WIT Sportfishing Kenya - Lamu

Come aboard Waterfords “Whatever IT Takes” and discover the riches of the Indian Ocean in style. Aboard a luxury vessel, you’ll head to the deep waters, getting your hands on the biggest, strongest, and most delicious fish out there.

Captain Nas Khan is a passionate boatsman and fisherman for decades, who’s been running charters since 2012. Along with his dedicated crew of two mates, he promises to give you a helping hand to live out your fishing dreams.

Step aboard the 37’ Bertram offshore sportfishing boat and enter a whole new world of fishing. This plush boat comes fitted with all creature comforts to make you feel at home, as the air-conditioned cabin features a kitchen, bunk, and private toilet. Take cover in there or enjoy the open oceans on the spacious deck with your nearest and dearest.

A serious fishing vessel, she also possesses downriggers and outriggers to help you troll. Utilize these to attract the bite of your target fish, or try your hand at bottom fishing or jigging. Whatever you fancy, you’ll want to make use of the fighting chair to steady yourself in battle against some monster fish.

Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Swordfish, Kingfish, and all the other fish you’ll go after promise not to come up without a fight. Get ready for an intense battle in the heart of the ocean to fill the boat with plenty of delicious meat.

The crew will clean and fillet your catch, giving you the chance to enjoy the fruits of your labor right away. They’ll even recommend a nearby restaurant that will cook your catch for just $5. What better way to end the day than over a delicious meal that you’ve rightfully earned?

You’ll have plenty of water and soft drinks on board, and Capt. Nas is happy to provide snacks and lunch at a nominal charge. You’ll have everything you need for a fun, productive, and memorable day out, so what more could you want? Waterfords “Whatever IT Takes” is calling your name to join an incredible fishing adventure!

About the Captain

Member since August 2019
A boating/Deep Sea Fishing hobby with my first Boat in 1988, culminating in building a 26’ boat in 1994, turned into Captain Nas buying a 37’ Bertram in 2010 and the rest is history. After plenty of people asked him whether he did charters, he gave it considerable consideration and has been running trips since 2012. With plenty of competition trophies to his name, he’s proud of his record and promises to show you" Whatever It Takes" to fill the boat with monster fish. Along with two mates, Capt. Nas will give you a helping hand to land that dream fish, sharing all his local knowledge with you.
