Good trip

Fishing trip experience was good, skipper very helpful only down side is if it is low tide there is a lot of trekking involved and some ladder climbing to board the boat!

I booked this a week in advance for my Birthday on Monday the 15th. What a waste of time! Customer Service was non existent. Obnoxious, Lack of information, and the website needs updating for anyone to find it. DONT google 'Emma Kate Padstow' and try and find it that way. You will end up in someone's house.... Or look at... More

We booked the 2 hour mackerel fishing trip. It was the first time my 8 year old son had been on such a trip and this was the highlight of his holiday. Couldn't believe how many fish we caught and how quickly. Great trip for beginners. 2 hours was just the right amount of time too.

Booked a trip for 8. They took a contact number for us. Not sure why because when we turned up, they announced that the trip was cancelled due to rough sea. Fair enough, that's not their fault but no attempt whatsoever to let us know. Poor service.

First of all can't thank the company enough. This was a surprise treat for our 7 year old grandson and when we got stuck in traffic around the Cornwall show we thought he'd miss out. We left in plenty of time but it was obvious we would make it for the 11 o'clock sailing. My wife kept them updated with... More

We had originally booked the 4 hour reef trip in the morning but it was cancelled. They were very good and let us know in time and we then booked on the 2 hour Mackerel trip in the afternoon which in hindsight was for the best as I didn't feel too good on the boat! I managed to catch a... More

This is the second time out with these guys! The first wasn't too fruitful but Augusts trip out was amazing! Choppy seas made me nervy with the kids but the skippers made us all feel at ease and were more than happy to help us novices! We ended up with about 30 mackerel and the kids were pulling in 2/3...

I came and did this with my family as a child 30+ years ago and to bring our kids and see their reactions was wonderful. A fabulous experience and 'Captains' Tony and Lee made it all the more fun for everyone. Mackerel for tea!! Definitely something not to miss for grown ups and kids alike.
