Aquaholics Fishing Charters

Aquaholics Fishing Charters invites you for a day of angling fun on Durban’s inshore and offshore waters! With Captain Linleigh Govender at the helm, you’ll hit some of the most productive fishing grounds in the area, and he’ll share his tips on how to land your next trophy.

Capt. Linleigh has a range of trips on offer, and he’s happy to tailor them to your fishing preferences. On harbor excursions, you’ll focus on the most popular nearshore species like Jack Crevalle, Snoek, Snapper, Bluefish, and more. If prowling deep waters is more your thing, then trophy Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Dusky Grouper, and Blacktip Trevally are all in the cards.

You’ll have all the necessary fishing equipment at your disposal, as well as live bait and an assortment of lures. On longer trips, there will be a first mate on board to help you with everything you need, so that you can fish in full comfort.

The boat that will be your fishing platform for the day is a 30’ Butt Cat with twin 200 HP Yamaha engines. You can come aboard with up to 9 more people and enjoy a fun-filled day on the water. There’s a cooler on board to keep your catch fresh, a live bait well, and reliable navigational electronics to show you where the fish hide.

Whether your traveling with your kids or your angling buddies, Capt. Linleigh will go out of his way to show you a good time. He’ll have life jackets for everyone, so you just need to stock up on food and refreshments, and your adventure with Aquaholics Fishing Charters can begin!
