The basics about our charters

We have a good reputation and catch rate with many satisfied customers.

We offer good value for money trips, we are not the cheapest.

Our aim is to give you a comfortable, fun and memorable day out at sea. All our bookings are exclusive, we do not share or mix bookings. In this way you can do what you want along with personal attention.

The boats are run by very experienced skippers who are passionate anglers. We cannot guarantee any fish, we always give our best efforts at all times, we have a good track record and mostly produce good fish and sometimes some really big ones, but there are those days when it just does not happen no matter what you do, if it was that easy we would call it catching and not fishing.

If you do not have experience, don't worry that is our job, we will assist and guide you all the way and never make you feel stupid. We only book out the boat exclusively, we do not share or mix charters Prices are for the boat, not per person.

Prices include all bait and tackle unless otherwise mentioned (Fly tackle excluded) Food and refreshments are excluded, you can bring your own or we can arrange catering for you Fishing license is excluded (See note below) The fish you catch are yours to keep, if you do not want them we will donate them to those in need, we do not sell fish

A 50% deposit is required to confirm the booking
No deposit means that your booking is not confirmed
Balance is payable in cash before we depart, or an EFT to be cleared in our bank the day before departure
Cheques and credit cards are not accepted

Our Boats

Fat Girl - Max 8 persons for Fishing, Max 10 persons for Cruises
Our 10.4m Sport Fisher boat powered by 2 x Yamah 250Hp motors is ideally suited for a relaxing fun day out at sea for the family or group, for those who do not want to fish the fore deck offers a great platform for sun tanning, there is seating on the fly bridge where one can really take in the view and observe the nature around, watch the birds, sometimes we see Dolphins that swim by the boat and even Whales can be seen in the distance. Or if you like you can just chill in the lounge area or even take a nap whilst the others are fishing.

Nawty Girl - Max 4 persons for Fishing, Max 6 persons for Cruises
Our smaller Boat “Nawty Girl” is a 6m (19.6ft) Catamaran powered by 2 x Mercury 90Hp outboard motors and ideal for smaller groups, she is quick and gives a comfortable ride. The boat is well equipped with tackle for game and bottom fishing, along with good GPS/Fish finder electronics. Nawty Girl has 2 crew, skipper and deckhand 4 persons for offshore fishing 6 persons for cruises and harbour/backline fishing.

Each boat has a deckhand on board to assist. Our boats are legitimate bonifide charter boats and have full safety equipment and SAMSA licensed. All tackle, bait etc. is included. Food and refreshments excluded. Our boats are moored at Wilsons Wharf in Durban harbour which is where we launch from. Prices are for the boat, not per person. We do not make up groups or share charters



Cancellation policy

If you cancel your charter with us, you will forfeit your deposit, the reason for this is that we sell time and we have now lost that day.

If we cancel for whatever reason e.g. Boat out of order etc. your deposit is fully refundable if you are not able to reschedule. If the trip has to be called off due to bad weather for safety reasons (This is the skippers sole right), we prefer to reschedule, but understand that this is not always possible and will refund your deposit. There are no refunds in any way for returning early due to seasickness, we also do not go back to shore to drop sick people off and go out to sea again. If the skipper deems a guest not fit when out at sea he will return at his own discretion.

If you arrive late from the agreed time your trip will be shortened by the time you are late, as we often have another trip.

To Bring With Light Rain Jacket, Towel, Jersey if a cooler day or night trip, snacks, refreshments, 2 litres water pp, sunglasses, sun screen, good hat and fishing licence. Quick dry clothes are always better but not essential.

NB: Please consult your chemist if you require sea sickness tablets as we are not allowed to supply you with these.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:
You are required by law to have in your possession a valid fishing license on any saltwater fishing trip. You only require a standard fishing licence which must be in your name and is available at any South African Post Office. You do not require the additional boat fishing permit as only one person on the boat is required to have this and this is held by the skipper. Due to current legislation we are not able to supply you with a fishing license on the day NB: Should you fail to bring this along we will not be held responsible for any fines.
