One of Whitby’s more comfortable boats, Alliance is a workhorse that is also exceptionally comfortable and its deckspace coupled with organised storage ends up giving more time with your line in the water! Fitted with cutting edge electronics alongside a skipper with a lifetime’s working experience, Alliance offers beginners and experts alike the best chance of getting onto some cracking fish in numbers
Additional Description:

Alliance operates all year round- fishing wrecks and reefs from Spring through to Summer as well as Winter Uptiding.

The Whitby boat fishing peak season is Summer when we fish the many wrecks that are prolific off the waters of Whitby as well as some of the best cod grounds in the UK.
We run trips of between 8 and 12 hours- call us with your requirements and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

Our peak season trips generally sail at 7am with Winter uptiding trips setting off between 7 and 8.30am.
The boat fishing off Whitby is fantastic for cod all year round, while Autumn is great for double figure ling, Late Spring for some beautiful pollock and Summer sees mackerel, gurnard, haddock and catfish (woof) all feature in the catches.

If you need hire gear we have quality set ups available and can give advice on what terminal tackle and bait you will need for your trip.
On top of an excellent days fishing, you are likely to encounter some incredible marine wildlife, with dolphins, porpoise and minke whales all regularly sighted off Whitby.
Alliance will typically have 10-12 anglers on board during peak periods, but our close relationship with sister boat TROT ON means that we can combine our capacities to cater for larger groups such as stag parties, family occasions, corporate teambuilding or angling club outings.
As a member of the Whitby Charter Skippers Association we will be fishing in the Spring, Summer and Autumn festivals with the aim of putting our anglers onto the amazing cash prizes on offer that are up to an amazing £5000 for 1st place in the Summer Festival

    We hired this boat for charter as part of a stag do. From start to finish we were looked after and made sure we had a good time. A couple of us had never boat fished before and we were coached brilliantly and all had many catches. The skipper was excellent and clearly knew his stuff. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and we will be back very soon for another trip. Thank you so much.

    Hi all,

    We have had a steady couple of weeks fishing out of whitby
    Some good days thrown into the mix.
    With cod into double figures and ling upto 18lb we have managed to find a good stamp of fish aswell. Fish have been falling to shads, bait, and baited "fast drop" jiggers
    The W.C.S.A. autumn festival is starting on the 3rd of September with places available for great tides give Shaun a call to avoid dissapointment.

    Friday saw us on Alliance again for another trip out with Skipper Shaun Elwick and once again he showed why he is one of the most respected skippers in Whitby, From the first drift on a wreck on the 5 mile we were into fish. With the Algae bloom clearing by the day Shads have started fishing better with Rhubarb and custard sidewinders being the prefered ones to use. I managed 3 codling to about 5lb from the first 6 drifts. Then it was time for a move onto another wreck for Slack water. Shaun told us to fire some bait into the wreck and this paid dividends with my mate Perry landing a 9lb ling which he was over the moon with, as this took the boat sweep All together there must have been a good 60 fish caught by the 5 anglers aboard. We also managed to bag a few Mackerel on the way back in as well for the BBQ so overall a great day out with a Great Skipper on a top boat. What more can you ask for? (Maybe a bit of sunshine....) I can't wait for my next trip out aboard Alliance

    Wednesday was another GREAT day fishing aboard Alliance, Whitby's latest addition to the Charter fleet . From stepping aboard at the start of the day the Banter was free flowing just as much as the free tea and coffee supplied by Skipper Shaun Elwick. The Ex-lifeboatman and Whitby local has over 35 years experience fishing out of Whitby and that showed from the way he put us onto the fish from the first drop. When the tide started running again we moved onto some ground on the 5 mile mark and true to his word Shaun found the fish again. with baited hookki's doing the damage Even with the difficult fishing conditions of late due to the Algae bloom being in full swing we still managed several species of fish including Cod to 8 lb, Ling to 6lb, Pollack, Pouting and Whiting, No Mackerel showing as yet though.
    Shaun supplied 2 of the lads with the boats NEW top quality hire tackle Sonic rods and Shimano TLD reels these two first time anglers (Sorry lads I can't remember your names) had a great time and booked to come back next month as they have now caught the fishing bug.
