Sea Island Recreation


Fishing.

What’s the catch.


The waterways that surround Sea Island offer some of the best year-round fishing on the east coast. And when your coast is home to more salt-water marsh than any surrounding state, you get nutrient-rich waters that make for plentiful fishing opportunities unique to Sea Island and nearby barrier islands. Thanks to our fleet of 8 customized fishing boats, we can fish anywhere from shallow water creeks off the island to 80 miles offshore in the Gulf Stream. Artificial and natural reef structures offer nonstop action throughout the year. Our full-time guides are on the water more than 300 days a year, focused on catching fish and customizing your experience on the water. Whether you want to introduce your children to fishing for the first time or are a world-class angler, Sea Island has a trip for you.
