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 smaller groups of people.

Specialising in 5 & 6 hour private charter inshore fishing trips for up to 6 people, ideal for friends & family groups 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.


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 up to 8 passengers and is fitted with full life saving equipment as required by the MCA code of practice, however on all our fishing charters we limit the maximum number of people allowed on board each trip as this 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 and up to 8 people maximum on our shorter 3 hour mackerel/sightseeing charters. 

Our 2 hour sightseeing charters viewing the famous Needles rocks & lighthouse, Alum bay coloured sand cliffs and the surrounding area can be booked for groups of up to 8 people on any day that we're not already booked on fishing charters. The 2 hour Needles sightseeing charters can also be booked for ashes scattering too.

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.***

RISING FUEL COSTS

We have always tried to keep our trip prices as reasonable as possible for our customers especially as we like to aim our charters at smaller groups of up to 6 people but over the last year or so our running costs have increased dramatically and up to now we have managed to largely soak up the extra costs. However the recent and ongoing huge increases in the price of diesel fuel for the boats is not something we could've planned for so not by choice we have been forced to raise the price of our charters a little to help cover the cost of the fuel now.

Apologies for the price increase and let's hope these crazy high fuel costs don't last too long.

Best wishes to all.

Greg.
