GREG PITT SEA FISHING

Private charter fishing & boat trips


Welcome to our website​

A family fishing business in Keyhaven since 1960!

Exclusive private charter fishing & boat trips for groups of up to 6 people.

Specialising in 5 & 6 hour private charter inshore fishing trips for smaller groups of anglers, families, friends & workmates etc.

We also run two shorter and very popular private charters, the 3 hour mackerel/sightseeing trip

and the 2 hour sightseeing only boat trip around the famous Needles rocks & lighthouse area.


Due to now being in tier 4 we will not be running any trips for a while, hopefully our trips will start again in April 2021 with 5 hour fishing charters and 2 hour sightseeing charters available over Easter and throughout April.. Please see our latest post on the News/blog page.


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 at the moment we're running just the one boat "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 on all our fishing charters we limit the maximum number of people allowed on board each trip to a maximum of 6, by keeping the numbers on board our fishing charters down to 6 people 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 specialise in mixed species inshore fishing trips around the Needles area at the western end of the Isle of Wight for smaller groups of anglers, families, friends & workmates etc of up to 5 or 6 people maximum on our longer 5 & 6 hour charter fishing trips, our shorter 3 hour mackerel/sightseeing charters and 2 hour Needles sightseeing charters are also limited to 5 or 6 people maximum at the moment due to the Covid 19 restrictions although all being well we're hoping the restrictions may be relaxed a little by the summer of 2021 to allow us a definite 6 people on the 3, 5 & 6 hour fishing trips and possibly up to 10 people on the 2 hour sightseeing trips but we'll have to wait and see. 🤞

Our 5 & 6 hour fishing charters are all about the experience of having an enjoyable day out on the water taking in the relaxing scenery while fishing at anchor for a mixture of species. We encourage catch & release fishing on our trips but of course you are very welcome to keep a fish or two of the more edible species for dinner if you want to.

***Sorry but we do not do specialist Bass fishing or wreck fishing trips.***

 Please have a browse around our website to find more details of the fishing or boat trip to suit you.
