Majestic Cruises

Join Majestic Cruises for an exciting day of fishing off the southern coast of Western Cape. You’ll have a knowledgable crew guiding you to some of the hottest fishing grounds just a few miles off of Hermanus’ sandy beaches. You’re invited to join them on an unforgettable journey, catch lots of fish, and create lasting memories!

You’ll be fishing from a spacious 40’ Gecat Marine catamaran, equipped with top-quality electronics, fishing tackle, and safety gear. We’re talking outriggers, downriggers, Tuna tubes, a live bait tank, snorkeling equipment, and much more.

The boat features a large flybridge from which you and the family can enjoy the view. You can also appreciate the panoramic view from inside the cabin and enjoy some of the boat’s state-of-the-art amenities, including a kitchen, TV, and multimedia system. She also comes with a private toilet, shower, and beds so you can relax and freshen up after a long trip.

Majestic Cruises offer a wide range of activities, including reef and Tuna fishing. On reef trips, you’ll spend 5 hours targeting local species such as Red Roman, Hottentot, Nannygai, Dusky Grouper, Giant Trevally, Yellowtail Amberjack (Kingfish), and Barracuda.

Tuna trips will see you fishing between 20–50 miles off the coast, chasing Yellowfin Tuna, False Albacore, and Skipjack. A few other target species you may encounter are Bluefish (Shad), Snoek, Kob, Queenfish, and Garrick (Leerfish). These water are brimming with marine wildlife as well, including seals, penguins, dolphins, and orca pods, so be sure to have your camera ready!

Top-of-the-line gear made by Black Magic is included, as well as your fishing license for the day. Drinks, snacks, and lunch are also provided, along with fish cleaning and filleting services.

Just be sure to bring some sun protection before you leave and you’re all set. Get ready to experience South Africa like never before and join Majestic Cruises on the adventure of a lifetime!
