“Fun trip in a boat 'fishing'”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Despite the slightly windy weather and rough seas, we had a lovely hour's trip skippered by Dougal (in for Nick on the day).

Perhaps it's just the cynic in me, but I wonder whether there was indeed any chance at all of us catching any mackerel given the sea state... In any regards, we all enjoyed the trip (including 2 kids under 7) and Dougal made a great effort to chat to our eldest about all the kit on the boat and how it all worked.

All in all a very pleasant way to spend an hour, even if the fish were a no show!

“Mackerel Fishing Trip on Kraken”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

We had a perfect boat trip on our holiday to Lyme Regis this year.

The boat was Kraken. The Skipper - Dougal was great, with fishing tips and instruction as well as pointing what was along the coast line, where ship wrecks lie. It was really nice to see someone who really loves their job.

Even if your not fishing it's a great trip out in the bay, just look at the beautiful coast line from a different prospective.

Highly recommend a trip in this lovely little boat.
