Fishing Team Mahi Charters

Explore the waters around Cape Town and see the hidden treasures this city has to offer. There’s a large variety of fish species and technique you can practice, so you can always count on amazing action, no matter what time of year you visit. Join Captain Gareth and get ready to enjoy the day of excitement!

It all starts on a 19’ Sea Cat 565 boat that accommodates up to 3 guests. She’s powered by twin 70 HP Yamaha engines and reaches the maximum speed of 24 knots. This means you’ll swiftly glide to your fishing spot and save more time for catching fish. The boat is equipped with navigational and safety gear, a cooler, and multimedia system.

If you prefer staying closer to the shore, you’ll have the chance to target species like Squid, False Albacore, Snoek, and Kob. But the real action lies miles offshore, where big game fishing awaits. This is where you can get your hands on Mahi Mahi, Striped Marlin, Amberjack, and several types of Tuna. If you’ve always wanted to catch an “A list” fish, this is the place to be.

The captain will take care of your fishing equipment and bottled water. If you want to taste your catch, he’ll also clean and bag it for you free of charge. You only need to purchase your fishing license in advance and pack some food, drinks, and sun protection.
