Book A Fishing Charter
Try your hand at catching dinner by taking a Myrtle Beach fishing charter! Fishing charters vary greatly based on where you go, how long you go out, and what type of fish you want to catch, so be sure to do your research ahead of time. Typically, guests can choose from a full day charter or a half-day trip and choose from inshore fishing, nearshore fishing, or offshore fishing. Guests can also catch everything from flounder, tuna, and mahi mahi, which are great for eating, or go for the sportfish like blue marlin or sailfish, which are extra fun to catch. If you are interested in a fishing charter, research boats that leave out of either Little River or Georgetown, as those are the two most popular departure points.
