Hilton Head Charter Boat Fleet

Our goal is to provide the best boating experience in the Hilton Head Lowcountry, and to do so we have a variety of well designed charter boats. Several SUV Deck Boats form the core of our fleet. As the name implies, these are the Sport Utility Vehicles of the water: comfortable, spacious, and highly useful for activities like cruising, watersports, and inshore fishing.
In addition to our flagship SUV Deck Boats, we have a few more specialized fishing boats, two Skiffs, and a larger Sportfishing Boat. The Skiffs are among the best of their breed, each suited for particular types of fishing in the shallow water creeks on the inshore side of Hilton Head, or even the open water of Port Royal and Calibogue Sounds. The larger Sportfish is our largest charter fishing boat, with lots of space, plenty of shade, and the ability to run inshore and further offshore for true “deep sea” fishing.

Learn more about our fleet below, and feel free to ask us for advice on choosing the ideal boat for your group. With the wide range of adventure activities that Live Oac offers, the great variety of waters around Hilton Head, and a unique selection of vessels, we can make the perfect match.

  • 20-22’ SUV Deck Boats
    Live Oac SUV deck boat charter in Hilton Head

    20-22’ SUV Deck Boats

    Make/Model: Hurricane Deck Boats (several models)

    Power: Yamaha F200 & F150 Four Stroke Outboards

    Capacity: Rated for 10, but limited to 6 guests plus Captain per boat.

    Enjoy a comfortable ride on the water thanks to these boat’s fiberglass v-shaped hulls. Sit back and relax in cushioned seats with cushioned backrests. Compare to other “dolphin tour boats” in Hilton Head without cushions and only metal railing for “backrests” and you’ll see why our SUV Deck Boats are preferred.

    Although each boat is rated for 10 passengers, we carry up to 6 guests on board (not including the Captain). That means you’ll have plenty of room and more individual attention than if you were in a boat with more people. We have several SUV Deck Boats and can accommodate larger groups. Call us for rates for groups of 7 or more.

    Powered by quiet Yamaha F200 & F150 4-stroke motors, these boats are designed for a great balance between power and speed, and can handle pulling skiers, boarders, and tubers with ease. Plus, they’ll get us where we want to go, quickly and easily.

    Stacks Image 32829
    Make/Model: Forest Johnson & Son “Prowler” (Hand-built in Miami, FL)

    Power: Yamaha F250 Four Stroke Outboard

    Capacity: 6 adult guests (Max 4 for offshore trips) plus Captain

    This classic South Florida style charter fishing boat offers plenty of shade and lots of space. She fishes anywhere from inshore to offshore and in between. Bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, she's ready to tackle just about anything.

    Shelter from the sun under the hardtop, windowed to let the breeze flow through when needed. We carry marine beanbags for comfort on longer offshore runs.
  • Yellowfin Skiff
    Stacks Image 32802
    Make/Model: Yellowfin 17 Skiff

    Power: Mercury “Bigfoot” 4-Stroke
    Secondary Power: GPS Enabled Minn Kota Terrova ST80 Trolling Motor (removable)
    Tertiary Power: Push Poling Platform for skinny water flats fishing

    Capacity: 3 medium-sized adult guests (or 4 guests if 2 are kids) plus Captain

    Classic Yellowfin design, with an amazing ride. We fish the flats, creeks, sounds and near coastal range in this boat. With a 6” loaded draft, she runs super shallow for serious redfish poling trips (1-2 adults ideal for this approach). Comfortable in the sound for pursuing deeper water species like bull reds, cobia, tarpon, and sharks, and we’ll even venture into the near coastal range when conditions are favorable.

    This is a close-to-perfectly designed boat for Hilton Head fishing charters.

    Capacity: 1 or 2 guests plus Captain

    Specialty: Hardcore super skinny water redfishing!

    This ultralight skiff is designed to pole in just inches of water, crossing tidal flats in search of elusive redfish.
