*Important update and news


Hi everyone, just thought I’d post an update regarding our estuary fishing charters.

Coronavirus precautions:

Our private charter trips are extremely low risk and we want to keep it that way. We won’t be doing shared charters for the foreseeable future, and rarely do them anyway. Most of our guests prefer to book the boats to themselves.

On the way to the boat please thoroughly wash your hands if you have touched any public surfaces. We will also have alcohol/ aloe based sanitiser on board to spray on hands before you board and we will disinfect the boat/ tackle between charters to prevent any infections.

If you are getting symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, or have been in contact with someone ill or at risk from the virus, please do not come.

Secondly some options over the next few months.

The estuary fishing in Autumn and Winter will be sensational, book asap to avoid missing out.
