About the Captain

Captain Gresh Meggett III standing on his boatI’m Captain Gresh Meggett III and I have been the owner/operator of Absolute Reel Screamer Charters since 1998.  I’m an 8th generation Charlestonian. My family and I have been navigating these waters since the early 1700’s.

I started my private boat tours out of  pure love for our estuaries, dolphins, and amazing marine life here in Charleston South Carolina. The tributaries we’ll be travelling on were my childhood playgrounds!  In the summer my cousins and I were in them from sun up until supper time – shrimping, fishing, and just exploring. My father would walk to the end of our dock and shoot a shotgun so we’d know it was time to come home.  Everyday that I am in these rivers, I feel like a kid again!

Absolute Reel Screamer Charters wants your party to have the same exhilarating feeling. So please join me on this private boat tour – let me show you what Charleston South Carolina is all about!

This is an image of me holding a sea turtle named Crosby that was tragically hit by a boat. I rescued him and brought him to the local aquarium. Crosby has made a full recovery and is now back to swimming in the Charleston waters.
