Overview

Visit Ilfracombe harbour and book a trip aboard our modern charter fishing boat "Jay Jay". We offer fishing trips year round from as little as £15pp inclusive of all rods and tackle. Our mackerel trips are a great way to entertain the kids and you can even keep your catch for dinner. The boat is fitted with the latest navigation and safety equipment and is licensed for 12 passengers. We can also cater for stag and hen parties and provide coastal and sunset cruises on request.
