welcome to Phil White Charters, the place you need to come for a great day out fishing the Thames Estuary from Bradwell on Sea in Essex with one of the most experienced and friendly skippers on the east coast.Whether you are a novice or experienced angler, we cater for all.
Dont take my word for it-check out reviews on

Also check out From The Waters Edge TV where you will find all the action with big smoothounds.



 Our boat is moored at Bradwell Marina (CM0 7RB for sat nav) in Bradwell on Sea, where we have a walk on/off pontoon, have access to the Thames Estuary in most states of the tide and if the weather blows up we can get back in to shelter.
The Marina has secure car parking (£1 coin all day) and public toilets 24/7.
We are very lucky here in the Thames Estuary because we have a vast area of sheltered waters, this means that we can usually give our customers a day's fishing when other boats around the coast are tied up, from October through to April most of our fishing is close inshore, even in the Summer when we have to go further we still have shelter from a lot of the sandbanks and can often get a day in depending on wind direction and tides.

Please feel free to browse our website, all information on species, availability, prices etc is all here, please send an email for any enquiries or phone Phil, we hope you enjoy your day afloat and please tell all your friends.      


 Let me tell you a bit about myself. I have been a skipper running Charter Angling boats for 30 years. The last 18 years i have been in charge of John Rawle's boat whilst he has been in the Florida keys for 4 months of the year, i also work with John throughout the rest of the year as relief skipper whilst running my own boat as well.  I first started sea fishing when i was about 14 on a boat called the Argonaut skippered by Owen Woolley, i caught my first cod and skate with him and i was hooked !!. At around 16 years of age i started crewing for John on his boat the Vicky Emma.
I took my Boatman's licence at 18 years of age and have been a skipper ever since , now i also hold an RYA Commercially endorsed licence, first aid, sea survival and vhf so you can be rest assured that you are in safe hands during your days fishing.


CHINOOK 11 is an Offshore 105 with two 180hp turbo diesel engines giving a comfortable 15 knot cruise. She is a big spacious boat with a large deck space for all the anglers and a heated cabin big enough for everyone to shelter when the weather turns, she is a very stable and comfortable fishing platform, all the very latest electronics available, flush toilet, full cooker and oven. She is licensed for 8 anglers up to 60 miles from a safe haven.
