WIT Sportfishing Kenya – Malindi

Kenya’s coastline is awash with exciting and delicious fish, and Waterfords “Whatever IT Takes” is here to take you to hunt them. Get your fish on in the rich waters of the Indian Ocean, as you head beyond the reefs to the deep waters in search of monster fish.

Who better to take you to sea than an experienced, local captain? Captain Nas Khan has been boating for over 25 years, building his own in 1994 before buying “Whatever IT Takes” in 2010. A passionate fisherman, he loves sharing the experience with others, and will stop at nothing to put a smile on your face.

The 37’ Bertram offshore sportfishing vessel is a true thing of beauty. Strong and powerful, she’ll make for a dry ride out to the deep water, with plenty of comfortable seating and bunks for up to 6 guests. Make yourselves at home on deck or in the air-conditioned cabin and settle in for a thrilling day’s fishing.

Bottom fish the nearshore reefs for beauties such as Nannygai, Cobia, Kingfish, and Trevallies, but that’s just a warm-up for the thrilling action you’ll find in the deeps. Troll the open waters over the course of 5, 10, or even 24 hours and you’ll be sure to catch the bite of some of the ocean’s most prestigious creatures.

Sailfish, Marlin, Swordfish, and Tuna are just some of the prized creatures who call these waters home, and you’ll need to be on your best to battle it out with these beauties and land the catch of a lifetime.

The crew will clean and fillet your catch at the end of the day, so you can enjoy the fruits of your labor at a beachside restaurant right away! Come and experience an all-round fishing experience with Waterfords “Whatever IT Takes,” as you see big game fishing at its finest!

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.
