We are a family run charter business, operating from the port of Brightlingsea on the Essex coast.
Seawatch I is a 10 metre, Blyth Catamaran, she is coded for 12 passengers +2 crew, MCA Catorgory 2 (60 miles).
She is a fast purpose built angling boat, fitted with a comprehensive electronics package. Her impressive 5 metre beam makes her a very stable and comfortable platform to fish from. Seawatch 1 has a large deck area which continues around the island wheelhouse, without any obstacles, giving each angler more space to fish from.
The Thames Estuary is a vast area of sandbanks and gulleys and Brightlingsea gives us easy access to these prolific fishing grounds - keeping steaming times to a minimum - giving you more fishing time .
This area is home to a variety of different species throughout the year, with the most sought after being BASS – TOPE – SMOOTHOUNDS and THORNBACK RAYS in the summer months. COD & WHITING during the winter time, although many other species are present and most trips produce a mixed catch.
We pick up from the Brightlinsea harbour jetty, which will allow you to step straight on board Seawatch I through her side gates.
Seawatch Charters caters for serious sea anglers & novices alike – with tuition available if required. Tackle hire is also available.
We also run educational & sightseeing trips to our local windfarm sites, as well as Corporate days – diving trips – film hire – cargo/crew transfers – survey hire and safety boat hire.
