Young Angler Trips

TailHunter specializes in charter fishing trips for families with young fishermen. We love introducing the sport of angling to children who have never, or rarely, picked up a fishing rod. Nothing makes our captain prouder than to watch a young angler holding up his or her first redfish, tarpon or shark.

At TailHunter Hilton Head, we want to inspire young anglers to embark upon a sport they can enjoy for their entire life. We also want to help create memories that will be treasured forever.
