We offer two different types of guided tours and fishing advice. Our fishing safaris take place on professional fishing boats and are being accompanied by a skipper. The skipper holds live-long experience in fishing the local waters and will take you as far out on the sea as weather and other circumstances permit.
Alternatively, we offer half or full day fishing advice. Your trip in a boat rented from us will be accompanied by one of our experienced hobby fishermen. This guide will show you how to use and navigate the boat, present you the best fishing grounds around and warn you of dangerous areas you better avoid. Furthermore, he will advise you competently on the equipment to be chosen and the use of chart plotter and sonar.
If the weather is fine it is not unusual for guides to suggest a slight detour to one of the island in order to grill the caught fish on the campfire.

If you travel by other transport means but by car, we will gladly help you with reserving a taxi fro or to Hellesøy at a fixed fare. However, we would like to point out on the fact that these fares will not be below the ones for taxis you order yourself. We thus recommend paying the driver directly. Nevertheless, we will be pleased to order a taxi for you in advance.
All our boats are fueled with diesel that you may obtain from our fuel deposit at Hellesøy Harbor. This facility is not opened at regular hours. If you wish to obtain fuel, you are thus requested to make a respective arrangement with our local hosts (phone: 950 75 420).
