Piranha Group - Bella Donna

Hout Bay
Cape Town WC, South Africa

The Piranha Group offer action packed fishing charters from Cape Town Specializing in offshore adventures for Tuna and more, they offer every person who comes aboard their boat an exciting and memorable day on the water. Whether you are new to fishing or have been doing it all your life, you are warmly welcomed aboard, and children from the age of five up are also invited to join in the fun.

The Bella Donna is the newest addition to the Piranah Group’s fleet. At 33 ft, she can take up to ten guests on a memorable fishing adventure, and her twin Yamaha engines will power her up to speeds of over 40 knots to get you to the best fishing spots fast. Fully equipped with Garmin electronics and top-of-the-range gear by Penn, Shimano, and Diawa, this boat will give everyone aboard the chance to hook a fish to remember.

The team at Piranha Group are fluent in a wide range of fishing techniques, from fly fishing to bottom fishing and just about everything in between. While you will certainly spend a fair amount of your trip trolling, you could also have the chance to try bottom fishing, jigging, popping, or even handline fishing if you are up for a challenge. The year-round fishery of the Western Cape will give you plenty of opportunities to put your skills to the test, and with sea mounts that rise from depths of a thousand meters to just forty meters you will be in with a very good chance of hooking game fish such as Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Snoek, Yellowtail Amberjack, Cape Salmon, and many other species.

    Our deep sea fishing charter generally begins early when we cast off from our launch sites. We make our way heading for Cape Point to see if we maybe get some Yellow Tail on the way before heading out to the tuna grounds. This could be up to 40 Nm (nautical miles) but generally, it's between 15 and 35 Nm (nautical miles) from Cape Point. We target Yellowfin Tuna. Very often Long Fin Tuna, Big Eye Tuna, Bluefin Tuna, Skipjack, Katonkel, Yellow Tail, Snoek and Dorado (Mahi Mahi) are also landed.
