New Year 2015

 Last year we had a varied time with fishing, whale watching, bird watching and general Family Fun.

What about the dolphins ? they are very playful and curious.Common Dolphins



While you may not be a fisherperson the views of the Kerry coastline are spectacular, very few have seen our county from the sea.Esk Tower

The Blasket Sound is a place of rapid currents and big fish I hope we have a calm year again like last year, around mid March I will be starting booking trips for the Spring fishery I will be charging the same as last year €500 charter rate for up to 12 anglers.



Those of you who would like to learn some boat fishing and are new to this please contact me. I have all the different types of gear you will need and my advice is also freely available. Normally start with some jigging feathers them on to booms and even trolling. Trolling the bottom is an expirement I will be trying soon, I have 2 Cannon electric downriggers ready to fish. I’m looking forward to this type of fishing around the many peaks in our area.

Kids get a great kick out of catching their own fish, adults like it also as we have a ‘Catch & Cook’ plan. you catch it we prepare it you eat it at the local pub now that’s novel !

Nothing beats your own Cod Pollack or Mackerel cooked fresh after a day on the water for adults a ‘pint’ or two will complete the experience.

So Guys and gals start booking your trip and remember the weekends are usually busy. If you do not have a group 10/12 don’t worry you could join another small group of like minded fishers for a day.

Charlie is missing !


I remember this group we caught good mackerel early, at lunchtime I cooked the fish aboard and in a few minutes I had to return to the galley to cook more, the fish went down a treat, can’t beat fresh, I cook most days that are calm enough to enjoy the meal outdoors on deck.

Chilling out

Apart from the fishing we often come across Common Dolphins, Basking Sharks and Whales. Meeting a pod of dolphins is great as you can watch their antics from the bow as they bump and push each other.

The Searach Rock is east of the harbour and very popular especially for short trips.
