You’ll depart from Kizimkazi and head out to Menai Bay, towards the south coast of Zanzibar. This area has plenty of uninhabited, picturesque islands and sandbanks, as well as fascinating marine life.
Captain Zandre is your guide on this adventure. He’s been hooked on fishing ever since he was 3 years old. He specializes in topwater fishing with poppers and stick baits, but he also does trolling and jigging. It all depends on what you want to do.
Activities that require special equipment need to be requested in advance. For spearfishing, it’s a must that you have the experience of at least 15 meters deep since you’ll be freediving. The captain prefers his clients to bring their own equipment, but he can arrange it as well. If you’re more into snorkeling, the captain will provide the equipment for an additional charge ($10 per person). When it comes to flyfishing, you’ll need to bring your own equipment.
There’s lots of fast and big fish you can catch in the area and that is the reason anglers from all over the world come here. Your main targets will be Giant Trevally, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and many more. The catch is usually released or kept by the crew, the guests can usually keep one fish.
Beach Bums Fishing Charters accommodate up to 3 guests on their boat. Pick your fishing buddies and head out into the world of excitement!
