East Africa Fishing Yacht Charters

Oceans Islands and Safaris is the leading operator of yacht charters in East Africa. They manage and operate yachts in the Quirimbas Archipelago, as well as the islands of the Mafia, Pemba and Zanzibar Archipelagoes. With over 15 years of experience operating in the area, the company knows how to provide an excellent service and put you on fish.

Whether you want to fish with conventional tackle or fly fishing gear, this 40ft Maxim Fly Bridge Power Catamaran offers an exceptional fishing platform to any angler who comes on board. Fully supplied with top end trolling, jigging and spinning/ popping rods and reels and a comprehensive selection of terminal tackle and lures, you will be well equipped to fish for the large variety of species that inhabit the ocean to the east of Africa. Fly fishermen will benefit from the two 18ft centre console skiffs that accompany the vessel and allow them to reach areas a large boat would not be able to access. The three cabins and two private bathrooms will ensure everyone on board can have the luxury of peace and quiet when necessary, and quality kitchen furnishings allow catches to be cooked fresh during the trip.

Covered in sandy beaches and surrounded by a rich and virtually untouched fishery, the islands of Quirimbas have become known as the ‘new Seychelles’ with good reason. The area’s unexploited fishery wields Kingfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Queen Mackerel, Queenfish, Dorado and Barracuda, and while all the species available around St Lazarus Banks are still being discovered, Dogtooth Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Salfish, Black Kingfish and Ignoblis (GT) have been caught frequently in the area.

The vessel is manned by a professional captain and crew with extensive bluewater sailing experience, while the operations director has completed 19 Atlantic Crossings and skippered charter yachts in East Africa for 10 years. This knowledgeable and helpful team will lead you to the unique opportunity to fish the unexplored seas east of Mozambique.
