What a great way to spend an hour. Our first ever fishing trip resulted in catching 4 mackrel. We had a great 'skipper', fantastic weather & loved every minute. Granted the sunshine was a bonus but our son would have loved it regardless. Would highly recommend a trip out to sea to catch mackrel on one of Harry's boats.

You haven't been to Lyme unless you have been out mackerel fishing with Harry (or Matt)... both are super out on the sea. We have been out twice, two years in a row with a collection of 8 of our family ageing from 9 - 62 in age and both times were special for different reasons and with everyone enjoying... More

As part of a birthday surprise, my wife decided to take me deep sea fishing in Lyme Regis. There are a number of similar operators down on The Cobb but actually, what led my wife to book with Harry May was that she telephoned several of the local operators and found Harry the most pleasant (extremely friendly) to deal with...

A great sea fishing trip, loads of fish and Matt our skipper was brilliant. A must 'to do' in Lyme Regis and we'll definitely be back for more when our freezer full of fish has run out!

I had my reservations about attempting fishing for the first time at sea, but was talked into it by a friend and I'm so glad I went! Harry was extremely friendly and made sure everyone knew what they were doing, and not only that I caught literally hundreds of fish!! (By hundreds I mean about 20 good size ones, but... More

I went out on the 29th June with Harry for a 3 hour deep sea trip. It was flat calm and warm weather and we went a few miles off Lyme. I have been fishing for about 15 years / since I was 8 and was very lucky on this trip to catch a 6lb Bass ! Exaggerations aside, it... More

A fantastic family fishing trip. I'd never fished before and my son was scared of boats! Harry May made our trip stress free, relaxing and fun. One hour later we had caught 16 mackerel! 5 of which I caught! BBQ fish that we had caught ourselves made this a day to remember. Thank you Harry May :)

As part of our school's Coast Project we joined Harry May and Matt aboard their boats (the Harry May and Sunbeam) with 13 excited school children (aged 7 to 12) to fish for Mackerel. We boarded the boats and set off out of the harbour with the sun shining and the sea breeze in our hair. Harry and Matt were... More

Well Vanessa what can I say after a review like that? Except maybe my boat is called Marie F not Harry May but I don't care what you call my boat after that. I fell completely for the two lovely ladies you put on my boat, one manned the camera while I really needed the other one and had her... More

Coming from someone who works amongst sixty cadavers, I can only say, "I've never seen so many dead bodies!" Harry absolutely made our afternoon, and trip to Lyme Regis. We came away with a tremendous haul, countless epic photos, and memories for years to come. A seasoned, salty seadog, Harry was courteous and conscientious, with just the right amount of... More

Phoned Harry after breakfast and arranged a fishing trip for five of us the same lunchtime. Harry is a lovely guy - very friendly and knowledgeable, he guided us to a good place for catching mackerel. We had plenty of fun and enough fish for lunch. Harry kindly filleted the fish for us and arranged for a local guy to... More
