Other Fripp Island Fishing Experiences 

Boat Rentals 

You can rent a Carolina Skiff from the Fripp Island Marina and take it for a spin through the many intercoastal waterways and rivers extending between here and Beaufort. Bring a couple of fishing rods along to cast in a line in one of the beautiful marshes. It’s a fantastic way to spend a morning or sunny afternoon in our Lowcountry paradise. 

Beach Fishing 

If you don’t feel like getting out on the water, you can always fish from the shore. Miles of sandy beaches await you, but one of the best spots for casting a line in at the southern tip of the island along Skull Inlet. 

Tip: Please be mindful of people swimming around you if you fish from the beach. 

Kayak Rentals  

No, it’s not deep sea fishing, but renting a kayak and paddling on one of the tidal creeks along the shore of Fripp Island is still a great way to spend part of your day. You can even bring a fishing rod and cast your line in for fun!
