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 £12.50pp 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.

Booked a trip for some of our party including 4 kids aged between 5-11. 1.5 hours is long enough for kids, and they managed a haul of 8 fish in that time! All thoroughly enjoyed it, the staff were brilliant with the kids. My oldest (8) said it was the best thing he did on holiday. Would definitely recommend.

Having driven nearly an hour to get there the following morning, it turned out they had booked us in for a day later and had taken another party out. Whilst trying get to the bottom of the issue the young... More

Arrived today for our scheduled fishing trip at 0945 for a 1000 departure, only to be told the boat had already left. Confused as to how this had happened we located Cassie who we booked the trip with. She went on to say that when we booked it on Monday (yesterday) for tomorrow (Tuesday) she thought that would mean we... More

We booked to do a two hour fishing trip with this company. We drove over half an hour to get there to be told they had booked us onto the wrong day. A mistake by them, which, although annoying does happen. However the female member of staff would not accept her mistake and was very rude about it. Avoiding any... More
