Give your dad a top-shelf vacation with a visit to the Charleston coast this Fathers Day, Sunday, June 18. Dads often get the short end of the stick with gifts, so a memorable getaway sounds like just the ticket. 

And the Charleston coast makes an amazing destination. Spoil your dad with exceptional properties on Kiawah and Seabrook islands, Isle of Palms, and Wild Dunes. He deserves a stress-free escape from the daily grind. 

Once you arrive on the coast, your dad can prop up his feet and relax on a deck overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Or you can get right to a stellar lineup of activities. 

Get a line in the water with a private inshore fishing trip with Barrier Island Fishing Charters. Fish the tidal creeks and salt marshes in search of redfish, sea trout, flounder, and other species with an experienced guide who can put you on the fish. 

Or book an offshore fishing trip with Keen Eye Charters to go after bigger fish. Anglers have a blast reeling in snapper, grouper, kingfish, and more on the six-hour bottom fishing trip. 

Chow down on a gourmet burger and beer at Poes Tavern on Sullivan’s Island to end the day.

Start the next day with a morning tee time at one of Kiawah Islands five high-caliber golf courses. From the unpredictable Atlantic winds on the Ocean Course to playing through the lagoons and marshes of the Osprey Point Course, you will experience a challenging and fun 18 holes of golf.

After your round, head to the Salty Dog Cafe at Bohicket Marina for oysters on the half shell, shrimp and grits, or Jake’s Lowcountry boil with peel and eat wild caught East Coast shrimp, Andouille sausage, potatoes, and corn on the cob steamed with Old Bay butter. Or choose from the Landlubbers menu of beef short ribs or a fire-grilled filet mignon. Wash it down with a Salty Dog Draught brewed locally by River Dog Brewing Co. 

Of course, there are plenty of other activities to keep you busy. Explore Kiawah or Seabrook islands on two wheels with a rental from Alligator Bikes. Or rent kayaks or canoes for a paddle through the inlets of the Charleston coast with Coastal Expeditions. Start and end each day with a walk on the beach to take in the sun and sea air.
