We have all the equipment on board; surfers simply need to bring a towel, swimsuit to wear under the wetsuit we provide, and perhaps a snack for after. And a smile!

Bite Adventures, Going Shark fishing out of Penzance is a great day out with the chance of catching that fish of a lifetime like our best blue shark of 2010 of 186 lbs. The two main types of shark caught are the Blue Shark and the Porbeagle with the occasional sighting of the Large Tail Fin of the Threasher Shark. We personally have not had the chance to fight a Threasher Shark, but one was caught by commercial Fishermen last year of over 1000 lbs just a couple of miles off Lands End.
