Jacqueline Deep Sea Charters

Jacqueline Deep Sea Charters invites you to discover some of the most diverse fishing opportunities in the world. Join your skipper – Willem Grobler – for a day out on the waters of South Africa and let him show you the finest fishing grounds around.

Willem will work hard to provide you an experience that you’ll never forget. Apart from catching that big one, you will be able to have some fun in the sun and take in all the beauty of the surrounding waters.

Spend your day game and bottom fishing in Richards Bay and target anything from Barracuda to Tuna, Amberjack, Sailfish, and many more. If the weather conditions allow, you will also be able to try trolling.

The ‘Jacqueline’ is a 23’ (7m) Boston Whaler fishing vessel, which comes powered by twin 90 HP Mariner engines. She is a great boat for the local waters, equipped with everything you need for a successful day on the water. The Jacqueline features all the necessary rods, reels, tackle, and lures for you to use. Fish cleaning service can also be arranged.

You will need to purchase a valid fishing license before you make your first cast, which can be done at a local post office. Your lunch and drinks are also welcome on board.

I love fishing, it's a passion and it gives me great pleasure as it's my life and has become my income! I started this service in St Lucia, KwaZulu Natal and recently relocated to Richardsbay to continue giving the best service you deserve. I prefer game and bottom fishing. We will troll till the reef (if the sea conditions allow it) to catch the big game fish and do bottom fishing on the reef.
