A highlight of our trips down south is a trip out with Harry mackerel fishing. You don't book, just turn up and wait at the end of The Cob and jump on one of Harry's boats when they come in. Obviously the trips are weather dependant and Harry doesn't know until the day what the weather will do so you... More

Hi Harry thank you for the fishing this morning it was a pity that two people didn't make it even though you waited. Sea was a bit bumpy a few fish caught thanks to your skills and knowledge. Grumpy gramps

On holiday from Northern Ireland and had really been looking forward to a Harry May boat trip. Had read fantastic reviews on trip advisor and drove for over an hour and a half from our holiday cottage to Lyme Regis to enjoy the Jurassic Coast and a boat trip. No indication on the web site of a requirement to book... More

Ian N Very very sorry to read your review and to learn how disappointed you and your family were about not being able to go out. I have looked back to see what was happening on July 3rd in the afternoon and immediately I remembered that we had very strong winds that day which had been building all day and... More

Fab friendly trip, Harry was helpful chatty and knowledgeable. We caught our own lunch, fed the seagulls and felt safe in the hands of a experienced sea faring local. Good for all ages, we even accommodated my mum who has trouble walking...reasonable price for a great mornings' activity. We were even recommended a fish and chip contact who prepRed our... More

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
