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.

Fantastic trip, skipper stopped to let us admire the pic of dolphins swimming around. Caught loads of mackerel, had to put a lot back as they were small but caught enough big ones to take home for dinner. Spacious boat, friendly, informative, helpful skipper

We took our 7 year old on her first fishing trip. Matt was great and made it a fun experience. We had 90 minutes caught over 25 fish, saw dolphins. Highly recommend and great value. So much so we went again today and caught our tea!! We are probably going again before we head home on Friday. Cheers Matt 👍👍🐟🐟 Paul, Sarah and Lily 👏👏 ps thanks for letting Lily use the hoodie

Brilliant mackerel fishing trip. 2 hours was enough time to catch quite a few fish. Matt is excellent - well organised, friendly & helpful. We even got to take the dog! I’d highly recommend booking in advance, especially throughout high season. We loved it so much we’ve been multiple times. You get to keep your catch if they’re big enough to eat so be prepared to fillet and cook your Cornish Mackerel!

What a fantastic trip with Matt on the Diligence. We caught mackerel for our BBQ, saw dolphins and spotted 15 seals on the island - couldn't ask for more. Well done Matt, thank you so much for making our fishing trip so much fun. Highly recommended.

We had a great to time on our fishing trip. Matt is obviously knowledgeable, and he's helpful and funny, making the whole experience very fun, regardless of how much the fish are biting. Definitely would go again.

This was a great experience for all involved. There were seven of us aged 8-65 and we had great fun and came away with 14 mackerel for a boozy BBQ lunch. Mat and Erin were perfect. They were always on hand when anyone needed help and Skipper Mat made sure he found the right area to fish. I must say we caught far more than 14, but put many back as some were too small. Thank you for a great 90 minutes. We will return.

We went on dilligence today. The skipper is really friendly. We caught a few mackerel. The bonus was seeing a big pod of dolphins which we followed for a bit. What a treat

Matt was really friendly and helpful. We had a short scenic steam out of the harbour and before you know it he had us on top of a shoal of mackerel.
He was really helpful, particularly with the kids who hadn't fished before.
We got to keep as many of the fish as we wanted, which made for a fabulous fresh dinner that evening.
It was super value and a really nice trip. It was long enough to be enjoyable for it's entirety, but not too long so the kids didn't get bored. I would highly recommend it, and if I get to Mevagissey again I'll definitely take another trip out.
