We visited yesterday afternoon. Despite none of the visitors onboard catching anything, the kids had a good time trying to catch mackerel. I think we were just unlucky, shame as we'd planned to barbecue our catch!

Thank Jane M
harry3287, Owner at Harry May Boat Trips, responded to this reviewResponded 2 weeks ago

Thanks Jane M for that. All of us skippers try SO hard to find mackerel for our passengers, none of us like returning to port empty handed, especially where children are concerned, but it happens. Thanks for the 4 stars Harry

Well done CarolDavies thank you very much for that, I love the idea of people taking their fish round the Cobb and having them cooked straight away. I like it, you like it and Matt the chef likes it!!

Loads of fish. Loads of sun. Loads of fun! This was our first time out on one of Harry's boats, but definitely won't be our last. Our kids (5 and 7) really loved it as did we.
