The waters around Guernsey are beautifully clear and clean, and as such they support an abundance of marine life.

Shore Fishing, Guernsey, Channel Islands

Keen fishermen and anglers can enjoy coarse or deep sea fishing and there are plenty of charter boats available for hire that will take you to fertile waters and ensure a healthy catch for the day.

Fermain Moorings is a great fishing spot down the valley from Fermain Valley Hotel and if there aren’t any swimmers around, you can fish off the pier or off the rocks if there are people in the water. Species found in this area include Black Bream, Grey Mullet, Plaice and Red Mullet. Relax afterwards with a drink on the Ocean terrace overlooking Fermain Bay.
