Relaxed Charters

It’s not all about fish!


Easy going relaxed trips and days out on the Blue Pointer, from Helford in Cornwall

Dan has taken people snorkelling, photographing Tall Ships, wildlife watching, ashes scattering and just gentle cruising so if you’re not sure that fishing is your thing, you can charter the boat for whatever purpose you like and we often have groups who just fancy a mooch around, a coastal cruise and a picnic. The Blue Pointer is principally a fishing boat but Dan is quite house-proud and the boat ¬†does not stink of fish so you can feel reassured that everyone in your group will enjoy a trip out, fishing or not. We have an area to sit if its too cold or hot for you. The kids can have a drive (or even the adults!) and generally we have a very nice relaxed time. When you charter the boat to yourselves, you call the shots, Dan will do his best to make it perfect.


How about a cruise around the Estuary in the morning, a picnic lunch aboard or a pub lunch ashore, then a coastal cruise and a spot of light fishing for the BBQ in the evening? Its not all “extreme fishing” you know.

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"
