Fresh Catch Ocean Charters

There’s a fish with your name on it in Knysna and Fresh Catch Ocean Charters will help you catch it!

These waters are known for Gurnard, Kob, Musselcracker, Yellowtail Amberjack, and more – with any luck, you’ll hook into a few! On the day of your trip, you’re likely to troll and bottom fish.

If you’re traveling with the family, you will be glad to know that kids are welcome aboard! If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, be sure to ask if there’s one on board. Also, remember to bring snacks so that nobody gets grumpy on an empty stomach!

You’ll find yourself aboard a 28’ Catamaran with space for 10 passengers. It has everything you need for a productive day on the water. Rods, reels, and tackle are covered by the charter, along with lures. Live bait is included, but it’s good to ask about this so you know if you’ll be catching it yourself.

Before coming aboard, you’ll need to buy a local fishing license for everyone in your group. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species may be off-limits or require a special tag, so make sure you know what to expect. Don’t leave home without sunglasses, a hat, sunscreen (non-spray), and bottled water. If you’d like to bring other drinks, just ask. Alcohol is not allowed.
