Come on a guided adventure with lots of good times and breath taking scenery. Edisto Island is one of the last few untamed places of South Carolina. Not many people are familiar with it's vast unexplored rivers and tributaries and the overabundance of strong fisheries. Few people realize the rich history of this quite little island as well. These two things combined are what makes Captain Justin Ravenel tick. He grew up spending every second of his free time getting to know the secrets of the island and he like's nothing more than to share them with you. The only thing Justin enjoys more than putting you on fish is spending time with his twin baby girls and his AMAZING wife!

Last year, I booked a trip with Justin Ravenel because I wanted my seven-year-old grandson Julius and his mom to catch fish. Justin delivered in spades. He had both of them on big reds in 10 minutes and even had Julius driving the boat.Last week, I booked a personal trip (just me) with Justin because I wanted to learn to catch reds in the small creeks around Edisto using artificials. Again, the trip was a great success. Justin poled me around the flats and I sight-fished from his “micro skiff.” In addition to the reds, I caught a really big flounder. But most importantly, the session made me a better saltwater fisherman. Based on Justin’s tips, I was soon casting 30% farther. And I learned when to fish (tide-wise) and the types of places where the reds hang out.As I hoped, I was able to apply this knowledge when fishing from my kayak. Over the next four days, I was regularly onto reds in Scott Creek. Thanks, Captain Justin! Hal Herzog

I’ve been on a lot of charter boats, Justin is one of the best Captains anywhere. His deep knowledge of Edisto combined with his great interpersonal skills result in really unique adventures for all. My wife, four children and I are still talking about the adventure we had with Justin. Fishing, playing on a sandbar, checking crab pots, and some good ole cruising were exactly what we were looking for. Our children are ages 2-12 and Justin did great with all of them. Highly recommended!

Had an amazing time on the water with Justin. Caught fish within minutes of setting up at both locations he took us to. Saw plenty of wildlife including dolphin's and gators which added to the trip. Justin is a great guide with lots of energy and enthusiasm for what he loves to do and was very knowledgeable about the environment and willing to share information on what made for a successful spot. Will definitely go out with him next time we're back.

I called Captain Justin at Ravenel Fishing Charters last minute hoping to get a trip in that same week. He was able to fit us in Friday evening. 3 generations on the boat me, my son in law land my grandson (Abe). Abe says I hope I catch a shark! We’ll be caught a few of them along with a sand ray. It was a windy day and not the best conditions but Justin put us on fish. He taught us a few things and best of all he made my grandson’s day and that’s all I need. If you want to catch fish and meet a good guy and a great fisherman call Justin at Ravenel Fishing Charters.

Justin took my wife and I and 3 young kids out on a fishing trip. Everyone had a blast and can’t stop talking about it. He had no problem putting us on the fish but there was so much more to the trip. It was an experience. As soon as you stepped foot on the boat you felt welcomed. He was engaging and informative. He talked to the kids and was extremely patient with them. They felt like they were included in the entire process. This is a top notch fishing charter. Do yourself a favor when you are on Edisto and book a trip with Justin Ravenel. You won’t be disappointed. He will cater the trip to make sure you get the most out of it and by the time you get off the boat you feel like you have a friend. I really can’t recommend it enough.

I took my family 2 kids 16 and 13 and my wife. It was an awesome experience! We caught sharks, red fish, and a stingray or 2. Kids really didn’t want to go but had a great time! We will definitely make this an every year tradition for our beach trip. Justin was fantastic and made it such a great experience for everyone!

We had a great morning fishing with Justin. The fishing experience was awesome! Justin was encouraging and informative the whole time. He had a profound knowledge of the geography and ecology of the ACE Basin which is one of America’s gems. A master of his craft, Justin made the everything seem effortless. Book a trip and you won’t regret it!

Justin took our family out for father’s day and we had an amazing time. Justin is great with children! My one year old and four year old had a great time! Justin had the lines set up quickly and we got our first bite within minutes! The kids loved touching the sharks and my husband had a great time! Highly recommend and will definitely be booking again!

We can’t recommend Captain Justin and Ravenel Fishing Charters enough. My husband, two kids (11 and 8) and I booked an evening inshore fishing tour. Not only did he have us on fish within 5 minutes of throwing the anchor but his knowledge of the area and ecosystem around us was fantastic. My son was named his first mate and he was so engaged the whole time. When Captain Justin saw that my 8 year old daughter was a little uneasy with the sharks we were reeling in, he took us on a treasure hunt to ease her mind and get her involved as well. It was the perfect trip to end our family vacation and we will certainly be using Captain Justin again in the future.
