The ultimate predator, sharks have captured the minds and attention of anglers world wide. In Hilton Head Island, SC we have sharks swimming in every body of water we fish in from 12 inches to 100 feet of water.

Shark fishing might be the most exhilarating experience for any angler at any age. Tale Hunter Charters pursue sharks in the shallows and the reefs. Reeling in the predator of the sea is exciting and interesting. Once landed a shark really opens up an opportunity for all to see how the shark acts and learn their feeding habits.

Our shark charters are done in the calm, clear waters of the Port Royal Sound in Hilton Head where the scenery and the fishing are amazing.
