Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A superb experience, very straight forward to book and Danielle, who greeted us at the quayside, was happy to accommodate us when we had to make an adjustment to our tickets. Lewis was an excellent skipper. He gave clear instructions and was attentive throughout the trip, ensuring our catch was swiftly unhooked so we could get the line back in the water! We caught loads of mackerel! Excellent equipment and a shiny, clean, comfortable boat. I wouldn't consider a boat trip with any other company in St Ives.

We booked a trip out mainly for my partner as he loves fishing, I had not been before. Unfortunately I suffered seasickness once we were out and had started fishing and sat the rest of it out but my partner thoroughly enjoyed it! The sea was VERY rough 🤢
Sam and Paul were great, showing everyone how to use the rods correctly and there was lots of pollock caught, gurnard mackerel and Rass.
Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a trip out with these guys! A real gem of a company.

What a terrific trip, I am slightly disabled and was looked after well by the skipper and mate, the fish were also playing I had loads of Pollack on side winder lures, I used my own tackle most of the time but the kit supplied looked more than adequate. I am relatively experienced as an angler and it was great to see others on the boat catching, maybe for the first time, and maybe getting the bug. Awesome!

I had a wonderful morning’s fishing. I was lucky enough to catch a couple of large pollock and a cod, I would highly recommend Sam if you’re thinking of a fishing trip while in st Ives, his knowledge of ware to take you for the best fishing was amazing. Will definitely book again next time I’m down. Jeff

The company staff were very friendly, ensured safety and made an extra effort for us to see the seals more than once. There aren’t many seals on the lighthouse rock but we did see them well.

We went on the hour and a half mackerel fishing trip. Great fun. Every one of the Bluefin team were friendly and helpful and made sure that everyone was fishing safely and landed their catch. We caught a fish each and took them home to have for our tea. Really nice afternoon

Fantastic experience, staff were very well informed, helpful and had great customer service. The boat was great, our trip was changed due to safety reasons, and we were offered a full refund or partial with a different trip. Had a great time even though the weather was not with use for the whole trip. Still got to see several seals and one was in the harbor and came right up to the boat.

A good couple of hours out after the mackerel; everything easy & straightforward, and quick help on hand when needed. Our 8-year-old-boy loved it, and we'd recommend for sure :~}

Great fishing trip. Caught several mackerel and saw lots of dolphins as an added bonus. Enjoyed by my 13 year old too. Highly recommended
