About Kelley's Hero Charter Service

The Skippers:

Ian Dale and Bex Florence are both fully qualified charter skippers with commercially endorsed Yachtmasters. As they have their tickets, this means 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.
