Funfish Trips.

Funfish Trips are a family run business based in Brixham . They are predominantly a fishing family by trade and between them have over 100 years of experience in the fishing industry. Their inshore trawlers were traded in years ago and the family began sharing this experience with others through the pleasure boat industry.

Want to know what it's really like on-board? I took my two daughters on a trip with them and wrote about the great day out here.
