Deep Sea Fishing

Ballycastle, Rathlin Island and the West Coast of Scotland have many tides meeting together which makes it an excellent venue for fishing. Our boat "Torra" is available for deep sea angling trips for all your types of fishing departing from Ballycastle Marina. We can cater for beginner's right up to the most experienced anglers. Rods and reels for all types of angling are available on board free of charge with every charter. Tackle and Bait can be arranged to be on board at your request. Free tuition is available for beginners and novices.

The spring and summer produce excellent fishing for species such as Pollack, Bass, Smoothhound, Bull Huss, Triggerfish, Gurnard, Mackerel, Conger, Tope and various species of Ray. Also in the winter months we will be targeting species like Cod, Skate and Whiting but a few.

Wreck fishing off the North Antrim Coast and around Rathlin Island is some of the best around and can produce a good selection of quality fish, Pollack, Bass, Cod, Ling, Conger, and Coalfish are just a few species to name, but other quality fish can be had from around the wreck, such as Gurnard, Tope, Bullhuss and Spurdogs. April through until early November are the most productive of times of the year for offshore wrecking but there's always plenty to be had!!!

Our fishing charters can be arranged to suit your needs. Trips of 3, 4, 6, 8 and 12 hours can be arranged, also night fishing trips for the experienced angler.

Book early to avoid disapointment during peak times.

Sea Safaris

Day trip safaris for groups can be booked in advance for special days out like golfing trips, whiskey runs, siteseeing and shooting trips up along the west coast and islands of Scotland.

Sunset photography and bird watching trips can be arranged around Tor Head, Ballycastle Bay, Rathlin Island and Giants Causeway.

Another favourite of many people is seeing the rope bridge at Carrickarede from the sea. We will be running charters from Ballintoy Harbour down the coast to the rope bridge. Along the way you will pass Sheep Island and the beautiful coast line full of wild life and maybe the odd basking shark. Ballintoy harbour is also made famous by the hit TV series Games of Thrones.

A lovely trip for all the family.......
