We have earned the reputation of being South Africa’s top tuna charter based on our performance, professional service, quality outfit and passion for fishing. We are the only charter to have caught three officially weighed 100kg yellowfin tuna in one season, including the second and third biggest yellowfin tuna taken on rod and reel in South Africa.Based in Hout Bay we are centrally located to the best fishing hotspots around Cape Town. Throughout the year we can get you into the best fishing the Cape has to offer both inshore and offshore.Offshore we predominantly target yellowfin and longfin tuna and inshore we target yellowtail and snoek. It is possible to catch both species of tuna under the correct conditions inshore, having landed yellowfin tuna in excess of 60 kgs on a number of occasions at Cape Point. In my opinion the yellowfin tuna we target off Cape Town are one of the strongest fighting fish in the sea. There are few places in the world that can compare with the quality of our fishery with multiple 50 to 80kg yellowfin tuna being the norm on a typical charter and with fish reaching over 110kgs - Captain DaveWe offer a variety of charter options, including conventional tackle, fly fishing, spear fishing and pelagic birdwatching.
