Experienced Skipper

Tom has always been drawn to the sea, be it on a surfboard, out on leisure boats or diving to explore what lies beneath.

After picking up a fishing rod and catching his first fish nearly 20 years ago on a small fishing boat with his father, Tom’s love for fishing and boating continues. 

Over the years, collecting both experience and merit on different  types of vessel, He is now the proud skipper of Manta Ray. Tom has an in-depth knowledge of the waters and coastline in the area - he will ensure your day will be one to remember!


The Boat

MANTA RAY is quite unique in the UK, being a 10.6 metre Swiftcat built to comply with the MCA standards and is fully certified to operate up to 60 miles from a safe haven.

The hull was developed in South Africa and is assisted with Hydra-Foils. This combined with being powered by twin F300B Yamaha outboard engines  enables MANTA RAY to achieve speeds in excess of 45 knots, and cruise at 35 kts. So why not come and join us to experience powering across the water to your  destination, aboard one of the UK most unique designed charter boats.

What makes us different
By joining us on Manta Ray,  your charters are tailored to suit your individual requirements which, if required can  include sightseeing for the family combined with fishing to suit your personal preferences.
