Some fishing trips, particularly bream trips in the creeks may require an early start or late finish for best results, depending on conditions and tides. We do put our customers first with regards our operating hours, if we are on the fish and you want to stay an hour later to capitalise then we will be more than happy to stay.

We strongly advise you inform friends and family of your trip with us and pass on our contact details.

Nearly all our trips are within 2 miles of the shoreline and mobile phone signal is generally good.

We unfortunately do not allow dogs on our fishing trips. Dogs will be considered for sea safari. Obviously we are a small vessel so three guests with two lively German shepherds, for example may compromise our safety at sea.

All trips on Rock Island Charters shall not be aborted for seasickness unless all paying guests are in agreement
