Sea Fishing Trips

Whether you are an experienced or novice angler, or maybe you would like to try sea fishing for the first time, then we are here to help. We aim to give you your ultimate deep sea fishing experience, with the chance to catch your "fish of a lifetime".

We offer a full range of trips from our 4.5 hour half day trips, to 5 day away trips between Alderney and Dieppe; this includes our very popular offshore reef trips, and our trips for drifting the wrecks. We can tailor our trips to suit your requirements.

Equipment can be available for those who need it, bait can be pre–ordered and tuition is always available.

Catamaran – Safety & Comfort

Kelley's Hero Charters operates 2 11m South Boats Catamarans: Kelley's Hero III and Kelley's Hero IV. These vessels were built on the Isle of Wight, and were designed and built for our local Solent Sea Conditions.

Both vessels are around 5m wide, which means there is ample deck space for our anglers, and are licenced for 12 passengers; however, for your comfort we recommend no more than 8 anglers.

Our average cruising speed on both vessels is 18–20 knots which means we can get you to the fishing grounds as safely and as comfortable as possible.

Kelley's Hero III and Kelley's Hero IV are both coded to MCA Category 2, and are licensed to carry 12 passengers, and 2 crew. This means that we have all the relevant safety equipment on board and we are inspected annually to make sure that we maintain these standards.

As they have these licences, this does mean that they have passed their sea survival, first aid and firefighting courses.

They have both been keen anglers since they can remember. Ian spent his childhood fishing from small boats in and around Langstone Harbour. Bex spent her childhood on fishing boats around Scotland and she has been skippering on the South coast for 10 years.

Matt is our relief skipper. He has been skippering with Kelley's Hero for the last 3 years. Matt has been a keen fisherman since as long as he can remember, both on the shore and on the boat.

“Went offshore see fishing on Kelley's Hero Charters and has a great experience once again. Clean and tidy boat, skipper Bex and husband Ian well organised, knowledgeable and brilliant as they are approachable and well involved in the experience. They put us on the fish every time, catching congers over 50lbs thoroughly worth the money. Great day awesome experience will definitely be booking up again very soon!!”

“Went out with Ian and Bex today as a last minute stand in. On boarding the boat it was clear to see that all the other eight fishermen were very experienced . Firstly as a semi–novice I was a little overwhelmed. But before we even got out of the harbour I was at ease. Great bunch of guys plenty of banter. We all had a fantastic day's fishing the wrecks and the reef thanks to the skill and knowledge of Ian and Bex. ”
