  • Captain Brad "The Legend" provided an excellent dolphin tour during our trip to Kiawah! He was extremely patient and understanding of my mother, who was struggling to get onto the boat due to health concerns. He kindly and gingerly helped her get on and off the boat. My nine-year-old daughter warmed up to Captain Brad immediately. He let her steer the boat and answered her one million questions. He engaged her with conversations and let her talk to other boat captains on the radio. Brad was knowledgeable about the area and could tell us the history of many houses and islands. He took us to an area he knew was likely to have dolphins. We had a close encounter with many dolphins, and Brad was considerate of their space while making sure we had a great experience. We will certainly use Brad to charter another trip the next time we are in the area. He is an excellent boat captain, but more importantly he is an excellent human being!
  • Great experience with Capt. Brad on 4 hour inshore charter on a muggy June morning. Booking a fishing guide can be hit or miss, but Sonny Boy charters has a sterling reputation and we saw first hand why. Clean boat, easy booking process, and most importantly an engaging, friendly and knowledgable captain. Fishing was good for trout and reds, but the highlight of the trip was landing the bonnethead shark that my nephew had requested. Highly recommend Sonny Boy Charters.
  • Had the best day Reef/shark fishing with Captain Brad and his first mate, Dillon! My boyfriend finally caught the bull red he's been trying to catch all summer - along with 3 other bull reds landed. We also caught more than enough fish for our family's surf & turf cookout back at the Island. Not only that - but he also enabled us to catch an 80 lb blacktip shark at the end of the day! In addition - he was extremely friendly and personable - and not at all in a phony way. Will definitely use him again and highly recommend him to both locals and visitors.
  • I have not had a better experience on a fishing trip, period. Captain Brad is very knowledgeable about the area and is just an incredibly funny and welcoming guy. We brought food for the trip but never had time to eat it, because we were always pulling up fish. I would also highly recommend with kids. Captain Brad showed the kids how to filet a fish (only if they wanted!) and then showed us his crab pots under the dock where he puts the scraps to work. Brad is super attentive and we can't say enough about the experience. His charter will be one of the reasons we come back to the region!
  • My family has now been fishing with Sonny Boy Charters for over 8 year. We love him so much that we go fishing with him twice during our summer week visit at Kiawah. Captain Brad is a born and raised local and knows all the best spots to hit. We have been fishing in the rivers, the reef, and have even gone shark fishing. Not once has there been a trip where we didn’t come home with a smile on our faces or fish for dinner. Being a family of 6, it can get be easy to get overwhelmed or stressed with us, especially while on a boat, but Captain Brad always remains calm, patient, and carries a positive attitude. Once, by accident, I caught a pelican, although I was a little freaked out, he knew exactly what to do and was able to unhook the pelican without injuring it at all! Also, his mates are very helpful and always have a bait in their hand to put on your hook when in need. Wouldn’t go fishing with anyone but Sonny Boy Charters!!
