Cross-Channel events including unorthodox crossings:
Fire Fox can cater for various cross-channel events, functions and social gatherings. Whether you need safety boats to escort a diver across the channel or to patrol an area designated for a function e.g. air-show displays, regattas etc. we can provide you with a professional service, safety and guidance.
We can organise and arrange schedules and can also provide advice on any proposed unorthodox channel crossings be it in a rowing boat or even your bath tub!

Even the possibility of a family sightseeing trip - please contact us for details.

BOOKINGS (Fire Fox or Grey Fox) - TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
When taking a booking by telephone or e-mail we take this as a legal binding contract. If booking in advance we will require a deposit, however, it is hard for us to get a deposit from people at short notice.
Once the trip has been booked the balance will be due on the day of the trip. The agreed fee for the boat is the cost of hiring the boat for a specified period and is payable regardless of the number of passengers on board.
If the customer cancels the trip and does not provide at least 4 weeks' notice, then the entire fee is payable unless we are able to secure an alternative booking for the same date and at the same rate.
If we cancel the charter due to adverse weather conditions, problems with the boat, illness or indisposition on the skipper’s part, if possible, the customer will be notified in advance and either an alternative date will be offered or any deposit paid will be returned immediately.
All customers are requested to telephone after 6p.m on the evening before the trip to check for favourable weather conditions. If after due consideration of various sources i.e. shipping forecast, inshore forecast, TV, internet etc. in the opinion of the skipper, the conditions are not favourable for the following day the trip may be cancelled and if possible an alternative date will be offered.
If the skipper decides due to deteriorating weather conditions to return to port, only that proportion of the trip spent at sea will be payable.
However, any insistence of return to port by the customer qualifies as a complete trip and the full fee is payable.

Make sure that you are familiar with the fish sizes that you are allowed to keep if you are lucky enough to catch that species.
Generally we do promote a catch and release policy on the boat, but anyone who wants to take their catch to eat (as long as it's above the minimum size) is of course, permitted to do so:
