Cape Town Fishing Charters

Berth No.1 And Berth No.2 Hout…
Cape Town WC, South Africa

Operating out of the picturesque fishing village of Hout Bay, a 20 minute coastal drive from Cape Town city centre, Cape Town Fishing Charters is a family run charter company that prides itself on finding the right fish for the right clients!

Cape Town Fishing Charters’ boat, the ‘Beluga’, is a 28 ft Magnum walk around boat that was built specifically for fishing the local area. With a twin hull, the boat offers a smooth ride, and its twin outboard motors give it a quiet and fast ride (given the right conditions of course!). Fitted with all the appropriate marine electronics, including fish finders and GPS navigation, the boat will get you to the fish in the most effective way possible.

The company offers a variety of fishing trips, allowing you to choose between staying close to shore to fish for species such as Yellowtail and Cape Snoek, and travelling from 25-35 nautical miles offshore to fish for huge Yellowfin Tuna. From January to March you will even have the chance to target one of sportfishing’s ultimate goals - the Black Marlin, which migrates past the southern tip of South Africa once a year.

With over 25 years of offshore fishing experience, owner and skipper of Cape Town Fishing Charters Captain Steve Potter will be sure to get you ”strapped in” to some good fish!

    Although this trip is Refered to as inshore fishing we usually run the 20 or so miles along the coast to Cape Point in pursuit of the illusive Cape Yellowtail and the Cape Snoek , a species very similar in appearance to the Wahoo . MASSIVE shoals of Snoek accumulate all along the Cape coastline when the correct conditions occur bringing some fast and furious sport for both commercial and sport fishermen alike .
