Bookings and Prices

 

For private charters, booking is simple. Pick a date that suits you, drop us a line and we will confirm availability. We normally will be able to confirm availability within 8 hours of an enquiry by email.

On your own and after a day’s fishing? Get added to the emailing list.

If you are local or a regular visitor and are on your own or in a small group and are looking for a day’s fishing from time to time, email us and we will add you to the emails list.  Your email address will be shared with all on the list already, and vice-versa so, create your own email list and ping off an email with as much notice as possible. Check with me first for availability and recommended fishing type for the day. I no longer organise individuals trips as it is quite time consuming, now people get together and simply charter the boat like any other charter. I will not use you email address for any other purpose but cannot guarantee that others wont but the list is small and made up of like-minded people so IM not sure it would be of much use to anyone else!

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"
