Capt. Kai Williams, owner, and operator of Awesome Adventure Charters is a United States Coast Guard licensed captain. After moving to Hilton Head Island at the age of 6, Kai spent most of his youth fishing, crabbing, clamming and shrimping. At the age of 15, Kai began work as a junior kayak guide for a local company. He quickly moved up to kayak guide, then transitioned to fishing guide, which finally led him to be a charter captain. Aside from his Coastal Carolina University days, where he worked at the fishing pier, Kai has been teaching water sports, guiding fishermen, and fishing for fun about 300 days a year. If you're looking for a knowledgeable and experienced captain to take you on a safe and memorable fishing charter, be sure to call Capt. Kai Williams at (843) 816-7475.
