The best charters in Cornwall, from the Helford River

Fishing trips in Cornwall on the Blue Pointer

There is a huge difference between people who love fishing and those who love catching only. To fish requires no skill, no ego, no experience, just the mentality to sit on a boat, away from normal life, and drown a worm, a piece of plastic or a squid. You can be good, bad or indifferent at catching but will always have a fantastic day and I will always be happy to have you aboard – The Skipper


The Blue Pointer is solidly built and very seaworthy, the high gunwales make her very safe and enclosed.


The Blue Pointer, Aquastar 33'

The boat is equipped with all the gear needed for your safety and to catch fish. We don’t charge for either rod hire or tackle use. Our tackle is modern and Dan doesn’t keep any gear he wouldn’t use himself with rods from 8lb to 80lb class and reels loaded with braid, from Shimano Tyrnos II’s to Okuma Cortez  CZ-10’s.                                                                                                                                                      




Dan skippers the Blue Pointer. He keeps the atmosphere on the boat relaxed and unpressured.






Because we only really run private bookings, we can do precisely what you like. We do a lot of “serious” fishing, but we can also make a day more enjoyable for less hardcore fishers. We make sure that everyone has a great day, every day.

Why Are We The Best?

If we are not the best charter outfit around, we want to know why!

Unlike some ports, Helford Village and Helford Passage don't have a huge amount of passing trade so we have to be good. We have great fishing and very sheltered waters meaning we get out more than most boats in Cornwall and fish in very good conditions only.

We think the reason people come back time and time again is not because we always fill the boat with enormous fish, but because of the way we run the boat and the business.

  • All bookings are confirmed in writing and can be receipted
  • We don't promise trips that we can't fulfill only to cancel in the morning we were supposed to go
  • We almost always call the weather the night before
  • We return ALL calls and emails promptly, whether we can help or not
  • We never short change anyone on time
  • Gear losses and fuel burned always come second to catching fish and having a good day
  • We take the business seriously but the fishing is always relaxed

"We can't control the fish or the weather but we can do our best to get the rest right"
