I took my 7 year old son on a fishing trip from Yarmouth harbour and we had a fantastic morning. The lady at the shop is lovely, very friendly and informative. Bob took us out on his boat to fish mackerel and, again, he was brilliant, making a big fuss of my son and being very helpful. We were out for at least 2 hours and caught a fenomenal 32 mackerel!!!. I would definitely book again when we visit the island next. Highlight of this holiday for my son. Booking ahead definitely recommended as they get very busy and they do not overbook their boats.

Excellent boat trip to the Needles and Alum Bay, accompanied by superb weather in the early evening. This longer cruise of around 90 minutes was by far the best way to see the Needles and also the coastline from Yarmouth around to the Needles, having chosen this over the much shorter cruises provided within Alum Bay. Rob our captain was great, very friendly and knowledgeable about local history and sights.
We had a superb time and our family visiting from the USA also thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
Would strongly recommend if you are looking for a relaxing trip to see the Needles and the stunning coastline of this part of the island.
The trip was the highlight of our short break of 3 days on the island.

Very friendly service. Rob, the captain, was great - very knowledgeable about local history and geology. Very much recommended if you want to see the Needles at close quarters...

Thanks to both Rob and Sharon for a great trip

My wife and myself took their 90 minute-long return trip to The Needles.
Professional, friendly service with a personal touch. If you are looking for a great value boat trip from Yarmouth, I can only recommend them, they are very good. They also offer fishing trips.
