Had an amazing morning with Skipper Rob aboard the Alaminta with a trip out to The Needles. He really knows his stuff and I enjoyed learning about the history of the Isle as much as the scenery. My only regret was not booking a full day fishing trip!

Third time to Yarmouth and third time in black rock charters!! Rob the skipper is such a nice guy, he really does his best to put you on the fish as well as considering whether everyone is a seasoned sailor and hence ok for a heavy swell. He was friendly and helpful to very experienced and complete novice alike. Definitely... More

The sun was shining upon us for our boat trip and it was well worth the trip to the Needles. Rob was excellent guide and Captain, and allowed the children to drive the boat! Definitely go on this trip rather than others as have more time on the waters so well worth the money!

Had a private charter for a 2 hour cruise round to Tenyson down, Rob converts the boat with chairs and blankets for a relaxing cruise, helped by a gorgeous sunny morning. Recommend if you have a group of 6-8 can go anywhere for a relaxing stress free cruise, much better than the larger boat trips available for a great prices.... More

I wanted to find out what it was like to actually be on the water instead of just watching from the shore all the time as I have done for over 6o years but was nervous and didn't want to look foolish in front of people. Needn't have worried. .Nathan in the shop/booking office was reassuring and when the time... More

We were on the first Needles cruise of the season. From the start, the young guy dealing with the bookings was really polite and helpful. We took our 2 small dogs on board... one still being a puppy and Rob was careful to make sure he was comfortable with the engine noise etc before setting to sea - he was,... More

What a fantastic trip! Rob was brilliant lots of information about the needles, rocks castles and local history. He organised sunshine as well, what a clever chap! The white of the needles on a beautiful blue sky was fantastic. Highlight of our early holiday.

Took two boys on the 4 hour trip, and they had a great time. Both had been fishing before but found this a new experience especially as they both caught a dog fish ( mini shark in their eyes). Rob the skipper is very knowledgeable, and you have your utmost confidence in him. It wasn't the best of weather, but... More
