Generally fishing activities are undertaken from Sagittarius, but Oceanic will also be used for fishing trips when there are no divers on board.
Sagittarius is a Blyth Workboat 33, a catamaran that provides outstanding sea keeping abilities for a vessel of its size (10 metres long and almost 5 metres wide). The width of the boat provides a large deck area which is great for angling sorting kit, and drinking tea.
Trips can be booked by groups or individuals; the fish caught will depend on the season, but may often be cod, ling or pollock.
Half day, full day and evening trips available
