Heliox Fishing Charter – Hout Bay

Landing a big Tuna is on many an angler’s bucket list – tick it off of yours! Heliox Fishing Charter will take you out of Hout Bay and put you right on top of these prestigious predators off the coast of South Africa.

Skipper Delon Walker is happy to have you join him on this offshore angling adventure. You’ll be fishing from his 25’ Carry Cat – a purpose-built vessel for fishing the waters off of Hout Bay. Her center console layout allows you to chase the bite all around the deck.

You’ll go toe-to-toe with some of the most prestigious pelagic predators in blue waters. Bluefin, Yellowfin, Bigeye, and Skipjack Tuna can all be targeted with Delon. He’ll provide you with all the tackle and expert advice you need to have the best shot at landing one of these beasts. You can go after them year-round; there’s no need to plan your vacation days 6 months ahead.

The trip lasts for 10 hours, giving you plenty of time to land that dream fish.

Whether you’re a seasoned sea wolf travelling the globe for the next challenge or a novice who wants to try landing the famous Tuna for the first time, Heliox Fishing Charter is the way to go! Book a trip today and make the first step on a fishing journey you’ll remember for years to come.
