What we offer

Sea fishing in Ireland is a great way to relax and an even better way to see the spectacular south coast and the surrounding islands. We operate a fully insured and licensed charter boat from the picturesque fishing port in Ballycotton, East Cork. We also operate out of Cork Harbour and Youghal.

Angling Charters are offered with a qualified skipper on a full-day, half-day and evening trip basis. All trips will be tailored to suit your needs. Anglers will benefit from the skipper’s angling experience and local knowledge with advice and guidance on-hand at all times. All levels of anglers are catered for. Our licence allows us to operate 12 months of the year.

We provide oil skins, lifejackets and complimentary tea and coffee. We have a great range of new rods, reels and tackle for hire.

All charters have the provision of a safe and secure trip on-board and a comfortable stable boat with inside and outside seating and toilet facilities.

Anglers who go deep sea fishing in Ireland can expect to catch shark, cod, pollack, ling and haddock. Plan your fishing day trip in Ireland and charter our boat on a full-day, half-day and evening trip basis. Rates vary depending on your requests.
