Fishing the Sea around Wales from a Boat


Port Eynon
Fishing and exploring the coast by boat is one of the most magical ways of seeing Wales. Hundreds of rocky coves, small bays, and tiny islands make a fantastic view for those lucky enough to be afloat and the sandbanks, deep gullies, numerous wrecks and offshore reefs make a super habitat for hundreds of different marine species. The huge variety of locations that Wales offers in close proximity means that whatever the Atlantic hurls at us there is an opportunity to launch, sail and fish in comparative safety. If a species hunt is your goal then it is hard to think of any of the northern European species that cannot be caught by an angler fishing around the coast of Wales.

Whether you have your own boat or you prefer to fish from a charter vessel, you are truly spoilt for choice in Wales. Most ports and harbours can boast at least one Charter boat while the sheer number of little ports and launching slips means you will not be long before finding a suitable place to get onto the water, most at a very modest price.
