Zanzibar Local Fishing and Deep Sea

Catch the excitement with Zanzibar Local Fishing and Deep Sea charters. Leave behind the modern yachts and experience fishing like a true local! This charter offers an authentic day out, where you’ll see what “fishing for a living” truly means. You don’t need a previous experience to join, just a bit of curiosity and a positive attitude.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 40’ catamaran boat. This spacious vessel has enough room for eight anglers to fish at the same time. There’s lots of seating space in the shade, so when you’re not casting, you can sit back and enjoy the breeze and the sound of waves. There’s snorkeling equipment on the boat, just make sure to request it in advance.

During your trip, you’ll focus on a local handline technique to experience how native fisherman catch fish. If it proves to be too hard or you simply want to try out something else, you can also switch to trolling. There’s lots of different fish you can catch, from Amberjack, Almaco, and different types of Grouper, to Sailfish, Marlin, and Tuna.

You can keep the catch and the crew will clean it for you free of charge. Kids of all ages are welcome, so you can easily make this an unforgettable family experience. Your fishing equipment is fully covered. You can bring cold beverages and some snacks for the day.
