Xtreme Fishing Charters – Xtreme 1

Are you ready for an awesome adventure? Then book a trip with Xtreme Fishing Charters in Cape Town for an unforgettable day out. Whether you’re looking for a family trip or are an experienced angler hunting a trophy catch, the team at Xtreme Fishing Charters have got you covered.

Captain John will be with you every step of the way on this boat. He began fishing for pelagics years ago but soon fell in love with arguably the biggest and hardest fighter – the Yellowfin Tuna. He loves to share his passion for catching Yellowfin and Longfin with his customers.

Step on board “Xtreme 1,” a 32’ offshore sport fishing boat, perfect for 6 anglers to fish from. This boat is fully decked out with all the safety and navigational features needed, and then some! You can fish with peace of mind aboard the Xtreme 1.

There are 2 types of trips on offer: inshore and offshore. The main targets inshore are Snoek and Yellowtail, which are perfect for family groups to target. Children need to be over 8 years of age and will have life vests provided.

Offshore fishing is about the Yellowfin Tuna, found 40 miles from shore. This will take 2 hours to get to, making this trip more suited for anglers with sturdy sea legs. You’ll also be able to target Skipjack and Albacore Tuna, along with the tasty Mahi Mahi.

The catch is shared between you and the crew. All fish are kept unless you pay the additional charge of 5000 ZAR to release the catch.

You’ll need to bring a jacket along for the chilly morning weather, as well as sunscreen, sunglasses, and spearfishing gear if you wish to spearfish. Leave the flips flops at the hotel!

Included in the price are all the rods, reels, food, drinks, and fishing license for the day.

Book an amazing day out with Xtreme Fishing Charters today. Families and serious anglers alike will love a trip with these guys!
