Gaf Adventures – Almirante Leite

Gaf Adventures offers yet another amazing adventure out of Santa Maria. This time, they have prepared a treat for all hard-core anglers out there. Get ready for 5 days of fishing with an experienced crew and in the company of other fishing enthusiasts, just like you. This is a perfect way to learn new things about catching fish, share the experiences with other fishermen, get a new trophy, and maybe even find a few new friends.

This adventure will take you to Almirante Leite Banks, which is 120 km east of Santa Marina and Inhaca Island. The Almirante Leite banks are situated in the warm Agulhas sea current and were formed by an underwater volcano. The sea bottom floor consists of numerous drop-offs and craters rising from 1000m to 60m below the surface.

You’ll be fishing on a 30’ Butt Cat boat that accommodates up to 6 guests. This catamaran is powered by twin 200 HP Suzuki engines and easily develops high speeds. Fishing this far offshore can be a challenge and for safety reasons, the boat will be equipped with a Satellite phone and VHF radio.

These fish-rich waters are unused by the sport fisherman and make it a very ideal and exciting destination targeting huge Yellowfin Tuna (20-90 kg), Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, Black, Blue, and Striped Marlin.

The crew will provide you with top-notch fishing equipment, including rods and reels of the best sportfishing brands. Get in touch to check what you need to bring for this trip, as you’ll spend several days on the boat.

Gaf Adventures always does their best to create the ultimate fishing experience. Join them and see what happens when you’re fishing with true enthusiasts and professionals.

Captain Laurens Koen has been fishing these waters for the past 3 decades and guided customers for two and a half. He's mastered all the best-hidden fishing spots and tricks of the local fish. He got his undying love of the ocean at just 5 years old, when he got his first pair of fins and a snorkeling mask. He feels lucky that he lives on the water and that what used to be his hobby has become his day job. Always doing everything in his power to help his customers catch as much fish as possible, Capt. Laurens and his team will make sure your trips are fun and successful!
