Charter Boat Season is officially underway for Anyfish!

Our Tiny Marketing Co

Dotty, the Anyfish charter boat has been out and about pretty regularly throughout this year (she’s robust enough to handle wild, wintry Solent waters) but she really comes into her own in the Summertime. We’ve spruced her up, scrubbed her decks, given her a full safety check and some general maintenance - and now she’s ship shape and ready for a long summer of cruising across to the Isle of Wight, fishing on the Solent and messing about on the river.

We had a little trial boat trip on the Anyfish Charter Boat last week.

The weather was changeable but when the sun came it it was glorious. There’s always plenty to see all around the Hamble Marina - lots of lovely wildlife and the opportunity to imagine yourself owning one of the superb yachts which are inevitably moored up around the place. We then pootled about for a hour or so, making sure everything was in order and then headed out into the Solent for some fishing.

There are lots of great reasons to hire the Anyfish charter boat…

- You can have a relaxing day cruise to the Isle of Wight...


You can chill out in the sunshine, taking in the view whilst we head out into the Solent waters. Bring your own refreshments, or we can provide something to suit. Once we get to the Isle of Wight, there’s plenty of shopping and exploring to be done, or we can just deliver you to the pub for a slap up lunch and pick you up after an hour or two. On our return you can just enjoy the wind in your hair, or if you’d like to try a spot of fishing we can provide tackle and tuition. 

- You can learn to fish or improve your fishing skills...

When it comes to fishing, the Anyfish team are pretty well versed. Pete can host you and your friends on a fishing day out or a shorter trip if that suits you better. If you have your own tackle and fishing kit, you can bring that along or if you’d rather we supply it you only need to ask. We can help you to learn the basic techniques or if you’re more experienced we can give you a few tips, or leave you to your own devices. 

- You can get closer to the action at Cowes Week...


There are plenty of exciting activities happening in the Solent this year. As well as regular regattas and plenty of sailing events which make great spectator sports, the annual boat-a-rama which is Cowes Week is the perfect opportunity to take a cruise over the water. There’s lots to look at and do and you avoid the ferry queues too

- You can celebrate a special Birthday or Anniversary...

It can be quite tricky to come up with a great way to make a special birthday or anniversary super memorable. Booking a charter boat trip however is a brilliant way to get together with friends or family and do something a little bit different. You can bring bubbly or a Birthday cake, we can provide a delicious picnic lunch and we can treat you to a truly fun and entertaining trip out - to wherever you want to go - and at whatever pace you like.


- You can make it a Boy’s Day Out...

If you’d like an alternative to a day on the golf course, a day out on our charter boat could be just the ticket. Getting to grips with a fishing rod, sharing a few beers and catching up in style - now that’s a great way to while away a few hours with your buddies. If you split the cost between you, it’s very good value too.

- You can hang out with the family for a while...

Finding something that the whole family can enjoy together is sometimes a bit of a challenge, but there’s something for everyone on our charter boat day trips. Whether your preference is relaxing in the sunshine and taking in the view, learning a little bit about boats or spotting wildlife, or if you fancy trying a spot of fishing - we can create a bespoke day to suit you all - that’s a great way for everyone to catch up.

It’s only the start of Summer now, but it’s the perfect time to plan. If you know you have a celebration to arrange, or you want to make the most of an upcoming event, why not get something in the diary now?
