Angling in the North West of Ireland

The Northwest Charter Skippers Association has been truly blessed, that their operational area is in the most beautiful and scenic coastline of Ireland.

The coastline has many interesting and varied features from sandy beaches and estuaries to amazing sea cliffs, and craggy shores, all washed by the warm and clear waters of the North Atlantic Drift Current, which brings a wealth of fish species to our shores.

There is a large variety of fish species available for the Boat Angler, from Mackerel through to the fighting Blue Shark, and occasionally, the Giant Blue Fin Tuna. Light tackle fishing for Pollock is also very popular.


Whale and Dolphin Watching

For those of you With an interest in Eco – Tourism, the North West coastline is also lucky to be visited by such species as Dolphins, Porpoises and Whales. On many days you will also see the Basking Shark slowly swimming past gulping in large mouthfuls of plankton, or the oddly shaped Sunfish flapping on the surface to attract the gulls to come down and pick off its parasites.
There are fewer better places to be on a calm sunny day, than enjoying yourself gently bobbing up and down on a Northwest Charter Skippers Boat
