Sea fishing boat trips and shore angling

The whole family can enjoy a trip out into Cardigan Bay on a fishing boat to catch mackerel or crab under the guidance of experienced local fishermen. Sea angling boat trips are available from Aberystwyth and New Quay to fish for tope, bass, bream, mullet, skate, turbot, flounder, huss, herring and and mackerel.

Join popular fishing trips on the Dunbar Castle 2  or The Three Fishes from New Quay - there's a choice of trip length from 2 hour excursions to 8 hour trips.

Fishing from the shores of Cardigan Bay is also popular, especially for ‘sewin’ (sea trout) and sea bass. For some great family fun, there are crab fishing competitions at the Cardigan Bay Seafood Festival at Aberaeron in July, and at Aberystwyth's Sea2Shore Festival in August.

For details of local angling guides and tuition see the Ceredigion Angling leaflet ( PDF)
