Reel Therapy

Reel Therapy offers you an amazing fishing and sightseeing experience in the exotic waters of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. It’s a place rich in sea life, dolphins, whales, and amazing birds. Let the captain share his passion for the city and ocean with you. Join him on a top-class fishing adventure as you discover South Africa’s waters and enjoy the therapy of ocean experience!

Your journey starts on a 17’ Super Duck inflatable outboard boat powered by an 85 HP Yamaha engine. The boat can sit up to 3 guests and it has all the quality navigation gear needed for a successful trip. You’ll have an ice-box to keep your food and drinks cool, and the boat’s also got a livewell.

The captain can take you nearshore and offshore. You’ll chase whatever’s on the bite as well as explore reefs and wrecks. The species you’ll target are Great Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, Yellowtail Amberjack, Tuna, and Wahoo. You’ll use light tackle and fish in many different ways – bottom and deep sea, spinning, popping, trolling, and drift fishing. Kids are more than welcome on board as long as they are 10 or older. For the sake of environment, smoking is not allowed during the trip. You can keep all the fish you catch except for billfish.

You’re covered for all the fishing equipment, bait, and drinks. You’ll just need your licenses and some food for the trip.

Come to Durban and feel the healing power of the Indian Ocean while you relax and enjoy fishing with an experienced and friendly crew.

The captain grew up in and on the sea. Surfing, free diving, sailing, and lifeguarding have taught him to love the ocean and all the beauty that can be seen here in Durban. Here summers are amazing and so is the possibility of catching your personal bests. Come and feel the passion and excitement of the freedom of the ocean adventures. It's wise to know that although the captain always takes every effort to put you on the fish, there are some days that you will come home empty-handed.
