Not only does Beaufort have great fishing practically year round, Beaufort South Carolina has a history that has contributed to our present day. Historical sites that can be seen from the Beaufort River and Port Royal sound include, a period British Fort, a historic Spanish Fort, a fort from the Mexican American War, and a Fort from the Civil War! Also, a great view from Paris Island, The Marine Corps Recruit Depot can be seen from the Port Royal Sound.

From the Seawolf you can expect to see lowcountry nature, from coastal birds, to the bottle-nose dolphin that often swims in the wake of Seawolf. Even the occasional sea turtle shows itself from time to time. If you enjoy nature as much as you enjoy fishing, then you’ll get the best of both worlds.
