Meet Your Captain

Captain James LaVanway is native to the South Carolina Lowcountry. He's a United States Certified Coast Guard Captain and expert Charleston Fishing Guide with over 30 years of experience, fishing both inshore and nearshore coast of the Charleston, SC area. Truly, he's a "reel" life fish finder.


Come join Captain James LaVanway for an exciting day of inshore fishing, nearshore fishing, saltwater fishing, or freshwater fishing on the beautiful coastal waters of Charleston, South Carolina. Whether you are looking to catch flounder, red drum (spot tail bass), trout, sheepshead, shark, or any other number of fish species, you won't be disappointed with your experience. We can even take you crabbing! From "Beginner" to "Pro," his charter can fully accommodate all experience levels and meet your guiding needs.

Not only can you enjoy a day of catching plenty of fish, but you will enjoy catching a glimpse of marine life in its natural habitat. It is not uncommon to see dolphins in the Charleston harbor! In summer months, the occasional loggerhead sea turtle has been known to make an appearance or two as well.


Capt James was soooo cool and fun! We were catching fish within 10 min! I could also tell that among his fellow fishermen, that he is considered the best! We lucked out to find him and will always charter with him!!
