You're in safe hands...
Sit back and enjoy a 3 hour sightseeing trip on the calm and sheltered waters of the river Torridge and river Taw. This is such a beautiful area and Gary would be proud to show you places that you can only see from the river such as the shipyard, the new Tamar lifeboat close up (he is an active RNLI crewmember) as well as Appledore and Instow from the river. If time and tide permit, see the maritime little white town of Bideford and its historic bridge. This is not a true guided tour but Gary will be happy to share his knowledge and favourite landmarks with you and answer any questions you may have about the local area. Just got your first boat? Need a local knowledge trip? Let me help you and show you the local area…   >>>
Come aboard "Fender" my 18ft open boat. A family boat for many years, which now caters for small groups. Boat fish in the sheltered waters off Appledore where the picturesque river Torridge and river Taw meet the Atlantic. All fishing equipment and safety gear is provided on board, just simply book your place, turn up and dress for the weather! You do not have to have any experience of fishing, your skipper will help (including the mucky bits like baiting the hook and taking your fish off!) Fish for bass, bream, flounder, mackerel and gurnard with 2, 3 and 4hr fishing trips available. Catch it, keep it, cook it – talk to your skipper (who is a qualified chef) for cooking tips for your catch of the day...     >>>    

I have lived in the area all my life and have over 20 years experience with the RNLI at Appledore, 16 years as a helmsman.  During my time with the RNLI I have been awarded a Bronze Medal for gallantry, see video above...   >>>
