I'm Simon, owner and skipper of Deep Blue. Originally from Newcastle Upon Tyne, I spent nearly twenty years working in Oxford for a science research company before relocating to Eastbourne in the summer of 2021.
I left my career in Mechanical Engineering to take up a life on the waves.
I am also a wedding/event photographer around my boat charter trips. I am an experienced videographer and drone pilot. I was trained to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) standard to fly drones commercially, and held a PFCO for a number of years.
I hold a valid commercial endorsement from the RYA
to skipper chartered motor boats upto 24m in length.
Deep Blue is a purpose built, and very stable 8.6m AMC catamaran power boat.
Deep Blue is certified by the Maritime & Coastguard Agency, and has all the safety provisions for 10 passengers and 2 crew.
The boat is powered by two, 200hp Honda petrol engines, capable of speeds upto 30kts, getting you to the fishing spots faster than the rest.
There is a marine toilet accessible from the deck.
The boat is regularly maintained and serviced in, and out, of the water.
Our sponsors and suppliers.
Penn Fishing have been amazing and offered to supply Deep Blue with new rods and reels for the Sea Angling Classic 2022.
Deep Blue is now able to offer Penn Fathom 2 reels and Penn Prevail 2 rods for use on our fishing charters.
The boat is now stocked with Sidewinder lures.
We use Navionics maps to put you in the right place, at the right time.
Our fishing trips take you past some very famous local landmarks, such as the Eastbourne Pier, the chalk cliffs of the Seven Sisters and the Lighthouse at Beachy Head.
