You don’t have to head out miles away into the ocean to find excellent fishing when it’s waiting right there, off the coast of Ramsgate! Bonwey Charters will put you on the hottest bite around, whether you’re a novice or a seasoned sea wolf.

Bring your entire fishing crew with you as Captain Paul Cumber’s vessel can hold 10 anglers at the same time. She’s 35’ long and has ample space on the back deck so you can cast freely. There’s plenty of seating space around so you can take a break between hook ups.

Capt. Paul will take you after a wide range of species local to United Kingdom’s waters. You can pick and choose to go after Codling, Rays,
European Seabass, Dogfish, and Nursehound, as well as anything else that takes the bait. He’s a highly skilled and experienced fisherman with over 15 years of experience fishing the waters of the region.

Bonwey Charters welcome anglers of all ages and skills aboard, and Captain Paul is always happy to teach families of beginners and help them land their first fish, as well as to take out veteran anglers looking to bring home some dinner or catch a personal best.

All trips include a seat for every angler, toilet, and everything you will need for the day’s fishing, as well as tea and coffee, hot snacks, constant help and tuition, and all fish caught cleaned and filleted ready for cooking.

Whether you’re looking to spice up your UK visit or are a die-hard fanatic looking for the hottest new catch, booking a trip with Bonwey Charters is the right decision!
