Just Fishing Durban

3 Maritime Place
Durban NL, South Africa

Just Fishing Durban invites you to explore the east coast of South Africa. Join the crew for a fun and action-packed day on the waters of the ‘Sunshine State’. See Durban from the water, cruise the harbour with your friends and admire the coastline. Take as many species off your personal angling bucket list as possible. The choice is yours!

Step aboard a 28’ Butt Cat walkaround deck. This is a spacious, seaworthy fishing machine that comes powered by twin 140 HP Suzuki engines. The boat is outfitted with navigational electronics and many other professional accessories. There is a portable toilet on board, along with a bed to take a nap in between bites. The vessel features a built-in cooler box to keep your catch fresh during the day. All aboard!

Moored by the old Cafe Fish at Durban Harbour, the boat is conveniently located in a few minutes walk from the parking lot. Once you meet your skipper and his first mate, they will guide you through the basics. The crew will make sure you know how to use the tackle before you make your first cast.

Just Fishing Durban has tailored a variety of packages to meet your specific needs. Test the waters on a half day trip or get them all to yourself on a full-day adventure. Bottom fish for whatever species lurks below. Battle big game fish and troll the deep waters. Or just cruise the harbour while sipping your favorite drink and take in all the beauty of the surrounding areas!

Take as many species from your angling bucket list as possible. Target Rockfish, Wahoo, and Shad. Go after Barracuda, Bream, Mahi-Mahi, Musselcrcker, and Grunter. Battle with Yellowfin Tuna, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, and many more.

All full-day trips come inclusive with bait and tackle. If you book a half-day charter, feel free to bring your own gear or rent a rod and trace at R100 extra per person.

Took my dad and my family (wife and 2 daughters) harbour fishing. We had a lovely 5 hr trip with some small fish that we put back
All in all a wonderful day on the water (pity about the fish!)
Skipper and his mate were attentive, helpful and great sports at all times. My youngest daughter loved her fishing trip and was even putting on her own bait towards the end.
