Some of the strongest Yellow-Fin Tuna can be caught in this waters around Cape Point, some weighing over a 100kg. If you are lucky you might even encounter Big Eye Tuna or a Blue- Fin Tuna like the skipper himself. Other species like Long-fin tuna, Yellowtail, Snoek & Dorado can also be at the end of your line. On an in-shore charter you can have Snoek, Yellowtail, Red Roman and Hotnotsvis. Captain Delon Walker has been fishing and diving in these waters around False Bay for the past 28 years and know the area like the back of his hand. In False Bay he can let you experience some other activities which can add to your in-shore adventure,  a trip to Seal Island which might include a Great White sighting and lots of Cape Fur Seals, pelagic birding, whale watching in season and spearfishing at various locations. Being a family man he also knows what to do with children and how to make their day as exciting and unforgettable.

We have a 30Nautical Mile Radar and the Garmin is also equipped with AIS (Automatic Identification System).

I have been catching fish since I was 3years old and it is just part of my make up. I love catching fish more than anything else on earth and there is nothing else I want to do.
