“What a fantastic experience”

We saw the ad in Boat Fishing Monthly and booked straight away. Rob was amazing and we had a blast - would thoroughly recommend sea fishing off the Isle of Wight and Black Rock Charters, can't wait to go again.

“Great fishing trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

We booked for the morning trip but as there were not enough people, the trip was postponed to the afternoon. I suggest that you call in advance to see if the trip is going ahead. Price was £20 per person and everything is provided, you just need to show up!

We went on the 16:30 fishing trip with Rob and there were 9 people fishing. We had signed up for one and a half hours but we fished for 3 hrs. and caught lots of mackerel. These were put on the BBQ the next evening and were delicious!

Rob was great - very helpful and we really enjoyed our trip! Next time we're on the Island, we'll be back!

“highlight of our holiday!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2012

Excellent! We had expected to mainly come back with a few mackerel but our skipper Rob was determined for us to have a more 'interesting' catch. We tried three different locations (first two aimed at catching mackerel for bait which we did). We then had a pleasant boat ride out a bit further towards the beautiful needles where we anchored and set up a variety of rods. We caught a few bream, a massive ray, quite a few dogfish and a few more mackerel. Rob was very friendly and really knew his stuff. We went for a half day but were out for 6 hours, fantastic value for money! We'll definitely be going again next time we visit the island, would highly recommend.
