5 hour Private charter sea fishing trips

April to early January on any available day

Some midweek availability from October but all weekends are fully booked until the end of this year.

Departing from Keyhaven in Hampshire and usually fishing in Christchurch Bay or to the south of the Needles Lighthouse depending on the tides on the day. This is a special shorter trip aimed mainly at families and small private charter groups wanting to spend just a few hours out in the bay doing some fishing to see what they can catch. We supply all the rods tackle and bait so you just have to bring yourselves and a bite to eat and don't worry if you've never fished before we'll show you what to do. The 5 hour sea fishing trip is the next step up from mackerel trips giving people the chance to catch some different types of fish without having to stay out on the boat all day. During the Summertime it is possible to catch various species of fish on this trip but the most common are Mackerel, Dogfish, a few Bream and occasionally something bigger like a Tope, a Ray, Smoothound or maybe even a Conger eel can take your bait. During the winter months the main species caught are Whiting, Dogfish, Pout and there's always the chance of catching something bigger like a Ray, Conger eel and if you're very lucky maybe a Cod. Other species show up from time to time, so give it a try and see how your luck goes.

Please note: This is not Wreck fishing or Bass fishing, we don't do those.

5 hour private boat charters just for your group of friends & family or workmates etc can be booked for any available day including weekends from April to early January. We aim our charters and prices at the smaller groups of up to 5 or 6 anglers ideally but you can bring a maximum of 7 people if you want to. By keeping the numbers on board our boats down to 6 anglers or less it makes for a much more enjoyable day for everyone with less tangles and more room to move around on the boat.


Unfortunately we will no longer be running any 5 hour trips for individuals, these trips are now for private charter only. It's been a hard decision but Ray will not be working so many days each week this year so I'm afraid we can't fit in the trips for individuals anymore, sorry for any inconvenience.

After you have booked your fishing trip

When you make a booking with us we will confirm the details of the trip and give you a start time for you to be on board the boat at Keyhaven, directions for getting to Keyhaven and where to find the boat when you get there are all on the "Where to find us" page. You will also be asked to phone us at 7.00pm the night before your trip to confirm that the marine weather forecast and sea conditions are suitable for your trip to go ahead, PLEASE REMEMBER TO DO THIS!!! as our trips are fished on the open sea and we have to take notice of the weather forecasts to ensure your safety and enjoyment during the fishing trip.

Our decision on whether or not a trip goes ahead is based on our reading of the latest marine weather forecasts for the strength of the wind, our knowledge of the localised weather conditions and also our years of experience taking people fishing in our local waters, it's not just a matter of whether the sun is shining or not so please remember to phone us to check all is ok. Our aim is to give our customers an enjoyable and above all safe fishing trip so if we are forced to cancel a trip please try to understand that we make the decision with your best interests in mind. If your fishing trip is booked as a birthday present it is always a good idea to have a "plan B" in mind for your day, just in case the weather conditions prevent us from taking you out to sea.
