In most circumstances, email is by far the best way to get hold of us, either to  make a booking or just for more information. We don’t have a booking office so an email will be picked up at some point during the day when we have access to the diary, the tide table and the weather forecast, all of which are vital. We check emails at least daily and ALWAYS reply within 24 hours.


If your needs are URGENT and need to be dealt with within 12 hours, try the mobile. If no-one picks up (Dan may be at sea and have his hands full), send a text message. Texts work very well for urgent enquiries but again, if Dan’s at sea and your query needs the diary or the weather forecast then please be patient and we will get back in the evening.



We are very diligent when dealing with enquiries and reply to everyone, whether we can help or not. If you haven’t had a reply within 24hours, please assume that there has been a communication problem (garbled message, lost message or wrong number) and get in touch again.

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"
