Albatross Charters

1 Mida Creek Road
Watamu, Kenya

Albatross Charters runs offshore adventures of a variety of lengths out of Watamu, Kenya, targeting a range of species including Marlin, Sailfish, Giant Trevally, Amberjack, Barracuda and more. Watamu is known for its beautiful white beaches and coral gardens, and for the stunning Watamu Marine National Park and Reserve, 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 ft Blackfin cruiser powered by twin 280HP 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, including 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, and a comfortable interior complete with a toilet, bed, multimedia system, and plenty of space to get out of the sun and rest on those long trips offshore.

Albatross Charters specialises in offshore trolling for big game species, from Marlin to GTs, and everything in between. 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 in order 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!
