackerel, cobia, shark, spadefish, bull redfish, and the elusive South Carolina tarpon - all within view of the shore. Nearshore experiences including bottom fishing, jigging or trolling up to 10 miles from port.

Offshore Fishing

Offshore fishing, often referred to as deep sea fishing, takes you out in larger boats ranging from 10 to 45 miles out. This is big game fishing - anglers trolling can expect mahi mahi, wahoo, tuna, and sailfish. Guests seeking an offshore jigging experience can expect amberjack, red snapper, trigger fish, and grouper. Large groups are welcome for these multi-hour experiences.

Fly Fishing

The Charleston area creates the largest estuary on the east coast, resulting in countless opportunities for saltwater fly fishing. Bulls Bay and the Cape Romain National Seashore are the ideal locations for the committed fly fishermen and those new to the sport. Whitewatwer guides utilize a fleet of Hell’s Bay Skiffs- the ideal watercraft for two anglers and a guide. Guides will teach you casting techniques, ways to read the water, and how to match the hatch. All experience levels are welcome.
