A 3hr inshore sea fishing trip aboard Brighton's premier leisure fishing vessel, BIF1. Followed by a hand's on session at the Fins & Forks kitchen centred around whatever you have skilfully plucked from the Channel


Your day starts by being greeted at the marina before embarking on a 3hr inshore sea fishing trip aboard Brighton's premier leisure fishing vessel - BIF1. Captained by the one and only "Fishy Rob". Robin is Brighton's resident sea angling expert and writer of a top 10 UK sea angling blog. With his guidance & tuition, you WILL catch your supper.
Species you can expect to catch are Bass, Squid, Mackerel, Plaice and Neptune willing, maybe a few seasonal surprises.
The best thing about going out on BIF1 is that fishing using lures (artificial imitation baitfish) = no bait. No bait = no stinky bait fingers!
Once you have emptied the channel and are back on land the day concludes with a preparation and cookery masterclass at Fins & Forks HQ centred around whatever you have skilfully plucked from the water. Here you can expect to learn the secrets of how to get crispy skin EVERY time, our killer Bass Tacos, and our famous "Classified" Chilli Salt Squid, plus some other seasonal favourites depending on your catch of course. Even if you don't manage to catch (which is a genuine rarity for Rob's clients) The Fins & Forks kitchen is always stocked with freshly landed Sussex species ensuring you get to prepare, cook and most importantly eat some of the freshest seafood you will ever have the pleasure of. We often find it beneficial to cook using our procured fish and seafood allowing customers to take home their freshly prepared catch (prepared, vacuum sealed and ready for the pan ) to allow clients to replicate the skills and lessons they have learned in their own kitchen and to share the joy with other family members who may not have been able to join for the experience.
National Park Experiences is a curated collection that brings the stories of our National Parks to life. Each experience offers an authentic insight into the landscape and special qualities of a National Park.

This adventure is perfect for individuals and small groups, and can be tailored for:

  • Charity fundraising
