Marlin Fishing in South Africa |
Durban's warm Indian Ocean waters along the East coast of South Africa offer some exciting Marlin Fishing, and with the great weather on South Africa’s East Coast
the season is long starting at the end of Spring throughout the summer months
and into the beginning of Autumn. Our season is from October through to
May, with the best months from December to April. Sailfish can be caught for a much longer period from September through to June.
Blue Water Charters specialises in Marlin and Big Game fishing off Durban
during the summer months and our boat is well rigged out complete with
out-riggers, fighting chair and Furuno Electronics, our Marlin tackle is all
We have years of experience and a good record.
We are always busy during Marlin season with many Marlin Fishing trips which
keeps us up to date with conditions and patterns.
Please understand that there is no Guarantee that you will get a Marlin on one
of our trips, if it was easy then everyone would be doing it and the
conditions which are out of our control dictate the many variables.
We almost always get by-catch on these trips in the form of Dorado,
Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo.There are some big Yellowfin Tuna out in the deep off
Often our clients book us for several days which is best to give you the
best chance at landing your Marlin.
We have satisfied many of our guests from all over South Africa and around
the globe with a Marlin catch, but there are those days when one cannot
raise them no matter how hard one tries, we have a lot of experiece and
knowledge of local conditions, we know our waters well and we have a
properly equipped boat with all the right gear and so can offer you the best
chance to get a Marlin off Durban, but we cannot gurantee one, we will at
all times give you our best efforts and service.
We have a variety of Billfish in our waters:
- Black Marlin
- Blue Marlin
- Striped Marlin
- Short bill Spearfish
- Broadbill Swordfish
- We have heard about White Marlin in South African waters and even seen
pics, but have yet to see one for ourselves.

The Thrill of Marlin Fishing
By Mike of Blue Water Charters
You leave home in the early hours, before the sparrows awake, the air is crisp and fresh and there is a light breeze blowing on your face, the sky is black and the stars are clear and bright.
You make your way to the coast and it gets a little warmer on your way down, the window is open and you get the first feel of fresh air blowing on your face.
You arrive at your boat and it is methodically prepared and checked, you then swing the motors breaking the early mornings silence and make your way out feeling the fresh ocean air blowing you hair lightly.
The motors are warm now and you push the throttles forward, the boat leaps out the water towards and orange line on the horizon, the wind is now blowing in your hair and you are filled with anticipation for the days events, enjoying the freshness of the air, the wide open space as the sun pops its head out from the horizon and the roar of the motors as you hurtle towards the sun.
The sun then rises and makes a golden highway on the water, you here birds cry, and the water swishing past your hull.
You arrive at your first way point, set your lines and make your way out towards the sun following the golden highway whist scanning the horizon for any activity.
You see something in the distance, the game is on and you head towards it, as you arrive you hear the out rigger snap, this is the moment, and the split second seems like forever as you turn around to watch the rod suddenly bend the line go tight and the reel starts to growl and you look up to see a Marlin leaping out of the water repeatedly making splashes as it hits the water, everyone on the boat is filled with adrenalin as the hook is set, scuttling around clearing the lines whilst the rod stays bent and the reel peeling line.
The fight is on, you realise why you do it, a calm smile comes over your face and a battle of wills ensues until you get this mighty Marlin to the boat, you are excited beyond words, photographs are taken and the magnificent Marlin released.
The boat is underway again the lines are out and your excitement levels are dropping as a silence falls over the crew, and at that point you discover that this Marlin is not enough, you need another one,
you are hooked!
