Lucky Sands Fishing Charters

Albert Meyer Drive
Margate NL, South Africa

Lucky Sands Fishing Charters is Margate’s ultimate adventure providing charter! Their crew knows where the fish are and will put you on it! They do all the hard work so you can relax and enjoy your exciting fishing adventure in the beautiful waters off of Shelly Beach.

Margate is a seaside town located just a little over 130 km from Durban on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast and enjoys pleasant weather year round. You can go swimming, surfing or snorkeling around the Blue Flagged Beaches, or take a fishing trip into the rich offshore waters.

Your trip will take you into the sea at Margate, Shelly Beach and Port Shepstone area on the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

There is an array of species waiting to bite; from the delicious Mutton Snapper and Mahi Mahi to King Mackerel, Salmon, Bluefin Tuna, Grunter and other species that call these waters home. The crew of Lucky Sands will provide you with the fishing gear and live baits, and you will have a first mate on hand to help you with your catch.

You will fish aboard a 28-foot Butt Cat boat that features two Yamaha 150 HP motors and a flybridge. This speedy and purposely built boat will take you to the most productive fishing grounds with ease and comfort. It features an icebox for your catch, a fighting chair and all the necessary safety equipment and electronics. Please note, a fishing license is required and must be obtained by yourself prior to the trip.

Lucky Sands Fishing Charters will take you on a trip where, along the Hibiscus coast line on the southern tip of Africa, you can feel the energy rise as fishermen meet the day at dawn. They expectantly prepare for a day out on the ocean, hoping for the catch of the day, or at the very least, an outrageous fisherman’s tale to take home to their families and friend. For nothing tastes fresher than the catch of the day at supper, be it on a braai or in the kitchen.
