Located at the Crazy Sisters Marina on the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk, Capt. Dick's has been taking landlubbers to sea for decades, and passengers keep coming back for more. Friendly service, reasonable rates and good times are Capt. Dick's calling cards. Offering deep-sea fishing trips aboard its fleet of ships, Capt. Dick's can take your group to the ocean depths or to its secret honey holes in the inlet to catch whatever kind of fish you wish.
With a helpful crew handling everything from baiting hooks to removing fish from your line, you can sit back and enjoy a relaxing day of fishing aboard any number of vessels in the Capt. Dick's fleet. The Head Boat, the largest party boat in South Carolina, sails to the Continental Shelf and Gulf Stream, where all the biggest bottom-feeders - grouper, sea bass, snapper and more - are found and caught. Featuring an air-conditioned cabin, passengers can escape from the heat until they reach one of Capt Dick's hot spots.
Sport fishing trips go after the big game, like king mackerel and billfish, while the near shore/Inlet cruises explore the inlet areas for species that stay closer to the coast. Offering half-day, full-day and even overnight voyage, Capt Dick's has the fishing trip to accommodate your party.
But fishing is only part of the many adventures offered by Capt. Dick's. Boat rentals allow more experienced sailors to take their own tours. Rent an inlet boat for a quiet day of fishing or try a pontoon boat for a floating party barge.
Capt Dick's rents much more than boats. Jet skis, kayaks, peddle boats and paddleboards also are available, allowing patrons to take themselves on a private cruise through the Murrells Inlet waters. Not up for steering? Let Capt. Dick take the helm on one of its many adventure tours.
Check out the dolphin-sightseeing cruises, Banana Boat rides, guided kayak tours and a saltmarsh cruise are among the many tours available.
The most unique cruise is aboard Capt. Dick's Pirate Ship, a replica of the cutters that used to roam these waters in search of treasure. Guests ride along with an actual pirate crew and encounter clashes with privateers in a thrilling floating show.
But for the ultimate in excitement, go parasailing high above the ocean and inlet on one of Capt Dick's safe but thrilling rides. Strap into a harness and ride the ocean breeze with a parachute in this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
