Rock & Surf Guided Expeditions

Taking a trip with Rock & Surf Guided Expeditions is one of the best ways to experience the fishing opportunities of South Africa without ever leaving the coast.

Join Captain Joao, who’s been fishing these waters for over 2 decades. He’ll show you a different approach to catching fish, as you’ll stay on the beach the whole time. So forget about your seasickness and crowded boats. Enjoy the sand under your feet and take as much space as you need.

This type of fishing is unusual at first but when you feel that something’s biting on the other side of the line, the same rule applies - don’t stop reeling. You’ll go after Bluefish, Grunter, Grouper, Leerfish, Bream, and Kob. Capt. Joao lets you keep the catch if you’re planning to eat it and he’ll also clean it for you free of charge. You can bring your cooler, to keep the fillets fresh.

Make the whole experience even more comfortable and fun. Bring your deckchairs, sun umbrellas, and play your favorite music. This works even better for families with kids or any group where not everybody is crazy about fishing.

Capt. Joao covers your fishing licenses, equipment, snacks, and drinks. But feel free to bring whatever you want.

Fishing has never been more relaxing. Join Rock & Surf Guided Expeditions for a day of bliss.
