Soolyman Charters - 33' Sportfisher

When it comes down to the angling paradise of Kenya, you can’t go wrong with Soolyman Charters. Their captains are all experienced anglers with a wealth of local knowledge. If you want to make a great catch possible, there is a trip for you.

Their action-packed season runs from July until mid-April. From the beginning of the season until October, you will be able to battle gigantic Black Marlin, fat Giant Trevally, enormous Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, and Kingfish.

From December onwards, you will be able to enjoy the main Sailfish season, during which you will also be able to get your hands on Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin, along with the mighty Broadbill Swordfish.

All of that magic happens aboard a 33’ Aquabelle Sportfisher, which was renovated especially for raising Billfish and has already achieved a Fantasy Slam, along with countless Super Grand Slams over the years.

The boat is equipped with Penn International rods from 30 to 80 lb, as well as Shimano Tiagra and TLD, and 30-130lb lines. You will be trolling lures of live bait and deep dropping for Snapper and Swordfish. If you want to try jigging and popping, you will need to bring your own equipment.

A transfer to/from the Malindi airport can be arranged for an extra fee (around 20$ per trip.)
