Seychelles Yacht Charter - uShaka

Seychelles Yacht Charter has been providing 5-star angling adventures for over a decade in the warm waters around Seychelles. Step aboard the “uShaka” for anything from a few hours to a few days and take on Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, GT, Groupers, Amberjack, and so much more. You really have your work cut out for you fishing here.

Take one look at the uShaka and you know you’re in for something very special. This 51’ Riviera sportfishing yacht was built in 2016 and still looks like she came out of the box yesterday. The vessel has masses of space inside and out, but Capt. Francis limits groups to 8 (4 on overnight charters) to make sure you have the best experience possible.

The uShaka features everything you would expect of a fully-fledged cruiser. Her spacious interior boasts a well-equipped galley, private staterooms, full bathrooms with showers, and plenty of seating to relax in air-conditioned comfort. Up on deck, you’ll find an enclosed flybridge to take in the view and acres of deck space fore and aft to sunbathe or fish the day away.

You will never be short of action on the uShaka. Even half-day trips will give you a real taste of the area’s offshore bite, getting you on Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and sometimes Sailfish. Spend the whole day onboard, and you can add GT, Amberjack, and even Marlin to the list.

Head out on a multi-day trip, and the sky’s the limit! Enjoy 3 full days locked in battle with sea monsters, then relax and watch the sun go down with a glass of champagne and a delicious, freshly cooked meal. After that, head down to your comfortable bed and let the soft roll of the waves rock you to sleep.

Captain Francis and his skilled team know that each trip is about more than just catching fish. They will get you on some real monsters and give you the fight of your life, of course, but they also take pride in giving you a level of service above and beyond what you would find elsewhere.

I have been in the industry for over 10 years now. I love it when I go out with my clients and we interact and have fun together, enjoy a great day of fishing, and when we come back the guests are happy. That makes me happy, too, as I know I've done a good job. we always look forward to them coming back.
