Knysna Deep Sea Fishing Charters

Enjoy a day of superb fishing on the prolific waters of South Africa with Knysna Deep Sea Fishing Charters! Join Captain Niekie and set out to explore ample angling opportunities around Knysna, and who knows, maybe hook yourself a trophy.

Hop aboard captain’s 25’ Butt Cat with twin 125 HP Mercury engines and plenty of room to accommodate up to 4 people. You’ll have all the necessary safety equipment and navigational electronics to take you to the bite, as well as outriggers that will help you cover more water while trolling. Bring food and drinks for the trip and your own icebox.

When it comes to the fish species that you could target, the sky is the limit! You can try your hand in bottom fishing for Musselcracker, Snapper, Grunter, and Cod or do some line fishing with rods for anything from King Mackerel to Kob. If you’d like to cook your catch after the trip, there are cleaning facilities available where you can clean and fillet your catch.

You don’t have to worry about bringing your own tackle, there will be rods, reels, and an assortment of bait on board. What you need to get is a valid fishing license, and some snacks and drinks will do you good.

Children who are at least 7 years old can join you on your trip and Capt. Niekie will do his best to organize a fun and engaging experience for everyone on board.

Find out just how fun fishing can be and head out on a thrill-seeking adventure with Knysna Deep Sea Fishing Charters!
