Mackerel Fishing Tenby launches from Tenby Harbour, but when the tide doesn't permit them to go from the harbour wall, they launch from Castle Beach.

The skipper of Seren Y Mor, Roger was featured on the ITV show the Harbour. Take a look and get a sense of what harbour life means to all those that work and live around this picturesque seaside town.


The Trip lasts for one and a half hours, which gives you loads of time to catch plenty of mackerel for those summer evening BBQs.

After a 5 - 10-minute boat ride to a local fishing hotspot, you will be guided and instructed on how to use the equipment provided. Mackerel Fishing Tenby uses traditional methods of boat fishing and uses feathered lures to attract the mackerel. You can also occasionally catch other species of fish such as Sea Bass, Gurnard, Dogfish and even Squid.

Whatever you catch, you can keep, and you can ask any member of the crew to give you a demonstration on how to prepare the fish for cooking. They may even have a favourite recipe to share with you.

All tackle and rods are supplied, but if you wish to bring your own rod and lures, you are more than welcome to do so.


The Seren Y Mor is an Ex Liverpool Class Single Crew Lifeboat, formally named the Frank and William Oates.

The Frank and William Oates was originally stationed at Eyemouth from 11.03.1937 to 12.12.1951. During her time in Eyemouth, she launched 17 times and saved a total of 9 lives.

She was later sold in 1964, renamed The Seren Y Mor (Star of the Sea) and came to Tenby. From 1964 onwards she carried passengers back and forth Caldey Island for 40 years. She was then sold again to a local fisherman to become a Mackerel Fishing Boat. For many years Seren Y Mor has made daily Mackerel trips from early April to mid-September.

Blue Fin is our 8.5-meter Starfish, she is made out of Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) and has a capacity for 12 passengers.

Blue Fin has spent most of her life in Pembrokeshire, starting as a trip boat running out of Saundersfoot with a capacity of 30 passengers. She has been moored in Tenby for around 10 years, and Rob had owned her for four years when she became part of our fishing family.
