GREG PITT SEA FISHING
Private charter fishing & boat trips
Welcome to our website
A family fishing business in Keyhaven since 1960!
Specialising in 5, 6 & 8 hour inshore private charter fishing trips for smaller groups of anglers, families, workmates etc.
We also run two shorter and very popular private charters, the 3 hour mackerel fishing trip and 2 hour sightseeing boat trip around the famous Needles rocks & lighthouse area.
Unfortunately we will only be running one boat this year so the number of trips we can offer is reduced, we apologise for any inconvenience. Our 3 hour mackerel fishing trips and 2 hour Needles sightseeing boat trips are available to book throughout the summer holidays from 20th July to 3rd September.
Normally we operate two charter angling boats out of the picturesque harbour of Keyhaven in Hampshire on the southern tip of the New Forest National Park but for this year it will be just the one "OSPREY II" a 33ft Lochin skippered by Greg Pitt.
Osprey II is licensed and insured to carry a maximum of 10 passengers + 2 crew and is fitted with full life saving equipment as required by the MCA codes of practice, however the maximum number of people allowed on board each trip for 2020 is governed by social distancing guidance. We specialise in general downtide inshore fishing trips at a reasonable price for smaller groups of anglers, families, workmates etc of up to 5 or 6 people maximum on our longer charter fishing trips, our full compliment of 10 people can normally be carried on the shorter 3 hour summertime Mackerel fishing trips but again for this year the maximum number will be reduced by the social distancing measures. By keeping the numbers on board our 5, 6 & 8 hour trips to 6 anglers or less it makes for a much more enjoyable day for everyone (including the skipper) with less tangles and more room to move around on the boat. We fish the western end of the Isle of Wight mainly around the Needles area but also Christchurch Bay and the western Solent, fishing for a variety of species depending on the time of year. Our 5, 6 & 8 hour fishing charters are all about having an enjoyable day out on the water downtide fishing at anchor for a mixture of species.
***Sorry but we do not do specialist Bass fishing or wreck fishing trips.***
During the school summer holidays in July and August we also offer our very popular 3 hour private charter Mackerel fishing trips, these are great little trips for groups of beginners, workmates, friends & family etc and suitable for all ages. Full details about our mackerel trips can be found on the 3 hour Mackerel fishing trips page. Please have a browse around our website to find more details of the fishing trip to suit you.
NEW FOR 2020
We can also now offer 2 hour private charter sightseeing boat trips viewing the Needles rocks & lighthouse, Alum bay coloured sand cliffs and the surrounding area, these trips can be booked for any day that we are not already booked on fishing trips, please take a look at the 2 hour Needles Boat trip page for full details.
