What was supposed to be a birthday day out mackerel fishing with Harry May at Lyme Regis yesterday turned into the most magical dolphin experience for us all. Harry told us dolphins had been spotted so we quickly set sail in search of them - we were all amazed to see so many - diving and swimming with us for... More

We have been out mackerel fishing with Harry before, however today was something very special. As we left harbour Harry said that dolphins had been spotted in the bay and we might be lucky enough to see them - what followed was honestly one of the best experiences of my life! First we saw a couple of fins in the... More

We struggled to find an activity that our whole office wanted to do with a variety of ages and loves and hates and we finally stumbled across Mackerel fishing. No one turned their nose up at it so we thought why not, and it turned out to be a really enjoyable trip out. We only caught two fish but the... More

We have been coming to Lyme Regis for a number of years. Going out with Harry on his mackerel fishing trip is a total treat and one that never fails to delight and surprise, whether or not you catch any fish. Harry is a great Lyme Regis man, full of the character of the place and terribly interesting to chat... More

Well Hello Swerdnalas That was a rest review and I really appreciate you sitting down and putting that together. Sounds like we didn't catch much or even anything but it is so nice to get out on the water and do something completely different for an hour. It would be great to be able to click my fingers and summons... More

First time in Lyme Regis for over a year, beautiful day, bright and sunny, fairly calm sea. I went out on one of Harry May's boats, skippered by his assistant Matt. There were 8 of us on the boat, both sexes and a mixture of ages from about 10 up to 69, so perfect for all the family What a... More

We have been visiting Lyme for more than 10 years and without exception Harry's boats are the best. We guarantee you will not be dissapointed. He is very attentive and makes sure you will get value for money. We have tried others and they don't come close.

I have never done any fishing before & after spending a morning on Harry May's Boat Trips I will definitely go again...and again. There were lots of beginners (as well as keen fishermen) on the boat and Matt was excellent at helping everyone. We caught lots of fish and had a fantastic time! Got to take lots home to put...

This is the second time we have booked a trip with Harry. This time we had both boats. 8 adults and 12 kids. We went on Capain Harry's boat, the kids loved him especially when he let them smash the fish on the head. I would use Harry again and again. I know some people have had bad things to... More

We opted for the three hour Deep Sea fishing trip and were certainly not disappointed. Having read the fantastic reviews we were sure to give this a go on our short break to Lyme Regis. Matt was friendly, funny and informative and made everyone feel comfortable during the trip. We managed to catch whiting, pollock and mackerel which was eaten... More
