Sea Angling

If you wish to add variety to your fishing or the summer heat is too over-powering, then a days fishing on the sea is recommended. There is excellent sea fishing from the shore or boat with a large variety of fish. Many records for the heaviest types of fish are held in our waters.

The skipper John O'Shea offers a range of sea fishing trips tailored to suit the novice and avid angler alike. Hundreds of visitors have caught their first fish on his boat the 'L'Oursin', (French for sea urchin) and his experience in these waters is second to none. John's father was a Skelligs' boat skipper and his grandfather was the last man born on the now uninhabited Scariff Island so local sea fishing knowledge runs deep in his blood. Our fishing trips cater for groups and individuals and are fully licensed and Irish Tourist Board approved.

Our fishing trips can last from 2 to 12 hours and include: reef and drift fishing for pollock, mackerel, cod, wrasse, conger, ling and colefish. Deep sea angling for flatfish, conger, skate, ling, dogfish, ray and spurdog. Shark Fishing for blue, portbeagle and tope. John operates the Catch and Release Programme.
