I wisited Lyme Regis with my family during the Easter holidays and having found Harry on TripAdvisor I booked us in for a 3-hour deep sea fishing trip on the Easter Monday. Fortunately the weather couldn't have been better, sunshine and beautiful, calm waters. The peace and tranquility of being out at sea with the beautiful Dorset coast on one... More

We had a lovely boat trip this morning with Harry May. The weather was perfect, warm and sunny. We didn't catch any mackerel but that gives us an excellent reason to go back for another trip soon!

I have been going out on fishing trips with Harry May since I was a young child and am still enjoying the same trip thirty odd years later with my own children! Harry never ceases to amaze me with his endless knowledge of the local area, his good humour and friendly, patient approach. Whether or not any fish are caught,... More

Well Sarah from Taunton thank you very very much for that review, wonderful stuff!! We are just putting the final touches to Marie F. and Sunbeam in readiness for the new season. The boats will be in the water by March 25th so as we are completely ready for Easter. We look forward to seeing this year. Thank you again... More

We've been coming to Dorset on holiday for several years and have been keen to go fishing for mackerel in Lyme Bay for some time. Finally the weather held and after texting Harry on a Sunday morning he actually rang us back to tell us what he was up to. What a great chap! We shared the Marie F with... More

Well MamaBobo I remember you and your husband and the dog, thank you very much for that review. That was about the last trip I did before the bad weather arrived, later that day you all came out we had a northerly gale by the end of that day and things have been wet and windy since. The trip I... More

Fantastic. Harry knew this was a bucket list task for me and he made it entirely memorable. Great character and so friendly. It was a beautiful day, we caught 12 mackerel but our prize catch was a 2kg sea bass. Unforgettable experience and one we will do again with Harry

My 14-year old son and I had a wonderful morning on a deep sea fishing trip with Harry May in August. My son caught 34 fish which was incredible ! (I was thrilled just to have caught 8.). We bought a cool box in Lyme Regis,at a hardware store afterwards and persuaded a fishmonger, in return for us buying a... More

A totally fabulous afternoon spent mackerel fishing with Harry - who coped remarkably well with 3 siblings and our 6 young children. Nothing could phase him. Great sense of humour and patience! Sun shining, lots of mackerel and laughs. A superb day out. Couldn't recommend the trip or Harry more highly! Thanks Harry - we'll be back again for sure.... More

My brother, sister and myself and 6 of our children had the most incredible afternoon with Harry, catching mackerel on the most idyllic warm and sunny afternoon at the beginning of September. Super relaxed, very professional and incredibly long-suffering with all our over-excited children. Nothing was too much trouble. And when it looked like we weren't quite going to have... More

Thank you both for those great reviews, sorry I've been a bit long getting back to you because it was a very enjoyable trip indeed, especially from my point of view and one I won't forget. You were all very great company, I never let children climb all over the boat like yours did but somehow it just seemed perfectly... More

Our group of 3 adults and 5 children (all under 5) went out on the Sunbeam with Matt last week and had a brilliant time! We called at about 11.30am and were told we could go on the 1pm trip. The weather was kind to us (a welcome break in all the rain we had been having!) and we had... More

This is my second review of Harry May's fab boat trips, the last was in 2011. I joined Harry May yesterday (31.08.14) on Marie F for the 3.30pm fishing trip, Harry took us straight to where he thought the fish would be and set us up with our lines as soon as he could.

Well hello Cider Boy Thank you very much for that, as of this date 4 09 2014 there are still loads of mackerel! It just goes on and on......and after a pretty dismal July on the mackerel we are in seventh heaven these days. So while the conditions don't change the mackerel should stay. Thank you very much again, oh... More
