When to go
All year round
We happen to have some pretty nifty kayak fishing instructors on the team so you're in the best hands to try and catch your lunch or dinner. We’ll be fishing off the kayaks using handlines for delicious fresh fish such as black bream, seabass and mackerel. We will pause along the way to identify and collect edible plants and seaweeds to go with any catch we may be lucky enough to hook!
Our trusty kayaks allow us to get access to the wonderful creeks, islands and chalky stacks that are host to a whole array of wild edibles. Hop aboard a Fore adventure to source your supper with us by kayaking, fishing and foraging for the ingredients you need. We run half days or full days where you get to cook up a fantastic feast alfresco with us and your new adventure companions on the beach.
This tour is suitable for age 12+ and will last for about 5 hours.
We normally schedule the Kayak, Fish & Forage trips to either leave in the morning (9.30am) or early afternoon (1.30pm) - depending on the tides. Please submit a booking request and we'll get back to you specific times for your choosen dates.
If you can't wait to take your catch home to cook, we can arrange a wild cooking session to cook up your fishy feast alfresco on the beach if you join in with the feasting element of the day by booking on our kayak, fish, forage & feast priced at £120pp.

Jade and Dan, the founders behind Fore Adventure, hop, skipped and jumped at the chance to get out of the city and relocate to Dorset with their (then) baby for a slice of the good life. This is Fore’s story. It was was born from a wish for a lifestyle that echos a brilliantly English version of the American dream.
With Forest School training, Beach School Practitioner titles, BCU Kayak Coaching qualifications, NCFE Ethnobotany and Bushcraft training with the renowned Woodland School under their belts, they know the craft they love.

My wife and I had a great time on the Kayak Fish Forage and Feast adventure. Josh and Dan were great guides, very enthusiastic and helpful. Dan's foraging information was very interesting and I learnt a lot. The barbecue feast at the end was a brilliant way to finish the day, the food was amazing and big thanks to the chef and Jade for preparing the feast.
