Blue Atlantic Fishing Charters

It’s time to book a trip to South Africa and go fishing with Blue Atlantic Fishing Charters. Run and managed by Captain Tim and his crew, these guys will do everything they can to get you on the fish and hooking your trophy catch.

You’ll spend the day on the walk around 28’ Butt Cat boat, recently restored in 2018. Five anglers can comfortably fish without crossing lines. Powered by twin 140 HP Suzuki engines, you’ll be at the fishing grounds before you know it.

On the offshore trip, it’s all about the Tuna! This includes species such as Yellowfin, Longfin, Bigeye, Southern Bluefin, and Skipjack Tuna. As the Tuna are migrational, different species can be caught at different points of the year. The Tuna fishing is great here, as the waters are high in nutrients where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet, just off of Cape Point.

Inshore fishing runs year round. You’ll be catching the likes of Sea Bream, Shark, Cape Snoek, Kob, and Yellowtail Kingfish.

They offer trips for inshore fishing and offshore fishing. These offer very different fishing opportunities! The minimum age for children inshore fishing is 5, and for offshore fishing, kids must be over 11.

Food and drink will be provided on the trips. You are welcome to bring your own alcohol, just no glass bottles, please. All fishing gear and tackle are included. The captain may catch live bait before the offshore trip, but when the bait isn’t biting, artificial lures will work just as well.

Have your cameras ready – as well as beautiful scenery, you may also see jackass penguins, seals, humpback whales, orca whales, and dolphins.

There’s no better time to book. The crew of Blue Atlantic Fishing Charters look forward to welcoming you aboard to begin creating some lifelong fishing memories together.

About the Charter Operator

Blue Atlantic Fishing Charters
Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa
I gave up my day job to follow my passion and that was the beginning of my charter career. I've been fishing from the shore since I can remember and started fishing offshore at the age of 14. After my first trip to sea I got hooked on deep sea fishing. My favorite fish to catch is Yellowfin Tuna, they are a super strong fighting fish and they test your skills and tackle with every hook up.
