Albatross Charters

Join Albatross Charters to explore Watamu, known for its beautiful white beaches and coral gardens. The Watamu Marine National Park and Reserve is home to not just fish and turtles but also monkeys, elephants, and a range of rare and exotic birds. This is a paradise location even without fishing, and the awesome array of offshore species is the icing on the cake of the perfect vacation.

The Albatross is a 33’ Blackfin cruiser powered by twin 280 HP Ford Sabres up to a respectable 18 knots. The vessel has plenty of room aboard for 4 anglers, and comes equipped with everything you will need for the perfect day’s fishing. There’s GPS, fishfinder, outriggers, downriggers, a fighting chair, livewell, and even tuna tubes, for those looking to bag the very best the oceans have to offer.

The Albatross also boasts a spacious flybridge where you can relax and take in the views between bites. The interior is comfortable, complete with a toilet, bed, multimedia system, and plenty of space to get out of the sun and rest on those long trips offshore.

The crew specializes in offshore trolling for big game species, like Marlin, Sailfish, Giant Trevally, Amberjack, and Barracuda. On every trip, you will be provided with tournament grade Shimano and Penn rods with Tiagra and Tld reels, as well as top-quality live bait and lures to give you the best chance possible of pulling in something special.

Captain Imraan Moosa is a skilled and professional seaman and guide, and he will work tirelessly on every trip to make sure you end the day with some amazing memories as well as great fish!

Explore the beautiful waters of Kenya with Albatross Charters and have the time of your life!
