Boat and Skipper Details

Licensed For: up to 12 passengers
Hours: 6hr / 7hr / 8hr / 9hr / 10hr / 11hr / 12hr Trips
Tackle Available: Yes - Contact Skipper
Bait Available: Yes - Contact Skipper
Boat Specification: Alliance has plentiful deck space along with folding seating. Your numbered fish boxes are secured in racks under the fillet and bait station built as an island wheelhouse (giving more space on the foredeck when conditions allow). 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

    I have had a possibility to sail with Shaun last Monday. He was very helpful and patient in the matter of advice for novices which we were at the subject of sea fishing (totally different experience in comparison to lake fishing). The boat is well equipped and has all you need to have a good fishing trip. But most important is the skipper who definitely knows a lot about the area and use it to give you a chance to catch as much as you can during the day.
    Shaun will be our first call in future trips.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Jacek hopefully see you again for another trip always a pleasure to make your trip a good one thanks shaun

    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.

    A meeting was held this morning by Whitby Charter skippers (W. C. S. A) and it was decided that we won't be sailing as yet. This is due to health and safety and insurance issues for both anglers and skippers. We will review this decision in two weeks from today.
    As always the safety of those sailing with us and ourselves is paramount.
    Thank you for your patience in these difficult circumstances.
    Thanks Shaun
