Plymouth Boat Trips is a family run business, operating cruises, private charters, ferries and fishing trips from Plymouth in Devon, our city by the sea.
Plymouth Boat Trips started out more than twenty years ago as, Fish ‘N’ Trips, a small business founded on a life-long passion for fishing by Ben Squire. With a £1000 loan and a £500 grant from The Princes Trust, at the age of 21, Ben purchased a boat and took the first mackerel and deep sea fishing trips from Plymouth. Since then the business has flourished to become Plymouth Boat Trips Ltd. A family affair, Ben’s brother Dominic Squire joined the company in 2013 and, together, they now own and manage a fleet of eight passenger boats.
Fulfilling another dream, to serve the fresh sustainable fish that he loves to catch, Ben opened The Boathouse Cafe, situated on the quay where the boats depart. Passengers on our fishing trips can now enjoy their catch, cooked straight off the boat – it doesn’t get fresher! Ben’s fish and shellfish boat, The Fiona Mary, also supplies fresh fish, crab and lobster straight to The Boathouse Cafe, which is served up daily.
With our fantastic team of booking staff, skippers and deckhands, we pride ourselves on delivering the best customer experience to all those sailing with us.
