Captain John and first mate, Andy provided a FABULOUS experience of cruising around the Bay after I went on the Brixham Fish Market tour.

This is a local, family-run business and it shows in the honest, down-to-earth quality interactions and genuine love they have for their vessel and the service they provide.

Thank you!

We were down in Brixham on a long weekend to recharge the batteries. Got chatting to Ross in the kiosk on the quay on Saturday as we fancied going out for a whizz round the coastline, they just had fishing trips planned with the possibility of a private trip if no one booked for the last one of the day. He took our number and duly called to say people had booked fishing so no opportunity us. However, next morning he texted to say they had a trip available that morning so we went out with 'Cap'n John' and were joined by another couple with two young kids. John's an amazing bloke, knows the coastline like the back of his hand and has superb boat handling skills - we could almost reach out and touch the cliffs at times we were so close. He knew exactly where to go so we saw plenty of wildlife and even a sleeping seal at one stage. We got chatting about how they were the last independent operator left in Brixham (the rest having been snapped up by the corporate rival) and how they were diversifying to keep going by running trips where you catch the fish then bbq it on board, fish and chip trips etc etc. Anyone wanting a fishing trip, tour round the bay etc should head for these guys - we're going back down in December and they will be our first port of call...extremely recommended!!

We had a fabulous hour with Ross and John aboard their boat today, who took us on a tour of Brixham harbour and bay - we went out hoping to see seals, and saw two. Will definitely be back to try to see dolphins in the summer months (none out to play today). From start to finish these guys were superb - from giving us advice on where to park to avoid charges, through to the ongoing entertaining and informative commentary about the wildlife in the area, to allowing our children to go up to have a go at skippering the boat - they loved it!
The price was highly reasonable, our advice is to go with this local company who are based in Brixham and are proud of their town and heritage - not some other large corporation who will happily take your custom but not give you the personal touch.

Thank you - a wonderful experience :)

Absolutley top marks for these guys...met us at brixham instead of torquay because of my bad time management ..took the boat out even though there was only 2 of us..probably barely covered their fuel costs and still delivered a friendly, professional session...really lovely genuine fellas and we caught loads of fish to take home!! Thanks john and Ross...will defo b back...john and daniel
