White Star Boats

Mercury Boat Hire
Based on the Harbour Beach, opposite The Sloop, self drive motorboats to hire.
From May till October, St Ives Bay is visited by vast shoals of Mackerel moving to the natural flow of the ebbing and flooding tides in a North-East and South-West direction.
The Mackerel are the main catch of the small St Ives fishing fleet and Cornish Mackerel are landed daily on the harbour-side for distribution throughout the country. Strict rules for the conservation of fish mean that professional fishermen use hand-lines for catching the Mackerel, a traditional method of fishing and a skill passed down through generations of St Ives fishermen.
