The Boat - Bite Adventures
The boat is a North Sea Catamaran and is powered by twin 200hp four stroke Honda outboards. She is a fast and stable 9 metre catamaran designed to stand up to commercial use. The stability and power give a fast comfortable ride and make her the perfect charter fishing boat. We can get out to our fishing spots more quickly giving you more time fishing and less time steaming. Speed and stability for the best fishing experience. A refit in early 2019 saw increased deck space for extra fishing room, extra seating areas, additional gear storage areas and the latest fish finding sonar and GPS systems installed on Bite Adventures. It is now easy to walk around the wheelhouse for those big fish that give you the run around! Check out Bite Adventures in action in the video below:
The Skipper - Robin 'Chippy' Chapman
I have been fishing for 20 years out of Penzance. I started as a crew on another charter boat when I was 15 with a well known local skipper (Nicky Morse). I learnt a lot in my time there but after 6 years it was time for a challenge. We got a family boat with a commercial licence. Once I had the licence I had to go out and find fish on a regular basis, to pay for the license fee. After a couple of years taking friends out on the family boat, I decided, or should I say that people I know, and people that have fished with me told me to become a full time charter Skipper, which I did and never looked back. In the last 5 years I have been the skipper of the winning boat in our local Sea Sports open boat competition on 4 occasions. It's a great Competition to be involved in, bringing fishing friends from all over the country together for 1 weekend (August bank holiday). This competition is open to any angler willing to join us for the weekend. For any info on this please Contact Us. When the weather is not so favourable I am still looking for fish off the shore, to weigh in to the local angling club (Mounts Bay). Cornwall is well recognised as one of the best counties in the British Isles to be able to target a great array of different species from the boat and the shore.

Our Fishing Trips
Lo Kie Adventures
We have launched a second boat to run alongside Bite Adventures to meet the demand for our fishing trips. The new boat is called Lo Kie Adventures and is skippered by Kieren Faisey, who has worked several seasons crewing on Bite Adventures. There have been many fine catches on board Lo Kie since it's introduction and Kieren will be sure to put you onto some fine fishing. You can find out more info on the new boat at the Lo Kie Adventures website.
