Shark Charter


 Share

Recommended Posts

Me and boat buddy want to have a go for sharks. Both want to do a couple of trips with an expert before we even consider doing it alone on our boat. I emailed a charter boat and was quoted £1,275 between 4 of us for a 12 hour trip. Is that the going rate? Any recommendations for a charter on the south coast?

That seems excessive. We had a chart BFT trip booked in September and that was £800.

South coast will probably only get you a (slim) chance of a thresher. If you head to the south west you'll have blues available, and more plentiful than round our way.

That price seems high to me.

i would say around £800 would be average for a days sharking. i would go either West Wales or cornwall for a charter

Bloody hell! 
 

Andy Truelove on Broadside charters is £170 per head out of west wales. 

Rob Rennie will be about £200 per head from Milford haven. That’s rod hire and chum all in for a 12+ hour trip. 
 

You’re getting a bit late to get places but Rob may have individual spaces left and is an excellent skipper. 
 

Dan Hawkins out of Ilfracombe on Reel Deal offers sharking trips, he has 2 boats and does well, he’s a bit cheaper at about £160 for a blue shark trip and should have dates still. 
 

These are guys I’d charter with no problem. Can’t comment on others as don’t know them well enough and others I do only take full boat charters.
