IMPORTANT. on booking the whole boat, we are coded for 12 places which has to be covered, it means what it says not expecting to pay for 6 places when your mates let YOU down. Organisers of trips please be aware best to collect all funds before sail date to protect the others in case of let downs, responsibility is the group who have booked not the skippers.

REMEMBER TO BOOK PRIOR TO COMING ON HOLIDAY TO GUARANTEE YOUR PLACE:- If you are planning a holiday or just a short day and full day trips, fishing from Great Yarmouth . easy parking and boat access. We will also do longer trips as required. Booking for winter fishing running trips daily.

    We had a fantastic time out with Richard and his dad today. We caught some bass and whiting. The whole experience was great. Richard and his father such lovely people. We'd definitely come back and recommend to our keen fishing friends and anyone that would like a brilliant day out.

    Skippers Reponse: Thank you for you review it was a pleasure to meet and take you all, hope to see you all again take care and stay safe Richard

  • 5-star Neil Warren (07/07/2021)

    We recently spent a fantastic day fishing with Richard aboard his excellent boat, Blue Dawn. Richard provided all the tackle we needed including replacements when we lost lines during the day and it was of high quality - as was the bait, also provided. This meant we managed to catch significant Whiting, Smooth hound and Huss throughout the day in more than enough quantity to feed 17 people in the evening for dinner. The boat was very spacious, in excellent condition and we couldn't recommend the day or the skipper highly enough. If you book with Blue Dawn charters you will be well looked after - Richard knows his stuff and is a thoroughly nice bloke into the bargain. Neil, friends and family.

    A great day out! Richard the skipper was very friendly yet professional and knowledgeable helping to keep us on the fish all day. All 5 of us had a great day and would not hesitate to recommend Richard and his boat Bluedawn.
    Thanks again for today, hopefully be back on board soon!

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Bradley delighted you all enjoyed your fishing great to meet you guys looking forward to next time

  • 5-star Graham Hunt (16/07/2020)

    Myself and my son booked a trip with Richard on Bluedawn on 16/7/20. Richard is clearly an experienced skipper , his knowledge of the area is good and nothing was too much trouble. As soon as we set anchor my son caught a 2 1/2lb dog fish (??) and in the following 3 hours we both had numerous Whiting. If your looking to book a sea fishing trip I would highly recommend booking Bluedawn.

    Skippers Reponse: Thank you Graham so pleased you both enjoyed yourselves looking forward to seeing you both again at some point in time

  • 5-star Gabriel Han (16/07/2020)

    I had a great time on Bluedawn with Richard as skipper on Thursday morning. His knowledge of the local waters and fishing techniques is amazing, and his international travels broadened his horizons making him an extremely enjoyable companion. I always felt safe on the boat and was given the appropriate level of safety info at the start. We fished with mackrell and squid as bait and caught about 50 good size whiting between the two of us in just three hours - often two fish at a time! Many thanks Richard for a great fishing trip, hope to come back with a couple of friends soon!

    Skippers Reponse: Thank you Gabriel, so pleased you enjoyed your trip hopefully we will see you again in the not so distant future
