About Riptide Roots

Riptide Roots

 Riptide Roots Charleston was established by Captain Austin Harley, a Charleston local who has a passion for fishing and Charleston Lifestyle. Captain Austin is a Clemson University Grad who decided upon graduation that showing the beauty of Charleston and the greatness of its fishery was his calling.  He established Riptide Roots with the intent of giving customers a authentic view and experience of the famed South Carolina LowCountry. 

We have designed our charter packages with the intent of giving customers the true experience of what it means to Live Like a Local. Whether catching redfish and trout around the calm waters of our natural barrier islands, catching pelagic species off the coast, or cruising around the Charleston Harbor and enjoying the sunset and watching the dolphins play we have you covered. Our fleet of boats range from 20 ft bay boats, large 30+ ft center consoles, and all the way up to 60 ft luxurious sport fishing yachts. 

We welcome people of all ages and experience. Being a family ran company we know the power being being out on the water with close family and friends can have. This quality time spent will be cherished and remembered for years to come!
