Captain Chris Shoemaker is a 100 ton Coast Guard licensed captain born and raised in Bluffton, South Carolina on the May River. His low country roots date back into the 1600’s through the port of Charleston. His father was a commercial fisherman for over 25 years in which he inherited vast amounts of knowledge about the fisheries and habitats which make up the heart of the low country. Capt. Shoemaker spent a brief time in Columbia, South Carolina where he graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2007.

May River Excursions operates Carolina Skiff boats and can accommodate as many as 12 passengers per boat. Multiple boats are available for larger parties.
