We love fishing.... so it is easy to see why Black Rock has been voted Yarmouths No 1 tourist attraction. The combination of Rob, Sharon and Alaminta make for a great day out.The shop on the quay is brimming with stuff and Rob and Sharon will make sure you find what you need. Whether you are mackerel fishing with your kids or serious fishers, this is a must! Enjoy the beauty of the Isle of Wight coastline whilst fishing in great company on a great boat. Rob is a brill skipper and full of knowledge.....good cook as well!

We drove from North Kent at 3:30am, got a ferry from Lymington 6:30am and joined Rob on his boat at 8am in Yarmouth. Then when we had caught all the fish we could. We caught the ferry and drove all the way home again. We will definitely be making this epic journey again to join Rob for another fantastic day out next year.

We took the kids(5 and 8) to the Isle of Wight for the school hols and took them on a 2 hour mackerel fishing trip with Rob on the Alaminta.He was great with the little people(and the big people who have never been fishing before)It was Charlottes birthday and she got the first catch of the day.Back at school,writing about the best part of their school holidays was a drawing of Roberts boat and our fishing trip

I spent a brilliant time with Black Rock on a half-day trip and would thoroughly recommend them to anyone. Rob’s knowledge of the fishing grounds around Yarmouth and the Needles is excellent and I felt that if there were fish there he’d find them and he did. Will definitely book again but will probably go for the full day next time.

Thank Rob W
