Mackerel Fishing Trips  (Seasonal only June – September)

Our mackerel fishing trips are a fun filled fishing extravaganza. According to TripAdvisor reviews we are the most popular on the Isle Of Wight.

Ideal first fishing trip for children.

Come fishing with our Skippers to have an experience of a lifetime. You catch your fish using rod and line. Both Skippers are commercially endorsed through the MCA, with their license and knowledge, you know you will be in safe hands for the duration of your trip. . Tuition and rod hire is always included in our price.

Mackerel fishing has been changing over the years with the reliability of a catch not as consistent as once seen.  The Skipper will know where and what to target on your session but can’t guarantee a catch.  If it’s a bit of fun out on the water then this is a great introduction on a fishing boat.  However if it’s a catch you are looking for then please remember Mackerel are one of the species we are seeing a big change and decline in our region.  You will have an added bonus of seeing the beautiful Isle of Wight from the water and when conditions are right the famous Needles.

Booking in advance is definitely recommended for this fantastic fishing experience.
