As promised we came back this year! Another fantastic trip out with plenty of mackerel caught. The crew were wonderful and even let the kids help prep and gut the catch which they loved. Also saw some dolphins- bonus! Would thoroughly recommend.

Five of us had a great day shark fishing with Chris and Geoff. They clearly understand sharks and the waters, 4 Blues and one Porbeagle landed so everyone caught.

Great morning's trip with Chris and Jeff - they were patient with the kids and kept us all entertained as well as helping us pick up about 70 mackerel! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and was a true holiday highlight.
