WIT Sportfishing Kenya - Watamu

If you’re in the center of Kenya’s rich coast, then a fishing charter to the heart of the Indian Ocean is in order. Fortunately, Waterfords “Whatever IT Takes” is based out of Watamu, taking you offshore for some serious fishing action.

The professional crew will prioritize your needs, making sure you have a productive and thrilling day out. Captain Nas Khan and his team are passionate fishermen, with plenty of tournament wins to their name, so they know exactly what it takes to land the biggest fish. Get ready for a fishing trip like no other!

The 37’ Bertram offshore sportfishing boat is a joy to behold. The luxurious, air-conditioned cabin comes fitted with comfortable seating, a bunk, kitchen, and private toilet. Meanwhile, there’s space on deck for 4 to fish at the same time, while the rest look on. The crew will provide plenty of drinks, and they can even provide snacks and lunch for a minimal charge.

She also features everything you could want for a productive day out. Troll from the downriggers and outriggers, or test your hand at bottom fishing with heavy tackle, using the latest Penn, Shimano, and Daiwa gear. When you feel the bite on the end of your line, settle into the fighting chair to give you the edge over the fish.

Get ready for an intense battle against Marlin, Sailfish, Snapper, Mahi Mahi, Swordfish, Kingfish, and more, with December through March offering the best time of year. You’ll be made to work hard to land these beauties, so the taste of success at the end of the day will be even better!

The crew will clean and fillet your catch at the end of your trip, and they’ll even point you to a nearby restaurant. For just $5 you’ll have your catch cooked up for you to enjoy right away!

There’s nothing left for you to do before coming aboard, as Waterfords “Whatever IT Takes” has you covered. Come aboard to live out your fishing fantasies in some of the world’s best waters, make new friends, and create lifelong memories!

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.
