Private charters with experienced skippers

Chief skipper Ian Aitken has over thirty years experience at sea. Raised in Sudan, Tanzania, Egypt and Cyprus, he was employed as a windsurf instructor in Menorca and as a deckhand in Monaco before turning to photography.

His extensive career includes travelling the world on photographic assignments for the Magic of Italy, Magic of Spain, Magic of Portugal, Crystal Active, Crystal Ski, Simply Ski, Sunsail, Hidden Croatia, Rough Guides (Madrid, Barcelona, Costa Brava, Lisbon, Mallorca).

Since 2020, he has been working closer to home in North Norfolk. He set up Dogleg Charters in 2021 in order to share his love for and knowledge of this amazing coastline. 


In addition to private charters for those looking for adventure as part of a weekend break, day trip or longer stay on the North Norfolk coast, Dogleg Charters work with commercial film and video production companies all year round to provide access to unique locations. 

Providing extraordinary backdrops for all kinds of shoots, and with extensive knowledge of film and photographic requirements, contact Ian to find out how we can help you to reach the locations that others simply can’t! 

Charters are also available all year round for bookings to support with open-water swimming training, offshore surfing and more. Whatever your requirements, we’d love to help.
