I typically do 2-3 charters a year, and this was a great one, highly recommend. We booked a 6 hour trip over Spring Break, and had a great time. We were on fish the whole day and caught several big ones. Michael does a great job and runs a first class charter and does a spectacular job preparing your meat... More

My family had a great trip with Michael and first mate Kevin. We caught Blue Fish, Lady Fish, an 8' Lemon Shark and a Saw-Tooth Shark. The boat was beautiful and had plenty of room for all of us. Both Michael and Kevin were very helpful and knowledgeable about fishing and about the waters of Hilton Head. Once we were... More

My wife and I took a 6 hour charter with Captain Michael and 1st mate Ben. It was a great trip. We spent a lot of time on reel and caught some beautiful fish. I caught my first tarpon and I'm hooked. Thank you for a great day and can't wait to hit blue water in Dec.

We booked with Michael last minute because some of our other plans fell through. He was recommended by one of the other captains, and we had a great time. He asked us what type of fishing we would like to do, and we wound up fishing for tarpon and sharks. Both Michael and his first mate Kevin were great -... More

What a great day on the water! We caught somewhere between 15 and 18 big bull red fish, with the largest coming in at 28 pounds. We also caught a 6-ft bull shark and hooked up a large barracuda and Spanish mackerel. Unfortunately, the cuda and mackerel got off before we could get them in the boat. Captain Perry was... More

We arrived promptly at the scheduled time. The charter boat was easy to find and Captain Mike was ready to go as soon as we arrived. Our group was only two passengers (and amateur fishermen), but the boat could easily fit a much bigger group. The captain was friendly and very knowledgeable of the area in which we were fishing...

Captain Michael and first mate John took out my family business as a fun activity for the staff. I cannot say enough about the kindness, patience and professionalism of this boat. Gave lessons on reeling to the youngest children and how to hold the fish, while we were able to hook some monsters for the adults on the boat. Epic... More

Set up a shark fishing charter with Captain Michael Perry. Very easy to contact him via phone as he is very busy fishing. Captain Mike was able to squeeze us in to fish on Thursday night, 5/22/14 530p-830p. Boy did we have a great time! We all met Captain Mike on the pier (by the big red sailboat) and he... More

Our group experienced a great day fishing with Capt. Michael Perry! The weather was perfect and the seas were calm. Capt. Michael caught his bait on his first attempt, and we were on our way. He knew just where the fish would be for our 5 hour trip. We caught several species, including sharks, red drum and sea bass. While... More
