Optimist charters are based in Brixham but offer customers a
personalised package tailored to their needs. Given our
fantastic location and knowledge we have a wide selection of
wrecks, reefs and sandbanks, within an hour's steaming and
can fish mid channel. We also have strong links in the
channel Islands meaning we can also offer 3, 4 or 5 day
bookings where we can fish the reefs and banks around
Guernsey and Alderney. We can operate out of our home port
Brixham or can pick you up in Paignton, Torquay or Dartmouth
and Tide permitting Babbacombe or Teignmouth.
About the Skipper:
Our friendly captain Birdseye
lookalike, Nigel, has been fishing for over 35 years and was
brought up in Guernsey before moving to the UK in his 20's.
Since then he has continued fishing (much to the frustration
of his wife) and has skippered many boats over the years and
is very experienced. Nigel holds Qualifications from both
the M.C.A. and the R.Y.A.
Optimist offer's a service from Brixham and Torbay, our charters
are planned to your requirements and nothing is too much
trouble (we even offer bacon sandwiches early morning, or
pasties lunch time on day long trips free of charge, so
really do have you in mind...)
Nigel has an extensive knowledge of
the area and is happy to help out the complete novice or
provide a service for the more experienced fisherman.
We look forward to catching some big fish with you soon.
