As well as fishing trips, our boat TRUEBLUE can also be used for bird and wildlife watching along the Jurassic Coast, lazy days afloat to visit local beaches or neighbouring ports, or as a stable platform for photography or watching sporting events such as powerboat and yacht racing. Full corporate days combining any of the above activities and including a choice of food can be tailored to suit customer’s requirements.

Four day Alderney trip to include a variety of angling. A small tide so plenty of opportunity to fish at anchor. This date coincides with a weekend and a bank holiday. It is also Alderney Sailing Club's regatta, so expect a good time socially. Expect such species as Black and Couches Bream, Turbot, Brill, Tope, Bullhuss, Rays, Conger and Pollack, among others I'm sure. Cost includes B&B in a single room. £600 inclusive.

    GCSAC 3day trip Alderney skilled skipper experienced crew cheap B&B what more do you want? had a great time. The first day good with plenty Bream Scad Launce The 2nd 3rd day was catching.Bass 40Lb+tope I can say that both Steve an Garyy (crew) tried their hardest to put us on the fish and were full of good advice and very helpful in Two of the nicest charter staff I have met. There was a great friendly atmosphere on the boat which is very comfortable and cruises at a nice speed. .

    Skippers Reponse: Thank you David for your kind words. It was in fact a four day trip though, with day one, the transit day, seeing us fishing ground mid channel for Rays, tope, bream and conger. Overall 21 species landed. You were part of a lovely group of guys and for Gary and I, it was a pleasure to have you aboard.
