An excellent trip. Harry May is a total legend. We all had a great time and we all caught fish apart from Richard but he's Spanish. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Absolutely brilliant trip for 6 intrepid travellers ranging from 5-43! We couldn't recommend this trip more highly. To have such fun and then get chance to eat what we caught later that evening was perfect!! Thanks so much Harry...we will be back! X

And we weren't disappointed! After getting Harry's number from the Interweb we rang him early doors to see if we needed to book - after following his clear instructions we met him at his boat and ventured out to sea - our party of six ranging from 5 years to 43. We got into paired teams and Harry showed us... More

My husband and I live in Bournemouth and usually go to Lyme Regis for a day out on a couple of occasions each summer. We have taken a sightseeing boat trip before and were ready to do the same again, however, the boat was full, Harry had a few spare places and suggested we may like to try our hand... More

No more of this sissy sightseeing for you Julia, from now on its got to be fishing for supper I suspect! Thank you very much for taking the time to write the review and I'm really glad you and your husband enjoyed the trip so much, maybe next time you could bring a cold box? I can usually point you...

Honestly, if you've never been deep sea fishing before and want to try I can't speak highly of this. A group of 7 of is went out with Matt, all having never been before, and it was excellent. Everything you need is on the boat, and the help and advice from Matt couldn't have been better, a great laugh too.... More

My wife and I went for a fishtrip with Harry May. When you are in the neighbourhood of Lyme Regis and planning on doing a mackerel fishtrip. Choose Harry May! We had a magnificent hour at sea. He was very friendly, humoristic and made my wife enthousiastic for fishing. He prepared our catch, me 1 and my wife 5, so... More

Thank you very much for that review, i remember this trip well, how most of the fish only went for one hook, the hook belonging to the lady! So glad such a simple thing made a big impression on your holiday but when you cook what you have just caught its got to be good hasn't it. Thanks again Harry More

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!
