Serene Fishing In Charleston SC

In the winter of 1997 three high school friends, Shane Ziegler, Jose Hernandez, and Maximum Sparwasser, were roasting oysters over a cedar fire on Capers Island when the three of them created the idea of forming Barrier Island Eco Tours. The 23 years of age had actually spent much of their youth boating the tidal creeks of the Charleston location fishing, shrimping, crabbing, and checking out the undeveloped obstacle islands. They felt that visitors to Charleston were missing out on the best part of the lowcountry, its undeveloped obstacle islands and back creek salt marshes. They wanted to expose people to Capers Island and its surrounding salt marsh environment, however in an informative way so guests left with a higher regard and gratitude of this incredibly unspoiled location.

In the summertime of 1997, after receiving permission from the SCDNR to take visitors to Capers Island, Hernandez and Ziegler started company taking instructional nature trips to Capers on a 6 passenger boat. In 1998 they bought the Callinectes, a Coast Guard Certified 40 passenger trip boat. Two years later they included a 23 ft. fishing boat for inshore fishing charters. Two years after that, a 16 passenger skiff outfitted for smaller sized customized eco-tours, kayaking, and fishing trips was contributed to the fleet. In 2006, Ziegler bought out Hernandez’s share of the business and included a 22 passenger pontoon which he leases from his head naturalist, Robert Hopkins.
