Went on a mackerel trip on Saturday 16th August and a great experience from start to finish. Called Harry half an hour before we wanted to go, agreed on time to meet the boat and turned up bang on time. Went out with Matt as our skipper and he was brilliant with my 3 boys, we caught over 20 fish... More

Contacted Harry to book a trip after seeing his website and its great reviews. After emailing a week before he advised me to call on the morning to confirm and to check the weather was ok. As it was a very nice day, he advised me to call upon arrival at Lyme Regis Cobb to ensure I definitely got a... More

We went on the last trip out on Saturday lunch time, blustery conditions creating some interesting sea swells but we had a great time, this was my lads first trip out and he enjoyed every moment especially pulling in a couple of Mackerel. Harry is a great Skipper and kept us involved throughout the trip, no time to think about... More

Well Simon B thank you very much for that, the trip you were on happened just four days ago but that was the last trip we have done due to the very windy weather coming from that dying hurricane! You were out as it was just building up, I promise your next trip will be much calmer! Very best wishes... More

After persuading my boyfriend to visit Lyme to show him what made up many of my childhood summers, we decided to go out on a deep sea fishing trip to make the most of our stay (3 hours, 8.30-11.30). Being total novices, we were hoping that we would catch one fish between us, but in fact managed to get 4!!... More

Booked and had booking confirmed by email well in advance. Turned up on time to find he had over-booked and wouldn't take us out, gave a cock-and-bull story saying we should have phoned (no mention of that in the email booking). wouldn't trust this guy - much better go with on of the others on the cob.

Never in all the years i have been doing this job have I ever accepted an e mail booking and not told the customer to phone in advance to check on the weather and the exact time the boat will leave, if you had done that you would have had a good experience plus if I could;nt do it i... More

Harry May is a wonderful host. We went deep sea fishing, the first time we had ever fished. Harry tailored the information he have you to your level and there were fishers of all levels on board. Despite a quiet morning at sea it was still a lot of fun.

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...
