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!

About the Captain

Steve Potter
Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa
Member since August 2016
Steve Potter is the most experienced angler and skipper aboard the Beluga. With over 25 years’ experience both on deck and behind the helm, he has never stopped searching relentlessly for excellent fish. His prowess speaks for itself: he has represented the Western Province in both the Marlin Nationals and the Tuna Nationals, both as angler and skipper, and he took home the gold medal of the 2007 Marlin Nationals with a 632 lbs Black Marlin. Steve has travelled widely to pursue his love of angling and has fished in areas such as Mozambique, Great Britain, the USA, Kenya, and more. He fishes with his youngest son and crewman on Beluga, Joe Potter, an avid angler who is rapidly following in his father’s footsteps.
