Fishing Trips

A Variety of Fishing Available for All

with experienced local fishermen

Whether you want to try and catch your dinner, or you are simply fishing for fun, Ilfracombe Boat Trips has a trip to suit. Both Obsession II and {enter name here} are fully equipped with on board toilet, hot drink facilities and seating both inside and out.

The Bristol Channel has the 2nd biggest tide in the world, making its waters an excellent venue for sea angling trips, reef or wreck fishing all year round. Our experienced skippers and crew are always ready and willing to offer as much or as little instruction and aid as you require, and all tackle and bait are included. You are of course welcome to bring your own gear, however.

Our 1½ hour Mackerel fishing trips are perfect for all ages and abilities, and it is unlikely you'll come away empty handed during the busy season. A great starter trip for the youngsters, our experienced skippers and crew are there to instruct and aid as much or as little as you need.

Slightly longer, at 2 hours, we offer the ever popular Reef fishing. A steam out to a reef or wreck gives a wider variety of fish to catch, much of which can be taken away with you and cooked. Another great one for the less experienced, or those who don’t want to be out for too long.

Usually enjoyed most by those who are used to sea angling, our Deep Sea fishing trips are always popular. We offer half day (4 hour) trips regularly throughout the summer months, and full day (8 hour) trips usually during the low season, although on request we can often arrange a longer trip any time during sailing season. Your trip will of course include your tackle and bait and as much or as little help from the crew as you need.

You can fish for Pollack, Bass, Smooth Hound, Bull Huss, Conger, Tope, a variety of Rays and Dogfish amongst others, and we can cater for beginners right up to the most experienced anglers. Our crew are fully trained professionals and they will be only too happy to offer help and advice should you need it.

Book early, especially during peak times, to avoid disappointment. Private charters can be arranged by the hour, half day, or full day, and we run special evening and night trips for experienced parties.

The health & safety of our customers is of paramount importance to us. To this end, all our staff are fully trained, experienced and skilled in whatever activity they are involved with, and will give a safety briefing at the beginning of the trip. Our skippers are all first aid qualified at the highest level, and are all serving members of Ilfracombe RNLI’s volunteer lifeboat crew. Rest assured, with Ilfracombe Boat Trips you are in safe hands. Life jackets are available for all passengers.
