About Captain Will Adams
Growing up on Folly Beach not only gave me an appreciation for this area, it gave me a knowledge that was taught to me from the time I could talk. With my Grandfather being the first mayor of Folly, I grew up with a different sense of how unique and special it truly is. My family was always doing something to enjoy everything Folly has to offer-from camping at Civil War sites, to finding Indian pottery, and enjoying the wildlife. My earliest memory is fishing with my Grandfather and bringing in my first fish, I was hooked. As I got older, my passion for fishing only intensified and I found myself working to support my habit so-to-speak. I worked as an iron worker for 17 years, making sure I could work around my fishing schedule, which was difficult at best. I never thought I could make a living doing what I loved. I found myself taking days off work to teach people what I knew, and it hit me like a ton of bricks when I was unexpectedly paid by someone who I took out fishing. After years of saving, studying, and taking the Captain’s test, I finally had the credentials to do what I love every day. The best thing I have to offer other than my years of experience and knowledge, is that I understand and appreciate how important each trip is. I put my all into each and every trip to make sure it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience every time.

While we try our best to get people out hunting for teeth, during the summer months we prioritize our fishing and cannot guarantee trips.
Who doesnt love to watch Dolphins! This is the perfect way to truly get a Lowcountry experience while relaxing with friends and family.
Charleston Harbor Cruise
Let Captain Will take you and your friends/family out on a private cruise through the Charleston Harbor. May we recommend that you do this near sunset to maximize the breathtaking experience!
"Having Fun in the Sun"
What do I need to bring?
We always suggest that the customer brings food, sunscreen, sunglasses, extra layer of clothes (in case its needed), some form of identification and a desire to have some "fun in the sun".
What if I get sea sick?
If you get sea sick while on the charter, we do have a place where you can go lie down in comfort. You may want to consult with a pharmacist prior to the charter to see if they have any recommendations on any medications you can take to prevent motion sickness and/or should not take while on the charter. Please note that most motion sickness medication is best taken before you get on the boat.
Are you insured and licensed?
Captain Will Adams is both insured and licensed with his 100 ton masters.
What time do we leave and comeback?
Typically the offshore charter will leave the boat landing at 7 AM and return around 2 PM to 5 PM depending on distance, weather and charter type. For nearshore and inshore charters, the times are flexible and can usually be worked in around your schedule so long as its at least 3 hours before dark. Please note that the shark teeth charter is dictated by the tides.
If you want to get a Lowcountry experience and have a good time then call Captain Will Adams.....He isn't kidding when he says that you will tire out from catching so many fish!
