Went for my first ever fishing trip, no mackerel about so we went right out until we caught some big old Whiting. I'd totally recommend this trip, it was great!

Mevagissey on a bank holiday Monday, having missed the Ferry to Fowey and with three young children under 10 in tow. Skipper Chris to the rescue, a half hour tour around the harbour turned in to an hour mackerel fishing. Amazing experience for the children and adults alike. Really helpful and great with the kids, lets just say the trip back to harbour was unforgettable experience with a few 360 turns for good measure. Thank you, definitely recommended for fishing and/or tour of coastline.

Chris and his skipper provides a great fishing experience. They looked after everyone really well. We caught many whitings, poutings and a few dog fish. Mary’s famous pasties for lunch - what more could you ask for!

Went with my girlfriend and other customers. Very friendly. We all got stuck in and caught loads of fish. The skipper knew his way around the bay and I think he did as much as anyone could to find fish and he succeeded. We detoured to see a basking shark, how he spotted it at first was impressive.
The run in back to Mevagissey with dozens of seagulls soaring just above the boat hoping for some fish was beautiful.
I'd definitely go again when I go back to Cornwall.

So, we made the first trip of the year for mackerel fishing, and we were quite unlucky as none of us caught anything :( gutted. But it was cool 90min in the sea trying to fish. I can imagine that i the summer it is much better as the weather is better and the mackerels will be there!
But just for the fun, the 2 captains are very nice and taught us how to catch mackerel. Very cool activity in Mevagissey!
