Fishing and boating are great daytime activities with which to fill your Myrtle Beach vacation. With several boat chartering companies in the area providing boat trips with licensed captains, your group, whether big or small, is sure to have a great afternoon.

One of the most exciting and unique boating experiences in the Grand Strand is catching a charter on the legendary Living Large Party Barge. Led by Captain Joel Edge, this charter company offers a variety of excursions from family-friendly eco-tours, fishing trips and island getaways on a private beach to boat bar hops, full moon cruises and anchoring off the Boathouse, a bar situated on the intercoastal waterway with a Summer Sunday Concert Series. When guests hop aboard this colorful boat they enjoy Captain Edge's fun facts and knowledge about the history, plants and animals in the area and create incredible memories. Visit to book your charter today.

Beach fishing is also an incredibly popular past time in Myrtle Beach and is allowed before 9:00 a.m. and after 4:00 p.m. within the Myrtle Beach city limits. Remember to always fish with caution. There are also piers throughout the Grand Strand that allow fishing, from Cherry Grove in North Myrtle Beach to Myrtle Beach State Park. View all the piers and details about fishing them here.
