Welcome! We provide a varied, interesting and exciting range of fishing trips from 2 hour trips to whole days out. The Alaminta boat is the perfect vessel to take a leisurely, pleasure cruise to the famous Needles, via Colwell Bay, the colourful sands of Alum Bay and Totland Pier, not to mention Hurst Castle. Hen parties and Stag groups are encouraged and a good time is guaranteed. It is possible to privately Charter our boat, she is available for organised groups, families and friends of course. We operate from the beautiful, historical Yarmouth Harbour,Isle of Wight. Pay and display parking is easily available.

First time fishing for all of us and it was a great day with lots of fish. Would have been even better if the skipper had introduced himself. Would highly recommend and would go again.
