Shoreham is a busy working port (see below) and there are facilities for mooring angling boats within the Marina. There is one charter boat operating out of the port.
There are three main mooring areas at Shoreham – Lady Bee, Aldrington Quay and Nicholsons marina . Lady Bee Marina is just inside the Port’s main shipping canal and has 120 pontoon berths. The facilities available include water and electricity, shower block, chandlers, restaurant and bar and parking. Aldrington Quay is adjacent to the Hove Enterprise Centre business units and accommodation. There parking spaces, shower facilities, electricity and water on quayside within walking distance of Portslade railway station, buses and shopping centre. Finally Nicholson's Marina, lying east of the Texaco fuel terminal, provides pontoon berths for small commercial fishing vessels.
The fishing is varied and concentrates on wrecking and rough ground fishing. Shoreham Harbour and Beach are both popular with beach angler . Sadly the nearest tackle shop is in Hove but for more on the local angling contact Reg Philips at the South Coats Angling Club (details elsewhere on this page).
